Hello,

Welcome to my website, so good to have you here. If you came from “Map Your Brand” you are in the right place, I decided that one “meet Kirsten” page was enough!

Every good website needs an introduction to the business owner and as the principle photographer it is really important to me that we connect.

I have plenty of Testimonials over here that will explain why that is so important……..and you can look through recent work, above, to see showcases of some of the sessions that have been completed.

I’m passionate about my job as a Corporate, Commercial and Portrait Photographer, I love business and people, so helping business owners showcase their awesome ideas, products and services through imagery is the perfect job for me. I am devoted to working with business owners to create a library of images that showcase thier brand and its personality.

Each client that books a Brand photoshoot with me starts with a 2 hour “Map Your Brand – Let’s Talk Images” consultation. A “Let’s Talk Images” consultation is for those who are clear about what their business offers, who their clients are, the direction they want to take their business in. During the consultation we use this information to create a shoot list that includes information such as what props are needed, the locations and perhaps the people who you are going to use as models.

I am based in Castle Hill, Sydney, but work all over Sydney, including the Blue Mountains.

The technical stuff you need to know,

– I have a Diploma in Photo Imagining,

– I am currently studying, Bachelor of Counselling 2nd Year

– I have been running my Photography business since 2009, and have photographed many business owners across a huge range of industries.

– I developed and own Map Your Brand

Looking forward to getting to know you

MY STORY

I have been a self employed Photographer for almost a decade now, when I started on this journey I had no idea where it would take me. Yet here I am. Still standing and still loving life! 

I love working with business owners helping them capture their essence, and spirit. I love that I can do this with a camera, but if you speak to any of my clients they will tell you that its more than a camera that captures them. It is the environment I provide that creates a safe space for them to express who they are, they forget the camera is even in the room with us. Its not the camera that is the key ingredient, it is the relationship formed. The fact all my clients are surprised by how much fun a shoot is backs this up. 

Last year (2017) I decided to study counselling, I may be a little more than interested in this safe space and relationship building than your average photographer. So while most of my week is spent behind a camera, networking or Mapping a Brand, I keep Tuesday's and Wednesday's as study days. 

FAVORITE THINGS

My Family and Friends of course......... 

Then I'd add quiet conversations with my amazing partner on our back deck watching the local wildlife. 

Hearing the sound of laughter, especially from my children. 

I enjoy quiet time and meditate often. 

I enjoy my coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evenings. 

I'm not really attached to material things, I HATE shopping but love a long lunch with great company. 

FAVORITE PLACES

I have to say I do love being by the ocean, not when its hot though. My favourite time is late afternoon, or in winter. 

I have travelled a little and my favourite place would be Italy. I hope to travel so much more and have a long list of must visit places. 

For now though, when I am not working or at uni, I love hiding out at home with my family. Just being.
