Brand Photographer

Looking for a brand photographer for your company?

My name is Kelley Hoagland and I’m a brand photographer based in Chattanooga, TN.

It’s no secret that we live in a highly visual world. Truly, the demand for new content is ever present. Did you know that Etsy found through its customer research that good product photos where more critical to its consumer’s buying decisions than shipping costs, customer reviews, and even the actual cost of the item? Therefore, if you own a business, you must have good images to represent your brand online and on social media.

Being a business owner myself, I personally experienced the fact that growing venture requires plenty of hustle at the start.  You learn new skills you never imagined yourself trying; all for the sake of a thriving, growing business. However, as your business expands, you reach the point where you don’t have time to do it all yourself.  It’s time to outsource.  

Let me take photography content creation off of your to-do list. I help businesses in Chattanooga, TN and across the country create professional, eye catching images. My images include commercial release to be used on websites, social media, and print media to help communicate your company’s message.

“I couldn’t recommend Kelley enough if you are looking for a {brand} photographer! Kelley photographed products for my business and {I} was beyond happy with the results! The whole process was easy and smooth! I have worked with different photographers in the past but Kelley definitely went above and beyond!”

What is Brand Photography?

Brand photography is not just for large, national companies. Equally important, local small business and service providers (i.e. realtors, therapists, hair stylists, etc) require brand photography as well for their online presence.

In a nutshell, brand photography produces custom images that communicate your brand’s identity and offerings. We all probably automatically identify generic stock images when we see them online. In contrast, a brand photographer creates unique images that communicate an individual company’s character, tone and aesthetic. This helps a small business or service provider appear more approachable, relatable, professional, and genuine.

Types of brand photography offered include:

  • Lifestyle Brand Photography
  • Product Photography
  • Professional Headshots
  • Outside or Interior Images of physical locations

Each brand photography shoot can be style differently to suit your needs! On location and studio backdrop options are offered for headshot and product photos. Choose between having your products photographed as lay flats or worn by models. Truly, I love hearing about company’s visions and helping bring them to life!

Ship and Shoot Brand Photography Service

What if you’re interested in working with me, but don’t live anywhere near Tennessee?

Depending on the type of photography coverage you require, my Ship and Shoot Brand Photography service may be a perfect fit! Believe it or not, I’ve worked with brands in California, Louisiana, and Ohio without stepping foot on an airplane.

Let me help make brand photography super simple with my Ship and Shoot Service. Instead of spending precious time coordinating and attending a photoshoot in person, mail me your products. I will style and photograph them remotely!

1) First, we’ll connect to discuss your vision and the scale of your project.  We will make use of Pinterest Boards to make certain that we are both on the same page creatively. 

2) Then you’ll ship the products to me before the scheduled photography shoot date. I then craft photos that put your product in their best light. 

3) Finally, once the work is completed, I send the images digitally via an online gallery and carefully return ship your products with a label you provide!

This type of service perfectly suits Etsy product and e-commerce photography needs!  I can even optimize your images to work for Shopify and Etsy photography platform requirements as needed. 

What is the cost of hiring a brand photographer?

I fully understand that every business is unique! Therefore, pricing will vary depending on the scale and needs of that particular project.  After contacting me, I set up a phone consult or send an email questionnaire.  I use this to gather the details necessary for providing an accurate estimate for the cost of your project.  Some things to consider include:

  • How many products will be photographed?
  • What type of setting do you envision for the product photos (studio vs on location)?
  • What preparation do your products require before they are photo ready?
  • What level of styling is desired during the photoshoot?
  • Will models be required?
  • Will your images require optimization for specific online platforms?

I price product photography projects per item. What does this mean for you? No need to worry about whether I photographed everything within an hour as you wait for an invoice. As a result, you experience no pricing surprises!  Instead, you know your total investment up-front at the start of the project.
