Updated: Apr 22, 2023

Corporate photoshoots are a great way for businesses to showcase their products and services, as well as the people behind the brand. However, to ensure the photoshoot is a success, it's important to properly prepare in advance. Here are 10 important points to consider when preparing for a corporate photoshoot and what to ask your photographer before they arrive:

  1. "What is your experience with corporate photography?" - This is important to know because you want to work with a photographer who has experience in the type of photography you need, and knows how to make your brand look good.

  2. "How do you handle multiple subjects and group photos?" - This is important because you may need group photos of your team, which can be challenging to get right. Make sure you ask the photographer about their experience with group shots.

  3. "What is your process for capturing candid shots?" - These types of photos can be valuable for portraying a company's culture, and can be used to show off employee's personalities.

  4. "Can you provide me with examples of your work?" - See the portfolio of the photographer and see if he has experience and if the quality of his work is good enough for you.

  5. "What kind of equipment do you use?" - Professional photographers usually use professional-grade equipment, so make sure you are aware of what your photographer is using.

  6. "How will you handle retouching and editing?" - Editing is an important step in making photos look their best, so make sure you understand what the photographer's process is.

  7. "Can you work with our brand guidelines?" - Your corporate photos need to be consistent with your company's branding, so it is important to ask the photographer if they are able to work within your guidelines.

  8. "Can you provide us with the raw images?" - It's always a good idea to ask for the raw images from the photoshoot, in case you need to make any adjustments or need them for other purposes.

  9. "What are your rates?" - Make sure you know the costs for the photoshoot and what is included in the price.

  10. "What is your turnaround time?" - Turnaround time is important to know, as you may need the photos for an upcoming event or campaign.

By covering these points, it will help you to better understand the photographer's approach and experience with corporate photography, and will give you a better idea of what to expect from the shoot. Jordan Roach 2023
