Styling & Photography
Having always dreamed of being a photo stylist but wanting to stay living in her hometown on the southern end of the Gold Coast. Tanika was thrilled when she discovered a gap in the industry. Suddenly with the rise of social media, small independent businesses were expected to have the same quality of photography as you would see in a magazine. So with some great first clients, she was able to trial and test how she could do this work for her favourite local businesses without costing them a fortune … Now 5 years later this is the most in-demand service of her business. And now she’s not only serving companies on the Gold Coast but travels around Australia to work with companies that particularly like how Tanika styles and brings to light their products.
How it works:
Depending on the product … will determine how the photo shoot will be organised and how many photos can be produced in the time booked. Tanika can do everything for you … provide props, hunt out a location, liaison with home or store owner, do all the set up etc all herself and/or with the help of Leanne (her assistant) if it is a bigger product. Or if you would like to be involved and have more control over the finished product, you are welcome to come along to the shoot and work with Tanika to get exactly what you have envisioned for your product. You are also welcome to find the location for the shoot yourself if you have somewhere in mind. Every shoot is different and hard to put a flat rate on so you are always best emailing Tanika with details and examples of what you are after and she will send you a quote and give you an estimate of how many photos she will be able to supply for you (all edited of course). Bookings generally need to be made 1 month in advance.
It's completely your choice if you just want Tanika to do the photography side of the shoot, and you can style it yourself, or have someone else style it ... and vice versa, if you just want her to style and get someone else to do the photography or do the photography yourself. She is all for collaborating with other creatives and open to any ideas.
This isn't just limited to homewares and furniture products (though that it is what she is most known for), Tanika has also had a lot of experience in property photography, profile shots, stationary, fabric and finishes flat lays, beauty products and would love to be doing more food related products.
Her photos are not limited just to social media, her quality photography is most often used all over her clients websites, emails and other marketing, whether that is in print or online. Her work has been used as big as a billboard, in many different magazines and on well known blogs.
Photo shoots start at $150.
