    Why learn this from me?

    Hi! I'm Naomi Estment, personal branding photographer, videographer and trainer, passionate about helping women who are the face of their brand shine on camera and make it count. I'm most grateful that my website has formerly won the SA Best Photographic Blog award.

    I also co-own Outdoor Video & Photographic with my husband Dave, based near Stellenbosch in the beautiful Western Cape Winelands of South Africa. Since January 2001, we've been helping leading corporate, commercial and entrepreneurial clients power up their marketing via professional photography and videography. We're grateful that our website has also been voted SA Best Photographic Blog, as well as runner up twice.

    Believe me, I know the pain of playing small on camera. In fact, I didn't keep a single photo of myself before I turned 25, because of my severe squint, which you won't see now since I wear contact lenses and have learnt to control it as an adult. Then I met my husband, who helped me to accept my squint. He loves it, and says it makes me more human and lovable. Isn't that often the case with our flaws?

    My life has been completely transformed through photographing and filming hundreds of people since 2004. In the process of helping so many otherwise confident, successful women unleash their inner stars on camera, I've seen repeatedly how they've struggled with the same challenges. That experience led me to create this course, with a view to helping YOU shine on camera and become the star of your brand!

    What do participants say?

    This course is based on my 15+ years of pro photography and videography experience, as well as my live group workshops. See below what some participants say.
