A journey of
five simple steps
I take great pride in detailing the shooting process at length, from first contact to final delivery, within each official proposition, all while tailoring it to your requirements and ambitions.
The following is an inside look at those details.
Once your project is green lit, the next step is focused on research and learn as much as I can about your team. This includes checking their LinkedIn, reading any papers they have published, and glancing at their social media. This not only helps me better grasp who they are as firm partners or employees, but most importantly as human beings.
Short introductory emails are then sent to each, explaining the overall process and answering any concerns they have. This step is crucial in its creating a bridge of trust and understanding between models and photographer before the shoot has even begun.
Come the big day, everyone will feel familiar, at ease and excited to be there, rendering the entire experience a smooth and frictionless one for all.
The Big Day
On site, things are on ne peut plus zippy. The setup, trimmed from excessive gear and elaborate lighting tests, means we are ready to shoot within a fraction of the usual time.
It's a matter of logistical prowess at this point, depending on the size of your teams. Whether it is 10 people captured in a comfortable hour to a company of 50 photographed within a day's time, we're juggling emotions and execution in one effortless flow.
Back at the office, it's now time to import, catalog and archive the session. This step is all about filtration, from removing any picture that doesn’t meet quality standards to selecting the most evocative and relevant shots.
The distilled content, called a Contact Sheet, now showcases the very best out of every person photographed. This online gallery is where you’ll make your selection, annotate it with your comments, and send it back my way for editing in a matter of clicks from any device.
Once you're all set, the chosen photos will be edited in colours and black&white, in a natural way.
No glamour retouching or extensive photoshopping work is involved; every bit of energy is put on harmonizing the composition, editing minor imperfections and making sure nothing is distracting away from your expressivity.
Don’t worry though, that fresh morning pimple is taken care of.
The Finishing Line
New look, new portraits, new way of sharing them.
Gone are the days of boring old dropbox folders, you’re now able to view your shots in full screen from any mobile and desktop device, create personalized galleries, instantly share them with the rest of your team and download them in a variety of preformatted resolutions, from lightweight 1K to 4K beauties in a matter of clicks.
Peace of mind is of utmost importance, which is why everything is backed up for life, online, locally and off site, on dedicated encrypted servers. Making a presentation and forgot where you put a file 3 years from now? We didn’t.
Oh and the usage fees are also taken care of. Every package comes with built-in licenses that allow you to use the photos anywhere you would need them, from your promo material to social media.
