Commercial Photography

Commercial photography involves taking pictures for commercial use: for example in adverts, merchandising, and product placement. Commercial photography is also used in corporate brochures and leaflets, menus in cafes and restaurants, and similar commercial uses where photographs enhance a text. Commercial photography is used to promote or sell a product or service. There are a number of ways that photographs can be used to better market products and corporations. For photographers who excel at commercial photography, it can be a very lucrative market, and the field of commercial photography is broad, with room for traditional and alternative photographs.

Products Photography

While there are certain ways you can pose a subject in human photography, the same does not hold true for product photography. You can not mold the product, but instead you have to use your camera and lighting to highlight its key features. In order for the client to be content with your work, you must produce a quality photo that is able to sell.

Portfolio

If you are nervous about presenting your portfolio to a potential client, stop worrying. Your chances of getting a job are probably already high, and all you need to do is prove to the client that you are the best candidate for the position. Here are a few tips to get you started--and possibly get you the job.

Step One - Research the Company

Whenever you apply for a job or give a presentation, you should always research the company. Find out what products and services they offer, learn about their culture, and see what their goals are. If you research the company, you'll have a better idea of how to dress and present your work during your presentation.

Step Two - Rehearse Your Presentation

You need to practice in order to convince others and yourself that you are worth hiring. Before you rehearse your presentation, think about the things that make your services unique. Ask yourself, "How can I help my future client achieve their goals?" Once you have everything together, present it to your friends and family until everyone gives you the seal of approval.

Step Three - Tailor Your Portfolio to the Client's Needs

Your client is the most important person in this whole scheme. When you present your portfolio, include 20 images that cater exactly to your client's industry, products or services. If you just give them a general portfolio that has nothing to do with their industry, they will be less likely to call you back, even if your pictures are good.

9 Presentation Tips for Photographhy Portfolios

If you are nervous about presenting your portfolio to a potential client, stop worrying. Your chances of getting a job are probably already high, and all you need to do is prove to the client that you are the best candidate for the position. Here are a few tips to get you started--and possibly get you the job.

Step One - Research the Company

Whenever you apply for a job or give a presentation, you should always research the company. Find out what products and services they offer, learn about their culture, and see what their goals are. If you research the company, you'll have a better idea of how to dress and present your work during your presentation.

Step Two - Rehearse Your Presentation


You need to practice in order to convince others and yourself that you are worth hiring. Before you rehearse your presentation, think about the things that make your services unique. Ask yourself, "How can I help my future client achieve their goals?" Once you have everything together, present it to your friends and family until everyone gives you the seal of approval.

Step Three - Tailor Your Portfolio to the Client's Needs


Your client is the most important person in this whole scheme. When you present your portfolio, include 20 images that cater exactly to your client's industry, products or services. If you just give them a general portfolio that has nothing to do with their industry, they will be less likely to call you back, even if your pictures are good.

Step Four - Hit Them With Your Best Shot


When you choose images for your portfolio, make sure you use the best pictures out of your archive, and make sure they cater to your client's specific needs. If you include grainy, overexposed or out of focus images only because they have meaning to you, your client will not call you back after the presentation. Put your best face forward and show them clear, in-focus photos that will prove that you can fulfill their needs.


You will also want to consider dressing the part. When you step into your client's office to give your presentation, they will make a decision about who you are before you even open your mouth. Wear a nice suit and put your photos in a nice, black leather-bound presentation binder.

Step Five - Tell A Story

One of the best ways to differentiate yourself is to create a portfolio that tells a story. People like to see forward progression, so show your clients how you have developed as a photographer. Stories are more interesting and appealing when they have a smooth, visual flow, so make sure yours is as smooth as silk.

Step Six - Present Your Work in Categories

If you want to tell a story with multiple chapters, make sure all your chapters are grouped together appropriately. An author would not put half of chapter 15 in the middle of chapter 25, and neither should you. When you divide pictures into categories, your portfolio will appear more organized and cohesive, which will reflect well upon you.

Step Seven - Show Your Enthusiasm

Excitement is contagious. If you are excited about your portfolio and the possibility of working with your potential client, they will also be excited about you.

Step Eight - Make Eye Contact

Part of your job as a presenter is to engage your clients, which involves charisma and eye contact. If you do not make eye contact with your potential clients, you lessen your chances of interesting them.

Step Nine - Follow Up and Follow Through

As soon as you have finished your presentation, thank everyone for meeting with you. Leave a lasting impression by sending them a "thank you" email that highlights the basic points of your presentation. Follow up and if you promise that you are going to do something; do it.

ABOUT ME

MyLife:
I was born in the year 1978 and hail from the land of culture, dreams and cinema...INDIA. Born into an artistic family that appreciated the beauty of life i nurtured a strong liking for nature and all that's beautiful. I wondered what I could do to keep the vivid pictures I saw, intact for life and thus started a lifelong relationship with the camera.

My fascination for all things beautiful led me to photography and in turn it helped me capture all those perfect moments in this world and make them immortal.

The love for the camera made me step into the world of visual communication and I finally majored in B.SC Visual Communication from one of the prominent colleges in the city in the year 2003. And that marked the day my hobby transformed into my profession.

My Footsteps so far:
As I look back I recall the times from clicking moments for the sheer love of it to the present... I have indeed travelled a long way.
I started off with press photography and have freelanced for some of the most prominent press groups such as the VIKATAN GROUP,MALIKAI,KUMUTHAM,KALKI,CINE FASHION,TAMIL MURASU and RADIAL PRESS.
However like life would have it, I searched for something more. Something that would quench my thirst for clicking away BEAUTY. My search ended with the FASHION AND CINEMA INDUSTRY.

The fashion boom and the love for the beauty, the colours, the clothes and the aura of the industry, lured me into FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY and the CINE Industry needs no explanation. I am a FASHION & CINE PHOTOGRAPHER now. And like always the industry gives you a handful.

I handle portfolios, publicity shoots, ad campaigns and work extensively with various brands helping them capture images that best reflects their persona. I have contributed photos for the covers of several popular fashion and lifestyle magazines. My efforts and love for photography has been appreciated and i have been lauded with the TAMILNADU PHOTGRAPHERS AWARD for two consecutive years.

Having set up studios in both CHENNAI and MUMBAI, today I shuttle between both cities working on high-profile fashion and advertising campaigns.

With fashion, cinema and photography, casting cannot be long behind. I have helped launching the careers of many budding artists and models. I have been credited for discovering and promoting the careers of many successful actors and models today.

Campaigns:
I have shot campaigns for Chennai Diamonds, Lifeline Group of Hospitals, Ratna Stores,zee tv,jaya tv ,sun tv, Naidu Hall, SM ,Silks, Zion Shirts, V Care Group, Tara Talcum Powders to name a few.
And my celebrity clientele includes some of the big names from the South Indian Film Industry.
Thus, I conclude my little timeline so far and thank you for having the patience to read through. For a peek into my world just click here...
