PERSONAL BRAND PORTRAITS
Hi! Thanks for visiting my site, I want to personally welcome you. My name is Ilana and I'm a creative by day and comedian by night.
I've always had a strong passion for photography and video, so I'm extremely grateful to do what I love every day.
What makes my work so great is the people I work with and relationships I build. Whether you need content for your personal brand, social media, or website - I make it my goal to make sure your experience is personable and exceptional.
I'm here for you and I'm ready to help tell your story.
I specialize in personal branding and
also work as a video director and stop motion artist.
My bread and butter, however, is personal branding. I absolutely love directing my clients and making their personalities pop visually. In addition to still images, I've developed "Moving Portraits" which are essentially like GIFs. Instead of just a photo, it is a series of burst photographs capturing you doing an activity that are edited together to create a stop motion video as a portrait. This style really shows off who you are and is highly engaging content!
Check out my work and what we can accomplish together.
So we're working together? Amazing!
Let me shed some light on what to
1. The Brand Sheet.
I will send you a worksheet with some
questions that will help me understand you and your brand better. This way, I can better brainstorm ideas
for our shoot(s) and get to know you.
2. The Consultation
We will hop on the phone or zoom so we can go over some concepts together and you can get to know me more as well. If you haven't already told me what packages/shoots you want, we can decide together what is best for you and we'll book it in the
3. The Prep
I will make sure to prep anything that
is needed pre-shoot as well as make
sure you know what to wear, bring,
and have ready!
4. The Shoot
This is the fun part! You should not stress or worry at all as everything
will be prepped and ready. I will be
directing and guiding the process/you
the entire time. It will be a blast!
5. The Deliverables
Depending on the project, you'll
receive all deliverables 2-4 weeks
post shoot(s) through WeTransfer.
I have a creative studio located in Downtown Hoboken, NJ and I also shoot on location (so you can come to me, I can come to you, or we can location scout depending on the project).
It is a beautiful studio with large
windows, providing opportunity for natural lighting indoors. The studio is equipped with professional studio strobe and continuous lighting, so I have an array of creative lighting options depending on the looks we are going for. It is a two minute walk to the PATH, which makes commuting from NYC convenient.
I am right by a street that connects
to a cobblestone alleyway offering
different colors, textures, and depth.
It makes you feel as if you are in NYC without all the hassle of shooting in NYC (people traffic, vehicle traffic, loud noise).
My studio is stocked with cold water,
iced tea, snacks, and coffee (but I
am right next to a Starbucks and near
a couple coffee shops!).
Downtown Hoboken is a great place
to shoot around as well - we get the
NYC skyline, parks, and a variety of
different streets with colorful walls, tables and shops.
