Photos That Tell Your Story

The times they are changing, and so should your photos.

You don’t have to go to New York City or Philadelphia for Personal Brand Photography. I’m located between the two cities, in Freehold, New Jersey. Yes, the one Bruce Springsteen sings about all the time. But if you need me in New York City or Philadelphia, I’m a short ride away! In fact, I can go anywhere in the world, if you need me there.

In today’s fast paced, digital world, people want to know who they are buying from. Who they are engaging with. Who they are consuming content from. You have a story needing to be told. Personal Brand Photography sessions tell that story.

  • What do you stand for?
  • Who are you as a person?
  • What is your expertise?

Are your images authentically you?  Are they consistent in your news feed? Or are they all over the place? Share who you are with a Personal Brand Photography session.

What is Personal Brand Photography?

Personal Brand Photography is a mixture of photojournalism, lifestyle and portraiture created to communicate your personal brand and make a meaningful connection with your audience. They are personalized for you, showing your character, your environment, and what it is to work with you.

  • Use the photos on your website
  • Use the photos on your social media profiles
  • Use the photos in your email marketing
  • Use the photos on sales and landing pages
  • Use the photos in your email signature
  • Use the photos in press releases
  • Use the photos in any other marketing materials

A brand is the set of expectations, memories, stories and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer's decision to choose one product or service over another.

Strengthen Your Brand

We live in a world where many people do what you do. At some point a standard headshot doesn’t do justice anymore.

Having built my own personal brand in the photography and WordPress industry, I know what is needed to stand out among the crowd.

That’s why I’m happy to offer personal brand photography as a way to help you build your brand.

Save 8 hours a week or more by having a personal brand photography session. Stop digging for photos to use or make on the spot, and instead grab them from your personal vault.

Connect With Your Audience

Audiences can tell when someone is not being real. They want to see what makes you who you are. What makes you unique and authentic.

You need to share your “you” on a regular basis, consistently.

Before my personal brand photography sessions, I dig into who you are as a person and entrepreneur to help shape the session. The goal is to share your story, and to deliver enough imagery to keep you going for months.

Connect with your clients on a personal level. Share your story with personal brand photography.

Personal Branding is all about your unique promise of value and what you bring to the table. It's (also) about getting your potential clients to choose you as the only solution to their problem.

Dr. Sarah David

It’s time to stop using outdated headshots and low quality selfies form your phone. Don’t have your spouse photograph your photos, unless he or she is a trained professional who gets it.

What if you had enough images for an entire year of brand consistency? Images that truly represent the authentic “you”.

What if the images you needed for the next 3 months was done in ONE DAY!

You can gain back all that wasted time you had making your own photos.

Let me be your personal photographer.

  • We will collaborate to come up with scenes that accentuate what you stand for and how you want to be seen.

Investing in high-quality, authentic photography is required if you want your visuals to play a crucial role in delivering the personality of your brand.

What's a Story?

As an entrepreneur, you have many stories to tell about the man or woman behind your brand. One might be that you work from home, in which case we will take photos of you at your computer. Another might be that you love to cook with your children in your downtime, so we’ll get photos of that too. Whatever your story is, I’m here to capture it in a way that shows the person behind your brand authentically.

What's a Commercial License?

Personal brand photography is different than traditional family or wedding photography. In order to use your images in marketing materials, you legally need a commercial license. However, as we retain the copyright, the commercial license does not allow you to sell your images as stock photography or in any other way.  Commercial use also means your images will not have watermarks on them and you do not have to credit me when you use them, although I do appreciate it when that happens.

Ready For Your Session?

Use Cases

I photograph entrepreneurs, doctors, photographers,  CEOs, authors and other public figures who want beautiful photos for their websites, social media, magazines and other projects. There are many uses cases for personal brand photography.

Having a few months or a years worth of beautiful photography that can be used for any occasion takes away some of your pressure, stress or worry. It also will free up time to focus on your family.

But How Much?

Personal brand photography sessions can be booked as one-time sessions, or quarterly.  Sessions start at $2,000 and can be customized to meet your needs.

In general, the investment in personal brand photography sessions pay themselves off rather quickly.

I make payments very easy. Cash, Check, PayPal, Apple Cash and Credit Card via Square are all payment options.

4 Reasons Why

  • More cost effective than hiring an employee
  • More effective than traditional marketing
  • Full commercial use for whatever you want
  • You never have to credit me...ever!

The way you build your business and the way you make real impact is by great storytelling.
