STEP BY STEP WORKFLOW
Firstly we define the project. We talk about the purpose of the pictures. The general look and feel of the images and size of the projects. Important questions at this stage will be:
- How large is the team?
- How many images per person is desired?
- Where and (roughly) when will the shoot take place?
- What background will be used (seamless coloured paper of environmental)?
- Is a studio desired with controlled light or is natural (outside) light preferred?
- Is it essential that all images follow the same rules (i.e. are consistent)?
- Need the images be prepared for cutting out (from the background)?
- What level of post processing is required?
- What are the do’s and don’ts for posing?
Prepping is an important step in the process. It consists of all the actions needed to be shooting ready and notifying your team-members. This step will include a visit to the office(s) to investigate the most suitable shooting space. We will discuss the shooting days and the ways of notifying your team. An online schedule will be made ready so every employee can pick and reserve their own desired timeslot. Days before the shoot every person will receive a little shoot overview with helpful guidelines.
When all things are set in place it is shooting time. Team-members enter the studio (space) one by one. I love a personal approach without taking too much of their (and the companies) valuable time. After a quick introduction we start shooting right away. Depending on the outcome roughly 20 to 30 images will be made. During the shoot I will give clear instructions to get the best impression. After the shoot are shown on a screen for the employee to select. This is an interesting process where a rough selection is made and images are deleted. Eventually your team-member picks the final result.
Images will be delivered within two weeks after the shoot. The exact time will depend on the level of post-production and size of the batch. Images are uploaded to Cloud space where there will be available for everyone to see and download. Typically, two file-sizes are presented: A Full Resolution size (for printing and cropping and a Online Size for digital content like social media. An additional Worry Free service is available where every team-member will receive the results in their own e-mailbox.
