Where Should We Shoot My Brand Photos?

December 2, 2020

We have two different kinds of brand photo shoots that we offer to small business owners. One of those options is to meet up in-person to take your brand photos. Side note: the other options is a mail-in option, and it’s exactly what it sounds like. You can click here to read more about those.

A question we get all of the time from our clients before their brand photo sessions is,

“Where should my brand photo session take place?”

like, 100% of our clients

Where we shoot your brand photos actually depends on a couple of different things. Let’s hop right into it!

The scale of your brand photo shoot

How big is you shoot? Are we talking about photos involving multiple people? Or a whole styled set (like in a kitchen, an outdoor seating space, or any larger space that is on-brand for you)? Furthermore, are you hiring a hair and makeup team to be on-set during your shoot? Lastly, do you need to be in your specific workspace in order to take your photos (like a workshop or utility room with your immovable tools + equipment)? If so, we recommend renting a bright studio space or Airbnb for your brand photos. We can also work in your existing workspace if it allows enough natural light in through the windows. We always chat with our clients before they book about where we are going to shoot based on how big their shoot will be, but generally speaking, if you’re interested in:

  • full-body photos
  • photos with more than 2 people
  • photos in your space (which may include immovable equipment/ tools)

we will be shooting on-location somewhere other than our in-home studio office space. Rent a space or we’ll come to you!

The kinds of brand photos that we will be shooting

If we’re shooting flat lay photos, headshots, small scale product photos, tight-cropped process photos, detail photos, or anything that can essentially take place in our in-home studio office space, that’s exactly where we will shoot. The studio is just south of downtown Houston. As it is a smaller space, we recommend getting your hair and makeup done before arriving instead of on-set, if that’s something you will be doing. If your shoot is:

  • small scale
  • includes either headshots, tight-crop photos, waist-up photos
  • small product photos

then your shoot can take place at our place. You can click here to see some past photos taken at our home studio office.

Even though this probably clears up the question pretty clearly, we still make sure to chat with clients while in the planning process of their shoots to determine every aspect of the shoot, including location. If you’re ready to elevate your online presence with stellar marketing photos (regardless of where we will be shooting), get in touch!

We are so excited to hear from you.
