Portrait Session photo shoot with musician, public speaker and podcaster Katie Elliott
Recently it was my great pleasure to photograph Katie Elliott for some new press shots… I know Katie as a talented multi-instrumentalist, at the moment she’s perhaps most well known for her piano playing (here’s a Spotify link to her beautiful album of piano music ‘Walking The Edge’ also available on Amazon), but she’s also a podcaster and public speaker who’s picking up a lot of attention.
Katie’s company Little Challenges is ‘a place to find ideas, tools and inspiration to make being human a little bit easier’. You can find out information there about her podcasts and also forthcoming book.
Katie asked me if I’d like to do a portrait session… the brief was to take a set of images which would cover all of her various needs. We started with the headphones image above for her podcast.
It was very easy working with Katie and I really wanted to put across how friendly and warm she is. Next we tried some slightly more corporate shots with a laptop in view.
Finally we needed a straight headshot which would be multi-purpose, the garden seemed a good breezy environment for this and brought a pleasing brightness to the images.
I’m pleased to see that Katie has already started using the images in various places – her Linkedin profile, her website as well public speaking events listings and more, it’s a great thing to see pictures we’ve created out there. Hope to work with you again in the future, Katie!
If you like the look of these images and would like to arrange a portrait session for yourself then please do get in touch and we can plan a shoot entirely around your needs.
