I've got the know-how to sprinkle my photographic fairy dust across the spectrum, benefitting businesses left, right and centre.

Business Branding 1: RPT (Range Personal Training)

Testimonial photography: Client showing support

The purpose of this photoshoot is to create images for the business website for Range Personal Training (RPT). As stated in the name, it's a company that provides personal training to clients.

Since I had experience doing photography for other personal trainers and gyms, I was able to suggest ideas to the business owner instantly upon I was approached.

Eventually, we identified that the scope of the photoshoot would cover:
- Solo profile pictures for the owner
- Coaching and interaction with his clients
- Abstract photographs of the gym equipment

Since the personal training trade involves a lot of interaction between the trainers and their clients, my main target was to get a very comfortable, joyful and natural expression, to leave a good impression on the website's visitors.

Eventually, I suggested a package that would involve a very tight schedule and the owner counter-proposed a more comfortable timeframe, which greatly helped the success of this project.

During the photoshoot, I encountered various challenges, such as dim light (indoor) and very directional light (outdoor). For the indoor part of the gym, I wasn't able to use my speedlite because there were other gym users and at the same time, I didn't want my subjects to be too conscious in front of the camera.

Business Branding 2: Disinfectant

The purpose of this photoshoot is to create images for the website of Disinfectant. Disinfectant provides disinfecting services for businesses to combat the pandemic.

The scope of this project was to capture the team/ group photographs to showcase to their potential clients. Next was to capture the team doing the actual disinfecting work at various locations to showcase their projects and types of clients.

Since it was a large group photoshoot, I had to set up two lights and softboxes, especially at a very dim location. The toughest part of the photoshoot was having to visit various locations. I faced another huge challenge to capture the mist of the disinfecting spray. I also had to coordinate with the videographer. Nevertheless, we had a very tight schedule due to the number of locations.

Quick Explanation of Photography Costs

I've streamlined my photography packages to be wallet-friendly, ensuring you get the best value. The most considerable portion of my photography cost is calculated based on:

  1. Duration booked: it includes changing of equipment, wardrobe, makeup, hairstyle and travelling during the shoot.
  2. Equipment required: natural light vs flash.
  3. Type of editing: basic vs advanced.
  4. Copyright/privacy: there's a fee should you don't want the photos to be published anywhere.
  5. Extensiveness of planning required.
  6. Special requests/ add-ons & surcharges.

Please read the full explanations so that you can make a better decision.

Special Requests

I've tailored these special requests and add-ons to cater to the unique tastes of my past clients, ensuring each voyage is personalised. The inclusion of these options aims to dissuade similar requests and, importantly, not as a means for me to pocket extra income from my future clients.

Think of it as a bespoke service, crafted with your preferences in mind rather than a cunning plan to boost the treasure chest.

Surcharges

Picture this – I'm here to offer you a good experience without breaking the bank. But, when a project starts encroaching on my personal space or health or requires any additional cost, a surcharge is the reality check. No beating about the bush – it's a straightforward acknowledgment of the extra effort.

It's about ensuring a top-notch journey. Your support in grasping this aspect ensures our photography sail stays steady. Ready to roll with this clarity? Your agreement is the fuel that powers our creative engine.

For the uncommon surcharges, do look through the full list of surcharges to avoid miscommunications.

Turnaround Time

Turnaround time depends on various factors, such as:

  1. The number of photos taken
  2. The workload of the photographer
  3. The type of editing required
  4. The quantity of photos requested
  5. The condition of the venue

Generally, if the client needs to choose the photos, it will take up to two weeks for the photographer to sift through and eliminate bad and duplicate shots. The remaining photos are then provided to the clients in a low-resolution PDF file. After the client makes the selection, it will take up to a month for basic editing or two months for advanced editing before the final photos are returned.

Skai follows the practice of reviewing the photos with a fresh mind every one to three days to ensure the highest possible quality. This significant effort places him at a disadvantage in terms of profit. Therefore, clients should appreciate the value of receiving meticulously edited photos, even if it means a slight delay.

In most cases, especially when the number of photos is limited, the final edited photos can be returned much earlier without compromising quality.

For more information, read photography editing time explained.

Skai's Business Branding Photography

How Skai Began Doing Business Branding Photography

Embarking on the journey of business branding photography was not a mere happenstance; it evolved from a confluence of roles and a genuine passion for making a positive impact.

In my capacity as a web producer managing multiple websites, the desire to integrate professional and creative photographs into the branding equation took root. However, as a solo operator with a dedicated focus on my photography website, the challenge of logistics loomed large. While adept at capturing natural interactions behind the lens, the tables turned when I needed to step into the frame. Despite these struggles as a small business owner, my empathy for fellow entrepreneurs ignited a desire to leverage my expertise to assist others.

The turning point came through diverse photoshoot projects for various corporate clients over the years. Through this extensive experience, I gained a profound understanding of the diverse photographic needs of different companies. Recognising the power of visuals in shaping a brand, I naturally transitioned into offering suggestions to clients when they approached me for their corporate photoshoots.

This evolution in my approach became a wellspring of inspiration. Witnessing the positive impact of tailored advice on my clients, I felt compelled to offer a comprehensive solution. This led to the inception of one-stop photography services designed to cater to the multifaceted needs of businesses. Beyond capturing moments, my goal became providing strategic advice that could elevate their brand through the lens.

In essence, the journey into business branding photography is a testament to the fusion of passion, experience and a genuine desire to empower fellow businesses. It's not just about taking pictures; it's about using my skills and knowledge to help businesses shine. After all, making a positive impact while doing what I love is the ultimate fulfilment of this photographic odyssey.

