Branding, Website and Studio Refresh

This year has seen some big changes at my photo studio and the way I approach my work. As I am now non stop with corporate photography Monday to Friday I have restricted my weekend work and ceased wedding shoots altogether. It’s exactly where I aimed to be so I’m delighted and have celebrated with an updated logo to reflect my focus on Commercial Photography. This all celebrates 7 years in business which feels fantastic!

London based Studio hb who had designed my original branding were briefed to update the typeface to something very ‘me’. A new fresher tone of green has replaced the old and we have ridded of the black and dark greys and switched to a fresher cleaner white. The new font Bella Regular has a similar friendly, approachable and creative feel to the last, but with a new simplistic SD and circular icon. I love its newness and to me it represents progression and celebration that I am still here 7 years on! Hurray! The new logo is now stripped though my website, my marketing materials and up on my studio walls so have a gander and see what you think…

As well as my branding refresh I have refitted my beloved studio with a built in desk space beautifully designed and fitted by A. Lister Carpentry and Joinery, a local lady who knows her stuff when it comes to bespoke office creations in uneven underground whitewashed caves!

Clients often visiting my studio at Clavering House for portrait headshots, comment on how my photo studio looks like a house in Santorini, the bar in an early Star Wars film or an igloo. Whilst young visitors here for family portraits often ask ‘do you live here?’ as it is so cosy and homely. Thankfully there is time after work to go to my real home!

The studio space accommodates website product photography, headshot staff profiles, fashion and family celebrations whether Graduations, Wedding Anniversaries or Bumps and Babies now with even greater ease and I have space for another staff member too! I’ll be updating you on this fab addition soon.

My website has also had a revamp (yes I was VERY busy this June & July!) and has a whole new set of professional/corporate portraiture galleries, featuring Studio Headshots, Staff at Work, Meet the Team and on location portrait photography. I also have afab selection of performer profiles and model portfolio images. Check it out on http://www.sarahdeanephotography.co.uk/professional-portraiture/ 

So here are the before and after- from store cupboard in 2015 to a glorious space in its 2018 newness. I am loving it!

Children’s Day Holiday in Japan, Baby Portraits

Asami, Laion and Paul came into the studio early May for their son to be photographed on Childrens day. They brought with them the most amazing props in the form of ten foot fish and traditional clothes. These giant printed wind socks gave these shots a particularly graphic edge… see what you think!

Barry Ersoz, Corporate Portraiture for ND Creative

Well Barry Ersoz of Power 4 Pubs was a super chap to photograph, jolly and a good sport. Barry had a passion for photography so we chatted f-stops and techniques as I shot. Many MD’s would rather be running the business than posing for photos but good profile images always make for a friendly approachable business.

It was ND Creative that commissioned these professional yet relaxed contemporary photography for one of their spreads in the S & N Pub company quarterly ‘Pub Life’. For more information on their please work visit http://www.ndcreative.com/commercial portraits newcastle upon tyne
