What you can do and how a business photography shoots takes place can be very different. It depends entirely on what it is the customer wants and what the event is for. If, for example, it is a golf competition you should photograph, you follow the competition for 4 hours and capture the golfers in action.

When it comes to business photography shoots, the customer will contact us when they need pictures for their website, social media and brochures for the company or special events. Whether the images are to be used in-house or for a website and social media, the result is always best with a professional and experienced photographer.
I have done many different kinds of photography assignments and photographed for municipalities, banks, law firms and large companies. But also for small business owners and various boutique shops. I always tailor and customize my corporate photography shoots.
Creativity and communication
When I talk to our customers, I always ask many questions to create an understanding of the company and what they should use the pictures for. I want to get an idea of the customer’s brand, what they stand for etc. The pictures I create should be in line with the company’s guidelines and the more info I receive, the better service I can give to the customer.
It plays a big role who is the target group and who the customer is aiming towards. Should it be adults or children in the picture? Communication is an important piece of the puzzle for successful business photography.
Sometimes our customers do not know what they are looking for and then I help and come up with ideas and suggestions on what to do. “Who are you?” “Who do you want to be?” Are questions I usually ask.
I take everything from portrait images with white or black background to going out into nature and taking environmental pictures. I use drones as well as capturing photographs from the ground, these complement each other in a very good way and give a nice variety of pictures.
Delivery of pictures
The delivery of the images after a business photography shoot may be very different, it depends on when and how quickly the customer needs them. At events you often have to have the pictures directly and then I always make sure to deliver directly.
I always give you the pictures in different formats depending on which platform you are going to use them for I have received very positive feedback from previous customers of how easily the delivery of their pictures are, images are in different folders such as facebook / instagram / website.
