The Photography Industry is incredibly competitive. How are potential customers going to make that important decision – to choose you as their special photographer? And it’s definitely not all about price.

Each one of us is unique because we are artists. We all have our own individual styles and specialisms. How can we stand out as unique and different? And even more challenging:  how can we get our potential customers to realise that we are unique and different?

This course will help us to understand our positioning in the photography world and how we can get our customers to perceive us as their photographer of choice.


  • Looking at your own busines: what can you offer that is special and different?
  • Understanding how some other highly competitive industries manage to stand out from each other (Their USPs)
  • Identifying your competitors and the ones you especially would like to beat
  • Identifying the customers you want to attract: what will they be looking for?
  • The Marketing Mix tools: Looking at the 7 P's of marketing (Product, Price, Place, Promotion, People, Processes and Physical Evidence) and how to use each of these to develop a brand identity which will make you stand out from the crowd
