Staff photography that shows off the great team you have on board
Today I was taking some staff photography for a new craft supplies store in Yeovil; a new Hobbycraft shop. If you’d like to go and visit, you can find it in the Houndstone Retail Park in Yeovil, BA22 8YQ.
The staff photos taken today were to show what a great team there is at Hobbycraft and to also promote the opening of the new shop. The photos will be used in print, online and in social media to tell everyone of all the great things they can find at the new Hobbycraft store.
I was asked to get a photo of each staff member and show them in their area of expertise. The photos of the staff needed to be clear and bright, and with smiley, friendly staff.
I don’t think I have ever come across anyone who is grumpy, everyone is always happy to work with me, even if they might be a bit shy at first in front of the camera. I try and bring out the best in the people I photograph and always aim to make them feel comfortable as I take their photo. I reassure them that I want to get show off their best side just as much as they do, and any photos that don’t do that won’t be picked.
The group shot (which was actually one of the last shots) is always the one that takes the longest. It’s important to get all the staff in place as quickly as possible and to show people clearly in the photo. Not particularly easy though when the sun was going in and out of the clouds and we needed to stand in the path of cars in the car park to get this angle.
When entering the store, I introduced myself and signed in. I then met the rest of the staff and explained what I had been asked. I said the staff photography needed to be friendly and show off each person’t skills. We then went through the shop to each member of staff’s position of expertise and used a few props.
Susan loves all things wool and is the expert in that section.
Tracey is the person to go to for how to create colourful cross stitch designs.
Kim will help you with all your sewing needs.
Lily likes to work with the intricate details of home made jewellery.
Vicky is a dab hand with a paint brush and colourful tubes of paint are her area.
Ellie is the person to ask about cutting out all sorts of designs with one of these marvellous Cricut machines.
Ask Mel about wreath making and she will have the answers for you.
