2020 has certainly been an unusual mix of work for us here at Luke Granger Photography; with most of our couples postponing their weddings we have had plenty of opportunities to work alongside lots of new and returning corporate business clients. As we offer such a wide range of photography services; photo, video, 360 tours just to name a few, we are certainly kept busy and love that no two days are ever the same.
There have been some fantastic commercial photography projects that we have been involved in and I have selected a few to share with our readers to showcase some of our commercial photography work.
School Portrait Photography
Our relationship with Springhead Park Primary School has grown significantly over the last few months and it has been great getting to know the children and staff within our local community.
The school itself opened its doors for the first time in September proving to be a fantastic primary school setting for local families like us; we have since taken professional headshots for the staff, individual photographs of the children and even made a welcome video to introduce the school to others.
We love that we have naturally become the schools resident photographer and have plenty of projects planned alongside them for 2021.
Off the back of our relationship with Springhead Park Primary School, we were asked to visit the school on behalf of Viirro who are the design team behind the popular TagEvac®, the leading emergency evacuation system. Viirro's brightly branded hand sanitiser stations are designed to capture the attention of visitors to local businesses, schools and organisations encouraging all to reduce the spread of Covid-19.
Using our commercial photography skills, we used the school to showcase the sanitiser station in a real life setting. Our models had a great time demonstrating how they use their rocket themed station during the school day and the team now have a wide range of photographs to use for future marketing campaigns.
We were asked to visit this amazing property in Whitstable by the company who manufactured the aluminium doors and windows used during its recent refurbishment.
The sleek, modern design of the windows certainly deserved to be showcased in a professional photoshoot and that contrasting door really adds something different to the home. We were happy to use both our internal and external property photography skills to help the company promote their high quality products. I'm sure you can agree the property looks fantastic and the homeowners have a beautiful home.
Property Photography can be used to sell so much more than just a property itself.
Seasonal Marketing Photoshoot
One of our existing housing developers asked us to help communicate a warm and friendly Christmas message to their customers this year. Showcasing how their properties make a wonderful home for a family Christmas, we went for a traditional theme incorporating children playing well loved games, hanging decorations and generally enjoying family life.
Themed commercial photoshoots like these can be used in so many different ways such as tv commercials, social media content and printed brochures. As photographers we love getting involved with creating a fun photoshoot for everyone and our clients loved the results of our work.
Traditional Product Photography
We have recently launched a new business called Next Level Poles and needed some professional photographs of our new products; thankfully we had just the man for the job! Used primarily within the property, construction and pest control industries (as an alternative to using drones, ladders and/or scaffolding) our telescopic inspection poles are already becoming popular. Luke designed these himself so they have been developed from an end users point of view and are a great tool to capture at height views in a safe and efficient way.
These photos were taken in a traditional style, ensuring continuity across the range and I am sure you agree look very professional. If you have any products that need photographing, do get in touch and we will happily discuss the different options available.
Product Placement Photography
When it comes to marketing products, it's important to showcase each item you sell professionally; therefore why wouldn't you use a professional photographer to create your marketing content?
We find that products photographed in a lifestyle setting tend to speak for themselves, customers are far more engaged and the location can be chosen to fit within any brand. No hard sell is needed when a customer can visualise how a product would work for them and a shot taken on a phone really won't do your products the justice they deserve.
Food photography is far more complex than many would appreciate, however we are always up for a challenge and loved capturing these professional photographs for a small bakery business local to us in Northfleet, Kent.
The cakes themselves tasted delicious (one of the perks to the job) and it was great to experiment with different lighting techniques and placements.
If you have any products you would like us to photograph, do get in touch as we would love to help create marketing content for your business.
Alternatives Forms of Photography & Videography
Videography can be a fantastic tool when used correctly across different platforms.
As a marketing tool, Videography is used regularly on social media & television advertisements or alongside professional photographs to showcase a property being listed for sale. Alternatively, creating professional content can assist/improve training and internal processes within a business, help secure funding for a project or share the successes of an event.
Professional Live Streaming Service
The demand for our live streaming service has been required by many clients recently. Reducing the need to travel and physical human interaction, live streaming has helped overcome the difficulties that social distancing restrictions have caused. Using a wide range of equipment we have allowed people to attend events, clients to interact and families connect with one another; all from the safety of their homes.
Live Streaming a funeral across the world to relatives unable to travel and documenting home renovations for an overseas client have all been possible this year. We intend to expand this area of work in the future and already have some live streaming projects in the pipeline.
360 Virtual Tours
When the world is full of travel restrictions, social distancing measures and a strong message to "Stay Home" our 360 virtual tours are a fantastic solution for many industries to continue showcasing what they have to offer.
Whether your clients are shortlisting wedding venues, choosing a new home, an office or taking a closer look at a school for their children, our 360 virtual tours are a fantastic way to conquer these restrictions, enabling viewers to navigate around at their leisure. Using this up and coming technology to promote your business will certainly set you apart from your competitors. feel free to get in touch to discuss if you would like to see an example of our work.
Commercial Photographer In Kent
It's safe to say, we are certainly one of the most diverse photographers in Kent, offering multiple photography services across different industries such as 360 virtual tours and live-streaming service. Many photographers in Kent and across the country, solely offer property photography, wedding OR commercial photography however we are proud that we are equipped and skilled to be able to offer all three; adapting our skills to the needs of our customers.
By combining the experience within those areas of the industry alongside aerial photography and videography (plus our design and printing services) we are proud to offer a complete and efficient service to all our clients no matter the size of the project. We look forward to being part of many more exciting projects as we grow our family business and look forward to working with both new and returning clients throughout 2021.
