Helpful tips to make your corporate photoshoot a success.
Corporate Photoshoot has been part and parcel of our growth as professional photographers for over 15 years. Within the 15 years of Professional photography in Gauteng, we noticed that the clients who approach us with a plan and vision are the ones who get more satisfaction on the final product.
There are quite a number of important details when planning a corporate photoshoot and for many clients, this might seem overwhelming. With that said we have put together a few tips to guide you in the right direction when planning a professional photoshoot with us or with another Photographer in your area.
- Have a clear vision.
Visualise your photoshoot ideas, Ask questions like what kind of image do I want my brand to portray. What is the message you are trying to send out to your clients? These questions are important so that you can have a proper strategy going forward. Some of the ideas might include working together with your team to get better results. In Most cases, Corporate photoshoots are done to portray equality at the workplace as opposed to hierarchy.
Though these are just ideas however they give us a clear picture as to how to conduct the photoshoot session.
The context of the photos also plays a big role, Like knowing where the photos will be used, sometimes some companies do a corporate photoshoot for reasons that include, Website usage, Social media advertising or Solely for marketing purposes. The context helps us to layout, frame, and plan for your studio photoshoot or location photoshoot.
If you also going to be making use of the headshots it is important that you advise us as your portrait photographer so that we can have an idea of how we will plan on shooting, because there are many factors in a photoshoot that can affect the day. Eg For portrait photography the lighting is different as opposed to a group photo shoot. These are just a few things to consider so that we can cover without glitches.
2. Mapping the plan out.
Remember your vision guides your ideas, research who your competitors are, and how they do their things and try to do better than them or something completely different that will give them a hiding.
Look for sample photos that are similar to your concept so that you can have an inspiration board.
Take notes of the important details you like about the chosen photos. Although you might have seen corporate photoshoot or office staff photoshoot from a different website, your professional photographer will also have the photoshoot ideas that will help you achieve your goals.
At TC productions we always like to meet at the photoshoot location, or onsite before doing your corporate photoshoot, This will help us to go over the concept at hand and visualise, scrap, and add more photoshoot ideas that might come up.
Sometimes sharing your photoshoot ideas with your photographer will help create a better understanding of what you are trying to achieve.
At TC productions we specialise in wedding photography, studio photoshoots, family photoshoots, corporate photoshoots, and event photography. We always look forward to hearing what your plans are so that we can put together a team that is dedicated, passionate, and always looking to learn.
We trust that the selection of photos we have compiled for you will be a great tool, to helping you plan for your photoshoot.
