Specialist Studio Practice 3 – Professional Practice


External Job – The Great British Deli (Product Shots)

Joyce Neil, owner of The Great British Deli, was referred to me through owner of Cheeky sew and sew (another external opportunity). She required product photographs for her website.  I invited another photographer, a peer from my studies to help with the job as he has more knowledge within the area due to product shots been his main focus of photography. I have been coordinating with Joyce discussing details and making arrangements.The photographs were taken upon location within the shop itself, there was a misunderstanding with what products we thought we would be photographing however this allowed us to express our professionalism and adapt to the situation. Between us we have edited all the photographs (80+), resized them for web and passed them back on to Joyce. She has paid us a small fee for the work and we are planning to work together in the future.

From this opportunity I have learnt that communication is a key element to working professionally. Knowing exactly what you are photographing, how much you are photographing and the location you are photographing in will keep you organised, efficient and professional on the job. As well as this you must be aware of the job load you have taken on (daily job/processing time/final touches), be realistic with the time scale you can complete the job in.
