Share this:

How you present your business dramatically impacts customers – current and potential. From a gorgeous storefront to an aesthetically pleasing website or social media presence, visuals matter.

Brand photography makes it possible to create the outstanding images your business needs to establish its identity online and in the real world. 

Brand photography can showcase everything from your services and products to your workspace and manufacturing process. Essentially, it captures everything that makes your company unique while making your business look its best. 

Whether your brand is edgy, playful, authoritative, or something in between, it is crucial to ensure your photography clearly communicated the identity of your brand. 

We’re lucky to live in Toronto – an artistic and cultural hub of Canada and to have access to so many talented photographers.

Corporate, Product or Personal Brand Photography: What’s the Difference?

What makes brand photography different from other types of photography you may use for your business? This question is often confusing because brand photography includes many of the same subjects used in other forms of photography – products, team members, and such. 

However, there are some key differences. For example, corporate photography typically focuses on creating those official-looking headshots you see on LinkedIn and company websites. Brand photography can still feature those working for a business, but it usually showcases its subjects in a much more personal and candid way.

When thinking about product photography, most of us think about the pictures of products on the sales page of a website. However, branding photography features products in a nature that is more cohesive to a brand’s aesthetic and personality.

Where Can You Use Brand Photography?

Brand photographs are an incredible marketing tool best used when communicating directly with customers, followers, investors, and more! The possibilities for incorporating brand photography in your marketing and advertising strategies are endless.

Brand photography can be used to keep your social media feed fresh, add content to your new website, and in many other ways, such as: 

  • Social media posts
  • Website pages like homepage, about and team pages
  • PowerPoint presentations like on the Team or Speaker slide
  • Webinar materials
  • Instagram profile pic
  • YouTube thumbnails
  • Podcast profile pic
  • LinkedIn profile pic
  • And much more!
