Marketing Service| Custom Photography

You know what they say about photos—they portray a businesses brand images; their personality. For businesses, high impact visuals are more crucial than ever.  For brands, high-impact visuals are more crucial than ever.

From product images to campaign shoots and team photos, these visuals are the most critical type of content. Just ask the 68% of marketers considering using more images because of their ad performance. They’re all about making your brand stand out and leaving a lasting, positive impression.

Is your brand well-represented to customers, online and in-store?

Whether you’re in the food and drink industry, fashion and cosmetics, finance and professional service, or other B2C or B2B verticals, perception matters, and it all starts with the right photos.  And it all starts with the right photos. From articles that earn 94% more views thanks to relevant images, to 20% more engagement than videos and 352% over links on Facebook, photos really do speak more—and do better—than words alone.

Using stock photography may be a cost-effective solution but it’s not always the best way to go. That’s why at Consultus Digital, we offer a one-stop-shop solution for your branding and visual identity needs: custom photography.

Get ready to capture and smile. Discover the unparalleled edge that custom photography offers your brand in Toronto.

How Does Custom Photography Work?

Planning and executing your own photoshoot can be costly and that’s exactly why many small businesses in Toronto opt to cut costs by using free, but generic stock photos.

But what if getting your own original and unique photos didn’t break the bank?

Today, custom photography is more accessible than ever in Toronto. And it’s exactly as it sounds: you’ll get a complete photoshoot for your branding needs. From putting together a concept and storyboard, to executing the shoot and handling all post-production, custom photography offers a complete solution to your branding needs.

Whether it’s product photography or getting your team together for corporate headshots and fun photos that highlight your workplace culture, a custom photography agency can help just about any business. See how:

Food Photography

One of the most visually-driven industries is the food, beverage, and restaurant industry. The old saying goes that you eat with your eyes, making presentation and unique food photography essential to any restaurant or food brand’s digital marketing efforts. An expertly crafted food photography shoot can provide you with months worth of exciting content to share with your customers, increasing brand recall and driving users to make reservations.

For brands that offer more intangible services, experiences, or “moments” to their customers, custom lifestyle photography can help elevate your digital presence. This style of photography focuses on capturing real people in real situations to express a feeling, emotion, or association with your brand. Lifestyle photography is also one of the most successful types of visual imagery to share on social media, making it an ideal option for brands looking to boost their performance online.

Product Photography

Product photography can help your new offerings shine on any form of digital or print media. Consumers are bored with traditional, sterile product photography. They are looking for something more exciting and visually engaging that tells them about the product and the brand and what they stand for.

What Is Custom Photography?

Custom photography is any photographed visual content created specifically for your brand. It’s the exact opposite of simply using free photos available online, often as fillers for visual content you don’t have. So, it’s time our custom photography agency changed that.

Essentially, custom photography is all about building your brand’s visual identity, starting with the photos you need to connect with customers and show them exactly what you’re offering. Whether you need photos for your revamped website, product photos for your eCommerce site, or social media content, custom photography provides you with brand images that are uniquely yours.

A professional photographer will typically come to your location or a location set up for the shoot and spend several hours taking shots of different scenes, angles, and compositions to give you a wide range of high-quality choices to use in the future.

You can count on custom photography to provide:

  • Images that are perfectly aligned with your brand’s aesthetic
  • High-resolution, fully captivating brand images for flexible use across your digital marketing assets and channels
  • A cohesive, memorable look and feel across your ads, website, newsletter, social media, and more
  • Unparalleled time and cost savings over time.

How Much Does Custom Photography Cost?

Expensive. Costs that can’t be justified. These are just some of the common perceptions around custom photography. But none of these are true.

And while free stock photos cost exactly zero dollars, they can cost you more in the long run as customer engagement and sales grow stagnant. Plus, even licensed stock images don’t guarantee full ownership no matter how much you pay for non-exclusive access.

The good news is, with the right agency, custom photography offers a more cost-effective, fully original alternative. With typical prices starting in the $100-300/hour range, every pixel will definitely be worth the investment.

Does My Business Need Custom Photography?

Does your website need a visual reboot? Are you having trouble putting together consistently branded social content? Or perhaps you’re struggling to convert customers due to blurry, inconsistently shot, or inaccurate product photos?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, it’s clear that you need custom photography to revamp your brand and establish a single, cohesive, and high-impact visual identity. Custom photography provides you with a library of unique assets to support campaigns and guarantee results from digital marketing.

