WHY I'LL BE SHOOTING MORE BRANDING SESSIONS & TIPS ON STARTING
After a very busy, but wonderful Wedding Season, I always enjoy this time, where I can reflect, organise and work on other projects that can now occupy my working space fully, since they’re less centred around the Summer months of the year and my diary is a littler quieter!
Following a blog post I recently wrote on “Why Personal Branding Photography Can Help your Business” (see here), I wanted to discuss why I absolutely love shooting Branding Sessions, and to also answer some “getting started questions” for those that have been asking.
Why I’ll be Shooting More Branding Sessions…
I Am Able to Work in a Way That Focuses on my Clients and Their Vision – Personal Branding photography is all about you and the celebration of you and your Business! It’s a real opportunity to be entirely original. I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to capture such talents, passions and creations. I can open the door to show people what it’s like to work with you, before they’ve even met you. The aim is to capture images that enable you to be visible, putting yourself at the forefront of your Business, and as I always say, people buy into the person, just as much as the Business itself. Building trust, interaction and connection with your audience in this way (through imagery) is key to attracting your ideal Clients and getting them to work with you.
I’m able to make it a worthwhile investment for my Clients (and hear/see the benefits!) - I’ve read that it only takes “1.5 seconds” for someone to judge a website, and according to "Hubspot", “The brain processes visual information 60,000 times faster than it does text” and in “1/10 of a second”, I don’t even know if I can wrap my brain around these figures! Personal Branding is of course an investment and it’s about finding your aesthetic, who you are and who you want to connect with. My job is turn that all into beautiful images that can articulate your story, celebrating your gifts and your message in the most glorious (and effective) way!
Tips on getting started with your own Personal Branding Session…
Understanding the Story you Want to Tell – Before even thinking about your Photographs, consider what your Brand is about, work out your ideal Client and what you want them to think, feel and do when they see the Photos or elements of your visual identity.
Think About the Basics – A small plan of the types of Photographs/imagery you’d like (I’ll do the rest, don’t worry), a location that you think will reflect and represent you/the Business most effectively, Team Members or specific Products you’ll need, etc! Having a little plan will help you invest your money/time most effectively.
