5 Tips How To Hire A Brand Photographer: Oshawa_Toronto_Durham Region_Brand_Petra_King_Photography


In a sea of Photographers, how do you know who is right for you? There is so many things to consider when you are thinking about a Personal Branding shoot. Here are 5 tips to consider to make the process a little less daunting.

  1. Set a Budget: as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Not all photographers are equal. Do your research and save your pennies. It will be worth it!

  2. Research: that aside, just because someone has high end pricing that isn’t to say they are right for you. Fine someone who resonates with you and goes above and beyond to help YOU bring your vision to life. Look for the connection and trust. If you aren’t “feeling it” more along.

  3. Come Prepared: make a list of photographs you need done. Having a general idea of what you need photographed to help launch yourself forward is key.

  4. Hire: Book your photographer. Plan for your session and leave the rest up to the photographer. They should provide you with a guide or list of things to make your photoshoot go smoothly. Ask lots of questions and be honest. The more you know, the easier the process is for both parties.

  5. Post Shoot: Use your new content and images wisely. Plan your social media posts, create blog posts, update that website and share what makes YOU unique with your fresh new content. Most importantly…plan on booking another one for the next quarter or season. Planning ahead minimizes the stress and frustration of where do I go next? What do I need to share and how will your next client find you.

In addition to the few tips above, here is a quick download that you are welcome to use as a reminder of the things to consider when planning. Remember I of course want the very best for you too!

Enjoy and till next time!
