How do I need to prep for an office photoshoot?

1. Prepare Your Wardrobe

One of the simplest ways to enhance the quality of your shoot is to carefully plan what all the subjects will wear.

2. Prepare Your Hair

Hair is another important consideration. Of course, photos can be edited, but this takes time. Save time and expense by following some simple guidelines for hair.

3. Prepare Your Environment

If your shoot will take place in an office, you may need to schedule a special cleaning day. The camera will pick up every speck of dust on shelves, plants, etc. in your background.

4. Prepare Permission

You will need to make sure you have the proper release forms signed by all subjects in your shoot.

5. Prepare Your Story

Yes, your photo shoot is a story. You have a specific message you want to communicate, or you wouldn’t be investing in a photo or video shoot.

6. Prepare For Business

You may or may not want to schedule your shoot during regular business hours. This can be an important part of your plan since it will impact factors like background noise, background movement, and the availability of your subjects.

What should I wear for a professional headshot?

One of the simplest ways to enhance the quality of your shoot is to carefully plan what you as the subject will wear. Ignoring this can have a seriously negative impact on your finished product. You want to represent yourself in the best possible way, and clothing is very important to the overall tone and quality of your shoot. Here are some tips.

  • Wear ONLY solid colors.
  • Choose neutral, muted, or subdued colors.
  • Do NOT wear green.
  • Coordinate colors and styles with other subjects.
  • Coordinate colors with your background.
  • Make sure the style of your wardrobe matches the impression you want to create.
  • Remember the shoes. Bright pink sneakers are probably not going to work.

What kind of photography is good for social media?

Having professional brand photos can be pivotal for your online & social media presence. You want these photos to show the real you and carry the messaging you want to put forward through your business. A great set of personalized photos will create a lasting impression on your customers and clients. It can help you grow your business and create return customers for years to come.

Our Process

The Plan

We start with the end goal in mind.  What do you want your photos to look like?  We start with a strategy meeting in which we begin to take your project from concept to practical strategy.

The Shoot

We shoot your photos either in house, at our office, or on site. We bring our professional photographers and use our top-of-the-line equipment to capture the perfect shots.

Editing

This is the step in which you see our initial designs and pick the one you like best.  If you are not fully happy with any of them, you may ask for two redesigns.

Delivery

When we have finished designing your new logo, we give you multiple colorized versions of the finished product to ensure that the logo fits when added to multiple mediums.

Finding Your Brand

Brand Identity

When people find a company or business they love, they become loyal to that brand. When this happens, businesses can use their visuals as a marketing device, by consistently displaying them. Many companies do this through social media, email marketing, website etc.

Finding the Right Messaging

McWilliams Media has experienced photographers who understand the importance of producing great photos that show what your company has to offer. We will work with you on deciding what message you want brought to life. Our goal is to produce photos that will make your brand easily recognizable and leave a quick, lasting impression.

Be Relatable

Great photography is critical for a business as it establishes the brand in a manner that customers can visually relate to in a way that graphics or a logo cannot. When a customer or client sees your face or your location, you begin to earn stock with them in a “face-to-face” kind of way. You are the unique difference that people will feel connected to for generations.
