Corporate photography: It’s the small stuff that makes all the difference.

I am commissioned on a very regular basis to take corporate portraiture photographs for clients. This can be one offs for a small local SME in Manchester or regular updates to larger national companies that have a steady turn over of employees.

Now, I have blogged many times about the creative process and having time with the subject matter to get it just right.

Today I am going to talk about the rest of it, by ‘it’ I mean the process of dealing with the client.

I like to think I have a very good working relationship with my clients, I like to put them at ease and provide excellent customer service. I ain’t no diva, I will work with a client on a brief taking their suggestions on board and suggesting many myself that they had not even thought about.

This all helps to keep a good working relationship with clients. It’s all about them and how they look and how they want to be seen. It is not about me and my ego. Some of my clients just like me to what I want which gives a great amount of freedom, but a few clients enjoy being part of the photographic process. 

Don’t get me wrong I do not expect clients to micro manage a photo shoot but working collaboratively on projects, throwing ideas about and ‘playing’ often produces much better results.

I have an excellent client retention due to the fact I provide an excellent customer service which is the key to any business.

If you would like to work together on a photography project and see what we can come up with.
