Tear-sheet from the Norwich Extra of the Gym, Norwich which was shot for Archant Norfolk.
Today’s post is a super quick one from commission to publication, something as a professional photographer I have spent many years doing day in and day out.
I was asked by Archant in Norfolk to pop to The Gym in the centre of Norwich which had recently undergone a £500,000 refit and they wanted to publicise their new look.
I was asked on the Monday to see if i was free to take pictures on the Tuesday but they needed the pictures on Wednesday for publication on Thursday.
I had about an hour or so on site, to get in, a quick tour of the facilities and work out where the best places for pictures. I knew what I wanted and it was a case of going to the places I had marked out as getting across the new look and vast array of equipment they have.
Where there were members of the public in the shots using the facilities I let the staff ask if they were ok with being in the pictures, with everyone all saying yes. To finish off the shoot I want to get the friendly staff together before I had to dash to get the pictures out to the client for publication.
So if your business needs photography but doesn’t have much time from idea to getting the end result out in super short time, give me a call.
This job was a really nice brief from a client who wanted a set of portraits and site pictures which were used to promote the Funeral Care Homes in Norwich and Saffron Walden.
For the site shots, internal and external shots were needed of each Funeral Care Home which didn’t take long.
As for the portraits they took a little longer as a range of formal and informal shots were required, they asked for warm and inviting pictures of the staff but also show the serious side of the business.
The resulting images were used for a leaflet drop which were delivered by Royal Mail, an invitation which was created celebrating the first year since Co-Op Funeralcare opened the funeral home and the invitation being re-sized as an A-board poster.
