What Is Custom Brand Photography?
WHAT IS CUSTOM BRAND PHOTOGRAPHY?
Custom brand photography is unique photographic content created specifically for your brand, product, or event.
With the rise of social media, digital marketing has become a more visually driven space than ever before. With image and video focussed platforms like Instagram having over 1 billion monthly active users, brands cannot afford to miss out on this incredible opportunity to engage with their customers. Custom brand photography is an ideal way to communicate your brand image, tone, and story while presenting customers with engaging images that are more likely to attract potential business – instead of using stock photography that appears staged, redundant, and overall a cheesy representation of your business.
At The Influence Agency, we approach each custom brand photography project as a unique experience designed to capture the essence of our client’s brand.
We begin by gaining an in depth understanding of your brand, including its history, unique sales proposition, positioning in the market, and target audience. Our photography experts will take into account the message you wish to communicate, as well as the audience you want to engage, and create compelling storyboards for your custom photographs.
With a clearly defined strategy for your photoshoot, The Influence Agency begins sourcing the best locations, props, and models to ensure your customer photographs will meet the highest standards. With millions of photos uploaded to social media every day, high quality, professionally taken images have the greatest chance to stand out from the crowd and generate the engagement your business needs.
Our in house photography professionals will then capture a range of images that meet the brief and tell potential customers your brand’s story. They say a picture tells a thousand words, so we always ensure we take as many pictures as possible to give you a wide range of options to choose from. Every angle, every backdrop, we’ve got you covered.
Once we have the raw images, our creative team gets to work editing the best photos to create some truly unforgettable imagery. Colours will be corrected, shadows refined, and composition perfected, resulting in custom brand photography completely unique and consistent to your brand.
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
Custom brand photography is crucial in the modern landscape of digital marketing, as it allows your brand to engage with potential customers in a unique and memorable way.
Stock imagery can work for a range of different projects in a pinch, however, many other brands will likely have access to the same photography. This runs the risk of posting the same visual assets as your competition or entirely unrelated brands, confusing customers and making your social media channels boring and forgettable.
Custom brand photography ensures your brand will stand out from the pack with eye catching visuals that communicate brand messages in an engaging way. These images can be used to promote new products, raise brand awareness, and across all social media channels as required.

The Influence Agency is by far one of the best agencies I've worked with in Toronto. They provide so much value to each and every one of their clients, and I've had the pleasure of working with them on many different campaigns. As an artist, they have also provided me with valuable insight regarding the growth of my personal brand. Not only are they professional, but very personable. They are a delight to work with, and I would recommend them to anyone interested in growing their brand or business in an meaningful and creative way.
