What do you do? Tell us a bit about what you do.
I shout about brilliant business ideas and their founders’ success, building profiles in the media and positioning people as thought leaders in their field. As a publicist I’ve worked in PR for more than 8 years, on everything from cars to chocolate – eventually finding my niche in business and entrepreneurship, across a variety of industries to keep things interesting. I started my own business a few months ago and have been lucky to work with digital marketing experts, artists, book launches, property experts and even a wine retailer.
Tell me about how you got into your field.
After completing a double major in Psychology and Public Relations at Monash University and a few internships, I landed a role working at Honda Australia where I helped launch some exciting hybrid cars and learnt from some very talented people. From there I picked up the pace and moved to agency life. I even moved to Sydney for a few years before returning home to Melbourne, the land of great coffee.
Why did you choose to have professional profile photos taken and what will you use your portraits for?
While I live for the rush of seeing my clients faces in the news, I admit I’ve been slow to warm to the idea of putting my own face and name out there. I’m currently building a website for my new business and wanted some photos with personality.
Why did you choose to hire Lizzy C Photography?
I looked at a few photographers, but fell in love with Lizzy’s portraits of people who looked kind, friendly and whom I’d want to do business with. They were corporate without feeling too staged and all looked like lovely people.
Tell us about your experience working with her. Were you happy with the results of your shoot?
Lizzy C Photography was definitely the right choice! I had lost a bit of sleep in anticipation of the shoot and turned up a bit flustered after my GPS wanted to take me on a 5 hour detour, but Lizzy made me feel instantly relaxed. It was easy and the photos turned out great. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking to get professional portraits taken.
