When we take our own brand photos, they might not always look as sleek and stylish as those taken by a professional photographer. Why is that? Well, one reason is that a professional brand photographer should always consider the props and accessories that set the scene of your photos. It’s not just turning up and taking a photo of you – brand photography is fully planned and designed to attract and appeal to your ideal client.
Obviously a lot of the props and accessories we use will be dependent on your business, brand and personality, but here’s 6 ideas to get you started:
- Flowers and vase
- Notepad and pen
- Food and drink
Now, don’t fall into the trap of just choosing ones you like, or using all of them – be purposeful when making your choices. The props and accessories you use should align with your branding, including colours, style, and functionality.
When working with female entrepreneurs and business owners, I guide my clients throughout this process, ensuring their resulting photographs are sleek, intentional, and completely on-brand.
