Looking for a personal brand photographer?
If you’re in business, then you’re also marketing and promoting your products and services. And you need photos to showcase those products and services. So if you’ve been doing the photos yourself, you might be wondering why hire a personal brand photographer?
And actually, I don’t recommend a brand photoshoot to every inquiry that comes into my business. Shocking, I know. But I’m here to recommend the best option for you and your business.
So you might be wondering how to know if you’re ready to hire a personal brand photographer. And if you even should.
If you’re a business and you’re also building a personal brand to back it up (I think you should!) then you are the perfect candidate for personal brand photography.
Personal brand photography encompasses photos that include headshots, lifestyle photos, tools of your trade, behind the scenes, flatlays, products, and more. These photos become assets in your business that you can use for marketing and promotion and everything in between.
However, if you’re just starting out in business, you’re probably not ready for a full blown brand photoshoot. There are some telltale signs to watch for if you want to know if you’re ready.
The biggest mistake I see business owners make when choosing a photographer for their business is that they hire anyone. They hire their friend the photographer who perhaps specializes in newborn photography. Or they hire a photographer who doesn’t understand branding, marketing, or business. Sometimes they think, “Oh it’s just photos, not that big of a deal.”
Brand photography is strategic and intentional. Photos are taken in order to attract the client’s ideal customer. They are not just “pretty photos” they serve a particular purpose whether it’s on a sales page, a headshot, a hero shot, and more.
When searching for a photographer, make sure to specifically look for “brand photographer near me” or “personal branding photographer near me”. Take the time to explore their website and portfolio: does their photographic style resonate with you? Do you believe their work aligns with your branding and content?
How do you decide who to hire? I recommend scheduling a discovery call with photographers you’re considering and getting a feel of the photographer’s style and personality. Choose the photographer who you vibe with best.
The ideal time to hire a personal brand photographer is under the following situations:
If you’re spending good money building your brand assets, you should also invest in professional photos too.
