How to Write a Short Biography for a Photographer


Add a short biography to your advertising and promotional material to give your work a new level of credibility and professionalism. It will also add an element of familiarity to your image. People will always associate your photography with you and your name. Building a thriving business is all about establishing a good brand.

Things You'll Need

  • Photos
  • Pen
  • Paper


  • Start with a great photo. As a photographer, your photo is just one more way to represent your brand. People will relate to you more personally if they know what you look like.

  • Begin your bio by introducing yourself. It's best to write in third person. An example: "Jane Doe is a freelance photographer" (not "My name is Jane Doe").

  • Include your educational background. It adds to your credibility and shows a dedication to your craft. Keep it short, with just a few facts like when you graduated and from where.

  • Talk about any awards or recognition you have earned in your career. People want to know if you're a high achiever in your field.

  • Begin a new paragraph and let your audience in on a favorite experience you've had in your career or something unique you've had the privilege of photographing.
