Muddy Paw PR agency founder Angela Mastrogiacomo may have said it best when it comes to having a professional band photo taken in a photo studio: “There’s something incredibly powerful about a really good promo photo. The way it can capture the attention of music journalists, fans, bookers, and the industry at large.” (Sonicbids, April 15, 2019)
Said more simply, a professional photo can make all the difference in the world to artists, whether you’re looking to:
- Compel more followers by making your social channels stand out from the crowd
- Relaunch your website to attract more fans
- Attract attention to your track/album on music sites
- Improve media attention with a press release or new band press kit
- Catch the eye of ticket buyers with a new concert poster
The advantages of a professional-quality photograph are pretty much endless as an essential element to help artists reach their musical goals. That’s why Royal City Studios now has an on-site photo studio to help artists affordably reach the next level.
