“OMG, I LOVE following this brand—ignore their Instagram feed … okay, and their website photos … oh, and those headshots are kinda not great … but besides all that, I think they’re PERFECT for you!”

^^^ Said *probably* no successful word-of-mouth referral ever. ^^^

Because clients/customers always want to get an insight about what they're investing in. And right now? Your visual direction is a little … well, let’s just say it went on that European inspo trip and got lost between the lavender fields and Barcelona coast.

You were told that magical brand shoot would fix everything. But you never really learned how to call the shoots on the overall visual strategy of your brand.

And now you’re itching to increase your prices (you’re DEFINITELY worth it), but one glance at your visual brand and you know your discerning dream won’t exactly stop dead in her tracks. 

Plus, let’s face it: you’ve already run through the images from your last brand shoot (you know, the magical one). And you shouldn't feel like you have to replace images from your brand every year. Or schedule a new shoot every 6 months because you're out of images.

So here you are, picking an image to share on Insta like photo gallery roulette—

Spin, scroll, click, sigh. I guess that’ll do. *post*

(I mean, how else do you decide between 27 photos of ONE SINGLE FRIGGIN' BOUQUET?)


Let's be honest: it's a visually-driven world, hun.

And you can have the best product, be the most kick-ass service provider, have bomb website copy, AND the most heart-felt captions ...

… but if your imagery isn't making them stop their scroll and stay put—they'll never even see you.

Yet 90% of information is communicated VISUALLY.

And in 2020 (and beyond!), your image-driven buyers are creeping on your photos—there’s no doubt.

But listen, no amount of stock photo subscription, hodge-podge collection from 13 different shoots, or all-over-the-place portfolio is gonna sugarcoat the truth: feeling insecure about your brand’s aesthetic kinda sucks.

But you know what’s worse?

Clicking around on Instagram and spying some industry newbie (okay fine, competitor) absolutely SLAYING it with her brand’s thoughtful, cohesive colour palette and suite of droolworthy images. Maybe you have the experience … but yup, she’s got the styled, scroll-stopping look—there’s no denying it.

And you want so BADLY to tick up your price point just a bit … but it feels a little wrong—


How do you break from the never-ending photo shoot hangover—constantly feeling like you missed a shot or could’ve done something better, you ask? 

By becoming your brand’s own creative director, that’s how.

(A totally learnable skill)

Hey there! I’m Sandra Chau, founder of The Branding Shoot Method and creative director.

I create high-level imagery for businesses so they can tell their brand story in a strategic way that leads to huge profits.

And shhh—here’s a secret: Styling isn't one of those things you just have—or don't. 

Back in my days as a lawyer, I used to think styling couldn't be taught. I was a far-cry from what you're seeing now. No matter how much I spent on props or used those "golden light" hours, things looked ... awkward. 

So I studied. I studied some more. I learned patterns. I practiced constantly.

And I figured it out. I learned to style. I devised a strategy. And if …

... you're starting to add brand shoots to your list of services,

… or you’re shelling out big bucks for a brand shoot—but don’t know how do you get the "look" you want out of your head, and into to the photographer's head,

… or if you just don’t think it’s practical to hire a stylist every time you need images for your feed (spoiler: it isn’t),

Then stick around, friend. Because that’s exactly what I’m here for.



Before I go further, let me tell you a bit about myself...

Now before we dig into strategy, there’s something you need to understand about creating brand imagery that convert . . .

Would YOU keep buying from (or even following!) a brand if they kept posting the same images over and over again?

Probably not. 

Which is why you’ve GOT to spend time learning how the job’s done.

I know—styling your own work may give you heart palpitations. Even if you're thinking "I'm NO creative director, Sandra,” I'll show you how you CAN do this. You CAN translate your story and vision into a shoot for yourself or your clients.

(Oh, and if you do it well, In a few years time, you'll still be able to use images you take. Yup, I said it. I mean, can you imagine what that would be like, to have your visual branding strategy dialed in that well?)

Like I said, styling IS a learnable skill. Visual strategy IS a learnable skill.

It just takes practice.



