Office & Staff Photo Shoot is part and parcel for any growing business and organisation. We share some of the works our photographer have delivered for our corporate and organisation clients.
Our Vivid Snaps Team
The Vivid Snaps team consist of media professionals, including photographers, project managers, graphic designers, videographers and video editors. While our team started off with specialisation in photography, we have grown over the last 8 years to deliver a wider range of corporate media productions for our customers.
Office & Staff Photo Shoot
In this reference, you are looking at a staff photo shoot in the office conference room, and the client is a multinational marketing agency. The vibrant coloured walls in the client office made it easier to compose a warm image. During the photo shoot, this photo was composed with a combination of natural light and a portable studio flash, diffused with a soft-box.
What to take note when planning a shoot like this:
When doing a staff photo shoot in your office, it is quite likely that you will be shooting at different areas within the office. It is therefore important to tidy the office overall prior to the shoot. Depending on whether you are engaging a make-up artist for your photo shoot, you may brief your staff and colleagues to groom themselves before the shoot.
Staff Award Photo Shoot
Staff & employee award photo shoot serves to honour team members with exceptional performance. Staff photos are featured prominently as large format posters and company newsletter.
Photoshoot for staff recognition takes on different format, in this example we feature outdoor staff photo shoot. With the image on the right featuring product for context.
Custom Message Staff Photo Shoot
You can also incorporate fun elements in your employee photo shoot. In the above example, employees are encouraged to write their messages on a black board, and hold it up at the photo shoot. The resulting images were later compiled into a coffee table book. We think this was a really meaningful photo shoot!
Using a black board instead of a white board for the customised message during this employee photo shoot helped to minimise reflection caused by photography flash and ambient light. Kudos to our client for the apt choice!
Office Reception Photo Shoot
With a beautiful reception and front desk at your office, it is one worth featuring. In this photo taken with a wide-angle lens, not only are you able to experience and overview of the reception space and friendly staff. You will also observe the surveillance camera, that is a feature of this storage facility.
Company Group Photo For 300 Staff
Company group photo for large headcount are usually more challenging to organise. Firstly, ample space is required to accommodate the sheer number of staff for the photo shoot. Then, either the photographer or the group has to be elevated to make sure all the faces can be seen.
In this company group photo reference, special platform was set up for staff in the back rows. Allowing them to stand at an elevated position. We also take into consideration of the time-of-day for the best lighting condition. For instance, noon should be avoided as the lighting condition is likely to cast a harsh shadow on the faces. Not to mention many would need to squint their eyes, and the perspiration that you need to endure.
After the company group photo is taken, customised branding overlays can be designed to complement the occasion. In this reference, our team has added in a Singapore flag to represent the office location. The logo and company name on the building was added in during post-production too.
What to take note when planning company photo shoot:
Always have a backup location in case of wet weather, this could be an auditorium or a sheltered stairway. While we usually cater at least 1 photographer assistant for a company photo shoot of this scale, you will need 2-6 ushers to help with organising the crowd.
Customised graphics or image manipulation will add to the cost of your company photo shoot. Hence, you may want to discuss the requirements upfront.
Composite Group Photo
While it may not be immediately obvious to the untrained eye, this company group photo consists of images that were individually taken. Our photographer then process these images individually using a consistent workflow, thereafter stitching them into a composite group photo.
The advantages of a composite group photo are many. Firstly, the final image will be very high resolution, as it is a combination of many individual high-res images. Secondly, you can reposition the individuals in any position during the photo editing process. Then, you can also split them into smaller group to use for different marketing collaterals. If a member of your team leaves, you can also remove them and still have a complete photo.
Generally speaking, you can also change the background of the image to any scene you want.
This method is extremely time-consuming during the post-production stage. And if you are working with a large group of staff (>30), this can be logistically challenging too. Having to coordinate the individual timing, with the possibility to the shoot spanning across multiple days.
