Southdowns Introductions – Case study


Images of Tara for her website for a (then) soon to be launched company.  Tara was very nervous about having her photograph taken.


We offered experience and advice (ie on location) to ensure a pleasurable experience.

Produced a set of photographs ready for the website.

Building brand awareness:  having heard the background to the reasons she created her new company, I could see the potential for some press coverage with such an interesting story.  I therefore suggested that she engage a professional press release writer – someone we regularly work with and highly recommend – to draw that together.  Tara agreed and a press release was compiled, and pitched to local press accompanied by our images.


Excellent local media coverage:

Images for her website and ready for future press/marketing use:



I hate having photos taken as I always hate the end result – Susi and the team are completely fantastic and make you feel so relaxed.  It is the first time ever that I have photos I love!  I have gone from hating all my photos to being proud of them – there was not one photo that they did that I did not like and could not use – it was the best money I ever spent.

It’s vital for my business that I have up to date professional photos but I was so nervous – I didn’t know what to expect – everything that Susi said it was going to be like was exactly what happened – it was a dynamic process that worked in keeping me relaxed and comfortable.

Susi really worked on getting to know me as a person – she is very approachable, friendly, professional and adaptable.  There were no surprises the whole process was transparent.  Vervate is a bespoke personal adaptable service.
