Business Branding at Rendition Studios
These sessions are intended to give online visitors a gateway into your business. Images are a strong alternative to stock photography. Sessions are done in natural light and there is little to NO retouching to allow for the most authentic reflection of your environment and depiction of the client’s experience. At a typical business branding shoot, my goal is to give you a mix of environmental portraits combined with lifestyle/candid shots, business details, exterior and interior shots (if needed). Special tools or instruments you use, you at your desk, working with clients, your dog… whomever or whatever is that is normally there and whatever it is you typically do will be captured.
What kind of businesses use this service? I have photographed medical offices, architectural firms, law firms, personal trainers, triathlon groups, spas, non profit startups, food businesses, fulfillment warehouses, golf product manufactures.. you have a business, I will photograph it.
What to expect? On shoot day I will have you show me the space and meet the cast of characters. I might take a few test shots and check the lighting to see where it will be best to do your portraits (if applicable). Areas near windows or stairways can work well, outdoor spaces are the best. If you have models or sample clients coming, be sure to coordinate their arrival with me in advance so we can most effectively use their time. Have the location completely cleaned up and hide whatever you do not want shown (kleenex boxes, cups, trash cans, water bottles, etc). That being said, a messy desk can be OK… it shows you are busy and that you work. These are good things. DO hide papers that show patient information.
Pricing: I do not charge by the number of shots you will get. That varies with each shoot. I charge have an hourly fee and charge by the number of people at your session. Said more clearly… Your $400 fee includes up to 1 hour on site, an online image gallery, direct download, and travel within 20 miles of Rendition Studios. Additional time (before or after your session) is billed at $200/hour (billed in 15 minute increments).
Additional Fees: Sessions are for up to 7 people, groups larger than this are $10 per person additional charge. For documentary photoshoots (no posed portraits) this fee does not apply.
