Many of us are guilty of not being present visually on our websites and social media pages. However, in today’s digital world, it is crucial to create a visual connection with your online audience. Whether you’re in the business of selling products or services or are hunting for your next dream job opportunity, having a professional self-portrait can help boost your success.

Join professional photographer, Marina Ivanovic, in this interactive workshop to learn how to take captivating branding pictures of yourself that lend themselves to current social media expectations.

As an experienced portrait photographer, Marina’s knowledge and passion for fashion is blended with skills in makeup artistry, to give every woman, regardless of age, size or confidence, the experience of feeling and looking amazing in photos.

This workshop will support you to capture who you are as an ambassador of your personal and/or professional brand and will explore:

  • What your headshot says about you
  • How to take the best professional photos of yourself and save money
  • Styling tips for brand photography

One lucky attendee will take home a copy of Marina’s book  ‘You Can Be Your Own Stylist’.

This workshop is free to attend for women aged over 16 years who have a connection to the City of Melton. It is being offered by the Multicultural Association of Community Empowerment (MACE) as part of their Women in Business and Entrepreneurship Project and is proudly supported by the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing ‘Investing in Women Grassroots Grants Program’.

Notice of road works affecting travel to Taylors Hill Youth & Community Centre.

Melton City Council is duplicating Hume Drive between Gourlay Road and Calder Park Drive by increasing the existing two lanes to four lanes with a new road median. Works have now commenced and are expected to conclude early in 2025.

Works will take place Monday to Friday between 7am and 5pm and Saturday between 7am and 3:30pm. During the works, our intention is to keep the road open to traffic but there may be periods of time where there are reduced lanes and delays occur. We encourage road users to allow extra travel time and to use alternative routes if possible.
