Personal Branding Photography creates a clear, consistent story about what you offer your customers. Dr. Nadine Greiner is an expert in organizational development, executive coaching and leadership development. For her website she wanted to communicate her unique set of skills to her target audience.
Each of the six main web pages required a banner page. Dr. Nadine had specific ideas about what each of the photos was to show. She needed a photographer to create her vision. She engaged SRK Headshot Day for a four hour personal branding photography session. We immediately went to work to create an extensive shot list and deck of sample images to make sure we could create the 16 images she needed for her website, book cover and collateral materials. After several meetings by phone we had a shot list and a Pinterest page with images. With the help of Dr. Nadine’s web designer, this group was narrowed down with a specific description and example for each photo and our shot list. A shot list is critical to the success of a photo session because the whole team and client has a roadmap to the final product.
Wardrobe, Makeup and Preparation are Critical to a Great PBP Session
We discussed wardrobe and locations. We created a photo schedule with all locations near our San Francisco studio. This allowed us to get the work done in the allocated time. The day of the photo session, Nadine came 30 minutes early to her session for makeup with our makeup artist. During the day we updated her hair and makeup to coordinate with wardrobe and the mood for each photo.
The day proceeded smoothly and on schedule thanks to our producer, Patricia Kline, who was present to keep us on track and organized. Within three days of completion of photography Dr. Nadine received her proofs via Dropbox. These were divided into different folders by subject with favorites of the photographer, Scott R. Kline, highlighted in a separate Scott_Faves folder to aid in her final selections.
All Your Website Photos in just 4 Hours of Photography
Nadine quickly made her selections for editing. All final photos were returned a week later retouched and cropped for the website based on the specifications of her web designer. This was important because Nadine’s website was ready to go except for the photographs. We cropped many of the photos for use on social media, making it simple to post images on LinkedIn, Instagram and Facebook. Dr. Nadine also received full-sized images of all photos for printing.
Dr. Nadine summed up her experience in this recommendation: “SRK Headshot Day provided high-touch service and high-quality creative images, both indoors and outdoors. At the outset, Scott and Patricia listened to my ideas and collaborated easily to materialize what I had in mind. The team ran the day like the experienced professionals that they are. From the logistics manager to the makeup artist, each team member is talented, easy to work with, and efficient…and they all get along fabulously which really helps when it is a long day! Oh, and the studio music rocks!”
