How to use your photographs on social media

Most often I photograph content for my clients to use on their social media, and these days this mostly means Instagram and Facebook.

Here are a few tips on getting the most out of your photography session with me, both during the shoot and after you receive the photos:

  • Think about the kind of content that works best on your social media. Is it images or videos? Closeups or wide shots? Negative space or colourful?

  • Do you need images that can be cropped square for Instagram or will you use them for banners on your website and Facebook too?

  • Load all your photographs to a Dropbox or Google Drive and have the appropriate app installed on your phone, so you can easily access the photographs at any time.


Your content is not just for social media! Upload it to your website, create blog posts! Send an eflyer to clients.

Need help doing some or ALL of this? I can help. I now offer social media assistance and management to my photography clients.

Currently I am working on building my own social media presence significantly and this is what I have learned so far..

In the month of September I posted an image EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

I also upped my blogging, instagram stories and engagement with social media.

Which means replying to every single comment, and message. Engaging with my followers on their own accounts and with new people I would like to work with.

And while this was sometimes exhausting… I maintained by high engagement rate of around 4% across the month and increased my followers by 133. Which was triple what I had gained in the previous month.

So if you are having some trouble maintaining a presence on social media or simply want my hot tips on how to make it all easier, please get in touch!
