Business brand photography for Enventure Research, Brighouse, West Yorkshire
A couple of weeks ago, I headed to do brand photography for Enventure Research in Brighouse. It’s great to work with new clients, and I was excited.
Start with the brief.
My brief was to capture some candid pictures of the people in the office, create a few images similar to stock and maybe a group shot. My goal was to tell the story of the business through the people who work there.
When I arrived, it was obvious that the cleaning and de-cluttering fairy had been hard at work as the place was spotless. I introduced myself to everyone and then just started to click away. It’s always interesting where to start, but capturing people is an excellent way to get proceedings underway. People hide behind their computer screens, so it’s a bit of rapport-building.
If I can, I never really want to shoot portraits inside. Natural light is much better than tungsten/fluorescent light in most offices. Getting people outside also makes it less formal for whoever I’m shooting. A lot of my clients are introverted people who don’t like having their picture taken is their idea of a nightmare.
I can always find a backdrop for fabulous pictures and try to make it as easy as possible for them.
The rest of the shoot
After I had taken people’s portraits, the rest of the day was a little easier. They had done the hard part, so I went back to shooting candids. At this point, people have relaxed more, are no longer hiding, and have trust in me, which is essential. I photographed the office dog, some meetings, the exterior of the office, presenting and even some group photos, basically anything which could be used for content.
The shoot was great, I felt relaxed, and I think the results speak for themselves. If you are looking for a photographer to photograph your business, then please get in touch at email@example.com
