SHOOT & TELL
New photos, new bio, new you! An exclusive personal rebrand experience.
Reignite your WOW with Shoot & Tell’s personal rebrand experience day
Get stunning professional photos matched to a compelling new ‘About Me’ story – perfect for use on your website, LinkedIn profile, speaker bio and more!
Hey there, founders, creators, thinkers, see-ers and do-ers!
You’ve worked hard to create beautifully curated products and services for your clients – and now it’s time for you to take centre-stage and get noticed too!
Your image and your voice go hand-in-hand to tell the story of who you are, what you do, and why you do it. One without the other is like skipping the punchline of a joke, or getting to the end of a novel only to find the last few pages are missing – it’s only half the story!
Our respective crafts – photography and copywriting – create the biggest impact for a professional like you when they happen together. We’re storytellers at heart – using our camera and keyboard to craft compelling narratives for women in business that empower them to step into their space and own their value.
Shoot & Tell is the holistic experience that transforms your entire personal brand. Armed with a new set of professional images, backed by a refreshed personal brand story, you can present yourself confidently to the world!
We invite you to join us for this very special inaugural event – one day only!

Elevate your personal brand
Two value-packed personal branding sessions combined in one unique experience.
Shoot & Tell is an exclusive experience that transforms your personal brand holistically – through stunning new professional imagery, and a captivating new ‘About Me’ brand story.
You’ll start with our ‘Personal Brand Strategy’ process, using a questionnaire which you complete in advance. We’ll tailor a mini ‘Personal Brand Snapshot’ to you, to make sure we capture what’s unique about you and your brand on the day!
Your shoot and interview take place at The Loft Studio – a gorgeous warehouse space with lots of different props and spaces. We’ve chosen it because of its chameleon-like ability to change up scenes for each of our attendees, to bring each individual personal brand to life.
The Shoot & Tell experience with us takes an hour, but we encourage you to arrive early and stay on after to enjoy the atmosphere, meet other professional women, and have a glass or two of bubbles.
Are you completely in love with your current profile pics?
… or have you and your business evolved? Fresh, professional headshots from Nics at Nicole Pas photography will capture your personality and vision – helping you to step up and own your space!
Do you stumble over your words when asked 'what do you do?'
We’ll help you capture people’s attention and make them feel invested in your story! An interview and new personal bio from Mish at The Storytelling Business will find the heart of who you are and what you do.
Do you feel confident telling people to check out your website?
…or are outdated photos and an old or hastily written profile holding you back? A personal brand refresh with Shoot & Tell will let your true essence shine through on all the digital channels and elevate your professionalism.
Have you refreshed your business brand or changed your services & products?
Then it’s time to elevate your personal brand to keep pace, reflect where you’re at now in your professional life, and better connect with your ideal clients and customers!
It’s your time to shine!
Posing in front of a camera or talking about yourself and your achievements can be daunting. As women, we’re taught to stay out of the spotlight and let others shine.
Bugger that, we say!
Shoot & Tell is your time to reclaim a little space, in a safe, encouraging and supportive environment where we bring out your best. There’s no judgement here – whether you’re a little shy or want to shout your achievements from the big kitchen bench in our photographic studio!
“It was like magic!”
I wanted to connect to the people I serve, and I wanted them to know me. It’s not an easy thing to find someone who can just turn a conversation into a story, that you can link to your business. You are clever in how you do it. I just talked to you over the phone and you came back with my story – it was like magic! You’ve got that key ingredient, and I tell everyone I come across ‘you should talk to Michelle’.

“It’s worth the investment in your brand.”
I’ve participated in several branding photo shoots with Nicole. So much effort and thought goes into these days. Nic maximises the value you receive and is amazing at putting you at ease in front of the camera. The importance of professional images can’t be underestimated for any small business. Well worth the investment in your brand.
