Brand Photography How-To: Header Images For Your Website

Every time I get on a Clarity Call with a prospective client, the conversation eventually turns to brand photos. Not that I'm complaining... I'm glad my clients have questions about photography, because photos make a huge difference on the quality of a website.


The header photo is the first thing your website visitors will see "above the fold", which means what appears before they scroll- so these banner photos are important in making a first impression!


Want to know the secret to getting the photos you need?


Tell your brand photographer that the photos are for your website and plan ahead!


The way I see it, there are four configurations for photo composition for banner images: the subject placed to the far left, left-center, right-center, and far right. Getting a variety of photos placing the subject (most likely you!) in all 4 configurations will give you the most flexibility for your website design. This leaves room for graphics, your logo, text, buttons and other elements everywhere else.
