How to Attract Luxury Clients with Wow-Factor Images

by D'Arcy Benincosa

In this episode, I’m delving into the secret sauce of crafting wow factor images that not only capture attention but also resonate with luxury photography clients. Hit play!

Creating images that truly stand out is the key to attracting luxury clients who crave your unique artistry and storytelling.

Use these four strategies to create wow factor images that attract your dream luxury clients:

1. Develop your directors eye

To create images that exude luxury and captivate the viewer, it’s crucial to develop your director’s eye. Understand the power of angles. A low-angle shot can portray a sense of grandeur and heroism, making it perfect for those jaw-dropping hero images. Conversely, a high-angle shot can evoke innocence and femininity. By mastering these nuances, you can craft images that speak volumes without saying a word.

2. Break free from traditional poses

In the quest to attract luxury photography clients, it’s imperative to break free from the confines of traditional poses. Traditional poses often lead to price shopping comparisons, making it essential to transcend the ordinary. While you may still need to capture some traditional shots for your clients, remember that you don’t necessarily have to showcase them in your portfolio. Be selective, and only share images that align with your unique style and elevate your brand.

3. Recreate traditional art

To create wow factor images, consider drawing inspiration from traditional art forms. Classics like paintings and sculptures can serve as a wellspring of ideas. Infuse elements of timeless artistry into your photography, offering clients images that transcend the realm of a simple photograph and become art pieces in their own right.

4. Create for the sake of creation

One of the most powerful ways to cultivate wow factor images is by fostering a deep love for the art of creation itself. Embrace the process of crafting each image, infusing it with creativity, passion, and a touch of your unique style. When you create for the sheer joy of it, magic happens, and luxury photography clients can’t help but be drawn to your work.

Assignment: Elevate your portfolio

  1. Take a journey through your portfolio, whether it spans a year or a couple of years.
  2. Select 25 to 50 of your favorite images that most resonate with you.
  3. Put all of the images on a moodboard.

Then…

  1. Ask yourself, do these images align with your brand words?
  2. Do they showcase a consistent style and visual identity that’s uniquely yours?
  3. Is there harmony in the color schemes and overall aesthetics?
  4. Do these images collectively tell the story of a photographer who stands out from the crowd?
