What to expect on your Professional photography shoot.
If you are booking a session with a photographer then there are certain things which you would expect, and also there are certain things which will be expected of you too.
The photography shoot is definitely a two way process between the client ( that's you ) and the photographer.
Planning and preparing well, is the key to success. Most people who are used to working within this environment will use a photographic brief to communicate the ideas and plan to the photographer for the shoot well in advance of the shoot date.
If you are new to planning professional photography, whether you are based in Leeds or London the process is easily adapted to your particular needs.
1. What is it you need to photograph.
2. How will it be shot, is there a style to follow, or technical criteria to fulfill.
3. Where?, in studio or on location?
4. If in studio do the items need to be assembled, or prepared prior to the shoot.
5. If on location, does the environment need to be prepped or adapted to suit.
Once the shoot is under way, normally an approval process would need to be agreed first. Ideally the person who can make the ultimate decision to whether or not the image is correct should be on the shoot, if this is not possible then another person should be appointed in their place, or again if this is not possible someone on the end of an email who can approve.This process cuts down the need for projects to be re-staged.
