What is branding photography?

Personal branding photography is a type of photography that focuses on capturing images of individuals to help them establish and promote their personal brand. In today’s world everyone has a personal brand. It is often used by professionals, artists, coaches, entrepreneurs, influencers, and public figures to convey their personality, values, and unique qualities to their target audience.

I don’t put a strict limit on the number of shots I take per look, and generally shoot each look until I feel we’ve got it covered. I will be directing coaching and helping you pose throughout your entire process.

What is the difference between a headshot and portrait photoshoot?

  • Headshot: A headshot is a specific type of portrait that primarily focuses on the person’s face, head, and shoulders. Headshots are typically used for professional purposes, such as business profiles, resumes, acting portfolios, and social media profiles. They are meant to showcase a person’s appearance and personality in a clear and straightforward manner.
  • Portrait: A portrait, on the other hand, is a more comprehensive representation of a person. While it may include close-up shots of the face, it can also encompass a wider range of poses, settings, and expressions. Portraits aim to capture the subject’s personality, character, and style, and they may be used for various purposes, including personal enjoyment, artistic expression, family records, or storytelling.



  • Headshot: Headshots are typically tightly framed around the person’s face and shoulders. The background is often plain or neutral to ensure the focus remains on the subject’s features.
  • Portrait: Portraits can vary in composition, including full-body shots, three-quarter shots, or close-ups of the face. The background and framing are more flexible and can be tailored to the photographer’s artistic vision or the client’s preferences.



  • Headshot: Headshots often follow a clean and minimalist style, emphasizing clarity, sharpness, and the subject’s professional appearance. Lighting is usually even and flattering, with minimal dramatic effects.
  • Portrait: Portraits can encompass a broader range of styles, from classic and formal to creative and artistic. The style may depend on the photographer’s artistic approach and the subject’s desires. Lighting and composition can be more dynamic and expressive in portraits.
