Personal Branding Photographer, Sumiko Eyears
I love helping business owners to elevate their personal branding to the next level by showing the best version of themselves with my photography

Hi, I am Sumiko Eyears, a professional personal branding photographer at Personal Branding Studio. I empower camera-shy businesspeople to find confidence, so they represent their business with professionalism, authenticity, and consistency.

I have worked in a range of industries in Japan and Australia and understand different cultures and values. Before becoming a professional photographer, I gained extensive experience in graphic and web design. This helps me visualise how your images can be used for various purposes with the best possible formats for both print and digital marketing materials.

Client’s Review 5 Star

“I wish I could give her more than just a recommendation!
The time, dedication, care and thought that went into every one of my photos, was second to none.
And she is just the sweetest person who I felt very comfortable to open up with.
This makes all the difference when doing a photo shoot and I’ve done many over the years.
As a TV Show host and magazine and book publisher, how I’m captured visually makes all the difference. I didn’t want a cold headshot corporate shoot, I wanted someone to capture me in my home so the photos are relaxed, happy and will appeal to my target audience of women.
Sumi did an amazing job and I highly recommend her. As long as she still has time to do two shoots a year for me, you can use her too!”
