The importance of working with a team
Ready to consider working with a team?
When you start a business far from the idea of working with a team, you're very focused on yourself, your vision, your thoughts. How you're going to drive everything past the first year while trying to keep a tight budget. It gets to the point where you're spending hours trying to handle WordPress to discover that the template you've just bought is not in line with your branding! Or you've just lost all of you content due to a plugin.
You spend hours trying to design a logo, business cards, write copy for your website, taking photographs for your visual branding. It's great because you are learning so much in the process! Yes, but you also losing so much precious time not chasing clients and focusing on tasks that don't bring any cash in!
No hardship there, it took me a while to understand that getting help would not dimish my work but also help me keep my sanity. Working with a makeup artist on a personal branding photoshoot makes a real difference in how my client feels in front of the camera but also makes the editing so much faster.
Bringing an assistant on board during your location photo shoot keeps every body's mind at peace, not having to think about bags to carry and leaving your valuable in the middle of the pavement trying to get that fully energised photo shoot of you walking down the elegant alleyway.
Having a professional who edits my image is the guarantee that the images that you receive are the best, I'm a photographer, and my skills are best used creating your story and not on hours of editing.
I could add some people to the team to create an amazing experience for your branding photo shoot, a clothes stylist, a florist, a dress designer. I recently took part in a workshop where we had had the opportunity to photograph a styled photo shoot. When working with so many creatives, ideas sparkle and the reality of what we created went beyond imagination.
It took me a while to accept the idea to bring a team to my photoshoot either when working with clients or on a personal branding shoot. I can see the difference when working with a team as I can dedicate my mind a 100% towards your photo shoot rather than thinking about holding a reflector or else! It also gives an amazing experience of having a makeup artist with you for the day and helps you relax on the shoot.
Working with a team might be something new for you tough I guarantee you that it will help focus on your greatest skills set and delegate the task that where you don't excel in, making you an even better performing professional being able to give your best to your clients.
