Photography For Brands

Bonnie Gillis

With a decade worth of corporate experience in insurance and consulting, I finally decided to pursue my passion...

My great love is photography, but my passion for travel is a close second. Often my favorite projects are branding shoots in locales both exotic and luxurious.

Where there’s an opulent ambience to evoke, you don’t just need a photographer who travels–you need a travel photographer! No one brings the Tyrrhenian Sea or Gobi sands to life quite like a traveler with an adventure in her heart and a love of the poetry and elegance of distant lands.

 Hiring a professional photographer like Bonnie to style and direct a photoshoot for me was one of the best business decisions I've made. More than just a series of portraits, she crafted a comprehensive visual encapsulation of my brand that had previously been lacking. I now have visual assets that authentically convey who I am and what my business stands for.

You could choose any photographer. Here’s what sets me apart from the crowd: 

I have a supremely unruffled temperament. I organize meticulously and always have a plan C for when plan B falls through. 

I begin a shoot with the end product in mind while allowing space for organic spontaneity to emerge in the process.

I favor a ‘true color’ and ‘mind’s eye’ approach to convey the spirit of the subject in a way that rings true. 


My specialty when it comes to content is as follows, and you can expect a high standard of excellence, communication, and cooperation.

Q.  How do I book with you?

“Hi there, so glad to hear from you!” After you reach out via email or the link on the Contact page, I will be in touch within two business days to set up an initial consultation. From there, if we’re a good fit, we schedule a phone chat to establish goals, timeframe, preparations, schedule, and final product timelines. 

Q. What kinds of content do you deliver? 

I take an approach that blends art and marketing with an emphasis on the essence. When I’m making work to promote your brand or venue I focus on the essence of what you’re promoting to let the world see how irresistible it is. I especially love shooting hotel interiors and exteriors, with or without human subjects, to capture different auras at different times of day.

I offer a range of services in a variety of bundles, so I bid each job on a case by case basis. Once I have a good sense of what you’re looking for I will tailor a quote to include everything that you need in a clean, straightforward way. 

Q. What are your prices like?
