Why is Brand Photography Important? | From a San Luis Obispo Photographer

Brand Photography that Highlights Your Business

It is now, more than ever, more than just a headshot or repeating someone else's branding ideas. It is about storytelling and authenticity within your brand. There is always a place for a polished professional headshot, but now is the time to invest in the authenticity of your business.

I recently took this approach with a client, Sarah Kirwan of Eye Level Communications, discussing the best way to approach her Brand Photography. We immediately knew that capturing her in a live event was going to bring the authenticity of her work.

Sarah creates a safe space for real, uncomfortable conversations that build and sustain more equitable workplaces focusing on disability and inclusion. Disability impacts more than 26% of the population, and for most workplaces is an afterthought. Sarah is one of those people that when she talks, you listen. It was an honor to be the storyteller behind the lens to share her energy, passion, and voice through her brand photography.

Check out some highlights throughout this blog from her session which was completed in 3-parts highlighting parts of her brand story:

  2. Branding Portraits in her favorite Los Angeles locations
