Meet My Client!

Christine is a social media strategist.  She is based in New York.  Christine is serious fun on social media.  She was one of the Top Tweeters at Social Media Marketing World this year.  She’s quick fire!  We recently shot together to capture some Turbo San Diego Headshots.  Here’s what happened.

Shooting At Social Media Marketing World 2018

I met Christine at #SMMW17 and then in the run up to #SMMW18 we re-connected on Twitter.  After hitting it off like wildfire, Christine decided to book me for a Turbo Headshot session during Social Media Marketing World to capture her time there.  You can get your tickets for next year here.

The Turbo Planning

To plan this session, I knew straight away from Christine’s style and vibes that we would be shooting at The Gaslamp District.  You’ll see why in a mo.

 Planning Turbo Takeaways

From the quick planning that I did with Christine, a quick and concise wish list developed that included some key factors.  I knew that it was crucial to involve and include the following factors in the San Diego Headshot Shoot:

  • This was to document her time in San Diego. Not necessarily replace existing headshot.
  • We wanted to add more narrative to her established brand.
  • Lots o’ Fun, Lots o’ Energy!

Shoot day was fabulous.  I had planned a couple of little routes around Gaslamp going on the method of strolling and shooting.  I love to do this especially with clients I haven’t gotten to know wellyet.  Walking around and chatting is like having a meeting, mastermind, giggle all the while we’re taking pictures.

Here’s a song to get playing whilst you read the rest of this blog.  I think it sets the tone well.


Rendezvous at Blo

The US Blow Bar is far more established than our UK counterparts.  Blo is a US Wide Chain.  Next time you are stateside, go get yo hair fixed!

With fresh bounce to the locks we went straight into some dreamy morning light.  A tree was casting this gorgeous dappled effect on the wall.  This made our first backdrop.

Further down the street we were delinquents and we played right in the middle of the road.  It was SO WORTH IT

Christine’s Batman Red Vibes n Style

On seeing a mural of Blondie we had to stop and set up a quick laptop moment.

We then headed to the harbour and looked for more of an open space to play around with.  Just nearby to the Exhibition Centre, there are the train lines that run the San Diego Red Trolley which happens to be RED (obvs).

We did a practice catwalk sashay – which I have to say Christine was a natural at!  Then, when the time was right we got this beauty of the train being controlled by Christine’s Social Media Strategist Powers.
