"I wanted to find an expert to capture strong images for my branding. I did my research and I found someone exceptional. Her attention to detail blew me away. I knew I'd found an expert and the money became irrelevant.
Vicki is the perfect example of why I work with experts. When I find someone amazing I could cry. It's taken me ages to find the best people. I've spent so much money on mediocrity.
This has been worth every penny. She is AMAZING. I had a great feeling from the minute we spoke. Her work has actually blown my mind and she was so much fun to work with. My best advice - go and book Vicki Knights!"
- Karen Kissane Coaching
"Vicki's work has blown my mind!"
"From the outset Vicki was so helpful in giving me ideas about the sort of images that might work for my Personal Training website.
Like many people I hate to have my picture taken and I really did fear that I'd cringe when I received them back. I was so nervous arriving at the shoot because of this but immediately Vicki completely put my mind at rest because she is such a relaxed and happy person to be around. She was full of ideas and I actually ended up thoroughly enjoying the shoot.
Vicki really captured the fact that I was happy and relaxed and this was exactly the feeling I wanted to get across in the photos for my website. I can honestly say that I love absolutely every photo that was taken. I would 100% recommend Vicki."
- Tanya White
"Vicki really is the very best!"
"Vicki helped to source a great location for the shoot and answered any & every question I had.
In my honest opinion she is the world's best branding photographer. Whenever people ask who took my photos I say TWBBP. When they ask what the acronym stands for I say The World's Best Branding Photographer.
Vicki was amazing with my family, she had a calming & loving energy. The photos were perfect. I'm looking forward to booking TWBBP in the near future.
- Dominic London
"Working with Vicki was world class from start to finish"
"Vicki is very friendly and professional in every aspect of her work. I needed detailed shots for manuals, group shots for Reiki courses and photos of me dancing.
Vicki adapted to all of these requests and was full of practical ideas on how to make everything fit into a day. She is versatile, engaging and best of all got photographs of me that I love and that show me as me."
- Georgina Watts
"I highly recommend Vicki!"

