creative brand photographer
in GLASGOW, scotland
Hi, I'm Rhiannon: professional photographer and proud small business owner. I'm also mum to a three year old and a rescue dog, wife to Scottish guy, an avid adventurer and a total night owl.
My formal education is in journalism & communications, an industry I worked in for almost a decade before deciding to pursue photography full time. This experience has proven to be a great advantage to me (and something that really sets me apart from other brand photographers) as I have a strong understanding of visual branding needs not only from a photography perspective, but a communications one as well. Bonus!
I moved to Scotland from Winnipeg, Canada in 2015 and I managed to build up my own full time business here in Glasgow, from scratch, in less than two years- despite being on a new continent with no network or reputation. I firmly believe that if I can do it, you can too, and I'm excited to share my experience to help you grow your own business and brand. Learn more about how I gave up my 9-5 career to start a new business here.
WHAT I DO
Small creative businesses and their owners have always inspired me. Not a lot of people can say they followed their dream and carved their own path in life; it takes courage and determination and a heck of a lot of believing in yourself- not a lot of people have it in them. But you do.
You are the inspiration behind Small Fish Photo Co and the reason I do what I do. I love to work with people who think outside the box and see the value in re-inventing the wheel. People who believe wholeheartedly in what they're doing and want to challenge and improve the status quo in their industry. I am proud to be a small business owner, and I'm proud to say I work with small businesses- especially here in Scotland.
As a small business owner you are your brand, and this is your greatest strength- there is only one you. It can be difficult though, to determine exactly what it is that makes you and your brand unique- but lucky for you, this is my specialty. Let's work together to pinpoint your unique selling point, and how to best translate it into visual content that makes your brand stronger and your business stand out online.
I can provide you with a thorough, objective audit of your current visual content, identifying what's working for your brand and what isn't
I can create modern and authentic brand photos for your business, working with you every step of the way to ensure that your images help strengthen your brand and the message you want to get across to your audience
HOW I DO IT
If you're looking for a photographer who will rock up on the day of your shoot, having barely spoken to you and knowing nothing about your business I'm not the brand photographer for you. If you're looking for a teacher or a content auditor who uses a standard template for every business- you're also in the wrong place.
I don't JUST take photos or JUST tell you what to do with your visual content. In fact, the stuff I do with my camera is only a very small part of my job. Getting to know your business is a huge part of what I do- if I don't understand your brand personality, values, and ideal client how can I provide you with visual content that will help to grow your business?
Brand photography Is a collaborative process, wherein we work closely together to create images that strengthen your brand and really show off what it is that sets you apart. My first step in working with any new client is to do thorough research about your brand, before spending time together with you to outline exactly what you hope to achieve with your photos and working together to create a detailed plan for your shoot.
When it comes to teaching photography, auditing visual content and creating visual content strategies, my approach is very much the same: I start with thorough research, I speak to you about your business goals in detail and only then do I get to work on the actual teaching, auditing and strategizing.
LET'S DO THIS
If you're still with me, it sounds like we might be the right fit (yay!) If you're ready to improve your visual content, strengthen your brand and grow your business I would love to hear more about what you do.
