Gone are the days of cheesy smiles and posey stock imagery. It makes sense, a human audience want’s a human experience. If bonds are formed through our ability to empathise and connect, then logically we should tell the story behind the scenes, who we really are, what really matters to us if we are to engage with our audience on a deeper level.
Authenticity – ‘not false or imitation – real, actual’.
For some time now there has been a push towards authentic photography – but what actually is that? And how can you adopt it to more powerfully engage your audience?
According to photographer Nuno Silva, authentic photography refers to ‘capturing a genuine moment and not altering the moment too much after the fact…not a posed model and not post-processed into a hyper stylistic interpretation of reality’.
By incorporating authentic photography into your marketing strategy, you are bringing colour and character to your brand, providing a unique and one of a kind experience for your audience, encouraging them to connect with your business on a deeper, more emotional level.
