Every property is a little different - has it's own character and unique features, and every business has it's own requirements. Maybe you want images that focus on the architecture of the building, or more emphasis on features within rooms.
For this reason, I've found open communication to be a key factor in successfully shooting a property.
I believe, to be able to provide good customer service, you need to understand who your customers are and what they want. Open communication is therefore essential to make sure I can go above and beyond to provide a product the client is satisfied with.
In a previous post I mentioned how working in the hospitality industry has equipped me with the skills to run a great photography business (in this post), so here I thought I would provide a bit of insight regarding what to expect while I'm on a shoot.
I will do research into the business and property prior to the shoot, hopefully this will provide me some insight to what the business is about, any historical significance to the building, things like that.
During the actual shoots I may need to have a couple of visits, either within the same day or on different days.
I will always try to be as flexible as possible with regards to timings as it's always difficult to predict what will happen on the day - The last thing I want to do is cause disruption to your daily business, get in your guests way or have to rush to get images.
Being flexible with timings allows me to provide the best customer service possible. After a successful shoot, i'll be able to provide you with a variety of high quality images having caused little to no disruption within your daily business.
Another reason why it's best to be as flexible as possible with timings is the available light. Certain times of day will provide the best scenes to photograph. Or maybe some images of your business in the evening are required with lamps or candle light lighting a room - creating a scene full of ambience and character.
After the site visits, I'll provide a number of high quality images in two different formats.
One original full resolution, which can be used for printed marketing collateral, and the second will be a smaller resolution for online web and social media usage.
I hope the above info provides a bit of insight in to the type of person I am, as well as show that I'm not afraid to go the extra mile when doing a job.
