HOW TO PREPARE
These simple tips will help get the best photography for your organisation.
Have the end in mind. What will you be using the photographs for? National magazine article, internal newsletter, annual report, website profiles etc
Do you require individual or group photographs?
What style do you have in mind? Think about how you want your organization to be represented. Do your research. What does your competition look like, take a look at our web gallery, review magazines and the web for ideas – and, we will also provide you with advice.
What background would you like? The background will help brand your organization – we can use anywhere including your office, painted backgrounds or significant sites associated with your organization (see our web gallery for examples).
LOOKING YOUR BEST
What to wear
Ask people to dress as though they are representing the company and giving a talk to a large group of potential clients. Dressing so the clothes don't distract and communicate your company's values. Simple dark colours work best.If you are planning to have your people photographed in their business shirts, have them bring a freshly ironed shirt for the shoot.
Whether it be a subtle cosmetic touch up or adding people to group shots. We are sure we can accommodate your requests. Click here for an example
Hair & Makeup
Hair and makeup can be arranged for a reasonable hourly rate if requested.
The ideal space to shoot is cleared meeting rooms or board rooms for space and privacy. 5x4 metres is an ideal minimum space for head and shoulders portraits, and we can make any space you have work.
Scheduling your shoot
Depending on the style, here is the suggested scheduling of a head and shoulders shoot.
Setup - 40min
Hair & Makeup(if required) - 15min/person
Portrait Photography - individual 5 min/person
Groups of 5-10 - 10min

Pack Up 30min
Our standard practice is to upload a web gallery as soon as possible after the shoot, you make your selections, then we optimise and upload your selected master files for fast access.
