PART 2: What’s in a Brand?—That By Which Any Other Brand Would be Jealous of Yours

What is Your Brand Anyway?

You’ve heard it a thousand times. You are your brand and your brand is you. But what does that mean?

Your brand is the story you want your business to tell. It’s the ongoing process of establishing a prescribed image of yourself to your audience, clients, etc. Establishing a strong brand is essential to creating a successful business. You want your work to be so recognizable and unique that someone seeing your work would know it’s yours from a mile away.

So What’s Step One?

Establish who you are as an artist.

Are you a romantic storyteller? Or do you shoot bold, iconic imagery? Maybe you’re more of a modern minimalist with fresh, clean edits. Is your photography daring and colorful? Whatever it is that you do best, your brand communicates who you are to potential clients before you actually say a word.

You’ll want to create a brand that speaks for itself, that is strong visually, and that really showcases who you are.

Aren’t sure what your brand style is? Lucky for you, we made a Brand Personality Quiz that you can take here that will help you determine your brand look and feel.

How Do I Create my Brand?

The best way to create a brand that stands out is to be cohesive across all of your touch points. This means your website, printed collateral, social media channels and any other points of communication all align flawlessly. You should use the same themes, color stories, fonts, and profile photos so you are easy to find and instantly recognizable.

Our photography brand templates were created with just this in mind. We wanted to make successful branding a snap for photographers, so even if you don’t know a thing about design, you can still have a strong visual identity that speaks to who you are as a photographer.