I honestly had so much fun and the photos are STUNNING. She's a creative genius.
You'd be bonkers not to hire her for your shoot. I can't wait to work with her for years to come!
Demi Aspey, Founder of Sonder Script
"Vicki makes you feel so comfortable"
I was really nervous, but everything about Vicki put me at ease. She really understood what my concerns were and is able to allay those worries at every step of the way
It really is a masterclass in understanding your clients.
The photos were exactly what I was looking for - natural, relaxed & fresh. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Vicki.
Laura Price, The Home Organisation
"It couldn't have been a better experience"
"We had a branding shoot with Vicki to launch our new product. She totally understood our brief, she helped us prepare in advance, suggested a great location for the shoot, and produced some wonderful shots for our website and promo material.
It was a challenging brief with 2 of us to consider but Vicki made sure we got all the images we needed. Not only were the photos fantastic but we had great fun on the day! Thanks Vicki! "
Jo & Kate, Phox Planner
"Vicki was amazing from start to finish"
It was an absolute dream to have worked with Vicki on my first branding shoot.
Vicki was so generous with her time and advice—especially helping a first timer like me feel comfortable in front of the camera. The process from start to finish was seamless and I had so much fun with reviewing and selecting my final images (not to mention the raving feedback from friends and family). I can highly recommend Vicki and will definitely be working with her again in future!"
Elizabeth Pepler, High Performance Coach
"Vicki did an amazing job"
I have over 15 years of branding and marketing experience and I can expertly capture images that will show the heart and soul of your business.
I’ll work with you to create authentic images that show your audience who you are and what you stand for.
"Vicki is a great photographer who has mastered her craft. Professional, organised, personable and has a keen eye for how to make her subjects look fantastic and feel comfortable.
I had a branding session with Vicki for my coaching business. She captured me perfectly. I will be coming back for any future photo needs. Highly recommended "
- Mandy Tucker
"Wow, wow, wow!"
"It's been wonderful having Vicki photographing my retreat in Marbella this weekend - the quality of her photographs has blown me away, they absolutely capture the fun we've all had.
Vicki also took some lovely flattering photos of me for my website too (I was dreading that part, but she made it fun!) These will keep my brand fresh and help me to reflect what I'm offering. I would wholeheartedly recommend Vicki - she was a pleasure to work with and I've also really enjoyed her company on this retreat too."
— Ruth Clougherty, Gin & Yin
"Her photos have blown me away"
You’re not alone. Nearly every woman I’ve ever photographed (and that's hundreds!) said they hate having their photo taken.
You know how important your brand and visibility is.
You know how crucial that first impression is.
But you’ve been putting off booking a personal branding photo shoot for too long.
I totally understand. I hate having my photo taken too. But I also know how great it feels when it’s all done and you have a great selection of images you can use across your website and on social media.
My superpower is making even the most camera-shy person relax in front of my camera. Within 10 minutes of starting, the nerves dissipate and you’ll find yourself actually enjoying it!
We always think we’re not photogenic enough, skinny enough, stylish enough. But you are enough, I promise!
I’ll hold your hand through the whole process.
From our clarity call before the session, giving you advice on clothing and make up and guiding you into the most flattering poses on the day of the shoot.
I do everything I can to make sure the whole experience is enjoyable for you, and that you're delighted with the results of your shoot.
I’ve been a branding photographer for well over a decade and have become known as one of the leading branding photographers in the UK.
I’m so passionate about what I do. I adore making people feel comfortable in front of my camera and producing images that they will love. I genuinely care about my clients which is why so many of them return to me year after year.
I’ve photographed famous authors, renowned coaches, branding experts and hundreds of inspiring entrepreneurs. My work has been featured internationally in publications including Vanity Fair, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Practical Photography and Cosmopolitan to name just a few.
I also train professional photographers, I’ve spoken at photography conventions and I co-hosted a top-rated podcast for creatives called Shoot Edit Chat Repeat.
I also help business owners to become more visible and build their personal brands with my 121 mentoring, retreats and strategy sessions.
"I had high hopes about my shoot with Vicki, having seen her outstanding photos on her website. But the shoot far surpassed my expectations. Vicki was immediately responsive and helpful when I approached her. She furnished me with lots of information about how best to prepare for the branding shoot, which meant we had everything we needed for the day. On the day, she was sunny, calm and lovely to work with. We ended up having a really fun day with lots of laughs! Thank you Vicki. I could not recommend you more!'
— Lucy Johnson, Green Salon
"The shoot far surpassed my expections"
"Vicki is highly professional and with a lovely warmth that makes it easy to stand in front of the camera and be snapped at! She listened to what my business was about and offered her expertise on where would be best to have the shoot.
She delivered a beautiful set of photos, which are just what I wanted! I have been inundated with positive feedback and comments about the photos on my new website. "
— Nadia Nagamootoo
"I highly recommend Vicki."

"I'm a new young entrepreneur, I was nervous about investing in a photo shoot by someone I didn't know, but all the positive reviews were accurate!
Vicki is such a down to earth individual, great communication & preparation before the shoot day. On the day, everything went smoothly, great vibes & conversation, Vicki helped me with posing.When I saw the gallery, I was truly blown away... Very rarely do I like pictures of myself, but I loved these all!
Thank you so much Vicki for your talent & support for new entrepreneurs, looking forward to working with you again very soon." - Ruth Ssebuliba

No need to worry about not having a venue for your shoot. I will suggest locations or we can have it at my garden lifestyle studio. See more photos from my studio in this blog post.
"Vicki was so friendly and created such a lovely relaxed atmosphere. It was also great to use her beautiful garden studio and the accompanying changing booth, as it made it incredibly easy to store and switch into different outfits. I've only shared one of the photographs so far and had a deluge of compliments, with a great selection of photos still to use for my book and website. All in all, very happy with the results and would definitely recommend Vicki and her lovely garden studio to anyone looking to get some professional photographs done. Thanks so much Vicki"

