“BSM is hands down the best online course I have ever purchased. While other courses left me thinking, “Did I just get duped?”, Sandra’s course left me thinking, “Did I just win the lottery?! The knowledge I gained from BSM has changed the way I approach my work. Before taking BSM, I had been continually burned by creative courses that over-promised and under-delivered, courses that were filled with fluff content, and courses that raved about their private Facebook groups only to be greeted by tumbleweeds and crickets. I was lost creatively, but upon entering BSM, I was blown away by how content rich it was! I personally counted (nerd alert!), and there are 8 hours and 35 seconds of video content within BSM! In movie math, Sandra made us a trilogy of visual branding and styling content! Bring Sandra alongside your business by investing in BSM. You can’t afford not to! I have a year of clients now from three images!”
When I first started my business, I found myself mostly imitating what others were doing so all I had were a mix bag of images that did nothing for my brand. It was difficult enough for me to put my work out on instagram, it was even harder to get noticed. I learned so much from Sandra! I saw an 80% increase in enquiries from brides whose style is close to mine, as well as an increase in following in just a few months. I also booked out my first calligraphy workshop and now have a regular on site calligraphing job with 2 major luxury brands, one of which was on my dream client list when I first started my business!”
“BSM is one of the best investments I made for my business this year. Though it's meant for branding photoshoot, Sandra shares wisdom that goes beyond that. She has worked and juggled several different job roles, and the knowledge that she has gained from all these experiences is invaluable. And she has poured all of that into this excellent course. Sandra does not just teach the "Hows" of photoshoots but the "Whys." All of the knowledge has helped guide me to tell compelling stories through my imagery. It gave me clarity, direction, and, most importantly, confidence. I feel more settled and have a more clear direction. I have observed and felt growth. The photoshoots I have done using all this knowledge has brought me - several new high-paying clients, unique collaborations, and two major magazine publications. Your photos can make or break your brand, so mastering the art of telling a good story through them is essential to charge your worth."
“Shortly before BSM I was looking to pivot in my business from wedding stationery to branding. I knew that I needed to upgrade my visuals to speak to an audience that needed branding services. I decided to enrol in BSM because I was ready to shift my brand and also was interested in applying a creative director role to my design services. This course is phenomenal for anyone looking to polish their brand or understand how creative direction ties into branding. As a brand designer, I was able to use the material to elevate my portfolio in order to attract the type of clients that I really wanted to work with. Since taking the course, I have incorporated creative direction into my services which allows me to charge more. Additionally, since upgrading my portfolio I have landed my highest paying client! I have the confidence and courage to apply my skillset to brands that are looking for more than just a logo, but a story and true visual identity!”
... shoot over a proposal, website link, or welcome mag and know that ideal client might as well be flipping through a glossy-matte Kinfolk magazine, because your photos are THAT good?
... finally book those dream clients you've been dreaming of, the RIGHT clients, because you're finally speaking to them with your brand?
... ditch the Instagram Tetris game every time you're trying to figure out what to post next in your feed that doesn't totally clash—and instead, sucks them in FAR beyond a simple double-tap?
... add an extra digit or zero to your product or service price, confident that no one's batting an eye at it, because (go on, clink your Moet & Chandon) your work finally looks the part of the fees you'd like to charge?
... pivot to that new area of work you love and KNOW you're amazing at, because you now have the visual proof to back it up?
... finally not want to go hide in a corner when people ask you for your biz details because you're no longer embarrassed about your brand's aesthetic?

BSM is hands down one of the best investments I’ve made since starting my business. In just 3 months of implementing Sandra’s blueprint, I created my first shoot and NAILED IT - it’s being featured on one of my favourite fine art wedding blogs! Now whenever I’m thinking about creating images, I refer back to the visual strategy principles I learnt from Sandra and always pull out her templates - INVALUABLE! Everything that I’ve learnt from Sandra has now become second nature and it’s amazing!
