"I have to let you know how impressed I am
with Silke and her work. I’ve worked with many different photographers through my branding and marketing business and what I really like about Silke is her ability to guide models through the shoot to avoid awkward poses. She is not just extremely capable from a technical point of view, but also has a creative eye to pick out what goes on around the subject. She won’t leave the details to chance which makes her the perfect person for any picky business owner who is looking to create a strong brand and visual identity."
The first thing I came to find out about Anna is that she is an absolute perfectionist. A woman with charge, always one step ahead. Knowing this, I felt challenged to live up to her standards and exceed her expectations. But then she mentioned a booked staycation at Raffles hotel to celebrate her birthday and offered to hold part the photoshoot there, and my heart jumped with joy.
Being in the marketing business for many years, she knew exactly what she wanted; timeless elegance with a twist of fun, where Raffles Hotel was a perfect fit. Driven as she is, she came well-prepared. To be honest, the amount of props she brought left the other guests wondering whether or not she would be moving in permanently.
In the end it always pays off when clients come well prepared. As we had plenty of outfits styles and loads of props for different compositions I made sure we leveraged that divine location to the maximum. While Raffles Hotel was more on the luxury side we also wanted a more relaxed style, therefore we had planned another location: my home studio.
For my lifestyle studio she brought in another special prop: one of her dear girlfriends to act as a potential client. Needless to say, she ended up with a huge gallery full of fun and spot on imagery ready to go on her website and social media.
