  • Location 
  • People

  • A chat and brew
1) Time 

A corporate shoot is a very time and cost-consuming task. During a corporate shoot, many things can go wrong, including being short on time, having some of your team members not turning up, and coming up with last-minute creative ideas if the usual concept doesn’t work.

 So that you have to pre-planned the people and the time when you want to shoot and try to make ready the people for that shoot that could help to save a lot of the time in Corporate shoot. 

2) Location 

The majority of photographers have never visited the shoot location several months before the shooting day – and more often than not only days before or a few hours before their photoshoot.

Whether it be parking in strange areas, objects in the background, or people walking through the shot, trying to visit a location can become chaotic and can easily bring your shoot to a halt, which delays your project and costs you more money.

For corporate shoots, we always try and source a room that is the biggest. This is to give us as much freedom to move around without bumping into anything and make the shoot seem more relaxed. 

The shoot was going well, but it turned out we weren’t in my comfort zone, and there was mold on the walls.

3) People

As soon as people know they are having their photos taken, they start to act a certain way. If you give your subject a bit of time to get used to the camera, it will come across in the photo. So briefing the subject is helpful when we need to make sure that the portrait has the impact it needs.

4) A brief

In the corporate shoot, every paper in your bag is heavy, you have a lot of equipment to carry, and you’re working with people and usually in a public place with a time limit. It’s difficult to pull off shots under these circumstances but it can be done. 

5) A chat and brew

So, in the corporate shoot, you should always have a chat with your client. Sometimes they will want to see what it looks like before or after the shoot or may just fancy a brew and a chat! Other times they may want to know what photos could be used for which other products.


These are the few important tips for any production house before going to a corporate shoot. This could help to make smoother your corporate shoot.