Before I took BSM I was taking photos of my ceramics to put on Instagram with the hopes of someone stumbling across them and buying it. I had no clue of how I could properly launch my online shop or website. Through BSM, I've been able to hone in on my brand aesthetic, voice and values and it has made all the difference. Sandra has shown me the power of visuals in communicating with other brands and businesses because as soon as I implemented some of her methods of being more intentional with my imagery, I finally stopped getting ghosted by brands and actually started getting noticed! I love how she puts in the effort to provide a warm, friendly and encouraging environment on the BSM Facebook group so that we get the chance to be part of a great community, which has been SO helpful in my journey so far.
BSM helped me create a game plan for my branding shoot that took inspiration from my creative why and applied it in a tangible way. The results blew me away and left me hungry for more! I have a completely fresh perspective on styling. I now know what elements need to be present in order to create cohesive and consistent brand imagery. I am also able pull elements from my client’s stories and weave them into my custom designs and collaborations. There are so many ways to apply inspiration without being completely literal. This shift in perspective couldn’t have occurred without the content in BSM and Sandra’s wise, calming presence!
I signed up for BSM prior to the launch of my fine jewellery brand, Jureve and all of Sandra’s teachings on designing shoots, concepting moodboards, the practical aspects of working with a photographer and not focusing on the final product were priceless!
BSM is one of the best decisions I could have made for the business! It not only really helped to elevate the brand but the BSM community that Sandra built has been invaluable. I have met so many other like-minded creatives who we have not only partnered up with on projects but also continue to support and cheer each other on! All of this would not have been possible without Sandra and BSM. I cannot recommend Sandra and BSM enough!
BSM couldn't have come at a better time for me. As a photographer I've created, styled, and directed many shoots, but as I'm pivoting into a new industry I needed something to ground me and give me direction for how to communicate that shift visually. Sandra has helped me understand in a more direct way how to craft with intention from the beginning, before I even pick up my camera! Sandra has a gift for getting right to the heart of what a brand or client needs to communicate and to whom they are communicating that message to. If that were all she did she would be worth the investment, but that's not all! If you are in the business of creating visual content... if you are a creative in the business of creating, BSM is the perfect tool to help you elevate your imagery so you can attract your ideal client and communicate your worth effectively!
I had taken a few courses and was unsure if BSM was the right fit for me, but after taking the course, chatting to Sandra and taking the steps necessary to drive my business forward I built a brand that I’m proud of, that speaks the message I want to convey and has imagery to match. Some of the tips I got were hard to follow and at times I really fought the advice, but after a good kick in the butt by myself and the amazing community you get to surround yourself with in BSM, I realised they were necessary to drive my brand forward. Since the course I have a beautiful website with stunning brand imagery, a lot of happy clients and an article in the paper. I could not have done it without Sandra's course!
As a brand photographer, I was excited to learn from someone who has years of experience pulling together and executing these types of photoshoots. Sandra's course gave me confidence in the strategic process I implement for my clients and helped me clarify and refine the visuals for my own brand. I love Sandra's approach to pulling inspiration for a photoshoot by not pulling images you want to replicate and I'll definitely be incorporating this into future shoots. The course was thorough, detailed, and inspiring. Sandra's personalised feedback was the cherry on top of an already great experience!
My life has totally changed now that I have these amazing brand images seen through Sandra’s eyes. I used to feel bad about charging for my work and seriously thought no-one would want to pay the kind of prices that I wanted to charge because I had nothing to show for it. But working with Sandra has been a total game changer. I feel like I became professional overnight! Not only have I gone up a level and elevated my brand.
From the moment that I discovered Sandra Chau’s thoughtful, nuanced, and beautifully-presented online content, I was thoroughly enchanted with her calm, warm character and insightful narratives. BSM provides you the opportunity to infuse your brand with your heart’s philosophies, and then gently walks you through the comprehensive process of how to meaningfully manifest those values visually. I am so, so grateful for the wisdom and emotional fulfilment that I obtained from her well-crafted online lessons and fellow students whom I connected with and were inspired by.
When I first started my business, I didn’t have a huge portfolio and I knew people wouldn’t take me seriously unless I had good images that really told the story of my brand. Sandra was able to use her personal brand of magic by taking my raw ideas and creating imagery that showed my audience that I was legit and that my business was legit. I’ve already made back my 4 figure investment in my images (and then some!).
