Planning Meeting

After you’ve contacted an experienced commercial photographer, it’s a good idea to set up a time to discuss your project. At this meeting, you should go through your shot list and discuss the details such as location, date and time of the shoot, and other considerations such as clothing considerations for anyone being photographed, and important contact people. Also make sure to discuss preparing your workplace for the photo session itself.
