Personal Brand Photography & Creating Super Fans with Jamie Swanson

SUBSCRIBE: iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher

You may have heard about a new genre of photography for Entrepreneurs, Small businesses & Influencers. Consumable photography to help clients, connect & build their Personal Brands?

Marketing powerhouse Jamie Swanson saw the potential in this new industry and made it her mission to educate photographers on how they can add in this service, or pivot their entire business to a profitable and rewarding new genre.

Personal branding photography is beyond headshots or glamour photography. It’s about understanding and connecting with your ideal client, building relationships, and creating ongoing revenue for photographers.

I wanted to share Jamie with you because I know from first-hand experience how hard it can be to get your own personal brand photos, and how the Personal Branding Photography industry is still just still in its infancy with the online business space still growing, with so much potential for photographers. But even more, I love Jamies’ ability to assess situations, see an opportunity, and then take action on trying new things and pivoting.

This episode is chock-full of tips and advice if you are someone who has been curious about how it all works, mind-set shifts that photographers need to consider, and where to start.
