1. Use a tray and fill with water from a jug (cover any holes where the water might come out!) 2. Place your vinyl or card surface under the clear tray 3. Use a hairdryer to make beautiful ripples in the water 4. Use a fast shudder speed if shooting natural light to capture the crisp rolls in the water 5. Ta-da 🥳

One to One Photography Support for Product Photographers — Helena Rose Photography
The 1:1 session with Helena was the best thing I did for my business. It feels like you sit down with a friend, who completely gets you and understands what you're going through. Before chatting with Helena, I felt overwhelmed and wasn't sure how to move forward with my business. It felt refreshing to talk to someone who has been through all these feelings and has such great insights into the industry and a lot of knowledge to share. I really can recommend booking a session with Helena.

"I want to say a massive thank you to Helena for all of her help during our one to one mentoring session. She was absolutely lovely and so willing to share and to help. The Voxer app we used to chat worked really well as it allowed us to dip in and out, without feeling the intense pressure of a fixed time Zoom session. Our conversation and voice notes are recorded so I can refer back and listen again to the help she gave me."

This 1-1 support session was more than I could have asked for! As a starting product photographer, I had so many questions ranging from how to book clients to portfolio feedback, and Helena's advice was so helpful, step by step practical, she even mentioned concepts that I never would have thought of! I seriously cannot recommend her enough! Excited to book my next session with her!" Vanina Howan, Portland Oregon

How to work remotely with photography clients
Working remotely can be challenging. The client isn’t there on set to see what you’re doing, give you insights or share what they like. So how do we work remotely and produce results the client will love, especially when photography is so subjective? The key to creating work clients will love when they are not physically there is over-communication (and having everything written down!) In this post, I take you through how I work with clients remotely, step-by-step.

That's why I've launched these 1-1 sessions using the voice noting app, Voxer. This is a chance to hash out all your unanswered questions, doubts and concerns that have been niggling at you.

How to find success as a shy photographer
If you’re shy, or an introvert like me, I want to dispel the myth that being introverted is something to hold you back, especially when it comes to business. You don’t need to pretend to be loud and excitable to execute your job well! You don’t need to adopt a new personality either in order to work with clients and have them like you for who you are. Read my blog post about how best to embrace your introverted nature to find success as a photographer!
