Ellie Burscough - Personal Branding Shoot in Greece

becky rui

In January I flew out to Santorini to photograph three incredible women - this is the awesome Ellie Burscough. Ellie is based in Australia and was taking out a few months to travel Europe with her family, running her business as she went and soaking up the beauty and culture of so many amazing destinations! THE DREAM!

It was fascinating to learn about Ellies life and journey through her business, as a personal trainer, mama and competitive powerlifter(!). She coaches her clients around their mindset and strategy to share real value with the world and generate an incredible income. She helps her clients to leverage their unique gifts and offer, and helps them build what they do around their lifestyle and personal goals as she does. I really enjoyed seeing the way she kept in touch with her peeps during our days together, she's an example of a woman in business truly walking her talk - such a pleasure to capture!

On this shoot we wanted to show a mixture of things - being able to work from anywhere as she does, showcase this beautiful Greek island, and enjoying time away from her work. She wanted to use the photos on her website, in social media, emails and promotions across different platforms which you can see on her Facebook page here and website here. I love seeing what she’s sharing about and find her message and content super empowering - go look!!

Where are you planning to travel this year?

Personal Work on Film

becky rui

Shooting for myself is something I simply must do.

No matter whether you use an iPhone or professional equipment, photography is a magic art, and something I've always felt a deep calling to create with.

I tend to use film for my personal work, and find myself waiting until I have loads of rolls to send off before I get it processed and scanned... I think it's because I feel comfortable when I have the exposed film with me but can hardly bear the anticipation of waiting for the photos to come back once I've posted it off to the lab. It breaks me!! What will they come out like??? Maybe one day I'll start processing it myself.

This time I tried a new lab in Spain, Carmencita after my UK based lab moved away, and I'm really happy with their work!

This is some of my personal photography from the last 10 months or so, which feels really fun to share for a change! Friends, family, things I see... picnics with my housemates when I lived in north London last year, visiting Germany recently with my amazing partner Chris, Santorini, the Netherlands, a trip to Grandparents in Devon last summer with my mama, a day out with my lovely dad, Kew Gardens, and kind people I've met while on travels. Enjoy!

Jessica Lorimer - Personal Branding Photo Shoot

becky rui

Working with gorgeous Jess was all KINDS of fun - from these photos you'll see what a high vibe spirit she is, and an absolute genius in the work she does!!

Jess, The Sales Alchemist helps service based online business owners to generate more income by honing in on their skills and value, create seamless and simple sales funnels and get featured in industry publications - infusing fun, personality and authenticity into everything she does. I could really FEEL the heart and soul that she brings to her work, and it was a real pleasure and inspiration to capture.

As Jess uses a lot of social media to keep in touch with her community, our main focus for the images was creating a great variety of shots that she can use to promote her offers online and when being featured by online magazines. We wanted to show her truth and capture a mixture of emotions and messages - super fun to shoot. She does a Facebook Live stream EVERY DAY for her peeps, and we did one during her session too! (keeping it real guys!)

A special invitation, for the Luminaries.

becky rui

Hey lovely! Today I have a special letter (an invitation, really) for you. From the heart of one of my favourite humans. Filmmaker and Creative Strategist, Vanessa Jane.

Vanessa and I met in person in Australia when I visited last year, and omg - what a special and inspirational lady she is! We had the most beautiful time exploring Bondi together, chatting for hours in the sunshine about branding, spirituality, integrity and authenticity in life/business. As a creative branding film maker, we had a LOT to talk about!

Anyway, please do read on in the words of beautiful Vanessa... I think you're going to L.O.V.E. this.


If you are reading this, you must be one of the special ones. The ones who are a little crazy, a little brilliant, who might not fit in, who might not want to fit in. Maybe you shine a little brighterthan others around you, or you might be a little ahead of your time. You don’t just exist - you have a deeper reason for living the life and doing the work you do. Today I invite you to take it to another level, to truly embody your message and share your story through the power of film.

Steve Jobs called them the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, and the troublemakers. Joseph Campbell and Gail Laren refer to them as the Holy Fools. 

I call them Luminaries.

Gail says, Holy Fools are those who get their spark of madness on and take soul-inspired action that they know is theirs to take. They express what indigenous teachings call Original Medicine. That teaching tells us we all come to the earth with gifts and talents nowhere else duplicated. And that if we don't express those gifts, they are lost to the world for all time.

A Luminary is all that and they have a light that begs to be revealed to the world.

Sharing your talents with the world is important, whether you are a yoga teacher, a coach, a writer, speaker, designer, photographer… it matters not. It’s what you bring to what you do. A lifetime of experience and a heartfelt connection to your work. An infectious passion that infuses all you do and is contagious to all those who step into your world. A deeper story that links you to your work, perhaps even a soul stirring compulsion to do it. 

Watch my Brand Awareness Film here:  http://vanessajane.com/luminaries/

There is nothing quite like people who are like this, and and the most potent way to showcase them (you!) is through the power of film. These films are part bio, part inspirational beacon, part doco… part you. And, as we know, video and film are powerful ways to share information.

A brand awareness film is you revealed, a bite sized display that’s deep, gripping, captivating and magical. These films capture where you have been to where you are now - eliciting people’s genuine interest in learning about others.

Many people doing important work are not sure what their story is, what parts, if any, are relevant. We often discount our journey and we need someone  else to find the jewel - the essence of us - and find a way to acknowledge our wholeness.

Go into yourself. Find the reason that commands you to write (make, speak, create, share). See whether it has spread its roots into the very depths of your heart; Confess to yourself whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write (make, speak, create, share) it!” - Rainer Maria Rilke (writer)

Your story is who you are. Your voice is your strength and your vulnerability. Your story is your power - so use it.

The world we live in right now is aching for truth, light and inspiration – you can and must provide this by telling your story and sharing your heart, your message, your gifts and your light.
So, I ask you: are you ready? Ready to make film magic with Vanessa?
We invite you to take the leap, make the move, share your story - in the coolest and most relevant way possible. Film!
Find out how, here.

Love always,

Becky and Vanessa

Louise George - Personal Branding Shoot in London

becky rui

Oh wow, I LOVED this shoot!  Louise radiates joy, fun, kindness and ease, she lives by her message and it was a real pleasure and so much fun to create these photographs together in the Autumn.

With a heartfelt focus on sisterhood and community, Louise coaches her clients to create the life and business of their hearts desire, reconnecting them with their confidence and power with so much integrity, love and self awareness. We wanted the feelings of freedom, brightness, creation to flow through these images and I enjoy how much they show her in different lights from the luxury hotels where she works with her clients to hugging trees in nature. You can have it all! 

You can check out how Louise is using the shots here on Instagram or at louisegeorge.co. Enjoy the photos!