Your audience doesn't just want to see the final product.

They want the process.

They want to see your hands dirty.

They want to see behind-the-scenes.

They want you.

And nailing your brand images is how you show them that.





The Branding Shoot Method
 by Sandra Chau

Introducing:

That's why I created an artful, uncomplicated method for creatives who are ready to nail a curated, consistent brand image that commands their (dream) price point. 


The Branding Shoot Method is an A-to-Z blueprint to learn the ropes of creating high-quality, unique and compelling imagery that drives profits—all in a 5 module, self-paced course, complete with styling video demonstrations, templates and worksheets.

This is my results-oriented system that's been put to the test by dozens of creatives worldwide, to help you nail that thoughtful, cohesive aesthetic blueprint for your business.

I’m handing over the step-by-step systems and strategies I used to help them get there… to you... EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER.

... and you even get a 1:1 call when you reach your branding shoot milestone!



JOIN NOW

Let's be honest: it's not practical to hire a stylist every time you need images for your feed.

That's why inside The Branding Shoot Method, you'll get the very path I take my clients on—the path that takes them from crickets to getting enquiries within weeks of putting their learnings into action AND then BOOKING their IDEAL clients within months.

And this is even before they’ve put their branding images out into the world!

It doesn't matter how beautiful your product is—

If your styling isn't good, if you don't have a visual strategy, you're doing a disservice to your hard-earned brand.


(And I’m not about that life.)

So let’s join hands and elevate your brand so you can charge what you’re WORTH with killer visuals.

Here’s what you get inside The Branding Shoot Method:

This is where you'll anchor your brand's visuals to the core of your business, so REAL transformation can get started.

Like that You've Got Mail scene when Meg Ryan's character leaves a rose out to signal to her blind date, we want your brand to signal to your ideal clients to stop the scroll: they've found you. 

You will:




Chapter 1: Clarify
Your Brand

This is the core of The Branding Shoot Method edge—because elevating your artistic eye is what not having to shell out for a stylist comes down to ... THIS is how you'll inevitably curate to-die-for imagery.

I'm handing over a paint-by-number plan to build a powerful image library, so you can execute the system every time you need to beef up that image library Dropbox folder you have.

You will:



Chapter 2: Styling 101

Learn the keys to visual composition, and why most creatives are stuck having heart palpitations thinking about styling (a MAJOR mind-block I'll teach you how to tackle).

Build on your Chapter 1 insights and use a strong focal point. You'll learn how to communicate your offer, product, or service with photos (or hey, just your family's Saturday morning bread-making ritual you want to share with your followers).

Learn how to make decisions with composition—whether your brand is FULL of colour, or if neutrals are more your thing, I'll give you tons of examples.

What you need inside your kick-ass styling kits—my 7 Secrets to the Perfect Kit ... including how to get the most bang for your buck as you curate your kit, so you can work that limited budget. Ceramics, flatware, glassware, linens, textures, books—I'm spilling. 

Get access to my secret sauce - the 'negative space' (learn why you need it and how to get it), and what that could look like for you and your brand's images.

Learn the 7 Key Ingredients to a Beautiful Still Life–the "why doesn't it look like" question? It's super common. You'll discover how to nail composing your flat lays and beyond in this lesson.



Get a complete, 360 overview of how to unlock your brand's voice and aesthetic, so you can get crystal clear on what you want to work on inside The Branding Shoot Method.

Remember the last time you thought "if only I had an image to illustrate ____ in my business." What was it, like, last week?

Here's a secret: NO one will know all the photo needs in your business better than you. 99% of the time, YOU are the creative director of your brand.

That's why in this module, we're getting granular: you're in control of telling your story, and we'll talk about how you can make a statement for your brand—whether you're shooting your work or someone else is.

Discover the Creative Director Job Description—sure, it's what I do every day, but unless you're hiring a creative director every time you work on the visual marketing for your business, this is YOUR job, my friend. You'll see what you need to expect to do in this role in your business.

Dive deeper into the process of designing a concept for a branding shoot, so you can show up as the storyteller and direct the kinds of images you'll be getting back post-shoot.

