Brands and businesses need to engage with and communicate their services, products, ideas and identity to their customers.
I help create the photographic and motion imagery that marketing teams and agencies need to bring their advertising campaigns to life.
THE SKILLS AND SERVICES
No two photographic productions are alike, which is why I believe in a scalable model. This creates the flexibly needed to achieve productions of any size within a budget that will still get across the line. If it's simply a head and shoulder shot or an extravagant advertising campaign, I have the experience and leading industry connections to materialize your ideas.
I have been creating photographic and video content for various brands and businesses for over 15 years. My accumulated skills, experience and genuine curiosity about people has led me to specialise in portrait photography. I believe that bringing out the best in talent is key to creating imagery that holds a resonant quality that helps connect people with brands.
Post-production is an art form within itself and I can handle extensive photographic retouching, motion editing as well as colour grading. My editing philosophy is to ride the threshold between using editing capabilities to polish and amplify imagery, whilst keeping the image authentic and retaining its connective quality. I believe that the imagery needs to speak to its viewer in order for any associated marketing message to resonate.
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH THINGS OTHER THAN PEOPLE?
Although I specialise as a portrait photographer, I have a wealth of skills across various industries and a large portion of my work doesn't even make it on this website. At any point, I can be photographing a product range to a gallery event. I was even commissioned once to photograph a cow. If you have an upcoming project, be sure that I can most likely handle it.
HOW MUCH DO YOU COST?
The way I operate is to custom build a quote based on the required production and my client's budget. I like to be upfront and ask for a ballpark number to begin with. The reasoning being is this gives me a gauge of what’s achievable and it also eliminates time wasted with the bouncing of quotes back and forth. Hit me up, as I'd love to hear what projects you have in mind.
WILL YOU SIGN OVER YOUR IMAGE COPYRIGHTS?
The short answer is I don't sign over image copyrights in order to protect the longevity of my business. In almost all situations I have found that a copyright buyout is an unnecessarily expensive option for my clients. However, I can offer an alternative 'All-Usage' license for an additional fee. The main difference being this license does not allow the licensee to sell or pass the images on to a third party.
We just did a studio shoot with Wren of our portfolio pieces and the results were magic! We did it across 3 days and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Wren on this, full of knowledge, super patient and a great understanding of what we wanted to achieve. Look forward to shooting the next set.
We have worked with Wren on a few jobs, most recently with OfficeMax and Bethel Funerals. He has consistently translated the creative concept into a powerful visual asset. He has worked well with our clients, adds value creatively and proven to be flexible to achieve the best outcome.
Wren has a great eye and is a pleasure to work with. With strong skills in both moving image and stills, he is quick thinking on his feet and able to adapt quickly to make the most of a photo-shoot opportunity. I would highly recommend him.
