3. How does a virtual photoshoot work?
A virtual photoshoot typically starts with a consultation to discuss the client’s needs and goals. During this call, the photographer will advise on props, lighting, and backgrounds that will work best for the desired result. Once the consultation is complete, the photographer will set up and invite you to join via video call. Some companies automate getting to know who will be in front of the camera. Unfortunately, although we use technology to do the job, automation only creates more anxiety about having one’s photo taken. At Remote Director – we are real photographers, so the experience is much more pleasant and smooth sailing. See what client’s have to say.

5. What should you look for when hiring a virtual photoshoot photographer?
When hiring a virtual photoshoot photographer, you should look for someone with experience in the specific type of photo shoot you’re looking for. This could include headshots, product photography, or portrait sessions for social media and branding purposes. It would be best if you also considered the photographer’s portfolio to ensure they’re able to create the style and quality of images you need. You have to know whom you are working with for a stress-free shoot. Just like traditional shoots, rapport is essential.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Donna in-person as well as virtually and both experiences were seamless with beautiful results. I have received many compliments over the years on her work and have recommended Donna to help others with their corporate photography. The Remote Director process was as simple as booking an appointment, a preparatory phone discussion and then a quick virtual photo shoot. I recommend Remote Director if you are looking for high quality photography from the comfort of your home or office.
