HEADSHOT & PERSONAL BRANDING


Bridget has been awarded a Master Portrait Photographer Accreditation from The Portrait Masters, only one of two in Africa and the brainchild behind BC Photography. She works from her professional home studio in Blairgowrie.


This gallery is typical of my local and international clients' professional headshot and personal branding portraits.


The objective of a professional portrait is to reveal something more about who you are. In contrast, a headshot is a head-and-shoulders portrait that focuses on the face and helps identify you.


My headshot and personal branding gallery represent examples captured over 16 plus years for business, corporate, publication and personal branding purposes.


It is not your job to pose yourself and look photogenic. It is my job to make you look and feel incredible.


I invite you to a portrait session with me.

It will change the way you see yourself.

Here are four tips to help you choose the right headshot portrait photographer.
