Why it’s difficult to find the right photographer
Finding the right corporate photographer to take photos of your company and your employees is an extremely complicated process. It takes time and organisation by the Office Manager, CEO, or COO. Not to mention the research to make sure that the photographer is experienced, professional, has the right equipment and is within your budget… In order to make sure you get the right corporate photographer you will need to do some interviews to work out their pricings, etc. Next, you will need to review their portfolios to ensure the quality of their services and to find out more about their style as a photographer. This will help you get to know your photographer, ensuring that they understand your employee brand.
Ensure that the photographer has the right experience
Hiring a professional corporate event photographer with the right experience can make all the difference to the final result of your photographs. You need to make sure that the corporate event photographer has the ability to easily and quickly make any necessary adjustments to get the right shots in any given setting. A photographer with years of experience in the corporate photography field will definitely have more credibility and be able to adapt to your specific needs more than a recently qualified photographer.
Find a photographer who understands your company’s needs
You need a good listener, someone who understands your company and the direction it’s going in. The photographer must listen to you and be able to adapt to meet your needs and make the most of what they are shooting.
Examine the equipment used by the photographer
A bad workman blames his tools… A talented photographer should be able to make the most of any camera equipment, but it doesn’t hurt to have good quality equipment to make the photographer’s life easier! However, don’t confuse this with picking the photographer with the swankiest equipment, but instead just check that your photographer can meet your requirements with the equipment they have.
Don’t forget photo editing time
We often forget that a professional photographer’s time is not just spent on the job, but also in post-production. Most of the work is done after the photo shoot. Photographers spend a lot of time retouching photos to achieve a higher quality result across all of the photos. Editing time is an important factor to discuss with your future photographer to ensure that their editing style, time and prices match up with yours and that the photos are delivered on time.
Check their prices
Cost is a tricky question because is varies a great deal from shoot to shoot, depending on the photographer and the number of photographs required for the shoot.
Why you need to have a good corporate photographer – The aim of a corporate photographer goes beyond simply taking the photos. The photographer will have to work with the company to highlight its assets through images that convey the company’s identity and values.
Getting quality snapshots
It’s important that the photographer’s “eye” is sharp to get quality photos. Your photographer must have the right experience that allows him to properly frame the photograph, take the shots at the best angles and choose the background.For the quality of the shots, it’s imperative that the photographer delivers consistent results, both in their photography and in the post-production work. Does their work and the images they produce look good? When it comes to retouching, you shouldn’t notice any changes in quality between the images. Be sure to pick someone who knows how to retouch; this involves adjusting the contrast, brightness, colour depth and brightness, to make it picture perfect!
Your corporate photographer should be able to convey your company’s brand and message to the public. Giving a brief and explaining your employee brand will help the photographer to better comprehend your company messages. If the photographer can help suggest great ideas for your photographs that portray your company well, then it is likely that they understand your needs and will provide awesome photos. A professional corporate photo should quickly communicate your employee brand.
