You may have seen the term “Personal Brand Photography” floating around the internet lately. But what is it exactly? What does it do and why would anyone get personal brand photos done? 

Let’s dive into this topic together and get super clear about what it is and what it can do for you.

Personal brand photography is a specific style of photography focused on capturing your unique personality, style, and values. It’s often used by entrepreneurs, influencers, professionals, and anyone looking to establish and promote their personal brand or online presence. It is designed to build authentic connection with the brand’s audience with the intention of building trust.


There are several key points of difference that define personal brand photography. They are:


  1. Storytelling: Personal brand photographers work with their clients to tell a visual story that reflects the brand’s values and message. This can include capturing behind-the-scenes moments, daily routines, and the essence of the individual’s life or business.


  1. Authenticity: The goal of personal brand photography is to capture authentic moments and emotions, showcasing the real personality of the individual. This authenticity helps build trust and connection with the audience.


  1. Consistency: Personal brand photography often maintains a consistent visual style or theme to ensure that the images align with the brand’s overall message and aesthetics.


  1. Versatility: The images captured in a personal brand photo shoot can be used across various platforms and marketing materials, including websites, social media profiles, promotional materials, and more.


  1. Branding Elements: Photographers may work with clients to incorporate branding elements such as logos, colors, and specific themes into the photos to reinforce the brand identity.


  1. Professionalism: Personal brand photographers use their expertise to create high-quality images that reflect the individual’s or brand’s professionalism and competence.


  1. Planning and Collaboration: Planning is a crucial part of personal brand photography, involving collaboration between the photographer and the client to discuss goals, concepts, locations, outfits, and any specific shots or ideas.


With the rise of AI it’s now more important than ever to establish your personal brand so that you can claim your corner of the internet as a real live human. It may sound crazy to say that but here we are. People want to know that you are who you say you are. If you’re already doing what you say you’re doing, personal brand photography is a natural and seamless integration into your brand strategy.
