When it comes to personal branding photography for wellness practitioners, it’s important to stand out.

Let’s take a peek at what we created in this chiropractor branding photography session with the lovely founder of Integra Health Centre, Dr. Sapna. (more…)
Branding, branding everywhere, but what on earth does it mean? In recent years, the term “branding” has reached buzz-word level status. Its mainstream rise in popularity, however, has also brought forth countless branding myths and flat out lies, which drastically get in the way of running a winning brand.
We’re going to tackle the most common branding myths we see touted time and time again to help you understand what matters most when it comes to building a brand that stands out and performs strategically. (more…)
People tend to shop with their eyes first, which means that your brand needs compelling product photography and dynamic product images. Gooseberry’s beautiful, creative product photography in Toronto draws a potential customer in and connects them emotionally to your product by telling a brand story.

In The Dark Knight Rises, Bruce Wayne (Batman) is thrown into a prison deemed impossible to escape. His back is broken, he’s immobilized and left to watch his beloved city of Gotham get destroyed (bear with me, I have a point, I swear).
Little by little, Wayne’s back heals and he starts exercising aggressively to regain his strength. One of his fellow prisoners asks, “Why do you build yourself?” After all, their surroundings are insurmountable.
Wayne replies, “I’m not going to die in here.”
And what happens?
…well, it is a superhero movie. He vanquishes all odds, breaks free and returns to Gotham just in the nick of time to face his enemies and save the world. Obviously.
Superhero surrealism aside, I’ve been thinking about that line, “Why build yourself?” quite a bit during self-isolation amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Blame it on all the movies I’ve been watching or my lifelong adoration of fiction for inspiration. (more…)
