Social media is a huge part of most businesses and photography is no exception. Although many of our skills our transferable, it’s sometimes hard to make the right, professional impact on social media.

If you just don’t have the time to create social media graphics yourself, try the Social Media Graphics Builder. Use different elements to create something that fits your brand, with countless combinations to choose from. There’s a handy social media ‘cheat sheet’ included, too!
We can be so fixated on banners and graphics that sometimes we forget the most obvious things, like icons! These social media icons are perfect for your blog, website, stationary or more. You can change the colour of the icons to suit your brand.

Tuts+ Tips for Social Photography
- Try to keep your social media on brand—so fans and clients can recognise you at a glance.
- When you’re using Instagram, think about how to tell a story with your images.
- Patreon helps you give back to your followers and potentially earn some money too.
- Upload images to social media at the right sizes. Facebook in particular can compress your photographs terribly.
- Try live video broadcasts to engage your audience and share exciting ‘behind the scenes’ details with them.
