Do you love helping others, but feel stuck trying to reach the ones who could use your help the most?

The Internet has made marketing easier for yoga teachers and health & wellness professionals, but it’s still hard to get your offerings noticed with all of the competition out there. The good news is that there are simple steps you can take to find the clients you need to be successful, and to serve the people you want to serve.

The yoga of success: develop your brand, then market your services.

One mistake I see lots of small businesses make is to put their marketing cart before their branding horse. Branding establishes who you are; your look, personality, story and purpose. Marketing inspires people to invest in your services. Just as our yoga practice will fail if we only work on our bodies and not on our minds, so it is with building a business. Without creating a solid brand as your foundation, you are bound to waste a lot of time and money on marketing.

What is branding photography?

I help you build your brand through visual storytelling. Branding Photography creates an instantly recognizable visual style for your brand, and attracts the right audience to your message. It combines Lifestyle Photography, Headshots, Candids, Event Photography, Product Photography and Video Content.

Sounds good, where do I start?

  1. The first step on your path to success is to book a Branding Consultation. I will help you define your goals, determine storylines to attract your ideal clients, and plan your first photo shoot.

  2. Through private training (or one of my public workshops) I will teach you the yoga of being comfortable in front of a camera. It’s OK if you hate having your picture taken or feel camera shy, we will flip that narrative on its head.

  3. We collaborate in fun in-studio or on-location photo shoots. The photography sessions can be simple candids from your everyday life, or highly stylized shoots that include wardrobe changes, hair and makeup, and props. It all depends on the goals we develop for your brand.

  4. I provide High Quality Photos from the session to use in social media, websites, newsletters, print and to share with journalists. No hidden costs; you get to keep all the edited pics and you don’t have to credit me when you use them. But you probably will be telling all your friends how great your experience was!

Your Style. Your Story. Your Business.

You are the star of the show. My job is to give you amazing tools to succeed.

I would definitely recommend working with Derek. Great, comfortable studio and he makes you feel right at home. Quick and responsive over email. Look no further if you need a headshot done in Brooklyn for a reasonable price.

Being photographed typically makes me tense and nervous but Derek made the experience easy and enjoyable. He really listened and understood the kind of photos I was looking for and made sure I got what I wanted!

I LOVE Derek’s work. He has such a welcoming and relaxed manner and the studio is cheerful and unpretentious on the first floor of a homey brownstone. I’m going back!
