Getting in front of a camera makes the best of us nervous and it's quite normal to have a few questions especially if it's your first time having a sessions. So to ease your mind, to help you plan and know what to expect I answered the most frequently asked questions from my branding/lifestyle sessions. We will also have a consultation either in person and or online after you book your session to prepare and ease your mind even more.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOLD I PLAN?
As a blogger you should plan one season ahead for your content needed. For a business owner / individual I would suggest planning one month in advance for a photoshoot.
WHEN AND WHERE DO WE SHOOT?
I am a natural light photographer so outdoor shoots would be scheduled for the best times which would be two hours after sunrise and two hours before sunset. Indoor location shoots would be considered by both you and I so that we have an area that offers lighting, depth and context that helps elevate the shoot.
WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE A INDOOR SPACE TO SHOOT?
You can rent an Airbnb/Show house
Use a friends place
Rent a Studio Place
Seek permission to use a restaurant or coffee shop
Rent a studio
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO BRANDING PHOTOS TO KEEP CONTENT FRESH?
Depending on the amount of images needed I suggest doing it four times a year, or for each season of the year. There should also be separate shoots if you are launching a new product or doing something specific.
HOW MANY LOCATIONS CAN I ADD?
For a shoot lasting one hour I would limit to two locations depending on the proximity to each other. One location can work and can really be elevated with the use of multiple props.
HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
Your images will be received in an online gallery with instant download capability. You will also have the ability to favourite, save, download and order prints through the third party site through a professional lab.
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES AFTER SESSION?
You will receive images two weeks after session date.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Something comfortable and that allows you to move, colours that reflect your brand or the season you are shooting for. Business casual is a nice way to be applicable to all audiences.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?
The more props the better. Being in motion, doing something actively working on a product or project I have seen allows for you to relax and get a more natural image. Some things can be
ARE ALL PHOTOS EDITED?
Yes all photos delivered will be edited. I will choose the best images, edit them and deliver them to you for download and print.
