CASE STUDY

See examples of my photography work, presented as case studies to introduce you to my clients and demonstrate the results I’ve achieved.

Fab Dab Do

  • Images for a website redesign
  • Product photography to launch business on Not On The High Street shop
  • Videography to showcase the product in use

Scale up – four two-hour shoots over the course of a year

I delivered a high-quality set of lifestyle images and short videos, creating a consistent and professional look across the brand. As part of their package, Fab Dab Do had a photoshoot every quarter, allowing them to successfully complete their new website, launch their business on Not On The High Street, and create ongoing social media campaigns.

Owner – Fab Dab Do

My product range is growing and working with Kate means that the photography and my online shop front won’t lag behind. It’s extremely reassuring to know that we have Kate working with us so that every quarter the business is planning ahead and keeping a fresh vibrant look. It’s important to us to stand out and display confidence in our images so that our customers know we care about their shopping experience. Kate’s eye for detail is excellent and working with her is a dream.

Make Me Local

  • Imagery and videos for a new website

Starter – one-hour shoot

I captured individual headshots, group photographs and images showing the team at work. I also shot flat lays for social media campaigns, which have encouraged better engagement. The package included short videos, one of which is now on the website homepage to introduce the team and highlight their professional, collaborative approach.

We have used Kate in a number of instances in the last 2 years at Vorwerk UK and Irelands. She is super creative and on the ball, always coming up with new ways to photograph everything from our huge events, PR appearances and even our products. Kate is also very flexible and is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure we get the shot we need on time. We simply cannot wait to work together on future projects!

Havet Restaurant

  • Images to promote new dishes and cocktails
  • Photography for upcoming restaurant promotions
  • Images showcasing products and services for new business initiatives

Growth. I’ve conducted several photoshoots with Havet Restaurant and they call on me whenever they need new images.

I captured photographs of the restaurant to showcase its buzzing atmosphere, as well as honing in on specific dishes and details. I also captured ‘behind the scenes’ images, helping to give the brand personality and show the passion of their staff members – these have worked brilliantly on social media. My images are used on Havet’s website, in promotions, and across all social media channels, increasing engagement for the restaurant.

Serhan – Havet Restaurants

Cannot recommend Kate and her work enough! With her clear and precise planning we managed to obtain the shots needed for our three restaurants that brings our visuals and content for our social media and website to the forefront of the game. Kate is a pleasure to partner with, and most importantly, extremely personable. When on site, she is not imposing on operations, but manages to still get the best shots capturing personality and atmosphere. Whether it be static images of our food, or images of our staff and customers enjoying themselves, each image taken captures the moment perfectly. I cannot recommend Kate enough.

Stonehage Fleming

  • Headshots and portraits
  • Consistent online imagery
  • Lifestyle photography of employees
  • Images for press and PR

Bespoke – price based on the number of staff requiring headshots

As an international wealth management company, it was important all images were consistent and professional. I photographed up to 50 people at every shoot, giving members of staff 10-minute sessions each. They could then choose their favourite portrait, and have more photographs taken if needed – this is such a personal thing, and my approach ensured all individuals were happy. I then retouched images where needed, and sent them over with clear labelling for ease of use. Headshots were used on the company website and shared with individuals for their LinkedIn profiles.

Marketing & Events Manager – Stonehage Fleming

Kate is wonderfully talented and a fantastic photographer. She’s friendly, professional and immensely passionate about her work. Kate makes you feel at ease when taking the shots and her editing skills are finely tuned. Her creative style shines through in both her personality and her photography!
