In the press...magazine photoshoot...


Way back in November, when this New Year seemed a zillion light-years away, we got called up for a fun magazine photoshoot for Surrey Life Magazine. It was conceived and styled by the gorgeous Surrey Frills gals and was all about five Surrey influencers. With personal branding portraits at the heart of what we do, we jumped at the chance of working with not only one but five people in one shoot to capture the essence of their personal brand.


With an early start at Guildford's Harbour House Hotel, the crew and influencers assembled to talk through hair & makeup, styling and also which props would appear in their individual portraits that best represented their sphere of influence. From Mr Reigate - Barry Waring to Amy Day from Love Island, the gardening expert Victoria Stanton right through to the super fun Sally Hurman from Getting Stuff Done in Heels, and wine sommelier Emily Lambert - unusual props were not hard to come up with!

Whilst hair and makeup was in full swing, we set about organising our lighting, reflectors and camera angles to capture each influencer in a different location for their individual portraits which was part of our brief for this particular magazine photoshoot, along with a final group shot. The great thing about working as a team (as we do at Surrey Social Stock Photography) is that there's always an extra set of eyes to analyse a set-up or check a vignette or simply get the subject's pose just right for the perfect shot.
