PRE-PRODUCTION PLANNING


Your PHOTO shoot is almost here!! Start getting excited!


BUT FIRST….

In order to ensure a smooth shoot-day, we need your help so we can be well prepared before we arrive on-site. Below is a list of needs and arrangements to be made prior to the photography of your architectural project. Each item is important and will make a significant difference in the end-result of the photographs. The cooperation on the part of the property owner/manager is paramount in the success of each image.

Please provide as much information as possible. If you don’t know the answer or it is not applicable to your shoot, simply leave it blank. It’s not the SAT’s so don’t sweat it!

Thank you!

- Katie

Do we have permission or assistance in controlling traffic if needed?
MODELS
Are models needed for the shoot?
This can be anyone from hired talent to project team members, friends & family or even your dog. In fact, dogs are encouraged. ;)
PREP-LIST: - Models should wear appropriate attire for the shoot (casual wear/business casual/business formal, etc.) - Models should bring a few outfit changes if necessary - Avoid small patterned prints (i.e. thin stripes or small checkers like Gingham, Houndstooth or Tattersall) as they tend to look distorted on camera. Bold, solid colors are best. - There is usually a lot of downtime for models during a shoot so please advise them to bring a book or download Candycrush on their phone to prevent utter boredom PLEASE PROVIDE MODEL'S NAME(S), ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE TIME:
