Looking back on an extensive career in Sales & Marketing I've always had an interest in the way things are perceived. It's fascinating that the same product, person or artwork is perceived in a very individual & different way. I mean a product that doesn't change physically but is still a catalyst for literally 100's of different opinions. As a Branding Specialist & Photographer, there honestly hasn't been a single time where a person has said "I love that picture of me", oddly 98% of the time everyone else thinks the picture is amazing!
I've spent the last 40 years primarily working in the Luxury Industry on globally known European Luxury Brands & Premier Hotels. Over that time I've always experienced things on an emotional level. How does this person or product make me feel? As a photographer when I make a picture of a person or product, what is the emotional engagement I get? I love using the modern tools we have at our disposal to really get down to the key elements of branding and presentation. Turning thoughts into an actual empathy based experience.
I have the privilege of working with a host of different clients every day, helping them to present their authentic brand. A brand that delivers that fundamental emotional connection with their target customers. I'm grateful that I get to do what I love and work with such a variety of different people.
I'm looking forward to working with you, your dreams can be your future! All you need to do is tell your story, your way.

Photography is an emotional experience for me, I need to express what I feel when I make a picture.
"I exclusively use Randall for my client's empathy mapping, branding photography and headshots. Often people do not like having their photos taken or opening up to strangers and Randall has the right amount of warmth and firmness to draw out the real them and make them feel comfortable. I also love the work he has done for my personal branding photos."

Randall produced some beautiful corporate head shots for our team. He made us all feel so comfortable in front of the camera and coaxed a great shot out of everyone, even those who were super shy. I highly recommend him!
