Getting you from behind your business to in front of your brand.
If you look at the websites or social media of any household brand, the first thing that will jump out at you is the quality of their brand photography. From photos to videos, the imagery that they publish across their pages grabs their audience and pulls them in, enticing them with the products & services they have to offer.
You can’t throw a stick in the air without it landing on someone offering the same thing…
Standing out from the crowd is hard work; it can sometimes feel impossible to be seen or heard above the competition.
A Personal Brand Photography Session with me gives your business the opportunity to create a set of photographs and videos that tell your story to your potential clients and stand out.
Whether you want to introduce them to the “behind the scenes” of your company, show them your manufacturing process, or show them why you’re the best choice for their custom, a branding photography session will give you the visual content your business needs to tell its story.
A brand photography session gives you the tools to connect with and communicate with your customers and potential customers, allowing a visual story to unfold in front of them.
After all, a good story is always more than words; it’s about sparking the imagination through imagery.
Make a positive impact in the front of your customer’s mind before someone else does!
There’s the opportunity to entice new customers to engage with you. While the saying goes “you should never judge a book by its cover”, a beautiful cover will always tempt you to flick through some pages to learn more. A professional set of brand images and videos will encourage people to browse. and start the engagement process.
Your brand is how your values are viewed by others and the promise of what your clients receive when they come to you. Your service and story are what makes you unique and gives your audience the confidence in why they should trust your business over someone else’s. A consistent and engaging brand builds loyalty.
Deciding to use brand photography also creates consistency across all your platforms and client touchpoints, from your website and printed media all the way through to your social media feeds. Consistent high quality on-brand visual content ensures that your brand’s identity is compatible with the rest of your message.
“I have been able to use the pictures for my website to create my business story, as well as creating new content and posts for social media.”
The Consumer Content Report (Stackla) found that 86% of consumers said that authenticity is important when deciding what brands they like and support. In the same study, it was found that 57% of consumers also think that less than half of brands create content that resonates as authentic.
On average it can take 5-7 impressions for a potential client to remember your brand. With 81% of global brands citing that communicating a consistent brand message across multiple marketing touchpoints is a top priority for any organisation.
A study showed that 67% of online customers rated high-quality images as being very important to their purchase decisions. and 60% say they’re more likely to consider contacting a business that has visual content show up in local search results.

Here are a few frequently asked questions to get you started with brand photography and how you can benefit from having a strong visual presence.
I think it is probably likely that you all know what photography is so let’s start with Brand.
There are many different definitions and opinions of what a “Brand” is however this is what I think.
From individuals (people buy people), small businesses to large organisations, branding plays an essential role. Here are just a few examples of who can benefit from high quality branded content.
When you work with me I supply all the images with a full & perpetual commercial license to use them as you wish typically;
A branding photography session isn’t just about creating still images, I can also create videos for you.
Using videos across your website and social media can have a significant impact on the interaction you receive from your audience and provides a smooth and professional way of sharing your company story. Social media posts that contain a video element gain more reach and, where the video is embedded on your website, encourage visitors to stay longer.
Additionally, it can also improve the accessibility of your brand, ensuring that those who are visually or hearing impaired can still access your message.
The beauty of digital over film is that I can take a lot more shots than you will need; we can spend more time being creative and working on telling your story and spending time setting up something specific that fits with your brand values.
There will also be shots where someone has blinked or some other distraction.
I sort through all the photographs taken and delete any rejects and duplicates; then present you with the very best of what you need!
There may be plenty of others that provide the same product or services, as you so there’s no one size that fits all package because your brand is unique to you.
With that in mind, your investment should be based on your specific circumstances and goals, so I’ll work with you to build a personalised & cost-effective package.
Quotes are based on the time needed to create the content (session time, post-processing) and can be in the form of half-day sessions (starting at £720), full-day sessions or hourly, according to your specifications.
Get in touch for a no-obligation chat and we can discuss what you’re looking to achieve.
A subscription model is whereby you can make regular payments for future shoots. For example, you pay a monthly fee that gives you 4 sessions (1 per quarter) a year. This would suit you if required regular updates to your brand images. You also get the added benefit of working with the same photographer to keep the brand consistent, as well as, spreading the investment over time rather than paying for individual sessions each time.
If this is something you’d be interested in please get in touch.
