2020 put a bit of a spanner in the works for a lot brand shoots last year, in particular my Seasonal Mini Shoots, so this year I’m playing it safe and rather than doing my Spring shoot sessions, I’m holding off and running Summer mini brand shoots and Festive Winter mini brand shoots.
But for those of you who are unsure what a Seasonal Mini Brand Shoot is, and why it’s actually the perfect addition to your brand imagery and business, I thought I’d share my tips and advice on them.
Well, whereas my normal brand shoots range from 90 minutes to a half day (and soon to be a full day, watch this space!) the mini shoots are 30 minutes long where I hold a set number of them over a couple of days in pre-determined locations. This is so that we can be super quick and efficient in creating the content for you and your business.
Theses shoots are ideal for specific campaigns or to top up existing imagery. The reason I do them seasonally, is that I believe that our brand images should reflect the seasons so that the imagery you are sharing for your business are relatable and current for that moment in time. This is particularly the case when it comes to thinking about your festive marketing messages, for instance your email or social media banner images – having festive imagery grabs the attention of your audience as it’s relatable to where they are when they see it.
This is one of the exciting bits for me, I explore various areas in London, so that over the course of the 2 days of mini shoots, only 2-3 of those shoots will take place in one area of London. Meaning that everyone who attends the shoots doesn’t end up with the same locations in their photos.
These are carefully planned so that logistically the day runs smoothly and that we can explore those areas within our shoot time. When the diary is opened up, each time slot has the area of London the shoot will take place in, so you know the sort of vibe that can be created in your shoot.
Once you’re booked on to your shoot, you’ll be sent my signature shoot preparation guide, along with a pre-shoot questionnaire that will give me the opportunity to get to know you and your brand a little more. But some of the things to think about are:
My 2021 Seasonal Mini Shoot Session Wait List is now open. The shoot dates will be released in May to the Wait List first, and will take place at the end of July for the summer ones and the start of November for the winter/festive ones.
Until next time,
