COEUR D'ALENE & SPOKANE
Looking for quality media of people modeling your products? With styled image sessions, you can seasonally gain content for your social profiles & showcase your product or service vibrantly on your website.
Styled photography (also known as 'Style Shoot Photography') is the process of photographing products & services with models.
Style shoots are often done with non-competing businesses at a shared cost. Styled images & video grow more & more popular with time, because it not only gives you the opportunity to show customers what your products & services look like 'in the field', but it also gives you the ability to connect with other small business owners, share the cost of a photo shoot & tag each other on social media platforms for maximum exposure.
There are numerous ways that businesses can take advantage of style shoot photography sessions.
Showcase Your Business: We will capture images & videos of models to showcase your business atmosphere. Whether you own a restaurant, spa, salon, real estate office, boutique shop, etc. this will give future customers an idea of how you operate.
Showcase Your Products: With models holding your food, beverage, or wearing your boutique clothing, future customers will see your product displayed in a very desirable & 'lifestyle' way.
Share The Cost: Purchase a style shoot for your business alone, or contact a non-competing business owner (or two) to collaborate. You share the cost, tag each other on social media for great exposure & ultimately build a meaningful small business community.
Get Noticed: Quality images will have your business standing out from the others. Pair that with a shared style shoot, & you have the ability to build each other up - on social media & in person.
& More: Of course, there are always other opportunities. The possibilities with styled shoots are just about endless.
PACKAGES & PRICING
Styled photography is priced & packaged based on your specific business needs. While some companies may require a shoot at their physical business, other companies, like local boutiques & clothing design companies may want their products on models at various other locations. Some may require a few images, others may require hundreds of images as well as video.

STYLED PHOTOGRAPHY F.A.Q.
What is a styled shoot?
A Styled Shoot involves models wearing your products & showing off your services in a collection of images & videos. Originally created to shoot wedding décor & style, it's a way of showcasing your product "in action."
Does this always involve multiple companies?
No, sometimes it's one business showcasing their products, other times is a group of local non-competing businesses getting together to share the cost of the photoshoot (AND giving themselves the ability to tag each other on social media to maximize their exposure.)
Should I do this with another company?
You definitely don't have to, but it's highly recommended. Like I said above, this allows you to share the cost, feature your products & be tagged on social media so other customers in the area can find you.
How do I put together a styled shoot?
Reach out to other local non-competing businesses that you admire & ask them if they want to work with you. Sometimes brands compliment each other perfectly. For example, the image to the left is marketing a Coeur d'Alene clothing boutique AND a tanning salon.
How do you price styled shoots?
As a Styled Photographer, I price them based on the number of products, how many models are needed (because I get them together) & the time it will take to shoot. The pricing will start around $1,000 & goes up from there.
CERTIFICATION & TECHNOLOGY
When I'm in Styled Photographer mode, I use the Canon Rebel T7, videography on the DJI Osmo Pocket, or using my iPhone 11, depending on the needed aspect. For drone shots, I use my DJI Mavic Air.
Additional resources that I use are Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom & Adobe Premier Pro for video editing.
