Celebrating World Photography Day

At Visual Identity, we’re passionate about photography and the art of bringing a brand to life!

The first known permanent image was created by a complex process called heliography in 1826. The exposure time needed to create that shot was 8 hours! Things have certainly come a long way in the new digital era.

The first digital camera was created in December 1975, by Steve Sasson, who was an engineer at Eastman Kodak. The camera weighed 8 pounds and recorded 0.01 megapixel black and white photos. It took 23 seconds to create the first photograph.

A picture is worth a thousand words

The human brain is much more adept at absorbing visual information than written, or even verbal formats.

Despite the well-known phrase, “don’t judge a book by its cover”, human beings are naturally visual creatures, and it is in our nature to make first impressions from the images we see.

Professional photography is often seen as an additional expense however, every business, no matter the industry can benefit from having professional photography.

Throughout our 30 years in business, we’ve been lucky to manage photography projects for businesses from a wide variety of industry sectors – from Colleges/University’s, luxury fashion brands, corporate organisations and fireplace manufacturers. Standing still or not – we’ve shot it all!
