Simply Holistic – York commercial photography for a massage therapist



Tucked away, up in a peaceful attic space off Holgate Road in York you’ll find the The Loft; the home of Simply Holistic.  Joe from Calm Works is a highly experienced Massage Therapist and also offers Mindfulness and Meditation practices.

Joe commissioned me to take a series of commercial images for use on her website, social media profiles and marketing literature.  Using my documentary eye I quietly observed Joe giving treatments to two clients to showcase both the ‘No Hands’ and Thai massage techniques that she offers.  The NO HANDS© Massage was fascinating to observe and lots more information can be found on Joe’s website about the experience and benefits of the approach.  I also captured some images of the unique space that Joe works in.  The ambient light was great to work with and I love the mix of colour and black & white images in the portfolio.  We ended the session with a series of fresh portraits of Joe.  I can’t underline enough the importance of an authentic headshot on your website and social media profiles.  It helps gives potential and existing clients a real sense of personal service and trust and really does help you stand out in the crowd.

If you are in need of some serious R&R then The Loft is highly recommended.

We created a realistic client experience to photograph including a pre-treatment consultation to ensure the individual gets the best from their massage.

Black and white works so well in these wider view images and demonstrates the space and light of The Loft.
