What Is Lifestyle Brand Photography and Why Do I Need It?

Brand photography is a type of commercial photography that looks at a company’s message and current branding and beyond to truly understand the target customers lifestyle. We then craft a commercial photography shoot that truly captures a day in the life of that customer. Product shots are done in the context of this lifestyle creating an emotionally evocative image that truly reflects the brands’ message. These images can then be used for online and print marketing to create a cohesive brand identity. Feather and Root work closely with business owners and their creative directors to craft this visual identity.

Over the past 10 years, the marketing and sales industry has truly been transformed by the advent of social media and rise of the smartphone in every pocket. As consumers, we are overwhelmed with the amount of information out there. Every day we scan huge volumes of information and it has become harder and harder to grab our attention. 90% of what is transmitted to the brain is visual. To stand out in this market you need commercial photography that speaks to your audience and creates an emotional connection.
