Many users who have downloaded this product also show interest in personal branding photos. Lion and Cub specializes in capturing images that creatively and professionally tell your unique story, leaving a lasting impression that truly embodies your brand. More than a corporate headshot, personal branding imagery tells your story and allows potential clients to connect with you – and that is gold.



Case Studies

The Piano Man is Scot Finnie, a world-renowned pianist who’s business is making music. 

While his website needed plenty of sound  clips, it also needed images of him, tinkling the ivories, laughing, caught in the moment. 

To capture Scot and his incredible talent, we hired out space in Sydney’s Carriageworks, and rolled in a baby grand, a sharp suit, some sharper shoes and let Scot make his magic. 

Lion & Cub created images for his website, for galleries, profiles, social media posts and more, and while Scot’s expertise shines through, his love of what he does is what makes these shots sing.

"Working with Nikki was amazing. I needed a website refresh and to project an elite image for my international gigs. Her talent, vision and professionalism were remarkable and the images speak for themselves.”

Emily Simmons cares a-lot about mugs. Her ceramics work is rooted in nostalgia for her hometown in Nova Scotia and her identity as a windswept but unwavering maritimer. Her work evokes moody, storm-crushed seas while embodying a serenity and coziness, as if safeguarding against the elements

She reached out to Lion & Cub when she launched a brand and website for her ceramics, and the shots that we captured imbue both Emily and her work with the beauty and passion they deserve. 

“I reached out to Nikki when I was launching a brand and website for my ceramics. It was a wonderful experience to work with her on this project. She really understood the vision and worked to the brief that my web designer provided. Nikki organised two sessions: one to photograph me at the studio where I make ceramics, and a second to photograph my finished pieces in a beautiful studio space. The whole process was extremely creative, collaborative, and joyful. And the finished photos are gorgeous - I couldn't be happier with them. They really capture the vision that I had, and then some - they are more than what I'd hoped for. Nikki is such a great photographer to work with and I highly recommend her.”

Sally Cummins is the very well-put-together face behind Inner Style Queen, a self-confessed colour fanatic. 

Her mission is to inspire busy, working women to look good and feel more confident, by helping them to see the colours and styles that both empower them and present them in their full glory. 

When rolling out a new website and insta profile, Sally needed a swag of strong, effective imagery to support her brand.

“Nikki is a dynamic and professional photographer who knows how to direct a shoot and make it fun! I hired Nikki to take some photos of me as I needed some fresh content for my social media pages and website. I’m a colour stylist with an edgy vibe and Nikki helped me to capture the exact look I was after. We had the best day and I was delighted when there were too many great shots to choose from! I would absolutely recommend Nikki to anyone wanting some amazing photos for business or pleasure.”