Learn how to build a strategic mood board for YOUR brand (no-one else's!) —from Pinterest (and yes, I'll tell you exactly the accounts I like to follow and pin), to handing over 2 recent client mood boards, you'll be able to nix those "what if they don't get the shot" jitters that come up before a shoot.

Learn the 3 Steps of Getting a Creative Team Together—do NOT schedule another brand photo shoot before watching this lesson. You're only as good as the people you surround yourself with, and I'll give you my proven model to think through vendor collaborations. That "I should have thought to get a florist/stylist/table/bath for my dog" thought is the WORST, so let's just make sure it never happens again, okay?

Get my Collaboration Ask Email Template, yours for the taking. This is how I've built lasting relationships (and gotten more bang for my buck) with partners on a branding shoot, and I'm handing it over so you can add it to your arsenal.

Learn how to create a day-of schedule, so you can clearly communicate hour-by-hour expectations for the day (and make sure the flowers don't clash with your lipstick, and that the flowers don't droop 3 hours into the day). Plus, I'll hand over My Day-Of-Shoot Runsheet Template for you to use.

See 3 Steps for Success with Your Photographer, too. They're the professional, and we need to respect that. But like you've learned in Chapters 1-2, getting on the same page is crucial to getting the photos you wanted .. here's how to do it.



Forget ever feeling like a photo shoot was a wasted investment.

This is the exact process I've taken clients through time after time. With this ultimate guide to a branding shoot, you'll think like a creative director.

The average student can create hundreds of brand images from ONE shoot. 

And that's exactly what you'll do after this module.

Discover what is a branding shoot REALLY MEANSbecause no, we're not going to make a stack of those random, out-of-context eye roll images Instagram influencer hashtags are made of. No matter what your niche in the creative industry, you'll get prepped for a high-quality, high-touch shoot that commands your prices.

Learn what could a brand shoot look like for you or your clients? You'll see inside Dissecting a Brand Shoot, walking through case study from multiple clients of mine ... plus a shoot for my own brand! Amplify your message, show off your craft, and get ready to up your prices—you'll look the part after this walk-through.

Learn how to set up a shoot reflecting the work you want to do ... even when you haven't booked that type of work yet. If there's a service, product, or target audience you're dreaming about, you'll learn how to fake-it-til-you-make it in your visual imagery, so when you're ready to launch, you can illustrate it with visuals.

Get not one, but TWO Sample Brand Shoot Shot Lists from real-life clients, so you prep to get the most value out of your shoot, adding a library of hundreds of images to your business—and measurable results to your bottom line.

Discover the 5 Things to Consider on Shoot Day so you can predict your day (and any wrinkled ribbons) to cultivate a sense of control the day that may just elevate everything for your business.



This is truly the difference between how a cream-of-the-crop creative entrepreneur and an amateur creative brand their business. 

If you struggle with inconsistency, constantly feeling like your marketing images are a hodge-podge telling an unconnected story and definitely not helping you move up a pricing bracket, then this one's for you. 

I've had photographers with a portfolio full of all-over-the-place work use this module to transform their visual strategy into an integrated feed that gets them booked out ..

... and I've also had women pull themselves out of the current client workload, propelling themselves into their dream job: suddenly booking the work they've been dying to get paid to do for years.

Chapter 5: Nailing Your Ongoing Visual Branding Strategy

Learn my secret to Selecting the Perfect Images, because so many entrepreneurs (despite their hard-wrought intentions) FAIL to share the images their target audience needs to see.

Behind-the-scenes as I select photos from a client gallery to use in marketing materials that keep dream inquiries coming in.

You'll learn how to set up your refreshed Instagram feed, building on the powerful images that you've created to transform your grid (even when you're stressed about how to work in new images).

How to defend yourself from undisciplined posting—you need to know when NOT to post sometimes, so that the image you're dying to post shines in its proper place. I promise this makes a difference, and I'll show you how that works.

“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!”

