Photo studios are great places for photography. That sounds like a pretty obvious statement, but really its true. There are plenty of amenities, and everything that Dallas photographer needs for photography. However, doing your next corporate shoot in studio may not always be conducive to your particular needs or schedule concerns.

Here are four reasons to consider having your Dallas corporate photographer come to you:

  1. Time

    Sending staff or executives from your offices may be very consuming of company time. All of the time that is spent trying to get to the shoot and get situated is time that they can spend handling other more important matters. Corporate photo shoots must always be handled very efficiently in order to respect the schedules of those that are being photographed, so shooting onsite can help to do just that. You can also imagine if someone cannot find the location, gets lost or detours somewhere in between your building and the studio. It can become a very expensive proposition if you are moving a lot of people back and forth.
  2. You can’t get away

    Depending on the size of your company, you may have different offices around the city, state, country or even globe. If all schedules have aligned for you all to meet, you are going to want to take advantage of every minute that everyone is together. This means you may only have a few minutes to spare with your Dallas corporate portrait photographer before ducking into the next meeting. If that’s the case, it would be much more convenient to have a Dallas corporate photographers entire setup on location so that you can walk right over to take photos, get the portraits or headshots you need taken, then carry on with business. By shooting on location there is hardly so much as a hiccup in the flow of the days’ itinerary.
  3. Background selection

    Your corporate portrait photographer in Dallas can offer several options when shooting in studio, but shooting at your building or corporate campus may give you an even greater variety. This would be especially true if you have picturesque areas to shoot in. Studio backgrounds would be mostly limited to colored or textured backgrounds, or perhaps green screen, but if you are shooting at your location, you can select between all of those backgrounds and any spaces that you may have onsite. You can even discuss doing a mixture of both with the photographer that is handling your photography and create that many more options for your marketing materials.
  4. You hired an experienced location photographer

    By enlisting the services of a photographer who is experienced in handling all manner of photo shoots on location, you will have someone that knows what they are doing, and most importantly, knows how to plan to have everything that they will need when they come to your space. They will account as best they can for possible unexpected scenarios, and have all of the photo equipment and lighting that you would expect at a studio. An experienced photographer will also have access to other vendors so that such needs such as hair and makeup can be provided right where you are. Again, no one has to go anywhere, which allows you to maximize productivity and the efficiency of the shoots.

So, for your next shoot, consider talking your corporate portrait photographer in Dallas about having everything shot at your location. It may end up being best for your team to head to a studio for their portrait experience, but by going over what all you are looking for, they can point you in the best direction to go.
