Hi I’m Melinda.
Speakers, Authors and Thought Leaders come to me when they want to play a bigger game and are ready to connect with a wider audience through strong personal branding.
First impressions count and how the world sees you for the first time and every time after that is creating a story of you that becomes your personal brand.
If your visual assets don’t clearly communicate your message they won’t resonate with the right people and it will stunt your ability to level up and stand out from your competitors.
You put your passion and energy into your business and want to work with someone who can support you in sharing your message with the world.
I work with you as your partner in amplifying your best assets so you can make a bigger impact.
Whether it’s with personal brand portraits, video and production, keynote event video, event photography, video content creation or video showreels, I work with you to identify the best way to effectively communicate your individual style and increase your brand visibility.
My superpower is helping you to feel comfortable in front of the camera and ooze confidence so you can connect deeply with your audience.
Strong visual assets complement your content. My team also includes the best copywriters and content creators to support you in ensuring your personal brand is a true representation of your authentic self.
When I’m not working with my clients to help them amplify their impact you can find me relaxing with my family, watching movies or enjoying a nice book.
I can help you with:
Personal Brand Portraits
Lifestyle Photography & Editorial
Video Content, Strategy & Production
Event Photography &/or Video Coverage
Speaker & Media Kits
Authors Book Covers
Speaking Engagements & Keynote Events
Kind words from my clients:
Mel is so incredibly friendly, warm, and down to earth, she makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera, even if you really have no idea what you're doing, and quite nervous like I was.
The photos themselves are so stunning, I received so many to choose from and it's so hard to pick my favourite! The photography itself is so beautifully composed, but more than that, they really capture the essence of who I am, and what my business is about.
She really went above and beyond my expectations, and I have no hesitations in recommending her services to anyone who needs photography for their business.Nicky Oliver
Melinda Hird is the best in the business when it comes to video and branding portraits. There are a number of operators in the speaker world but I really think Melinda loves her clients genuinely and produces outstanding work. I love my branding shots and my showreel creates business for me every day.Lucy Bloom
Mel has that great ability to take a situation that many of us feel highly uncomfortable with and turn it into something of enduring value through high quality images and digital assets. Her pursuit of excellence, attention to detail and commitment to understanding who and what you are about is evident from the moment you meet with her. She's easy to work with, creative in her approach and consistently delivers exceptional value.Margot Anderson
'Totally professional and wonderfully creative' is how I'd best describe Melinda. The quality of her photography work is first-class and her showreels work wonders in our new virtual world. Best thing is that she's a wiz to work with, and so down to earth unlike others I've worked with in the past at conferences where I was speaking and attending as a delegate. Very happy to recommend Mel to others.Darren Finkelstein
Melinda is an extremely talented photographer and videographer. The work and collaboration I have done with her is impactful, professional and tells the story :)Aaron Whybrow