BSM SUCCESS STORIES:

“After completing BSM, I created and released three branded images on my Instagram feed, I booked a client at my highest package! That means just three images paid for my BSM investment—twice! It was the best return on investment! I have clients now!”

BSM SUCCESS STORIES:

“Before BSM, I didn't have any specific style or aesthetic and I was never satisfied with how my pictures looked. After BSM, my images finally started looking how I wanted them to be and they got me noticed by luxury brands, photographers, stylists and other creatives in the biz! So many doors have opened to me because of BSM!”

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 SUCCESS STORIES:

“If you are an entrepreneur looking to excel in your brand imagery, this is THE course for you. Start here."

“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."

“BSM is phenomenal. 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 upgrading my portfolio I have landed my highest paying client ever!”

“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!”

What's an elevated, more high-end brand worth to you, my beautiful friend?

... 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?



Tell me, what would it mean if you could …

... or a full-on brand shoot you've booked, 

It costs time, money, or both.

And that brand shoot you’re dreaming about?

A good photographer (if you aren't one): $2k+
Florals: $500+
Hair/makeup (or even just a Sephora run): $250+
Studio/venue hire: $600+
Props/rentals: $100-1K+

Yikes. Getting set for a quality brand shoot that supplies you with hundreds of images can run you upwards of $5,000 when it's all said and done.

Ay yi yi, sticker shock.

Well, imagine spending all that—and then getting back photos that don't even FIT the narrative you had in mind.

(The WORST, right?)

If it hasn't happened yet, there's a super-high chance it will soon.

You can forget about the photo session FOMO hangover feels ...

You know—the ones that strike right about the time your head hits the pillow and you think "SHOOT, I forget to get this shot ... or that shot ... and oh yeah, I could have staged this or that for my upcoming [workshop/Black Friday sale promo/giveaway/insert-marketing-need-here] ... "

Instead, knowing that you've got to-die-for photos on the way?

Timeless scroll-stoppers that you can use in 2020 ... 2021 ... 2022 ... ?

(Seriously—I make sure my clients can use our visual strategy & photos for years)

Ohhh, pal. You deserve this (and that silk camisole loungewear look you just pinned, but that's another story).

Because investing in the visual direction of brand? It costs. Whether it's those hours you're clicking through some stock photo website at 11:40 p.m. …



Don't go through one more day without a
visual brand strategy blueprint.

You'd have folders after folders of curated images you could use for years to come—and an elevated brand that let you up that price point ... and keep doing what you love.

What if you learned how to call the shots with a creative director's honed eye? 

And that's priceless.

Now, I typically charge $5,000+ to work 1-on-1 with brands like Plann, Oliv Swim, SOL, and Mishku Studio, Emma Natter (to name a few) to craft imagery that tells their story. But I know it's not practical to hire a "me" every time you need photos for your brand.

That's why I've made The Branding Shoot Method ready for you to grab instantly for less than the price of that iPhone that's on your desk.

Say "yes" to The Branding Shoot Method, and let's pack your future with a lifetime of elevated high-converting brand image libraries.

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!

“Sandra' really makes sure to care for her students. I never felt that I was left to my own devices in any way because she was always there to provide guidance in her incredibly approachable and patient way."

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!

“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!”


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!

Hear from some of the biz women that have become great friends, and like-minded virtual wine dates. I've carefully curated a list of interviews for you, including:

- HALCYON HIVE, PINTEREST STRATEGIST: A how-to on starting a Pinterest strategy that fills your boards with images that drive traffic to your website with an interview with The Halcyon Hive, now that your images are culled and curated.

- EMMA NATTER, COACH: A simple launch strategy (i.e. no webinar tech involved) to let your audience know what's going on when you're ready to launch a workshop, a new collection, or a flash sale with business strategist, Emma Natter.

- MISHKU STUDIO, GRAPHIC DESIGNER: A crash course in how to create a strong brand with Mishku Studio

- D'ARCY BENINCOSA, MARKETING STRATEGIST: A strategy sesh with photographer, marketing ninja B, so you can quit playing it safe and get a dose of marketing insight from someone who knows your industry.

