‘The fear of changing genres’ with Portrait Photographer, Victoria Haydn
Victoria Haydn spent 10 years at the top of the Premier League photographing the stars of Manchester City Football Club. Learning visual marketing tricks from one of the biggest clubs in global sport, Victoria knew she could use her knowledge to help other businesses. Now she helps kick-ass business owners elevate their brands with personal branding photography.
Victoria’s experience has involved seamlessly switching genres from the male dominated sports world to the artistic maternity genre. Since then, Victoria has migrated to a new world of portraiture in Personal Brand photography where she is thriving. Switching genres can be daunting, but during this talk Victoria will take us on a journey of how she has navigated the changes and curveballs in her ever adapting career.
