Photography Offer for our members!

From our friends over in Knowle West Media Centre we had this offer in

“As a female photographer I know how does it feel to have less opportunities and would like to support other female entrepreneurs in Bristol.

I specialise in Personal Brand Photography which is a taylor-made service that provides outstanding image content for business owners. My photography tells the story of people’s business and helps to create a lasting relationship with their online audience. It is more than just a simple headshot front of a white background.

Please take a look at my website. or on my Instagram @ibipersonalbrandphotogrphy

My offer is a 50% discount for most of my packages and is for two female entrepreneurs from a minority ethnic background. The offer will end at the end of January 2020.”
