AS SEEN IN
Personal branding photography empowers every business owner by capturing their true essence and taking professional brand photos that are distinctive and immediately recognizable. And that becomes an advantage in the oversaturated market and never-ending run for more clients. Being seen and recognized extends the influence of a business’s message and increases trust. Speaking in public, publications in authoritative magazines and websites, regular social media postings, and brand photos that are aligned with the primary brand mission and style – are essential ingredients of a strong brand. If you don’t do it, how do you expect people to know about your business?
Atlanta branding photography is for everyone interested in building, growing, and expanding their personal brand:
Branding photos supports your brand idea, making it stronger with a comprehensive visual style aligned with all other marketing efforts. Your branding photos represent you and your business when you work, rest, sleep, enjoy family time, or have coffee with a friend. Once uploaded on your website or social media, printed in a magazine, or advertising brochure, they will stay there until you change them. They work for you 24 hours a day with no breaks or vacations. They are silent and powerful because vision is paramount in all human senses. We believe when we see. And your branding photos will help you build more trust and project your business mission before meeting your clients in person. Think of these photos as a warm visual: “Hello and welcome!”
My mission is to help you elevate your business to the next level by transforming its visual side.
Ready to create together?
One of the first question clients ask me is: “Where is the best place to do a branding photoshoot?” And as an experienced Atlanta branding photographer, I know of many great locations. Indoor or outdoors, I’ve got all information nicely packed and designed in videos and photos. Whether it’s a shiny street, park, or other urban location, I will share with you videos so that you can get a feeling of that area. It’s important to see the place before the day we schedule a branding photoshoot. You will have a realistic picture of the site, which will help you feel more comfortable and relaxed. It’s easier to feel that way when you are familiar with the surrounding, do you agree? Depending on the season, parks will look different
mainly because of the presence or absence of greenery and a wide range of flowers. And the street’s traffic dynamics vary from business week to weekend. As your Atlanta branding photographer, I will explain all the nuances of a photo shoot on the streets after the initial consultation. Do you want to take personal branding photos in your office or photo studio? Then season doesn’t matter. In spring and summer, we have many hours of the day with good natural light, which I love and consider the best light for lifestyle photos. However, at the end of fall and winter, we are limited on daylight, so as a good rule of thumb, it’s better to schedule your branding photoshoot somewhere between 10 AM – 5 PM.
Once you contact me, your Atlanta branding photographer, and we chat briefly, I will ask you to send me a photo of your office; this will help me envision all possible angles I will use during a photo session. If, for some reason, you can’t share a photo, I might ask you the following:
How many windows are there in your office?
Are they facing east or west?
Do you get enough sunlight?
What color scheme is dominant in your office?
What color is your furniture?
Do you have curtains or shields on the windows?
Do you believe in science? I do, especially in theories that have been proved by a multitude of research, processed data, and healthy debates. The power of visual information and the ability of our brain to process it 60000 faster than text is a well-known scientific fact. With vision being the most important of the human senses, it’s no wonder we perceive 80% of daily impressions through our eyes. Many personal interactions and other types of human activities rely on vision. When we see something or someone for the first time and like what we see, we tend to trust them more. So, all those facts prove the importance of personal branding imagery in establishing and promoting any business. Assuming that the first interaction people get with your business is online, your image portrayed in branding photos will be the initial touchpoint, thus creating an unforgettable first impression.
Branding photoshoot is an investment and will help you grow your business. And planning is an important second step. The more information you provide, the better your experience will be, and the more personalized photos your will receive. Successful personal branding photography in Atlanta and other cities include elements of personal style (outfits and accessories), business logo and other design details, color theme, body language, smile and open-minding attitude, and surroundings (indoor or outdoor). The best results are achieved when all those components are balanced to produce a meaningful image.
