How long does a small shoot last?
To be honest, I struggle creating packages that will fit all small business needs. You are each so unique!
Let's break down what elements of a shoot that determine the time needed then get into package options.
-number of models
-model experience / efficiency
-number of outfit changes
-hair & makeup needs
-change of location + driving time
-the public (waiting on passersby or a truck to move along)
-availability of the location (public spaces may have limited hours)
I shoot mostly natural light so time of day and weather conditions are an important part of my approach. When shooting outdoors, I'll always push for early mornings or later evening just before sunset and those hours are fleeting in the mountains!
Products // Styling
-number of products you need photographed
-number of ways you need the product photographed
-styling props to set the scene (the amount of props we're working with + the time to style them)
I rarely have small business clients ask about the amount of images they'll receive because they're not shopping for bulk.
A good reason for that? Your products and services will continue to evolve, so your photography needs will too. It's not necessary to have 10 photos of 1 product from slightly different angles. It's better to have less images, each of stellar quality.
Narrowing down your needs for the photo shoot greatly helps your photographer provide an accurate time frame + quote for the session. Not everyone knows the answers to these questions from the start but that's what I'm here for! I'm happy to help brainstorm the session visually and logistically.
I offer a standard small business session that often suits most client needs but I'm also happy to modify it. I work with small businesses because I enjoy being flexible and working together for the best results.
Looking for ongoing photos that evolve with you and your goals? I offer monthly and seasonal packages as well as my standard small business session!