Relaxed Photo Shoot
You can use relaxed photo shoots to take headshots of your team members for use on your company website, in marketing materials, and on social media. Relaxed photos can help employees feel more comfortable and natural in front of the camera, resulting in more flattering and approachable headshots.
Relaxed photo shoots can also be used to capture the company culture and showcase the workplace environment. This can be particularly useful for recruitment purposes, as potential hires can get a sense of what it’s like to work at the company.
Staff Engagement Photo Shoot
Thematic staff photo shoot can be explored for specific purpose, this could be used for events, engagement and marketing brochures.
A stage photo shoot like these are usually shot on white or grey backdrop, with the colour edited and finalised in post-production. Portrait photo shoot can be done either in your office or at our studio.
Warehouse & Staff Photo Shoot
In this stock photo that our photographer shot for a multinational supply chain company, whose warehouse photo shoot features a staff who is on-the-job. In a warehouse and staff photo shoot like this, we usually deploy a photographer with an assistant, a 2-man crew.
The ambient light is usually not sufficient for a professional look, hence our photographer will use portable studio lights with an appropriate light diffuser to light the scene. Each scene may take approx. 30 mins to shoot from setting up to prep-ing the areas that are visible in the photo.
All photos taken by our photographer will be edited before the final images are sent to you. Depending on the schedule, it may be possible for our photographer to take a few varied angle of the same subject. Then you can make your selection after the shoot.
What to take note when planning a warehouse photo shoot:
Some work site might require our crew to go through safety training, or specific PPE may be required. If there are additional cost involve, these are usually not inclusive within the standard photography package.
Always prepare the best looking products for the photo shoot, for instance avoid a box that appear dusty.
Request for the staff or talent to wear contrasting colour. For instance, if your warehouse consist of mostly grey-coloured racks, consider a blue uniform or attire. So the subject can stand out in the photo.

Office Interior Photo Shoot (High-end)
This office interior shot & edited by our photographer Steven Wong, features an office with an inviting space.
Office interior photography has a few tiers, with varying intensity that affects the shooting time and editing intensity. This reference shows a higher-end example, where individual objects are lit individually by the photographer using studio flash.
You can think of the pool table, bean bag, cabinet, walls and windows are separate images on their own. The pool table could be a couple of shots on its own to bring out the punch in this photo. Therefore, a shot like this takes a longer time to capture the different shots. Then it takes even longer in post-production to mask and combine the layers together.
Office Interior Photo Shoot (Mid-range)
When you compare this office interior photo, you will likely observe the difference in quality from the previous reference.
Office interior photo shoots similar to these are usually for archival purpose, or internal reference. Therefore, going for a less intensive photo shoot and editing workflow can prove to be more cost-effective.
Warehouse Building Photo Shoot
A building can be captured in multiple ways, in this reference the photographer captured the building from the ground up. With the image being captured at this angle, using a wide-angle lens, the building is given an edgy look. Choosing a time-of-day to capture the building is important, in this case our photographer has chosen the morning hour, with the sun providing a light flare that adds interest to the image.
Drone & Aerial Building Photo Shoot
As compared to a photo shoot from ground level, a building photo shoot using a drone captures the building from a less common perspective. Thus, arousing interest from the viewer. Aerial photo can also tell a different story, for instance in this building, the aerial photo also us to see the rooftop garden and solar panels. Giving us a hint of the sustainability efforts undertaken by the business.
What to take note when planning an aerial photo shoot:
For locations near the various airports and military bases in Singapore, an aerial photo shoot may prove to be difficult. While for any other locations in Singapore, an aerial filming permit has to be approved by the CAAS. This process can take 2 weeks or longer, hence a drone photo shoot cannot be pulled off under a tight timeline.
When the drone is required to fly above private property, a separate written permission is also required from the property owner.
Concierge Photo Shoot
Having professional photos of your concierge service can help build trust with potential customers and make your business appear more professional and reliable. This can help make your services more appealing and visually engaging to potential customers, and can help set your business apart from competitors.
