MY JOURNEY TO BECOMING A BRAND STYLIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER
Hi, I’m Nikki – founder and passionate creative behind Revised Edition, the brand stylist and photographer responsible for creative styling and photography for brands across New Zealand and beyond.
My journey to Revised Edition and becoming a brand stylist began before I even realised it. I’ve worked in hospitality, both as a chef and doing front of house, where I fuelled my passion for food, wine, and dining. I’ve up-cycled furniture, where I learned how to take something that didn’t stand out and turn it into something beautiful that people wanted to take home. I’ve gained a Diploma in Interior Design from the Interior Design Institute of New Zealand, and I’ve created my own social media and branded content and know just how time consuming it can be.
Understanding the time commitment and skills required to create quality, eye-catching branded content, I decided I wanted to use my skills to help other businesses who were struggling in these areas, and so Revised Edition was born.
Since then, I’ve had the privilege of working with some truly awesome people and brands, have amassed a treasure trove of props, and have created some beautiful content (if I do say so myself, but you be the judge – head to the gallery to check out my work).
Creative brand styling is making things look pretty, but it’s also a lot more than that. It’s creating a style and look that echoes your brand’s personality and tells its story; one that is recognisable to your audience; one that invites and inspires people to be a part of your business, whether that’s through buying your product, following your journey, or liking your photos on social media.
Here at Revised Edition, I’m as passionate as ever about using my experience and expertise as a brand stylist and photographer to visually tell your brand’s story, whatever that product or service might be – and I offer a full range of creative brand styling services to achieve that (check them out here).
I’m based in Wellington, but if you’re not, that’s no worries. Simply send your products and wait for the beautiful images to come your way. So, if you want to make some magic, get in touch and let’s discuss how I can make it happen.
“Nikki and Revised Edition have been an invaluable partner for our business significantly elevating the quality of our imagery for collateral and social media. We often give a rough outline of a campaign and Nikki delivers on the look and feel that we’re after. Nikki is very easy to work with, responsive, and completes high quality work at a cost-effective rate. We highly recommend Revised Edition.“
