Ok, What exactly is personal brand photography?

A personal brand photograph is an image or series of images that capture the essence of who you are and what you represent professionally. Unlike traditional headshots or portraits, personal brand photography goes beyond just showcasing your appearance. It aims to convey your personality, values, and unique selling points to your audience.

Here are some key components that make up a personal brand photograph:

1.    Just be you!: Authenticity is at the heart of personal branding. Your photographs should reflect your true self and what makes you unique. Embrace your quirks, your goofiness, and your unique style. After all, it's what sets you apart from the crowd.

2.    Tell your story: Your photographs should tell a story – your story. Show you’re your journey, what lights your fire, and the values that drive you. Whether you're a CEO, an artist, or a freelance belly dancer, your photos should speak volumes about who you are and what you're all about.

3.    Consistency is key:.  You wouldn't wear mismatched socks to a job interview, right? Well, your online presence should be just as put together as your attire. Keep your personal brand photography consistent across all your platforms – from LinkedIn, website to Instagram. It helps build brand recognition and keeps your personality on point.

4.    Professionalism as appropriate: You don’t need to look stiff or overly formal, but rather that your photographs should reflect the level of professionalism expected in your industry and what you want to convey. You’re your boss? People love to work with people they can relate you – again, be you!

5.    Flexibility : Your personal brand photos should be versatile enough to work for any occasion – whether you're posting a casual work selfie, have a press release or speaking engagement. Mix it up! Have some fun with different poses, locations, and outfits to keep things fresh and interesting.

Personal brand photography is a powerful tool. By capturing your true self, telling your story, maintaining consistency, and remaining flexible, personal brand photography can help you stand out in a crowd and attract the right opportunities for success. So, invest in quality personal brand photography today and take your brand to new heights!
