CORPORATE PHOTOGRAPHY STEP BY STEP GUIDE

LOOKING FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER TO DO YOUR COMPANY'S HEADSHOTS? HERE ARE SOME USEFUL TIPS FOR YOU ON HOW TO ORGANIZE THE WHOLE PROCESS STEP BY STEP

1. BUDGET

First of all, let’s start with the budget. You need to decide on how much money you’re ready to allocate. If you need lifestyle photos/or photos for a small team overview page (thumbnails) then you can do it yourself, simply with your phone. But if you need photos as a part of the website design – you definitely need professional high-resolution photos. The price of the shoot usually includes pre-production consultation, photographer and assistant services, travel expenses, editing services (postproduction). Please keep in mind that it’s hard to calculate the fixed price per person without the final details, that’s why photographers usually provide the price for the whole package (that includes all the above).

  • Can you do it yourself?
  • Do you have a photographer friend who can do it for almost free?
  • Invest what you can afford, photos are good for the next 5 years

2. PHOTOSHOOT SCHEDULE

It’s always better to plan the shoot in advance, at least 1 – 2 weeks before, we recommend you select some sample photos your like from our website, so we can better understand your ideas and preferences.

  • At least 1 – 2 weeks before
  • Book an extra few hours in your calendar as it can take longer than expected

3. STUDIO VS ON-LOCATION SHOOT

You need to decide on whether you want to do the shoot in your office or in the photo studio. You can getter a better price deal when you shoot in the studio since it doesn’t include travel expenses for the photographers. But if you have a lot of people that need their headshots done than it’s definitely better to schedule the shoot in your office space.

  • Better setup in a studio
  • More convenient in your office
  • Better price if no travel involved
  • Would you like to do it outdoors?

4. BACKGROUND AND THE FINAL LOOK

It’s always better to plan the shoot in advance, it will give your team members enough time to prepare, plus you will have enough time to decide on the final look for the photos/ determine what background color you want to do for the headshots. Background color is one of the the key elements. If you have a certain website style and you just want to replicate it, just make sure to communicate it your photographer.  On the other hand, if you’re not quite sure on what background/style of the headshots you want to do, we will guide you and help you to make the final choice. You can also always browse through our website Corporate Page and see what background color you like the most.
