Vibrant business & brand photography

in Essex, Suffolk and beyond

Brand photography in Colchester - Carla Watkins, Visual Magic Maker

Photos! Totally essential for marketing whatever your size or business stage, but SO STRESSFUL to try and do yourself.

I’m here to take the stress away and let you focus on the thing you actually do (which very probably isn’t taking photos…)

What do you need, photography wise?

Spellbinding brand photography

Brand photography with soul, for colourful, magical weirdos in business.

Save time and faff, attract your most ideal clients, have a bespoke photo library to hand.

And show the hell up in your business and the world, as who you really are.

glorious headshot days

Fifteen minutes, two final images.

Perfect for you if you hate having your photo taken,
or just need one profile picture which reflects who you are.

Held on limited dates throughout the year both on location and at Studio 19.

Commercial & Editorial

Whatever your marketing photography needs,
event type, location or company size, I’ve got you covered.

From websites and
social media photos to business portraits, headshots and coverage of events & conferences, let’s see how I can help!

You can also hire my studio in Essex – which is especially ideal for product shots or if you release regular collections, as I only shoot products as part of a full brand shoot now 🙂

If you’re looking for photos for your business that truly capture who you are and what you do, and reflect how you show up in the world, I’m your woman.

Completely fed up with trying to feed the beast that is social media with constant new photos? I’m also your woman – imagine spending one afternoon with me and knowing you’ll have beautiful shots for the next few months lined up!

If you’re vibrant, multipassionate, have a secret addiction to Rich Tea biscuits and love cats, books and magic, then we’re going to get along famously.

What are you waiting for?!

No idea what you actually want

but know something about your business visuals needs to change? Let’s chat!


Looking for my fairytale, fantasy and mermaid photography and prints?

That magic has its own online home <3

TL:DR I'm a brand photographer for colourful, magical weirdos in business, proud multipod, multipotentialite mentor and podcast host. I am also a commercial photographer in Colchester and beyond, cover events and also editorial photography.

I am the founder of the Improper Job Collective for curious, magical oddballs at any stage of a business journey, and several times a year I hold Glorious Headshot Days so you can get a taster of working with me, and update your headshots in a heartbeat!

And if you're not in business, I shoot fantasy and mermaids along with conceptual art over on my sister site.
