What is Brand Photography?
Brand photography is a suite of professional images that visually represents your business and fits with your visual identity through use of colours, fonts, graphics, products and more. These can include photographs of yourself, your team, your products, your process, your environment and any other things that make your business unique.
HOW CAN BRAND PHOTOGRAPHY HELP YOU?
Imagine having a stockpile of bespoke images just a mouse click away, ready to use across your website, social media, literature and marketing. Unique images that make a fantastic first impression, whilst confidently reflecting your brand, telling your story and building a personal connection before you’ve even met. No more editing photos on your phone or searching for stock images! Brand photography images are created entirely for you, to add professionalism and authenticity to your visual brand.
Benefits of having your own brand photography shoot include: brand recognition, time saving and helps build an audience that connects with your personal brand.
People say that “content is king”, but adding brand photography is definitely the cherry on the top! Did you know that viewers are more likely to read a post when there is an engaging photograph attached to it? (Facebook reported an average 37% increase in engagement). Eye catching brand photography is key to elevating your business to the next level.
WHAT KIND OF BRAND PHOTOGRAPHY DO YOU NEED?
