Sally's Story

Can you tell I’m into stories? Well, let me tell you all about mine…

Sweetshute really began when I did a degree in film and TV, keen to learn the ropes of creating documentaries, studio-based shows and corporate videos.  

Of course, back then I had no idea I’d end up as a photographer and product stylist nestled here in McLaren Vale, just out of Adelaide, South Australia.

Cut to 20 years of hectic fun, working as a TV and video producer in London and Sydney. With every scene I created, I was honing my skills working with different subjects, light, composition, structure and perspective. Right from the start, I was always focused on my audience and how to move them and really connect so they could feel the heart of whatever piece I was producing.

And that’s what you get to benefit from today. I take you or your wonderful products (or both) and weave a magical story that tells of your brand, your business, what you stand for and how you & your services or your product can change your buyer’s life.

Oh, and the styling part of what I do? That’s pure, heart on my sleeve instinct. It’s also about emotion and making people feel like they’re having a sneak peek over my shoulder, like I’m letting them in on a private thought. My styling is liberal, dynamic and always with a hue of gentle, playful elegance.

Would you like to have a chat about how I can help tell your story through photos of you or your products? I’d love to get to know you and create something that’s just perfect for your business.

5 Ways Product Stories Can Connect You with Your Customers

by Sally Badnall | 03 May, 2019

Connecting with your customers through photographs requires a lot more effort than just taking random, unplanned or semi planned photos of your products.

You’ll get better results when you take the time to get to know your customer & how they interact with your products. Because you will then be able to create visual stories (photos) around your products that your customer can relate to, connect with and understand.
