Why you need an about page

We know how difficult it can be to write about your accomplishments and tell people you’re the one, without coming across as prideful. Just please don’t delete the about page on your website simply because you’re having trouble communicating who you are.

An about page gives you the chance to connect with potential clients beyond the visuals. How does your story influence how you tell others? What do you share in common with clients? How do you understand them, and why should they trust you?

After all, you’re the person they’ll be working with, long before they see any of their own photos. So help them figure out who you are.

P.S. Resonating with the right people will help you prevent red flag clients, and produce more raving fans (and five-star reviews). So it’s very, very much worth it to write an about page that seals the deal.

How do I write about me as a photographer?

Connect your “why” with what you do, while simultaneously guiding potential clients back to your services page, or even to following you on Instagram (so they can keep you in mind, and come running back when they’re ready to book). Here’s our go-to about page recipe:

  1. A quick intro explaining the experience (more about them, less about you)
  2. Your philosophy or mission — get to the root of your real “why”
  3. USP or three unique selling points as to what makes your work different, and better
  4. A first person intro sharing who you are and what you hope for with your work together
  5. Reviews that rave over who you are
  6. Your backstory: how did you get here
  7. Fun facts or must-haves (think destinations and drinks)
  8. Publications + podcasts you’ve been featured in
  9. Where clients can connect with you — IG, newsletter, contact page…
  10. Top resources or fave blog posts
  11. Optional: team bios
  12. Optional: your core beliefs and values, three or four should do

If your history is a little long, feel free to throw in a visual timeline or a 3rd person bio such as, “Sarah is a luxury wedding photographer” instead of “I am a wedding photographer.”
