Preparing For Your Session

“What can I do before the session?” The number one reason why you should prepare for your session is simple, quality photos. At the end of the day, the client is ultimately in control of their photos. A photographer can only do so much before they start snapping away. If the client is ready or the site is ready to go, it will allow the photographer to focus on the camera and producing the best possible photos. That means more time can be spent in taking photos, rather than preparing for them. Below are tabs of different services that describe what you can do to prepare for your session.

✔ Remove any personal photos, documents, and sensitive materials
✔ Turn on all available lights
✔ Turn off any ceiling fans
✔ Lower toilet seats and remove toilet paper
✔ Remove any trash cans
✔ Remove any pets or anything that can move on its’ own
✔ Tidy up anything you wish to look nice. Please be courteous and don’t make the photographer wait for you to clean up. This may lead to a cancelation of appointment due to the customer because the site was not ready to be photographed.
✔ You, the client, or someone that you place in charge of guiding the photographer needs to be present at the time of arrival. This will ensure that the end product comes out the way you want it.

ACCP’s 3D camera will capture everything that you can see at eye level. So, if you wish to not have it in the scan, remove it or adjust it.

✔ Informing the photographer of any rooms or areas that should be excluded from Capture Services.
✔ Tidy up anything you wish to look nice. Please be courteous and don’t make the photographer wait for you to clean up. This may lead to a cancelation of appointment due to the customer because the site was not ready to be scanned.
✔ Don’t double book the site. If there are other people working at the same site, it becomes next to impossible to scan the site or it will take several additional hours to complete the job. If someone were to walk within view of the camera, it will capture them and the scan will have to be redone.

Looking good for the camera doesn’t happen overnight. For the best quality portraits, prepare ahead of time.

✔ Pick out outfits ahead of time that complements you. A lot of times picking 3 or more colors, other than mono colors, really makes you stand out and look vibrant.
✔ Incorporate your character and personality as props. Every photo has a story to tell. In this case, that is you. So let the photos express you for you. For example, if you play a sport, bring some of your gear to be used as a prop to tell your story.
✔ Location. Location can be the difference between a stock photo that you see in a manual to a photo that is a one of a kind.
✔ If you would like, bring a friend that you’re comfortable around. Photo sessions are not the most natural setting that you’ll be in. Therefore, if you have someone that can make you laugh, the photos will be nothing but genuinely you.
