I’m an Edinburgh personal branding photographer, and I could bore you with my whole life story or Donna could talk about herself in the third person, but she won’t do that, she'll just show you who she is and how she can help you.

Hi, I'm Donna Green

I know what it's like balancing growing your small business with family life, and how you always wish there were more hours in the day. And how fitting everything in without pulling all nighters was actually possible. 

I absolutely get how you're desperate to have a dynamic oneline presence you can be proud of, one that will attract the right people to your business by showing you and what you do in the very best light. 

And don't even talk about feeding the social media beast, yep, the one which never sleeps. (So you've done "post 'n' pray" too? Where you just post anything you've got cause it's better than nothing? Don't be embarrassed. We've all done it.)

Find out more how a brand photographer like me can help your business!

I'm also ...

A highlander transplanted into the Central Belt. I’m from Kingussie, up in Inverness-shire, which always has been and always will be “home”. I collect profanities in Gaelic and have often been glad that most folk around me in Edinburgh don't understand them.

Insta-me!

The way I work

I don’t want to be treated just as a “service” by you, and I sure as heck will never treat you just as an invoice number.

I want to get to know who you are. You’re not just a "photo package" to me, and I’ll never be just about filling up my calendar with “shoots”.

Doing it my way, I get to create art, meet fascinating people, and have a rare old time doing it! And you? Well … I suspect you're looking for something special and not just ordinary, aren't you?

The important stuff!

GnR*

Guns n' Roses: Appetite for Destruction - this filthy, nasty, and utterly foul 1987 piece of dynamite is my favourite album in the entire universe. They're my favourite band in the entire universe.

I LOVE GnR and I'm so glad I got to see them way back in '93. Best. Concert. Ever. Nothing can top it for me. Nothing.


Still waiting for Axl's book, though ... Obviously I've read all the others! (Perhaps more than once ...)

Fictionaholic →

I grew up a bookworm, a complete fictionaholic.


We didn’t have a TV for a few years, and by the time I left school I felt like I’d travelled the world, lived in many different eras, and was convinced that had I been Cathy, I could have made Heathcliff into Perfect Husband Material.

Pipe bands  →

I played the pipes in competing pipe bands for a long time and even joined the Army Reserves as a piper.  (Yep, that's me in the middle row.)


I’d tell you more, but what happens in the beer tent stays in the beer tent.

Tuckerisms →

My favourite TV show EVER was “The Thick of It”.


If you’ve never heard of Malcolm Tucker, for pity’s sake don’t Google him if you’re at all faint-hearted.

This ice cream →

I don't like chocolate very much. Some people are deeply suspicious of this.


However, I'd be quite happy to murder and pillage for Mackies honeycomb.

Glenmorangie →

My favourite drink is 18 year old Glenmorangie. 


I keep trying other types of whisky in the hope they'll match up, but sadly they don't. 


The quest continues.

* If you really, truly, know what I mean by "where's Izzy?" when I look at the GnR picture, then you are my new best friend!

Even if you love my "important stuff" above too, I may still not be the right personal branding photographer for you!

You have to book the right photographer for your needs.  Are you and I a good fit?

Let's talk if ...

  • You understand the importance of an in-depth consultation meeting with me so we can plan out your photography in detail.
  • You want to work with someone who really understands you and your business and takes the time to figure out what you want from your investment in custom brand photography.
  • You'd like professional guidance on what to wear for your session so you look your best, and how to prepare in advance.
  • You have an understanding already of your brand and where you want to go with it. Even if it's still in progress, that's fine!
  • You know where Izzy went and why. 

Actually, let's not if ...

  • You want to just rock up on shoot day and get the job done as soon as possible. 
  • You just want a few quick snaps of what you look like right now and don't feel any need to look your best or express your brand messages in imagery. You don't really need a personal branding photographer for this, to be honest.
  • You're so new in business you haven't figured out whom you're tryng to appeal to, or what your photography should be trying to express. But I'd love to speak to you once you have a better idea of this stuff.
  • You thought they were better off without Izzy anyway. I'm sorry. I ... just. Can't.
  • When someone asks you "Slash or Buckethead", you say "Buckethead".
