How soon should you plan a commercial photography shoot? Sometimes this will be dictated by the needs of your business. For example, you may need to ensure your commercial photography is ready for print deadlines, or to accompany urgent press releases. However, in general, it’s best to book your commercial photographer in as far in advance as possible.
Manchester and Tideswell,Buxton-based Inside Out Photography (IOP) has decades of experience of delivering creative, high-quality, high-resolution commercial photography. Here are what they consider to be the benefits of booking well in advance…
More time for your commercial photographer to plan
The further in advance you make your commercial photographer aware of your project, the more time they have to plan it thoroughly. Remember, the point of commercial photography is to show your product, business or service in its best possible light, so the more time you give your photographer has to plan, the more creative, powerful and effective the results will be.
More chance of good weather
If your commercial photography needs to be taken outside, for example for regeneration projects, garden shows or community initiatives, booking in advance is strongly recommended. The further you book in advance, the more chance you’ll have of securing your commercial photographer in good weather – especially important if your shoot is taking place in rain-prone Manchester!
Ensure your chosen commercial photographer is available
Any commercial photographer worth his salt is likely to be in high demand, especially from repeat clients who have been impressed with previous results. If you have a specific date on which your photo shoot absolutely must take place, book your commercial photographer as soon as possible to ensure he’s available.
More time to edit and enhance your commercial photography
To make sure your commercial photography looks as powerful as you need it to be, there are several post-production enhancements that can be deployed. These range from simple colour correction and boosting to more elaborate, flashier visual effects. Your needs for post-production will depend upon your product and project, but whatever you need, it’s important to allow sufficient time between the shoot and the delivery of the final images.
So if you’re planning on a commercial photography shoot, don’t delay. Book your commercial photographer as soon as possible.