Still wondering if you need custom photography in Toronto? Here are more reasons why:

  • Custom photography helps you connect with clients and encourages them to trust your brand. Genuine product photos and high-quality visuals of your team at work signal that your business has built a reputation for credibility and authenticity.
  • It’s also a way to get ahead of the competition—especially if they’re still using stock photos and other generic brand assets.
  • You own custom images, while most free stock images are non-exclusive. Imagine what it’s like if you and a competitor selected the same stock image to represent competing products. Custom photography prevents that by providing you with visuals you own, associated with your brand alone.
  • Custom photos provide better value over time since you can use them as much as you want. A library of branded assets means you’ll always have the perfect and consistent product image, social content, newsletter banner, blog header, and more.

Why Is Custom Photography Important?

Custom photography is essential for many reasons, as it gives you the chance to engage with your customers with visually striking and memorable content across many different platforms. Take a look at the 67% of consumers who value high-quality product images, ultimately leading them to a purchase they’ll never regret.

Are you still using free stock photos online, doing your best to make them fit in with your brand? It won’t be long before customers notice and your engagement rate suffers. Here’s why relying solely on stock photos to advertise your brand puts you at risk in the long run:

  • Your brand—and your products—can appear boring, causing customers to pass on them in favour of more appealing images
  • Or worse, it can be perceived disingenuous and fake, which erodes customer trust and any goodwill you’ve built from ratings and reviews
  • Customers aren’t incentivized to take the time to browse your website and learn about your offers, since they believe your brand didn’t put enough effort in promoting them

Custom photography changes exactly that, so you can reach the 50% of online shoppers who convert based on large, high-quality product images—and much less based on product details and reviews. A comprehensive custom photography package helps capture your brand’s positioning in engaging images that can be used to promote your business on social media, paid advertising, print media, and more.

What Other Services Complement Custom Photography?

Custom photography is just one part of forming your brand’s visual identity and creating its story. Once you have the imagery, you need the right tools to share it across the spaces that your customers inhabit and make sure it reaches them.

To amplify your brand’s refreshed visual identity, you need the right channels to promote it. Relaunch your brand with new, custom visual assets and revamped content enriched by them. Connect with customers thanks to a captivating experience, and convert more customer interactions into long-term relationships with:

Use custom photography to enhance the customer experience on your website. Make customers an offer they can’t refuse on landing pages and across your website. Discover the full potential of high-impact custom photography on getting your products and services in front of customers.

Photos are increasingly becoming the most popular content format—especially in local search and ads. Ramp up paid ads on Google and across social media platforms with creative, impactful and on-brand custom photos.

Curate your brand’s social media feeds with custom photography that effectively represents your brand. Highlight your unique, memorable visual identity on a cohesive and consistent feed with high-quality photos.

The Consultus Digital Method

At Consultus Digital, we understand the importance of carefully crafted custom photography in making your brand stand out from the crowd. That’s why our in-house creative team only works with the best professional photographers in Toronto to ensure unique, high-quality content that can be used across all media platforms. We have achieved incredible results for our clients through our effective creative process.

A picture tells a thousand words but choosing what those words are, requires expert planning. Storyboarding is the process of mapping out the message that a photoshoot will communicate and covers everything from shot composition and props, to model choices and settings. Our creative team will craft a unique vision for your custom photography that meets your business goals while also being engaging and shareable.

Once a storyboard is in place, bringing it to life is the next step. Our professional photographers are experts in their field and have extensive experience capturing the perfect moment for your custom content. Shoots often take place over one to two days, which gives our team time to get the shot from every angle and ensure no opportunity for creating viral content is missed.

Once all raw images have been captured, it’s time to fine-tune the results into the most effective branded content. This involves expert tweaking lighting, touching up, removing unwanted visual artifacts, adjusting colour and focus, and cropping for optimal digital marketing performance. At the end of the process, your custom photography content will be ready to be shared with the rest of the world.

The final step is getting your custom photography out in front of potential customers. Your dedicated Account Manager will help organize your content distribution to optimal channels, including display advertising, social media channels, Google Business Profile listings, and relevant websites.

Consultus Digital is the leading custom photography agency in Toronto, specializing in creating unique and engaging branded content optimized for digital media. Contact us today and find out how we can help take your brand to the next level.
