Types of Branding Photos

When it comes to the types of branding photos to use, it’s important to capture your essence and what makes you unique. This will help you attract new customers and grow your business.

It’s recommended to have a variety of photos that showcase you in action, working with clients, creating products, and demonstrating how your products are used. These photos should capture the emotion that people will feel after engaging with you. 

Having a range of branding photos will give you a diverse portfolio for your marketing needs. The types of photos you should have will depend on your particular business and where you plan to use them.

Here are some examples of different types of branding photos:

  • Headshots – A good, professional photo can be used almost anywhere in marketing, including on a business card, in social media, in an email signature, in a newsletter, in an advertising postcard, in a mailer, and so much more.
  • Lifestyle photos – This is where your brand’s personality shines. Lifestyle photos can get so creative and personal, showing consumers not only how they can use your products, but also how your brand can make them feel. Great lifestyle photos build an emotional connection with your audience.
  • Product photos – High-quality images make your products stand out. Flat lays are ideal for showcasing product details and maintaining focus.
  • Behind-the-scenes photos – Give your audience a glimpse into the inner workings of your business. These informal “candids” typically make you more relatable.
  • Action photos – Capture yourself in action, doing what you do best, whether that be interacting with a client, making your products, or closing a deal.
  • Location photos – Show off your storefront or office, sharing where you work and what you do there.
  • Personal photos – Personal photos highlight your personality, giving your audience a sense of who you are. Take pictures doing what you love to do when you aren’t working.

Final Thoughts

To get the best results, find an experienced photographer who can help you brainstorm and plan your branding photos. By investing in high-quality images, you will strengthen your brand and attract new customers.
