|The Wise Owl photoshoot
|If anyone rang the office on Monday 29th January and wondered where we were - here's the answer!
We've wanted for some time now to represent what it's like to attend a Wise Owl training course, but obviously we can't film our delegates. Instead, Simone arranged for a photographer and 4 models/actors to do a professional photo-shoot at the Holiday Inn in Manchester:
If you're not impressed with the quality, that's because this wasn't taken by the photographer (Chris).
If you've ever wondered what it takes to organise a morning like this, here's the answer:
Decide on the venue and book a room.
Simone emailed 6 agencies in Manchester to get quotes. The price was pushed up by the fact that we wanted unlimited usage of the resulting photos. We got headshots of actors from 3 agencies and eventually went with Stark Talent Agency.
Get a photographer
We drew up a list of everything we needed for the photoshoot and a schedule for the day: in the end everything went smoothly!
Total budget for the day? About £2,600 (plus VAT where applicable): photo-shoots don't come cheap, it transpires. Hopefully you'll start seeing the results in our marketing over the coming weeks and months.
It felt really uncomfortable going through photographs to choose actors. We wanted to get a sample of people who are reasonably representative of our clients (the photo above includes at least one Wise Owl ringer).
