Momentous

August 30, 2011  •  Leave a Comment




This was my very first try at commercial photography.  I have heard before from other photographers (who don't do commercial work, obviously) that commercial photography was repetitive, not creative and downright boring.  Now that I have tried it, I must say that this is absolutely not true.  While certainly not as free as fine art photography, I did not find the experience any more constraining than a portrait session, for example.

Momentous is a moving, removal and storage company.  They are present is several locations in the UK, including London.  They are also part of an international group of removal companies and they wished to have photographs clearly showing their presence in London.  So early on a Sunday morning, we headed down to town and took pictures of some of their vans with easily recognised landmarks.

The photo shoot itself did not take long at all, even though we took photographs at three distinct locations.  What did take a long time, though, was the scouting I have done during the preceding week.  This made a huge difference; I knew exactly where to position myself on the day of the shoot and I could even direct the drivers appropriately as to which lane to use in order to get the best angle of their vans.  So if some of you ever find that the rates for commercial photography are high, please do remember that there is usually more work done after and before the shoot that is included in the price.

I was told that their new brochure, that will include many of my photographs, will be available soon.  I just can’t wait to see it! ;)

This is exactly the type of “Lifestyle” commercial photography that I want to offer to some of my customers.  As a portrait photographer, I can of course do professional headshot and group shots of you and your staff as well.
