Personal Branding Photography
The term “Personal Branding” was only coined as a phrase in an article by brand guru Tom Peters in 1997. And Personal Branding Photography as a concept, is even newer than that.
In this article I’m going to explain why personal branding photography is important for your business. But first, it is important to understand what it is and what it means.
1. What is Personal Branding Photography?
In a nut shell, it is imagery that showcases you; it is photography that shines a light on your personality, that visually represents your unique business and that successfully shows your potential customers who YOU are. It’s far more than just headshots (which are obviously important too!) and a few pictures of you at your desk; personal branding photography will capture the essence of your business and display it proudly for all to see.
Now that we know what personal branding photography is, let’s understand why it is important for your business and what it can do for you.
2. Personal Branding Photography Builds Credibility and Trust
People buy from people; and let’s face it, you are those people behind your brand! Your ideal clients want to trust your business and they want to get to know and like it. Imagery that showcases who you are and what you do builds that trust and paves the way for those potential clients to know and like your business and, ultimately, purchase from you.
3. Personal Branding Photography Connects You With Your Ideal Client
Communicating your passion and your spirit to your clients can potentially be a difficult thing to achieve. Words only do half the job; it’s so important to connect with your clients visually as well. So this is where personal branding photography plays a huge part. It allows potential clients to understand your values and why you do what you do, and – some might argue – more importantly, why you love doing it.
4. Personal Branding Photography Helps You Stand Out From The Crowd
You are your own USP. Don’t be afraid to show the world who you are! Your personal branding photos will inspire your customers and draw your ideal clients to you. They will authentically show those clients what your business is about and what it stands for.
5. Personal Branding Photography Allows You To Consistently Show Up
If you often struggle to come up with new and original visuals to post to your socials, then this is exactly what Personal Branding Photography can help you with. Imagine having a huge bank of pictures to pull from whenever you need. Imagine being able to consistently show up on your social channels and thus market your business effectively.

Your business is your passion; the baby in which you have invested your time, energy and love to make your dream come true. And you want your business to grow and flourish. So this is why Personal Branding Photography is important for your business. It puts the spotlight on you and your business. Thus showing your ideal clients why they can trust you to provide the best service possible.
