Las Vegas Photographers Instagram
If you are a Las Vegas photographer, then you should already be familiar with Instagram, the image-based social media app that can help you market yourself to millions of people around the world. In terms of running an Instagram account as a photographer, there are currently two schools of thought: either having two separate Instagram accounts, with one account is your “personal” account and the other being solely dedicated to your professional photography portfolio; or, foregoing Instagram as a venue to advertise your photography altogether, and keeping your photography work on a separate website.
The best option for a Las Vegas photographer is to consider the nature of their business. In short, what type of photography do you typically do? If you mostly do business related photography, such as taking photos of corporate events or doing corporate headshots, then a separate website is a better option for marketing than an Instagram, which may come across as more “casual” oriented than a dedicated website for your portfolio. But if you do mostly non-corporate photography as a Las Vegas photographer, such as family photos, baby photos, wedding photos, and other photoshoots, then having an Instagram may be able to help you expand your client base more than a dedicated website.
If you do decide to run an Instagram as a Las Vegas photographer, you should always have a photography specific Instagram rather than mixing in your photography work with your personal posts. This will help potential clients find you and your Instagram portfolio easily and will help you keep your business life separated from your personal life. Clients may feel that you are unprofessional if they see personal posts mixed in with your professional work, which is something you will want to avoid as a Las Vegas photographer.
