Branding Photo Shoots

What is Personal Branding Photography?

Personal Branding Photography captures what you do every day that informs your prospective clients what it will be like to work with you. It captures you, your space, and your tools of the trade. It captures your personality, shows off your professionalism and work ethic, and displays your creativity.

Why Do You Need Personal Branding Photography?

Because your prospective client wants to see you! They don’t want to see your logo. They’re not interested in your stock photos, or your selfiess… a mobile phone’s portrait mode is simply not good enough. You need personal branding photography because branding is something that happens whether you want it to or not. The question is whether you have control of your brand message or not.

Washington DC is a competitive market for almost all types of business. A professional personal branding photography session helps YOU stand out from the pack.

What is the Difference Between Personal Branding and Regular Branding?

Personal Branding is all about YOU. Regular branding tends to revolve around a company and/or that company’s product. For example, Apple and the iPhone. With the exception of the largest global brands, most people prefer and trust people over brands.

Does your Personal Brand inspire trust and represent you authentically?

We help Washington DC area professionals with personal branding photography to do just that.

It all starts with a great head shot. Then we give your prospective clients a look into your world, one photo at a time.

What is Included in my Personal Branding Photo Session?

Your personal branding photography session includes your pre-shoot planning consultation. During your planning consultation, we will discuss your current brand logo, colors, fonts, workspace, and how to represent those in your imagery. We’ll discuss what your images will be used for: social media, your website, advertising materials, public appearances, or all of the above. From there, we’ll craft a mood board. Finally, we’ll design a shot list to ensure your shoot is organized, efficient, and true to your brand and vision.
Then the fun begins–it’s time to shoot!
