What can I say about the Executive package other than the sky’s the limit.
A critical difference is the inclusion of a pre-session consultation. At this time we will get to know each other a bit better, discuss your overall aims, discuss options (I do suggest creating a shared Pinterest board of ideas as this will help a lot). We can also arrange models, if required, and tools, equipment and props that we might need. This consultation is best scheduled a few days before the shoot and can be face to face if you can visit the studio (ideal) or over the phone. In order to attain exactly what you want and need from your session, this is a really important part of the process and we encourage you to take advantage of this part of our service. This consultation also gives us an opportunity to answer any questions and put your mind at ease about the shoot.
On the day of the session we aim for around 4 hours in the studio to generally have fun and use a wide variety of lighting and background combinations to produce 20 stunning and unique images to make your business stand out amongst all the rest.
As in all our sessions, initially I will aim get you to relax by explaining the process and setting out a plan.
With this much time we can incorporate some ‘action’ shots. Some examples of action shots could be:
- Posed image studying your mobile phone, or laptop.
- Personal trainer doing exercises (You may need to bring your own equipment/props)
- Masseur giving a massage (bring a friend/colleague to act as model)
- Beautician applying nail varnish or eye lashes (bring a friend/colleague to act as model)
- Craftsman using tools (You may need to bring tools/props)
Just like the Enterprise package the additional time can also allow us to create some great team shots, however great team/group shot take time depending on the size of the group and how well they work as a team. With extra time we can increase the team size. This session is really suitable for larger teams (4-6) if individual shots are required as well. The extra time is spent coaching and arranging everyone into a pleasing composition and ensuring that you are all lit evenly. We will take some shots and you will be able to view the results, within seconds, on a larger screen. Using these we’ll make adjustments to their positions, expressions and placement of arms or legs. We will take plenty of shots to ensure a good expression on everyone’s face. This helps us to minimise the chances of catching a blink or grimaces. Even if we do the extra images can be merged in post production to eliminate them.
As in all our sessions we will have some fun whilst still achieving our overall objective.
Once the dust has settled on the studio session I will take the chosen images and apply a basic retouching. This includes colour balancing, and removal of any non-permanent blemishes (shaving nicks, spots, etc.). I will also add a little bit of my secret editing recipe to enhance the images to make you look your absolute best.However, in this package all 20 images can then have additional advanced retouching. This can include:
- compositing more than one images together e.g. adding backgrounds,
- Hollywood/cinema style colour grading,
- adding textures to the background,
- adding extra lighting effects such as window shadows,
- extending background to allow space for text,
- full beauty retouching,
- creating dark moods,
- adding sunlight/lens flare.
This is what makes this service stand out from others. The sky is the limit and this is included within the package.
Your chosen images, along with any others I think may be useful from the shoot, will be added to a secure online gallery. The retouched images will be available for proofing and up to 2 revisions are included. Your chosen images can be downloaded and any additional images, you may like, ordered.
