The initial consultation can be done over the phone or in person to discuss your requirements and determine how to align the photography with your brand.
Things to consider:
Head and Shoulders only or full lenghts portrait
Individuals or group photos or both
Colour images or black & white (other processing also possible)
Formal or casual
A typical head & shoulders portrait takes about 5min -10min per individual
Group shots take about 10-15 min per group
Viewing the images
The images of the shoot will be uploaded to a private online gallery within 24 hours.
Once we receive your selection we will retouch the images to remove any skin blemishes, soften lines etc. The retouching is subtle but can make all the difference.
Delivery of Images
Images will be delivered as digital files within 24 hours after receiving your selection. Depending on the number of images they can be delivered by email or on DVD
Preparation and tips for the shoot
Think about the end product, where and how will the images be used e.g. printed material or web.
Find out if your company has guidelines for staff photos.
If we are matching existing photos please provide samples
Think about what type of background you like. White backgrounds look clean and will allow graphic designers to add text or other elements to the image.
For photos at your location a large office or boardroom are usually suitable. De-clutter as much as possible.
Give your staff as much notice as possible to ensure everyone is available.
Let your staff know in advance what the dress code is. Generally darker colours work better.
Professional hair and makeup is nice but not required. We are able to provide you with names of mobile hair and makeup artists.
If men are going to have a haircut we suggest do to it 3-4 days before the shoot.
