Giving your customers a look behind the scenes of your business helps them engage with you and your products. Seeing the face behind the brand, visualising the process, or looking around the location where the magic happens can really give depth and clarity to your marketing.
I love capturing the atmosphere of clients’ shops, studios and creative spaces, and showcasing the process behind the product. The thought of inviting the world to see your workspace can be daunting, but don’t worry – styling comes as standard and ‘busy’ can be quickly translated into ‘beautiful’ with minimal effort and disruption.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Location photoshoots are £195 plus travel expenses (outside of Derbyshire). I will spend up to three hours with you to capture a variety of images of your business location, work environment, portraits of you, the people you may work with or your pets (please say your dog will be there), and the processes behind your products/services.
Take a look at some examples in my portfolio.
Working with Holly is always an absolute dream! I am naturally awkward and rather shy in front of a camera (think Chandler Bing when I’m told to smile!) but Holly made me feel nothing but myself and so relaxed. As a result the shots she captured are perfect and so natural. Hanging out for the afternoon in my studio and in Buddy the Sunshine Van was so much fun and I could not be happier with the outcome. If you’re looking for some fun, laid back, natural yet professional studio and portrait shots for your business then Holly is the photographer you need!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
I understand that not everyone feels comfortable in front of the camera (I’m right there with you) but I do know how important it is to show your customers the face behind the brand. Behind the scene shoots are relaxed, informal, and usually feature plenty of tea breaks and chatting.
HOW CAN I USE THE IMAGES?
Customers like to understand a brand’s story or to see the people behind the business. You might use the images on the about page of your website, in your social media profiles and feeds, in your print and online marketing materials and even within videos and other media. Using the images in a variety of settings and platforms means they are even better value for you.
WHAT KIND OF IMAGES WILL I GET?
I typically shoot a mixture of your business location and environment, portraits of you, and work process images. The exact balance is down to your preferences and what you need the images for.
A behind the scenes brand photoshoot is the perfect option if you’re after commercial lifestyle images which are relaxed and natural, but which still incorporate your brand style so they fit in with the other images you may share.
DO YOU OFFER ANY VIDEO SERVICES?
I don’t personally but I do work alongside the brilliant Lara Elliott on occasion to capture behind the scenes and studio tours. If you’d like to discuss the option of working with the both of us, please get in touch.
