Often companies will contact me to create the photographic content for their brochures. Brochure photography is a very important feature for any business these days. It involves not only promoting their services, but also portraying the style and look of their company to both current, and potential clients.
For this reason I will discuss with the client before the shoot, and even call out to the location to get ideas for the shoot. It can also be useful to view a previous brochure. Often companies will do yearly or quarterly brochures. That way I can determine with them which photographs worked, and which didn’t before.
As the photography is normally done in and around the company offices, staff are normally asked to be in the brochures. However the staff aren’t used to being photographed, so you really need to help them relax to get the best out of them. I will often ask them to talk among each other once I have found a setup and location that I like. This often produces the most relaxed and realistic expressions. Often the nerves will produce a few giggles which can often help, as nobody wants their brochure to be too serious or moody. It is important to show the human side of a business too.
As the staff normally know each other quite well, they relax and have a good time with the photography. I’ll normally suggest topics they can talk about to one another to stop them from freezing up and getting embarrassed. They normally have a lot of fun with this. It is important that the staff come across as friendly, approachable and professional. Just the right amount of smiling for the shot to look realistic and not forced. A certain amount of hand movement too helps it to look more realistic.
Sometimes if the office is open plan, I like to use a slower shutter speed to blur out anyone walking by. This can also be useful when a company doesn’t wish to use any employees in their photographs, but just to have an idea/suggestion of them. I also like the affect it creates. The office appears still but the employees show movement and activity, but no details of who they are.
Before the shoot I will talk with the client and come up with some ideas and sample photography to show them, so that we are both on the same page. This will also save us time on the day itself. Google images and Pinterest are great starting points for inspirational photography. I will often suggest that the client look for some images that they like so I understand their tastes better. This can be a great starting point.
