Before your photoshoot

Much of the success of your photoshoot depends on the thinking and preparation done beforehand.

Thorough research and planning can really help you optimise the results of your photoshoot – and avoid many problems.

  • writing a good brief for the photographer
  • getting the necessary permission – from individual subjects and from managers of locations
  • logistics - some important details in scheduling and communicating with the people involved in your shoot
  • technical advice about storyboarding and styling
