How to choose the right photographer

First of all, it is important to pick the right photographer for YOU. Have a good look at their portfolio and make sure you like their photography style. When you find a photographer, who’s style you like, then it is always a good idea to have a chat over the phone. It is much easier this way to see if you want to work together and make sure you have a good feeling about him or her. A good branding photographer will also help you answer some important questions about you and your business. Some of the questions to ask yourself are below. These will help you to really get the photographs you need and that the pictures will reflect you and your business.

Questions to ask yourself before booking a brand photoshoot?

Before arranging a photoshoot, I think it is important that you think about a few questions. To help you, have a look at the following ones:

How would you describe your (art)work?

– What gives you inspiration for your (art)work? (e.g. places, objects etc?)

– Which activities or things do you enjoy?

– What story do you want to share with your photographs?

– Which feelings would you like to communicate?

– What are you planning to do with your photos? Is it for social media, your website, or printed materials?

Answering these questions can really help you understand what it is you want from the photoshoot and for which purpose you want to create them.

It is important to tell a story with the photographs you will have. A behind the scenes story about how you make your products or where you get your inspiration from. Ultimately you want images that are honest and show who you are and what you are passionate about.
