I had stacks of fun in Cape Town recently shooting personal branding business portraits for the Pet Prints Magazine team and I’ve selected quite a few of my favourite shots to share with you here.
As we move into a world with less in-person and phone contact, it’s becoming more and more important to have an online presence that gives potential clients an opportunity to make a connection with you before they meet or speak to you. That’s where personal branding portraits come in.
Pet Prints focusses on promoting the ‘adopt don’t shop’ message as well as being a fun and informative magazine for pet owners in South Africa and the fun was something that needed to come across in the portraits I took. The team of course includes two rescue dogs, Rolo and Mia, so they came along for part of the shoot.
I like to shoot a variety of different portraits during a personal branding shoot to give my clients a big selection of images to use across their social media and marketing platforms. Personal branding portraits should last at least a year and multiple outfits and backdrops make this possible.
We shot casual images with the dogs in a local park and then took outfits to the V & A Waterfont for the more formal portraits.
