It’s All About You! Why Small Business Owners need to be a big part of their Brand Photography

You’ve shed sweat, blood and tears to build your business and every little detail of it has you stamped all over it. You’re passionate about what you do and that’s pretty infectious. You are undoubtedly what makes your business a success.


So for all those small business owners out there, when it comes to marketing your business I think it’s so important that you’re a big part of it. When I’m working with clients I often hear “I don’t like having my photo taken!” and “do I really need to be in the photos” And the answer 100% is YES! After all you are an important part of your brand and people buy from people (as the saying goes). Images featuring people are that much more engaging, so to help build your brand on your website and to connect with your audience on your social media channels you need to get involved.


Small Business Brand Photography


I’ve worked with some fantastic small businesses who’ve totally got this. Let’s take - Vagabonds Barbers a great local barbers business in Stoke-on-Trent headed up by Jamal, who started the business from scratch a few years ago, with a clear vision of making it that little bit different and to create a strong brand for his business. And boy has he achieved it.



I love working with these guys and I never fail to capture some really cool images of them doing what they do best. I always take a mixture of what you might call more posed photos, as well as some shots of the guys in action. While these guys are pretty comfortable in front of the camera I get that a lot of people aren’t, but that’s where I come in. I’m also a highly experienced wedding photographer so I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve to get people to relax and just be themselves.



There is no one that I know who totally represents their brand and business better than Miki, a proud Mancunian who founded the Manchester Shop at the iconic Manchester landmark Afflecks Palace. A colourful character, with a huge personality, who not only runs the shop but designs and sources all of the products on sale. So when Miki asked me to take some new photos of her shop and products, there was no way that she wasn’t going to feature! (along with some of her very cool friends). And I’m sure you’ll agree that the results are pretty awesome.
