A business portrait safari

I’m delighted  to announce that next month I’ll be holding my very first portrait safari for female professionals.

Join me and a small supportive group of other female entrepreneurs and business owners as we safari through the stunning grounds of York’s Middlethorpe Hall, making pictures as we go.


Show your customers the real, smiley sparkly YOU

Customers have so much choice today. The internet delivers an almost overwhelming amount of choice  to us with every tap and click. How do we show a customer that we are the right fit for them, or ask them to pick us over a competitor?  The answer is by being openly, undeniably and magically YOU ! The you that no one else can be.  And that starts with showing people who we are, with beautiful imagery that draws in and enchants. Your ‘about’ page is key – and so are the images of you that you choose to share.

“felt like a relaxed walk around the wonderful grounds of Middlethorpe Hall. We stopped at places in the grounds which felt right for relaxed, yet professional shots”

Let’s make this fun together!

Spend the morning roaming the stunning walled gardens of Middlethorpe Hall working with me as I pick out the pretty light for your natural business portraits.

This group safari for women entrepreneurs is designed to build your confidence in front of the camera in a small, supportive and fun group of like minded women.

Please feel free to come alone, or bring a friend or colleague. Solo photo shoots can feel daunting but as a group we can make this fun, delivering natural images for your website.

We’ll safari for an hour or two around Middlethorpe Hall making pictures, before finishing with delicious tea and cake in the library or, if warm and sunny, outside on the terrace.

The Venue – Middlethorpe Hall

Middlethorpe Hall is the most beautiful and tranquil of settings. A William III country house, it has 20 acres of stunning gardens and parkland for us to discover. We’re in for a treat as we roam around the herb and fruit gardens, the lovely lavender scented walled garden, and along to the lake. At the end of our adventure, we’ll sit down together in  Middlethorpe’s sumptuous library room for well deserved tea and cake.

“Annemarie had me and my business colleagues at ease encouraging us to be ‘natural’ and get us at our best. It was fun, we laughed, and complimented one another on our shots and managed a little networking!”


You’ll leave the safari with some beautiful portraits of you for your website and social media, new found confidence in front of the camera, and some new friends from all the fabulous networking. There are just seven places available on this photoshoot to keep it small, friendly and enabling me to give each person lots of images to choose from.


Your investment includes an up to two hour group  photo shoot, an online gallery for selection, three retouched images and delicious tea and cake at Middlethorpe Hall.

“The best bit was chatting with the others and encouraging them if they were a bit shy.”


Q: What shall I wear?

A: Wear something that you would feel comfortable networking in

Q: There are three shots included, if I love the ones of me, can I purchase more?

A: Yes, absolutely. 

Q: If I need to cancel, can I have a refund?

A: Thanks for asking, the safari places are limited, so please only book if you know you can make the date. This keeps it fair to others who may have liked to book a place. I am happy for you to gift your place to a friend or colleague.
