WHAT IS BRANDING PHOTOGRAPHY?

Branding photography establishes, creates and sustains your business’s aesthetic, mood and presence. It is about consistently creating and curating gorgeous on-going original visual content for your blog and social media feeds to keep your audience enthralled and growing while making your brand stand out in the marketplace. Imagine showing off your brand and having everyone immediately say, “Whoa! This looks like a magazine!” or “How did you do that?” Whatever your preferred style, Gooseberry applies years of professional work experience in the print and digital publishing industry to help turn your passion into a business that turns heads and allows you to live the meaningful life you’ve always dreamed of.


WHAT KIND OF BRANDS HAVE YOU WORKED FOR?

You name it, Gooseberry has photographed it! We’ve worked with national fashion brands, food companies, beauty and cosmetic brands, jewellery companies, beverage companies, dog brands, events, nutritionists, designers, bloggers, influencers, and shoot personal branding concepts for business people from all walks of life! Whoever we work with, our goal is always the same — to deliver imaginative, vibrant and compelling photography that attracts clients and an audience to your brand/product/company.


DO I GET TO CHOOSE MY FINAL PHOTOGRAPHS?

Yes, absolutely! All Branding Photoshoots come with the freedom for you to choose exactly which images you want to see in your final collection.


HOW DO WE DECIDE WHERE TO HAVE A PHOTOSHOOT?

As a full service, all in-house photography and branding studio, Gooseberry takes care of every imaginable detail to make your shoot a reality. This includes location scouting to bring your vision to life. We’ll find you the ideal location for your photoshoot.


DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO?

Yes. Gooseberry is a professional studio located in downtown Toronto. Our space is about 400 sq feet, sun-soaked and always available for your shoot if preferred.


HOW DO I DECIDE WHAT TO WEAR FOR A PHOTOSHOOT?

Our Branding Photography Packages offer a professional styling option should you be interested. Our in-house stylist will create memorable head-to-toe looks for you that really pop on camera, but remain genuinely you.


DO YOU OFFER HAIR AND MAKEUP SERVICES?

Yes, absolutely! Our in-house hair and makeup artist (she is a wizard with a makeup brush!) will create beautiful makeup looks just for you! Whether you’re looking for something natural and down-to-earth or what to go full editorial, our studio has you covered!


WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS ON MY SHOOT DATE?

We reschedule to the next available date. Canadian weather can be tricky, but our flexible rescheduling policy makes sure it isn’t a headache to work around.


WHAT IS THE “BRAND IDENTITY DOCUMENT” LISTED IN THE SPARK PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGE?

Great question! A Brand Identity Document is a brand building tool, strategically designed to help bring your business idea into the spotlight. Gooseberry applies years of experience building brands from scratch (including magazines, blogs, products etc). This document is the foundation of your brand or business — delivering a well thought out brand identity to help your business make a splash in the marketplace and a step-by-step action plan to help you hit your goals! Ideal for those who are just starting out, who are wishing to rebrand or who want to take their small business to the next level.


WHAT IF I NEED MODELS FOR MY BUSINESS’S BRANDING PHOTOGRAPHY?

Gooseberry can help you cast talented models from our exclusive roster. Or we can direct you to agencies if you prefer.


DOES GOOSEBERRY TRAVEL FOR BRANDING PHOTOSHOOTS?

Gooseberry is delighted to travel for an inspiring project! Please note that travel fees will apply.


ARE ON-GOING BRANDING SHOOTS (IE: ON A MONTHLY BASIS) AN OPTION WITH GOOSEBERRY?

Yes! Custom quotes for monthly branding photoshoots are always available should you be interested.


HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY PHOTOSHOOT WITH GOOSEBERRY?

Please feel free to book your photo shoots as far in advance as you’d like! For example, in March we have clients putting down deposits for fall photoshoots. Typically shoots are scheduled for a date 2-3 weeks after a deposit is placed to allow for plenty of planning time. Please note that our schedule does fill up quickly and we only shoot a certain number of projects per month to ensure we are delivering the best quality and experience possible.  Please always feel free to contact us with your preferred date and we’ll do our best to accommodate you!

NONE OF YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY OR BRANDING PACKAGES ARE EXACTLY WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR. ARE CUSTOM PACKAGES AVAILABLE?

Gooseberry is more than happy to provide a custom quote for your project! Branding projects are rarely one-size-fits-all and putting together a custom package option for you would be our pleasure.


I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS. CAN I SPEAK WITH GOOSEBERRY BEFORE DECIDING TO BOOK?
