Does My Personal Branding Shoot Need to Be In a Studio?

The location of your personal branding shoot helps tell your story. It will also play a role in the first impression you create and what type of audience you attract.


When you think about personal branding photography, a studio setting is usually what jumps to mind. However, this is only one of the many options that you can choose from. Let’s take a closer look at personal branding photography session location options.


Home Office

Do you work from home? Do you feel that your home office visually represents your personal brand? Then it’s perfect for personal branding shoot. Give people an inside view of how you spend your day. Plus, if you want a more relaxed, personal feel, you can even include your pet in a few of the shots. Some people even go as far as taking a few shots in their living room or kitchen. It all depends on the messaging you want to send. Just make sure that your home office has lots of natural light for the best photos.


Meeting Room or Coworking Space

If you don’t feel your home office is right for a shoot, why not rent a meeting room or coworking space? Just make sure that the décor aligns with your brand image. You can even incorporate a few props if you want to add a personal touch. If possible, choose a space that has other areas you can use, such as a lounge with visually appealing furniture.

Photography Studio

A photography studio is still a great location for a personal branding shoot. It offers a very professional setting and you get to take advantage of your photographer’s equipment. If you do want to change things up, find out whether you can bring in your own props and furniture. Most photographers already offer sessions at their studio, so you might not need to pay additional fees for the location.


Apartment or BnB

There are so many beautiful apartments and guest houses that can be used for your personal branding shoot. If you know someone who has a great apartment or you’ve seen a nice location on Airbnb, this can be a good option for your shoot. It’s also ideal if you would prefer a more private setting for your photo session.

Cafes and Restaurants

If you would prefer an atmosphere with a bit of a vibe, why not arrange a shoot at a coffee shop, café, or restaurant? Unless you make prior arrangements though, you might need to work around other patrons. Either way, be sure to speak to the owner of the establishment first.


Get Outside

If your personal brand is more adventurous, an outdoor location could be ideal. Whether this is by the seaside, in a park, or somewhere more mountainous, there is no rule that says you can’t take personal branding photos at an outdoor location. Plus, the backdrop opportunities are endless.

As you can see, there are multiple options, over and above a studio, that you can use as a location for your personal branding shoot.
