BRIEFS

Briefs are the main guidelines and MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) between customer and photographer.
In other words, a photography brief is a summary of agreements and requirements between the client and the photographer. This piece of document is what will ensure the success and effectiveness of the shoot or project.
The photographic brief must indicate the following information:
  1. Specify angles for every image or scene in the video
  2. Specify lighting requirements (inc. shadows, highlights, and type of lighting preferred)
  3. Specify color requirements (Some products may appear different during the shoot. Especially, glossy, transparent, or items with a special coating. So, if you have certain requirements you must state them in the brief)
  4. Let the photographer know if you have any specific requirements regarding the shoot. Any information that was not provided in advance, can not be used as a claim for a refund policy
Without the photography brief, ensuring the smooth flow of the project will be difficult. And the client and photographer may not be in sync with each other, especially in terms of creative and business goals.

This does not include the time the photographer spends on technical preparation and lighting setup. We love clients to be present during the photoshoot or via live stream. It helps us ensure we are aligned with your marketing strategy. But we operate under time constraints because we get a lot of orders every day. After technical preparations for photo sessions, we provide an extra 15 minutes per image for the client to try out different ideas, which is more than enough in most cases. Occasionally a client requests more time to decide, consult their manager or ask for a friend’s opinion. To accommodate this, we charge clients wishing extra time a small additional fee of $25 per 15 minutes.
