Personal branding photography

I am a personal branding photographer based in Leeds, West Yorkshire but will travel further afield for your photography branding needs. 

Contact me via the form at the bottom of this page to arrange a no obligation natter about how I can work with you and your business to create images that show off the real you.

Let’s get social

Remember to follow my Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn accounts to keep up with my shenanigans.

What is personal branding photography?

You don’t need me to tell you that having the right images for your brand is important to really showcase who you are and what your business is about. Personal branding photography can help you tell the story of both you and your brand. People buy people, so along with images of your product or service you offer, a good selection of personal branding images will show off the person behind your business too. 

Planning your shoot properly will mean your images will compliment your brand and will attract your ideal client to your business. We plan what you would like to get from your shoot in advance and on the day itself I put you at ease to ensure the real you comes across on camera. 

Here are just some examples of the type of photos we can create:

  • Natural, informal headshots in your place of work, coffee shop or the great outdoors if you wish!
  • A selection of product photos
  • ‘Behind the scenes’ of you running your business

I also like to use a selection of props such as coffee cups, branded items you may have (business cards, pens etc), stationery items and books you like for your photos. 

You will receive your own personal library of images that you can use across all your communication channels in print, website and social media channels.

5 reasons why personal branding photographs might be for you

  1. You have a great brand but you are limited on time to get professional, polished images of your business. A two hour photo shoot will leave you with a catalogue of images you can use at your leisure for weeks or months to come. Saving you time and money in the long run. 
  2. You aren’t sure how to show your ideal client exactly what it is you do, or the photos you have already don’t really show your works at its best.
  3. You have recently had a rebrand and you need some new photos to match your new brand
  4. You want to show off the ‘real you’ on social media, but need some cracking pro photos that will show to show off to the world.
  5. You’re spending far too long each week taking photos of your products/selfies/ behind the scenes bits and bobs on your smart phone, but the quality isn’t as great as you would like.

About me

I am based in Horsforth, Leeds with my gorgeous son and lovely husband John, who is my rock. I have been telling stories through images since 2011. I would describe myself as a people photographer as I people are my favourite subjects! I have a background in weddings along side lifestyle photography. I feel this style is perfect for personal branding as it brings a natural, real feel to commercial photography.

FAQs

How do I go about booking a personal branding photo shoot?

Get in touch via my contact form (at the bottom of this page) to arrange a no obligation meeting either at my home office, or over the phone. We will chat all about your business and the sort of images you are looking for.

If you would like to go ahead with booking a shoot (yay!) I will send you across a questionnaire to get a clear idea of what you would like to get out of your shoot, where you like it to take place and a bit more about you and your brand.

I invoice you for 25% deposit on booking and your remaining balance is due one week ahead of your shoot.

What do I need to bring with me to the photo shoot?

What you bring with you all depends on what your business is all about, and also where you like your shoot to take place. If you make and sell things you might like to have photos of your products and perhaps behind the scenes style photos of you making your product. If you offer a service then photos of you with your laptop or relaxed with a coffee always make nice pics.

The use of props in your photos can really help making you feel a little more relaxed in front of the camera. Having something to hold, such as a pen or diary, can certainly be a handy tool in putting you at ease. Plus gorgeous stationery can look fab for your brand. Have a think about any branded items you have or pretty stationery you like to bring along.

Do you have any favourite books you would like to incorporate that represent your brand or are related to your expertise you could bring?

Finally, you may wish to bring some seasonal props. For example, your shoot may be in the middle of July, but you might fancy some photos taken in a Christmas jumper to roll out in December! 

Where should my photo shoot take place?

If you have an office/workshop/desk space in the spare room we set your shoot up there. Even the smallest space can be worked with to give you a great set of photos. If you pick a longer shoot we can use two or more locations to mix things up a little.

If you would prefer, we could arrange your shoot to be outdoors or perhaps your favourite coffee shop. Of course we would need to seek permission in advance with any commercial premises. Any fees for hiring out a commercial space would need to be covered by you.

What should I wear?

Go with what makes you feel comfortable, confident and represents you and your brand. You may wish to bring a couple of outfit changes. Remember you will receive a library of images that you use across your website and social media so variety is key.

How and when will I receive my photos?

You will have access to your own password protected online gallery. From here you can download high resolution images that are suitable for use across printed channels along with web resolution versions for use on your website and social media.

You will also receive a commercial use licence enabling you to use your images to promote your business and brand however you like.

Depending on my workload, I will email you your online gallery link within four weeks of your shoot.
