Want to BOOK MORE CLIENTS? Get them to fall in love with your client experience ๐˜‰๐˜Œ๐˜๐˜–๐˜™๐˜Œ they even hire you. You want them to be so excited, they can’t wait to work with you!

How the heck do we do that? It all starts with creating the ultimate brand presence. We need to showcase that client experience with a collection of brand images. Not just our portfolio (which is the go-to for most photographers) but a visual display so that our potential client can see themselves in that experience.

must haves for the ultimate brand presence

Creating a brand image and presence

 2. ๐๐ซ๐š๐ง๐๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ˆ๐ฆ๐š๐ ๐ž๐ฌ: This is your opportunity to show off who you truly are. Donโ€™t stop at just your bio pics! Get action shots of you shooting, you in your studio, you with a laptop, you setting up props, laughing, etc. Add as much personality in these images as possible. This is how someone who hasn’t met you will feel you’re relatable. And donโ€™t forget to be YOU in these images. Sure, take a few professional headshots with a blazer and your camera in hand. But if you live in leggings and your fave college sweatshirt, take a few shots in what youโ€™re most comfortable in.

These should capture all of your samples, client orders, canvases hanging on the wall, your client browsing an album, etc. If you sell products, you must show what you sell. Without these images, nobody will know you have anything to offer other than a shot and digital images.

This category includes images of your client getting their makeup and hair done, trying outfits on in the style closet, posing for images, opening up her products, etc.

So tell me, how many out of those five categories do YOU have for your brand presence? Do you have some shooting to do?!?