- KATIE O. SELVIDGE, PUBLISHER: A talk with Katie O. Selvidge, the woman behind Cottage Hill magazine, as she takes us through authenticity on Instagram and her refined outlook on the platform.

I had a BLAST recording these, and can't wait to ship them out to you!

Value: $2,500

PLUS, when you join, you'll fast-track your brand's image with these exclusive bonuses:

Supercharge your styling with a behind-the-scenes peek of TWO branding shoot case studies:

First, I'm taking you on an inspiration wall shoot I did for a calligrapher, from background selection to how I chose props that went with her colour palate, you'll see it all.

Then, I'll take you through how to style a corner of your office—bring out your tools, because you'll be showing it off after this video.

Designed to show you how I picked the hero for the image, know what to think about for surfaces, hear ideas of how to add texture, and learn what I do on a REAL shoot to play around with composition and mood, and more—you'll see me on the go in these videos.

You'll even see how you can take your followers along with "day in the life" videos of your creative process.

Plus, I'm spilling secrets on what I think about during a shoot to maximise the use—we need these to work for Instagram, online magazines, and more, so I'll tell you what you need to think about.

It's possible to get DOZENS of images in a single set up, and you'll be able to see how that works in these videos.

Value: $350



Because I want you to feel completely supported during your time in The Branding Shoot Method, on top of my 5-part formula, I'm giving you these on the house.

BONUS #2:

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!

“Sandra’s course is truly a must when starting a business! If you think you know what you have to do and all the steps you need to take you are greatly mistaken. This course was truly an eye opener for me and my business.”

“BSM gave me confidence in the strategic process I implement for my clients and helped me clarify and refine the visuals for my own brand”


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!

“I can finally charge what I’m worth instead of always under cutting myself to book clients! I have now increased my prices by 10% and I don’t feel bad about it!”


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.

“I highly recommend BSM to any entrepreneur wanting to develop and finesse their brand with heart and beauty, for stand-out results that will resonate with their audiences.”

MORE on sandra's magic....

“I have doubled my bookings and even doubled my prices since my branding shoot with Sandra and my calendar is booked out for the rest of 2019!! I feel confident that I can command those high prices because I am worth every penny I charge.”

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!).

FAQ's you may have

click here to read the faq's

Because you deserve to quit the guessing game of brand visuals:

Do I have lifetime access?

You have access to the course, including all future updates, for 12 months.

If I gave you life access, you probably wouldn't actually implement. And in order to get results, you gotta implement. 

12 months is plenty of time to design, create and execute your game changing branding shoot (one of many!). Going through the course won't take you more than a few hours a week, especially as I've given you everything you could possibly need. 

Once you've honed your brand, created that first photo shoot and devised your visual brand strategy, you won't have any further need for this course and can get on with other things in your business. 

And, you can actually absolutely complete the program in 12 weeks and many have, but we give you 12 months access so you can fully implement and integrate everything you learn.

Is this a course for photographers? What if I suck at photography?

You do NOT have to be a photographer to take this course. And I totally get it, because I suck at photography! And I can’t take a good photo to save my life BUT it doesn’t matter because I will teach you how you can get those awesome images without being a pro-photographer. I'll give you my proven model on how to work with creative vendors such as photographers so that you can get the photos you want. With my blueprint, you will learn how to get the "look" you want out of your head, and into to the photographer's head.

PLUS I’ll show you how you can create dozens of show-stopping images using just the camera on your phone so it won’t matter even if you don’t have a big photo shoot lined up with all the pros or that everyone is stuck at home right now. You'll be able to get started right away even at home!

I'm a photographer. Will this help me shoot better for my clients?

YES! I've had photographers use the blueprint from The Branding Shoot Method to transform their visual strategy into an integrated feed that gets them booked out. The great thing about the blueprint for photographers is that you can apply it to your own creative process to craft more intentional content for your brand and your clients, even before picking up your Camera! Just ask Sara Weir, who said that “Applying Sandra’s process to my own has given me new insights that directly affect the content I create for my brand and clients! The Branding Shoot Method’s process of intentionally crafting images to communicate value and aesthetic even helped me create images to pivot into a new industry!”


