What is a Personal Branding Shoot.
Personal Branding is the Zeitgeisty phrase that gets banded about a lot, but what is it & why is it important?
It's basically you, your business, how you communicate online & IRL to your current & potential customers.
As more & more people research brands, indie businesses & products online it's essential to nail your personal branding photography & create a brilliant 1st impression. We all know that if you show your face on your socials you get more engagement... Which ultimately means more business.
““MUCH LIKE EATING, WE SHOP WITH OUR EYES. WE MAKE MANY PURCHASE DECISIONS BASED ON FIRST IMPRESSIONS. AND BUYING IS OFTEN AN EMOTIONAL DECISION MORE THAN A PRACTICAL ONE. THEREFORE, YOUR BRANDING IS ABOUT INFLUENCING THE WAY CONSUMERS THINK ABOUT YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS OR PRODUCT. AS A RESULT, PERSONAL BRANDING PHOTOGRAPHY CAN HAVE A HUGE IMPACT YOUR BUSINESS AND YOUR BOTTOM LINE.””
- 1 hour session at one of the ace venues below
- A pre shoot questionnaire to find out all about you, your brand and your plans for 2020.
- A great set of images (approx 10) fully edited & licensed for use in all your socials & marketing.
- Feel free to bring a costume change or 2 to get a great mix of shots.
- Props! We have all seen the Personal Branding shot on Insta of the subject holding a mug… why? Because it works & everyone loves a good brew. Think about what you surround yourself with for a great day at work & bring it along, pets & business partners* can be accommodated.
Newtons of Bury - Tuesday 21st Jan.
Newtons is Bury's... Actually I think Manchester's best co working space with a great range of spaces for your Personal Branding Mini Shoot from the light & airy co working desks to the funky cellar with an eclectic array of vintage furniture.
Their co working space is all on a drop in basis so why not hang round after your shoot to crack on with growing your business ... or just pretend to work & take advantage of some of the best toasties & hot Vimto in Bury.
Rawtenstall Market - Thursday 23rd Jan.
A proper Northern Market Hall, recently given a good spruce up to showcase great natural light, funky walls & spaces to shoot in and, northern weather permitting, some ace outdoor spots to work with.
It's home to some lovely makers & traders who always make us feel at home when I take over for a shoot. You can't not enjoy a shoot here... but they book up so look sharp if you want a spot
The Salvage House Collective - Friday 24th Jan.
The Salvage House Collective is the funkiest bunch of independent retailers, a barber & creatives based in a converted industrial unit in Whalley. They let me have the run of the place for the Personal Branding Mini Shoots which is brilliant & the images we have created in this space over the past year are some of my favourites.
Dubbed ‘The Consortium of Cool’ they also run a regular pop-up bar with music & street food. It’s the future of retail. It’s exciting, diverse, growing & stylish as f**k!
