Artist portrait: the image to position yourself as an artist

As an artist, you may have a long journey to position yourself in your field. The key is to take the right steps to stand out and build a recognizable and reputable personal brand. Photography is one of the most important tools that artists:inside can use to enhance their professional and commercial image. An image that shows seriousness and professionalism. These factors create trust with potential clients, artist agencies, festivals, juries, as well as with potential buyers and the wider public. You need to see yourself as a brand, and you are the product. If you present yourself poorly, you will appear unprofessional.

Artist portrait in Berlin: show the world what you love to do

If you are starting your business as a freelancer:in in Berlin and need a professional photo for your website or for the professional networks like LinkedIn or Xing. It can be a photo in your studio or workshop while you are working, a photo during an exhibition or in a photo studio. As an artist:in and depending on your industry, you should think about how you dress to reflect your character as an artist:in and what type of clothing you want to use to present yourself. Share your passion for what you do and let people see your workspace, studio or workshop. Share your world and show your professional work.

Artist portrait in Berlin: for your social media profile and media kit

Prepare your press kit with artist photos to send to festivals and competitions. Don't think of it as an expense, think of it as an investment. A project without photos or a project with poor quality photos will hardly be noticed.
