Creating Professional Photos with Picoftasty Photography
A Step-By-Step Workflow Guide
Throughout the process, we will communicate regularly with the client to ensure that their needs and expectations are being met. The workflow may be adjusted or customized based on the specific needs of the client or the project.
If you have questions, please feel free to reach out via
1. Initial consultation
2. Styling and preparation
3. Creative direction and consulting
The photographer meets/emeets with the client to discuss the project, including the type of products to be photographed, the desired style and aesthetic, and any specific requirements or constraints.
This involves preparing the products for the photo shoot, including cleaning, arranging, and positioning them in a way that best showcases their features and benefits.
This involves working with clients to determine the best approach for showcasing their products, including selecting the best angle, lighting, and composition for the product images.
To align the creative direction, here's what we do:
We will draft a shooting plan according to your requirements
A quick call to discuss the shooting plan, revise the details and Finalize the plan.
Stay in touch. There'll be problems during the photo shoot. We always ask before we do.
4. Customized packages
5. Production & Post-processing
6. Turnaround time
Customized packages based on the specific needs of clients, including the number of products to be photographed, the number of images required, and the level of editing and retouching required.
When your products arrive in our studio, we’ll contact you to let you know. Now that we have your products on-hand, we will go over the details of your order and discuss with you any questions or concerns you may have before we start. Once payment is processed, we’ll start shooting your photos.
Post-processing: The photos are processed using software to adjust the color, brightness, and other factors to achieve the desired look and feel. If the client has specific requirements for post-processing, such as color grading or retouching, these will be communicated to the photographer.
- Most projects are delivered in about 2 weeks, excluding holidays, from when we receive your products and payment. If your project involves a large number of photos this may add to the production time.
If a quicker turnaround is needed, rush service may also be available. A 7-day rush can be added to any package (based on availability) for $325. During particularly busy periods lead times may increase slightly, so please feel free to contact us and we’ll be glad to confirm expected production times.
8. Project Complete!
Once your photos are ready and meet our standards for delivery, we’ll post them in a private online gallery where you can view and download them immediately. We keep your photos available online for 3 months, so you can come back and download them anytime.
If you’d like to make any changes or additions (additional charge may apply)
What if I would like an image to be re-shot?
If we’ve made a mistake we will gladly re-shoot or edit the photos to make them right, no charge.
Re-shoots for artistic or editorial reasons, or resulting from client error or omission will be quoted at the time of the change request.
When the project is complete, we’ll discard the products if you don’t want them back. Or please let us know if you would like the products returned to you, we’ll carefully pack up and ship them back to you. Shipping fees can be included on your invoice or charged to your UPS or FedEx account.
