Sussex based personal brand photographer
How I help my clients grow their business through beautiful professional images for their marketing.
Hi, I’m Rebecca Downie and I am a personal brand photographer.
I’m passionate about helping ambitious women achieve their business goals, by creating inspiring imagery that will captivate their audience. This is so much more than a job for me, even after all these years I still get excited about every single shoot I do. I love working with entrepreneurs, discovering the real stories behind their business and finding exciting new and exciting ways to portray them. Every business has interesting stories whether you are a therapist, personal trainer or lawyer.
My own story started with a very long daily commute from Haywards Heath to London, which was truly making me miserable. I dreamed of a better lifestyle, where I could use my passion for photography and spend more quality time with my children. With my background in marketing and branding, I identified a gap in the market for personality-filled images that are authentic and natural. I realised that stock brought images were not engaging because they failed to show the real person behind the business and at the end of the day “people buy people”. So, I set up my business and never looked back!
I know many women find the idea of having their photo taking challenging and so it’s an extremely important part of my job to make it fun so they can relax! Together, we carefully craft a photoshoot plan that includes gorgeous lighting, which never fails to make people look great. The result is stunning images that are infused with personality and irresistible to customers. The confidence I see in my clients to show up online after they receive their branding photos is very fulfilling; it is why I do what I do.
When I’m not behind the camera, I simply adore travelling! I have explored most of South-East Asia and Europe and even spent six years living in Sydney, where my youngest son was born. On the weekend, you will usually find me exploring the countryside or hosting enormous BBQ’s for my extensive family. Currently, I’m filling up the only spare time I have by co-chairing the PTA at my son’s local school and last year I let myself get talked into climbing Ben Nevis for charity.
So now you know all about me, I would love to hear about your story! Please call me on 0771 3923247 or email, if you would like to talk through some ideas.
To your success, Rebecca
