Personal Branding Corporate Business Portraits - Hogg & Associates Lawyers

Mackintosh Photography recently had the exciting opportunity to create and capture some beautiful portraits of Elizabeth Hogg. Whom after many years working for the big law firms in the big smoke of Sydney decided to set up her own hip family law practice in Summer Hill, Sydney.

Elizabeth decided to book one of our personalised portrait branding packages. They're tailor made and crafted to suit each person's individual needs and branding. Elizabeth like what she heard and saw because I took the time to listen to her needs and to work around her hectic schedule. Everyone is different. I take the time to listen to your specific image and branding requirements. Your companies style and image including the corporate message is all taken into account. I listen to you and together we create your own personal look for your portraits. We can assist with your hair and makeup, suggested clothing and sourcing the ideal locations for the photography shoot in Sydney or Melbourne. 

It is great to see clients new websites using the images I produced for them. Architectural interior and exterior images of the office/practice can also be captured. Including staff portraits and lifestyle corporate portraits of your colleagues interacting with each other. These extra images can truly give your website a personal and genuine feel. Whilst showing to your potential clients who you are and what you represent.

Cheap generic stock images can not do that for your business! Be unique and authentic.

Please have a look at Elizabeth's website. It's well done and full of excellent information.

Corporate Portraits - WeWork, 333 George Street Sydney

Recently I had the pleasure to photograph Barry Meskin Patent and Trademark Attorney at Baxter IP Patent & Trademark Attorneys.

Barry understood the need the to update his Personal Branding Images. You need to stay fresh and looking up to date when building your business profile. You can't keep using the same image for all your social media, people will get stale of seeing the same image. You will create a better memorable impact with a series of professional portraits. The portraits are ideal for LinkedIn, Company Website, Blogging, PR Announcements and Print Marketing material.

Our Personal Branding Photography Shoots are designed around you and your business. We collaborate together and create the look and feel of your photography shoot. We can guide you with styling assistance, photography location and hair and makeup. The location of this shoot was WeWork at 333 George Street Sydney. Actually, the building was designed by a client of mine Grimshaw Architects. WeWork offers a range different cool locations and looks within the same location. Excellent for photography purposes. including an amazing outdoor terrace with stunning Sydney City views.

Educational Architecture Photography - St Benedict’s Catholic College

Mackintosh Photography has been photographing St Benedict’s Catholic College in Oran Park in Sydney's South West for numerous years during the development of the various stages designed by Fulton Trotter Architects in Bondi Sydney. The College is a new secondary school developed on a greenfield site in Sydney’s South-West. The architects developed a master plan for the site in 2011 to be completed across a number of stages. Previous stages have included a covered outdoor learning center, the School’s administration building, the science building including 6 teaching labs and associated prep areas, food and technology block, art's building and the latest stage 4 is the new school library building. 

Colour is an important feature in the design of the library with bold colours throughout all the school, which brings learning spaces to fruition. It was used to create focal points, break up the learning space and to accentuate important elements found within the interior.

I enjoy shooting this school and seeing it grow and develop. Almost like the school pupils themselves. The many architectural design features of the newly growing school features, bold colours with dynamic soaring roof lines and strong graphic signage all work to give the desired sense of presence to the school.

Futon Trotter Architects will be entering this project into this year's Architectural Industry Awards. We regularly photograph architects completed projects and sometimes during construction. Architects commission photography of their projects for several reasons such as industry awards like The National Architecture Awards, to raise the practice's profile through marketing on their website and social media like Instagram. And of course to help win new business through showcasing the practices latest designs in their portfolio.

Headshots Sydney

It's that time of year to update your headshot! The new year brings new staff and new marketing budgets and new business growth. So it's very important that your company presents its staff in the best possible way. The photo studio offers several types of business portraits. From the classical headshot to creative environmental portraits photographed on location in the streets of Sydney. We can photograph one key business person right through the entire staff in the business. The studio can also photograph your corporate portrait in your own office. We will bring all our professional lighting and background system and set up your own portrait studio in your boardroom. How easy and efficient is that.

The business portrait photography session below is a great example of what can be achieved in a couple of hours. We can do mix portraits. Like Headshots and the enviromentlal portraits and also team shots of the staff working. This is Jan Mcleod, have a look at her website The Capacity Equation. Jan contacted the studio because she needed to update her corporate profile. Jan also needed a range of photographs of herself for all aspects of her business. She needed the portraits to help market the business. The end use of her portraits will be for the Website, Linked In headshot, social media like Facebook and Instagram. Jan is a coach, mentor, speaker and consultant specialising in the areas of high performance, wellbeing and change strategy. So she also needed a new look for her bussiness coaching and event/conference speaking roles. In business, your have to look professional and yet approachable too.  I believe we achieved exactly that. 

Relaxed Family Portraits - Sydney's Inner west

Christmas is fast approaching. What will you do or buy differently this year for your loved ones and family? There is nothing more unique a stunning than one of our family portraits. Mackintosh Photography has Gift Vouchers available for purchase from $200. And it includes a $100 photography credit to go towards purchase Art Prints  and Albums.

Just like the Gosling family featured below in this blog. They absolutely loved the photography experience. Because it was genuinely fun and relaxed. Not at all what they were expecting. That's because Justin Mackintosh our principal  photographer has been photographing people and capturing their portrait for nearly 15 years. He know's how to make people feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera.

Oh and dont forget the most cherished family member can also be in the portrait session. The family dog. Pet photography is pretty cool and fun too.

We can use your family home for the photography location, as this makes for a more of a personal touch. Or if you prefer a natural setting we often use some of the wonderful local Sydney Harbour side parks in Balmain, Birchgrove and Rozelle in Sydney's Inner West. We often photograph parents and families who came from overseas and they love to get the Sydney Harbour Bridge or the Opera House in the background. After all it is a beautiful location.
