Headshots or Personal Brand Photography? Which one tells your story best?

When it comes to creating a professional online presence, it’s important to have high-quality photos.

But what kind of photos should you choose? Headshots or Personal Brand photography?

Both types of photography have their benefits, but they serve different purposes.

Let’s learn about them.

What is a Headshot?

Headshots are typically close-up portraits that focus on the face. They aim to capture a person’s physical features, expressions, and personality in a clear and straightforward manner.

What is a Personal Brand photography?

Personal branding photography takes a broader approach. It’s about telling a comprehensive visual story about you, your business and your personality.

This style involves capturing you in various settings, engaging in activities that reflect your identity. It goes beyond the face. It can include photographs of you, your team, your products and/or service, your processes, your environments, your life and details that uniquely tell the story of your brand.

So, which one is right for you?

If you need to showcase yourself as an individual, headshot is the best option for you. These photos are commonly used in corporate settings, on LinkedIn profiles, for actor portfolios, or on websites to showcase team members.

But, if you want to tell a deeper story about yourself and your brand, it is when brand photography shines. If you’re an entrepreneur, artist, or influencer, this style can help convey your values, interests, and lifestyle. It’s also excellent if you are seeking to establish a more personal connection with your audience, as it allows viewers to glimpse into your world.

Personal brand photography is much more about story-telling. A bit like a wedding photographer tells the story of the day, not just the ceremony. Branding photography tells the story showing not only the business’s services or products or the business owner, but images that show the feelings that the brand wants to portray.

Personal branding photography help you to:

  • Stand out from your competitors
  • Connect with your target audience on a deeper level
  • Build trust and credibility
  • Promote your products or services
  • Increase your visibility and reach
