6 reasons you need professional photos for your brand

Professional imagery is a crucial part of creating your brand for your business. While your product or service is the star, quality photos allow you to show off your company and what you and your team can do. After all, first impressions are everything, and you want to create the right first impression with potential customers.

Professional branding photos are an investment, but they’re worth every penny. Having a custom library of images gives you tons of options when you need a high-quality photo to promote your brand.


You will use them everywhere


Your website needs photos, of course, but do you realize how many other places professional branding photos will be the perfect fit? Quality photos on your social media profiles can lead to more engagement with potential clients. These images can also add visual interest to your emails and newsletters, press releases, webinars, e-courses, print ads, billboards (like this one we’ve created the photos for Mike Bass & Associates in Spokane, Washington) and any other content you create.


You will save time and money


Really, who doesn’t like saving time (and money)? With a professional branding session under your belt and high-quality images at your fingertips, you won’t have to worry about hustling to provide an image to a magazine or website when the opportunity arises.

When you’re nominated for Spokane Coeur d’Alene Living Magazines 30 Under 40 Awards or get a call from Forbes wanting to interview you, you’ll be ready! Instead of rushing to book and take brand photos—or taking your own images—you’ll have images on hand when you need them, a whole library of photos to choose from that make your business and you look incredibly professional.


You will make more money


Our clients who utilize their branding photos make more money, period. Their products and services are perceived as being more valuable, more professional and more desirable. Watch the above testimonial video to find out how Real Estate Agent Amy got a $450,000 listing because of the photo we created for her ad in a magazine.


Visuals are more effective than just words


People tend to react more strongly to images than to written content. That’s evident in the higher engagement videos and photos get on social media than posts with just text. High-quality photography adds a level of authenticity and professionalism to your brand that will encourage potential customers to spend more time checking out your website and social pages and allow you to better connect with visitors.


You want to show off your process


Whether you’re creating a product or offering a service, branding photography can be a great way to show off your process and give potential customers an inside look at your business. Images of your process can help clients feel like they know you and your business better, fostering trust and giving your company a more genuine and authentic appearance.


You want to invest in the future of your company


You want your business to grow and expand, and professional branding photography can help you to do just that. By working with a photographer that specializes in creating visual communications, you can determine how you want your company to appear and how you wish to be seen by others. Adding professional branding photos to your website and social media pages can help potential customers trust you more and present the right face to anyone who may be interested in what your business has to offer.

No matter what type of business you have, professional branding photos can elevate your company to the next level. From Facebook to your website to your newsletter emails, branding images can emphasize what makes your business unique and how you can bring your customers the absolute best product or service!
