How does a team headshots day work?

  1. For starters, getting a date in the diary is the first step. The date has to work for most teams and their staff.
  2. The date is confirmed in all diaries, office and team, directors, managers and individual people.
  3. The photographer and the commissioning person, marketing director or office manager will discuss the requirements, style of photographs, location in the office space, dress code and general branding guidelines.
  4. A style guidance is issued and circulated to everyone so that they are all aware of how to prepare and what to wear on the day.
  5. Practicalities such as the order of the day, number of people, any group shots etc are part of the planning.
  6. On the day the photographer will set-up the studio space and will start taking headshots of people on the list. Things can run pretty smoothly when planned well and everyone one knows the location /room for the shoot and when they are to make an appearance.
  7. Once everyone has had their photos taken, the photographer will pack up the studio and everyone will breathe a sigh of relief that the day went well and was properly planned.
  8. After settling invoices etc the photographer will send to the commissioning person a gallery with the images for everyone to make their choices. Sometimes choices might have been made on a computer after the individual photoshoot.
  9. Final images edited will be shared by the photographer with the company and everyone can enjoy and start using their new photographs.

This is a standard day and of course there are things that might happen such as not everyone is able to make the day. Often photographers offer a reshoot date or the option to go to their studio. When working with me, I make sure we have all the details ironed out. A recce visit is sometimes needed to get a feel for the space and the people of the company.

Most importantly people are happy with the end results and enjoy the process of being guided and engaged professionally during their individual photoshoot time, when working with me.