"Vicki was the right balance between friendly, professional and efficient. The whole process with her from initial discovery phone call, to final images was effortless and that only comes with time and experience (which she has both).
I highly recommend her and it’s worth mentioning that she only had my best interest at heart. I described my needs and originally thought I would, be sold the expensive package but she recommended what best suited my needs. She is a breath of fresh air! "
- Yessica Diez
"Vicki is a breath of fresh air!"
"Vicki Knights is an talented professional. I went to her with my colleague for a personal branding shoot and the photos are outstanding.
From the moment I made contact she sent over valuable information to help us prep for the session to get the best out of it. She was so familiar with the venue on the day that there was no time wasted and she understands the variety of images needed for various purposes to make sure we got out of it what we needed - and more. I loved being directed by her wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."

"I worked with Vicki on my personal branding photo shoot and she was a total pro. Right from the off, Vicki had a very slick and streamlined process in place to make sure I was prepared for the shoot, so I would get the most from our time together. When it came to the day itself, Vicki was fantastic at putting me at ease, which made the whole process much more enjoyable than I'd expected it to be. She was great fun to spend time with and was brilliant at listening to what I wanted but also suggesting great spots for different shots."

Great, I have answers!

It can also take time for us to book venues, plan props etc, so the more time we have, the better!
Personal branding photography is exactly as it sounds…it’s photos that are for your business and brand that show your personality. A cheesy headshot in front of a mottled background just doesn’t cut it anymore!
If you want to stand out and connect with your dream clients, you need magazine worthy images that will show exactly what it’s like to work with you. We will include headshots, but your shoot will be so much more than that…I will capture images that shows your potential clients what is feels like to work with you. Read this blog post to find out 4 reasons why you need to build your personal brand and get visible in your business.
I do edit all of your images by hand before they are uploaded to your gallery for viewing. This means spending time ensuring the colours are accurate, and yes I do a little bit of skin smoothing as my camera are very sharp! However I still want you to look like you, so I don’t slim my clients down or make them look 10 years younger.
You look lovely just the way you are, and I feel passionate that you should show an authentic version of yourself to the world. I will help you to look the best version of yourself.
Absolutely not! I don’t photograph models, I photograph real women, and none of them knew how to pose before their shoots with me either!
I will gently direct you during the shoot to ensure you’re in the most flattering poses. And don’t worry about not knowing what to do with your hands….I’ve got you covered!
Don't worry, I will help you with this. It's important that the location suits you and your business perfectly.
Whether it's your home, a boutique hotel, the beach, the forest or my garden lifestyle studio.
I have lots of venue suggestions in Surrey and I also work with a styled home company, so you can choose from lots of different homes (at an additional fee).
I will send you my preparation guide which gives you lots of outfit and make up advice. I can share my little black book of make up artists & stylists if you would like some help with this.
I will help you choose the perfect location for you and we'll have a clarity call before the shoot to discuss all of the details of the shoot including outfits, location, shot list etc.
If you need help getting clear on your personal brand and you aren't certain on your values, purpose & brand personality, you can book a Personal Brand Clarity Session with me at an extra cost. (As a photography client you can get 20% off this service)
Yes I do! I provide personal brand mentoring to help you get visible in your business with genuine confidence and I run my annual Visibility Retreat, you can see details here.
I also train fellow branding photographers. I have an online course called The Art and Business of Branding Photography, a brand photography posing guide and I co-host workshop retreats for branding photographers.
Definitely not, I hate the hard sell as much as you do. All of my prices are completely upfront and transparent, so there are no nasty surprises after the session. I have over hundred 5 star reviews on Google and many more hundreds of delighted clients, so you have no worries there!
"I've used Vicki for some branding pictures for my coaching business on two separate occasions, and she's not only done an outstanding job by taking some stunning shots, but she's also been able to put me at ease with her sunny personality and great sense of humour.
I'll definitely be using her services again. Highly recommended."