Why Skai Love Doing Business Branding Photography

What's the deal with my passion for diving into the world of business branding photography? Well, it's a cocktail of reasons that keep me hooked and grinning behind the lens.

First and foremost, there's this infectious joy that comes from helping others and basking in their appreciation. Providing business branding photography services isn't just about capturing moments; it's about showcasing my fair share of knowledge and utilising it to illuminate the essence of fellow businesses. The satisfaction that comes from knowing I've contributed to their visual identity and left a positive impact is the kind of fuel that keeps this photographic engine running.

Then, let's talk variety. One of the perks that light up my day is the diverse array of photography projects that come my way. From the sleek world of corporate portraits to the vibrant tapestry of different businesses, I get to flex my creative muscles across the board. Portraits, in particular, are my forte, and having the chance to craft captivating visuals in this arena is like hitting the sweet spot.

But here's the twist – business branding, although a fascinating realm, is something I'm genuinely interested in but often find myself swamped with my daily work. Time becomes a luxury. However, the little nuggets of knowledge I've amassed along the way find their way into my own business ventures, creating a subtle yet impactful imprint.

It's not just about the photos; it's about the conversations. Engaging with business owners, hearing their stories and learning from their experiences is a treasure trove of insights. Each chat becomes a chance to understand the intricacies of their brand and it adds layers to my understanding. It's a two-way street where I not only bring my expertise to the table but also absorb the richness of their entrepreneurial journey.

In essence, business branding photography is a love affair amidst the chaos. It's a playground where passion meets creativity and even in the hustle, the joy of connection and contribution keeps the flame alive. Limited time may be the reality, but the moments captured behind the lens transcend the clock. It's not just about what I do; it's about the stories I help businesses tell, and that's what makes this photographic journey truly worthwhile. So, why do I love it? Because in the midst of the rush, it's a canvas where every click is a brushstroke of connection and creativity. What's not to love about that, even when time is at a premium?

What is Businesses Branding Photography?

Business branding photography is a strategic visual practice that aids businesses in enhancing their corporate image. The term "corporate image" encompasses the overall perception people, including other businesses, vendors and consumers, hold when the company's name is mentioned. This perception may encapsulate various aspects, such as business ethics, product or service quality, and other critical facts that define the company in the eyes of the public.

The foundational step in business branding involves the creation of professional photographs designed to cultivate a positive business image. These images serve as a visual representation of the company, fostering a sense of trust and resonance among potential customers. By presenting a polished and appealing visual identity, businesses aim to make potential customers feel comfortable and establish a connection with the company's values, products or services. In essence, business branding photography plays a pivotal role in shaping the initial impressions and perceptions that individuals, businesses and consumers form about a company.

What is Business Branding Photography also Known as?

Business branding photography is known by various synonymous terms, including corporate photography, commercial photography and brand photography. While these terms may be used interchangeably, they all refer to the practice of creating visual content tailored to represent a business in a polished and impactful manner.

Why is Business Branding Photography Important?

Business branding photography holds significant importance as it directly influences the corporate image of a company, impacting its relationships with business partners, vendors and consumers. The corporate image, shaped by visual elements, plays a pivotal role in determining whether other businesses would be willing to collaborate with the company and if consumers would lend their support to its products and services.

The visual representation of a business, particularly on its website, carries weight. Low-quality images not only leave a poor impression on visitors but may also convey a perception of the company's overall health and success. This visual impact can significantly affect the confidence of potential customers in making purchases. Given the substantial investments made in research and development or product acquisition, cutting corners on photography may undermine the perceived value of these efforts.

Moreover, effective marketing, whether through search engines or social media, relies heavily on a well-established corporate branding foundation. If the basic elements of corporate image, conveyed through compelling photography, are not adequately addressed, the effectiveness of marketing initiatives may be compromised. In essence, business branding photography acts as a pivotal factor in shaping perceptions, influencing partnerships and bolstering consumer trust, ultimately determining the success and credibility of a business in a competitive landscape.

The Goals of Business Branding Photography

The goals of business branding photography are multifaceted, working in tandem to fortify a company's position in the market and foster a robust connection with its audience. First and foremost, business branding photography seeks to enhance brand recognition. Through carefully curated images that encapsulate the essence of the brand, this form of photography strives to create a visual imprint that ensures consumers readily identify and remember the business.

Establishing a positive brand image is another pivotal goal of business branding photography. By capturing images that resonate with the brand's values, it aims to evoke positive emotions and perceptions among the target audience. This positive association contributes to building trust and credibility, vital components in cultivating lasting relationships with clients and stakeholders.

Conveying the unique identity of a business stands as a fundamental objective. Business branding photography endeavours to tell a visual story that sets the company apart from competitors. Whether through showcasing the manufacturing process, highlighting the team or capturing the product/service in action, the goal is to communicate the distinctive qualities that make the business stand out in its industry.

Beyond mere recognition, the aim is to evoke specific emotions tied to the brand. Emotional resonance is a powerful tool in building brand loyalty. Through images that strike a chord with the audience, business branding photography seeks to foster a sense of connection and loyalty, encouraging repeat business and advocacy.

The ultimate goal is to differentiate the business in a crowded market, shaping perceptions and leaving a lasting impression on the target audience. Business branding photography is not merely about capturing moments; it's about crafting a visual narrative that speaks to the heart of the brand, creating a compelling and enduring presence in the minds of consumers.
