Headshots and Personal Branding

Adelaide Author Cheryl Williss’s personal branding || SA Authors headshot photographer Adelaide

Adelaide author Cheryl Williss was about to publish her next book when she approached me for updated headshots.

She explained that she wanted some fresh new images that would reflect her outgoing personality.

As well as being an author writing about South Australian history, she is a public speaker.

A previous career in accounting influenced her dress style and she felt most professional with a shirt and jacket in crisp whites and blacks.

I created three different images for Cheryl.

The first is her favourite – crisp white shirt and blue jeans, sitting cross legged to reveal her playful side.

The second and third images incorporated a more sophisticated look; one with a black and white jacket adding some flair

Thilans professional headshot With a legal background working as a barrister and having worked overseas in different capacities, Thilan brings rich experience to this role.

Thilan approached me for some fresh new corporate headshots to represent her personal branding on her website. The brief was to create both studio based and outdoor portraits, in her signature look – a range of brightly coloured dresses.

We included hair styling in keeping with her usual look with hairstylist Alyce Brand and created a light natural makeup with makeup artist Andrea Wauer. 

We also wanted to include some less formal, laughing images, to show her warmth, and approachability. Because life’s not all serious!

The outside images were taken at Wittunga Botanic Gardens, Blackwood.
