The Power Of Branding In Photography & How To Brand Yourself | Joel Grimes

The Power Of Branding In Photography & How To Brand Yourself | Joel Grimes | a photographer's life | Scoop.it

Positioning yourself in the marketplace so that you are associated with something particular is what branding is, according to Joel Grimes, as he discusses in this latest edition of his Behind The Lens series. Just like we say Kleenex when we mean any facial tissue, or Coke for any cola. In terms of photography, he essentially links branding in field with having a certain look.The biggest compliment for Joel is when someone can see an image and associate it with him even before knowing for certain whose work it was. With as many photographers as there are, this can seem like an insurmountable task, but Joel insists it’s not exactly rocket science. Rather, it’s the combination of focus, time, and repetition. That’s not to say repeating the same thing over and over again will garner you success, but that in order to be associated with something, a look, it usually takes having done it numerous times, and over a lengthy period of time – about 2 – 3 years in his estimation. His humility allows him to say often that he isn’t a creative genius, and that he’s not a brilliant man, but that his love for the creative process and strong work ethic are keys to his success. The passion is what gets him going, and the work ethic allows for it to be executed. Once you are associated with a look, and have that brand association, Grimes stresses that you must understand that there is a shelf life to all branded looks, and you may be lucky enough to get in at the right time with your look, or perhaps the worst time when that look is ‘out’. Either way, you have to make sure the brand is yours, and your vision, so the process of evolution is really personal rebranding, and only if it’s yours will you have the staying power to see it through.......

Mario Pires's curator insight, October 27, 7:33 AM

Luise Heiderhoff: "It’s interesting to see the process of drawing up a shortlist, and making the final pick and then to compare the procedure of the different photographers.

But what I especially like is to look at the contact sheet and think about which photo I would have chosen or to see what else has happened during the shoot or the event."

The physical form and shape of a photobook matter immensely. Photobooks are objects, designed to be looked at, to be handled, to be stored. This is a fairly obvious statement.

"The question ultimately is: does the concept of this book require the use of gatefolds, which will have the viewer interact with the book in a very specific way, and which will drive up production costs?"

"I had to move back home after having a rough summer where assisting work and shooting work was extremely slow and I had no savings because my overhead was so high with student loans, rent, insurance, etc. Moving back home was my last resort and I felt like a failure for a bit. After beginning the project and realizing how many others were out there like me, it was clear that I needed to bring this story to light and share the experience of the “Boomerang Kids,” including my own story."

This is really a photographer's life. An independant freelance photographer can't get close to the heads of state at the G7 summit, so he makes this photo story.

Mario Pires's curator insight, June 24, 5:28 AM

"Writing a book about contemporary photography is a bit of a thankless task since the moment it’s published, there already is something else that is not included in the book. But completeness cannot be the goal of such books. Inevitably, something will be missing, for whatever reason. There will probably also be categories, resulting in debates whether artist XYZ should not have in fact been placed elsewhere, or whether some category might be missing."

Mario Pires's curator insight, June 27, 5:21 AM

"The state of transactional image licensing is one of continued irrelevance — there’s a reason why Shutterstock has gained marketshare, and why new offerings crop up that look nothing like their predecessors. A whole new generation has been educated on what image acquisition means, and its expectations on everything from price, use, and point of access are far afield from the realities of years past. This generation, as well, is defining a reality that is broader in scope than image licensors can envision."
