SHOW YOUR AUDIENCE THE REAL YOU WITH A BESPOKE PERSONAL BRANDING PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION
WHAT IS PERSONAL BRANDING
It takes a certain kind of someone to start their own business. You see, do and achieve what others only daydream about. But you know that to stand out, to really bring your dream to life, you need to be genuine and you need to tell your story.
People buy from those they connect and identify with, that they know and trust. As a business owner, they need to see you, to know you, to be able to engage with you.
And what better way to do that than with a portfolio of beautiful, expressive images that reflect who you are, what you do and what you're trying to achieve?
WHY YOU SHOULD INVEST IN PERSONAL BRANDING PHOTOGRAPHY
You've got a camera, or at least a really good smart phone, right? So do you really need a personal branding shoot by a professional branding photographer? Yes. Because the images you use on your website or social media channels tell a story. Make sure that story is being told the way you want. From composition, to light and tonality, from the little details to focal points. There is a lot to consider.
So when those selfies or pics you took on your phone just aren't doing you and your story justice anymore, a personal branding photoshoot could be just what you need. From natural headshot photography, to images of you doing your thing, perhaps your workspace or shop, your products, the possibilities are endless. You'll have a set of images that will help you and your business stand out from the crowd.
WHAT CAN YOU USE YOUR BRANDING IMAGES FOR?
You can use the images from your personal branding photo shoot in any number of ways, including:
Website / online shopfront
Social media posts
Social media profile photos
Advertising / editorials
WHAT I DO AS A BRANDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I aim to capture natural, light-filled branding imagery and headshots. So rather than shoot in a studio, my sessions can take place somewhere that fits with your brand. Perhaps that is in your own home, or premises, or out and about somewhere. We can discuss options beforehand.
I come from a branding and marketing background, with more than a decade of experience under my belt. I have worked for huge multinationals and teeny tiny startups so I know how important it is to capture images that showcase you and your business and that connect and appeal to your audience.
If that sounds good to you, then let's chat...
PERSONAL BRANDING OPTIONS
I offer a couple of different options for your business. You can book a full personal branding session during which we'll get some fresh, natural headshots as well as some images that capture the essence of you and your business. Photos of you at work, your products or premises, the tools you use. Whatever it is that will bring your story to life. I also offer headshot and product photography sessions too.
Whichever personal branding or headshot photography session you choose, you'll get each image in full glorious colour and in beautiful black and white.
If you need something else, please get in touch and we can tailor a plan to suit you and your business.
So where will my session be?
As a personal branding photographer I cover areas in Surrey, Sussex and Kent. Personal branding sessions can take place wherever you like. Perhaps your own home or garden, an outdoor location near you, or if you have premises we can do it there. Wherever works best for you and your brand. If you need help choosing somewhere, just let me know.
What should I wear?
This bit stresses most people out a little! After you've booked I will send you some information on what you should wear. In the meantime you can check out my boards on Pinterest for some ideas. But I would generally advise you to have a couple of outfits that you feel comfortable in, that feel like you.
What if the weather is rubbish?
Well, we are in England so let's face it, that's a very real possibility! Blue skies and whispy clouds are of course lovely, but don't be put off by thicker cloud cover. Skies like these can make your photos really atmospheric. Whatever Mother Nature has in store for us, if we're shooting outside we can take a call the day before. If necessary we'll just reschedule for another time that's convenient for you.
How long will the session last?
Depending on which package you choose, your session will either be 1 hour for a mini session, or 2 hours for a full session. But I try not to get too hung up on time. If it take a little more or less time, then so be it.
What happens after?
I will go home and spend some time choosing the best photos to tell your story. When they are ready you will receive an online gallery where you can download your images. This will typically take around 2 weeks.
What does my package include?
Your package includes digital images only. How many you get depends on which package you choose. If you have chosen the full package, not only will you get more images owing to the longer session time, but you will get a square version, Insta-style.
What do I need to do before the session?
We'll have a chat beforehand so I can get a good idea of your brand and what you're looking to achieve. I'd recommend creating a board on Pinterest filled with the types of images you llke.