What if I'm TERRIBLE at the visual stuff?

Here’s a secret: Styling isn't one of those things you just have—or don't. Back in my days as a lawyer, I used to think styling couldn't be taught. I was a far-cry from what you're seeing now. No matter how much I spent on props or used those "golden light" hours, things looked ... awkward. So I studied. I studied some more. I learned patterns. I practiced constantly. And I figured it out. I learned to style. I learned to make my stuff look good… like really good. I learned to speak to my ideal clients visually. And if this middle aged ex-lawyer can do it, so can you and I’m going to be here with you every step of the way and teach you exactly how. 

How long will it take me to transform the aesthetic of my business?

I’m not going to sugarcoat it for you - building a beautiful, intentional and authentic brand takes time and is not an overnight thing. Don't expect to binge listen and have clients and customers rolling in in a week. It takes time to dig deep, implement, create, strategise and you will see amazing things happen AND it can happen in as little as a 2-3 months if you dedicate the time. So this is the PERFECT time to start working on this when you're faced with more time at home to work on your brand and business. In a short 3 months of following The Branding Shoot Method blueprint, Idyll Studio went from 80 followers to 500 genuine Instagram followers and booked THREE wedding clients, all of which were her ideal clients AND she had just started her business! And this is something you can do too even in the current climate.

Will this work for me?

The Branding Shoot Method is for creatives, freelancers, small business owners, established and aspiring entrepreneurs who are ready to nail a curated, consistent brand image that commands their (dream) price point. 

From floral design to paper goods, retail shop owners, graphic designers, photographers, videographers, craft fair makers, to virtual assistants — The Branding Shoot Method teaches you to be kick ass in your visual strategy.

If you’re currently in the throws of starting your business, or if you’re already a few years in, but still not able to book those dream clients or able to charge the prices you know you deserve to charge, The Branding Shoot Method will teach you the essentials to nail that thoughtful, cohesive aesthetic blueprint for your business.

It all comes down to this fork in the yellow-brick road. 

Alright, Creative Friend . . .

Navigating the jigsaw puzzle of your Instagram feed, feeling semi-insecure when a potential client/partner/customer with a better aesthetic hits the follow button (they're silently judging—you KNOW it).

Inch up your prices, hearing crickets—because your visual portfolio is circa two-thousand-and-uninspired.

Regret pitching that dream job or publication submission, feeling like you'd just send them back to a sub-par website.

Putting your brand at risk, as more and more creatives figure out the marketing visual dance and master a portfolio feed that makes your palms sweat


You could keep up what you're already doing: 


















(I mean, you're definitely doing all that anyway … right?)



Translate your story and vision into a shoot for yourself OR your clients.

Cut through the internet noise with arresting photos that cause them to double tap ... then click to your website ... and then hit add to cart. Cha-ching!

Stretch your creativity by honing an artistic editor's eye, being able to work with any image that comes across your desk, instantly knowing how you'll share it with your audience or in your portfolio (or, knowing that it's not a fit, thank-you-very-much).

Bypass the $100 in enthusiastic Target purchases you stress-bought for some DIY flatlay styling in the office, because your style kit is primed and ready to go.

Treat yourself to a that artful French press you were eyeing, because you booked a client at your highest price point ... EVER



Or?
It could be simple. 



















Since this is a 100% fixable situation, you COULD just enrol inside The Branding Shoot Method, and …

They're 100% teachable skills that every creative needs honed in this
hyper-competitive market.

Like I said, styling and visual strategy aren't skills you're "born with."

I know what it feels like to hit “publish” on images that command the price point that makes your heart skip a confident, happy beat. 

And I also know you CAN do it. 

(And that you don’t need to pay a 1-on-1 stylist to achieve it.)

You can absolutely learn this skill, and direct the visual strategy of your brand.


And one you can get - starting right now.
You don't have to save that website refresh or dream photo shoot for “someday” anymore.

(Here's a chiffon hand-dyed handkerchief from my styling kit to wipe the sweat from your brow.)
