Tips on what to write on your photographer’s About Me page

When choosing a photographer, clients prioritize viewing the portfolio, reading the reviews, and reading the photographers “About Me Page.” That’s the sequence that was described by most of my clients. 

Your story published on your photo website’s “About Me” page is the invisible emotional connection that, along with your portfolio and other marketing strategies, can help clients understand whether you are the right choice for them.

photography about me what to write

At the start of my professional photography career, I was skeptical about the effectiveness of subtle promotion and creating emotional connections. However, through personal experiences, reading professional literature, and watching educational videos, I realized that the sales process begins long before a potential client reaches out. It made me understand the importance of effective communication and storytelling in attracting clients.

The story on my first photographer’s “About Me Page” was brief and to the point: “Welcome to my website! I’m Elena Sullivan, a professional wedding, family, and portrait photographer serving clients in St. Petersburg and its suburbs.” I obviously thought brevity was vital in conveying professionalism.

The second photographer’s “About Me Page” was more informative. However, it was filled with facts, lacking in warmth and personality.

While data is important, it lacks emotion. Selling art, whether it’s photography sessions or any other form of creative expression, goes beyond simply presenting a product or service. It involves infusing a personal touch into every aspect of the process. This personal touch sets apart one photography artist from another in the eyes of potential clients.

It serves as a platform for sharing my journey into photography, highlighting pivotal moments that shaped my career, discussing my sources of inspiration, and providing insight into the artistic world behind my photos.

Share your experiences

Don’t hesitate to share your story openly. Your experiences, struggles, and triumphs shape who you are as a photographer and person. When I wrote my article “How Curiosity Helped Me Overcome Fear And Start My Photo Business” I was initially apprehensive about discussing my fears with the public. It takes courage to confront your fears, and that courage grows from facing them head-on. However, I received many positive messages in response to the article. People appreciate authenticity and vulnerability. By sharing your story, you connect with your audience on a deeper level and inspire others who may be going through similar experiences. So, don’t hold back! Share your story, and you’ll soon see a positive outcome.

Add your portrait

Enhance your story with your professional portraits. A well-crafted portrait can convey more than a thousand words, capturing the essence of your journey and personality. Your professional photos serve as visual storytellers, offering viewers a glimpse into your world and inviting them to connect with you on a deeper level. By incorporating these portraits into your narrative, you add visual interest and enrich the storytelling experience, allowing your audience to see the person behind the words.
