Personal Branding Photography – What You Should Know

Personal Branding Photography – what is it? Why is it a buzz word in the industry? Why are people talking about personal branding photography?

Well, if you own a business, run a small business, are an entrepreneur, or want to start a business, there’s one thing you’ll have no matter what: a personal brand. The personal brand is YOU. While your business may have it’s own brand (such as with a franchise), you are the owner. You are the face of the company. You are the person that a customer or client connects with and chooses to purchase from.

The key differentiator between you and your competitor is…YOU. So having a strong personal brand and personal branding photos to go along with it, will help you and your business stand out.

What is Personal Branding Photography?

In the online space, we have approximately 7 seconds to make an impression. That’s not much time. With all of the “noise” of the Internet and social media, it can be tough to stand out. Personal branding photography serves as the foundation of your visual brand and your first impression. Personal brand photos represent your business brand. It’s the way to tell your story beyond just words.

People are visual and often skip over words, however, they will look at photos. Brand photographs are a way to explain who you are and what you do without saying a word. Branding portraits include lifestyle headshots, behind the scenes photos, photos of you working in your craft, your products, your services, and even your hobbies (if you want!).

Share your business story

Brand portraits allow you to share your business story in ways that are more impactful than just a paragraph on your website. You can share about your awards and accolades, how you serve your community, and how you’re making an impact through your business.

While it may not seem that important, sharing you business story can be a huge differentiating factor for a potential client looking at two businesses from the same industry. Personally, I’m always more drawn to a business that has more information about the people behind it. It immediately allows me to start building trust with them.

Why is Personal Brand Photography Important?

When you are a personal brand, connecting with your audience and ideals clients is key to a successful business. Your audience needs to get to know, like, and trust you before they can decide if they want to hire you for your services.

An easy way to begin to build trust is through strategic brand photos. Photos that show who you are, what you do, how you do it, and with whom will help you connect with your business prospects. By having a dialed in ideal client profile, you’ll know exactly who you are talking to and know what type of photos you’ll need for your website, marketing, and promotions.

Brand photos can speak volumes that words alone cannot convey. Strategic business photos highlight what you do in a way that a potential client can understand clearly. You want your photos to leave an impact on a potential customer so that you can increase your income!
