The Busy Tradesperson’s Guide to Capturing Success with Flexible Photography

The Challenge: Traditional Photography Doesn’t Fit Your Workflow

Traditional photography services either are session based and charged by the number or photos, or there booked with minimum which can be a poor fit for your project-based workflow. You may only need a photographer for 1 hour, and there minimum for onsite work is two.

As a trades person Imagine needing photos for:

  • A website refresh showcasing your carpentry expertise.
  • A quick team headshot for your plumbing business’s Instagram page.
  • “Before and after” images of a recent bathroom renovation.

These scenarios all require photos, but at different times throughout the month A rigid, pre-planned shoot doesn’t capture the dynamic nature of your work.

The Solution: Flexible Photography Tailored to Your Needs

At A Smile A Day Photography, Ive recognised this, I love that I can support trades people, but im like a lot of photographers who charge by the hour and have a minimum set hours on site, so im introducing a flexible photography service specific for trades people. 

This service allows you to book a set number of photography hours that you can utilize throughout a designated period. Need photos today for a client proposal, and some social media content next month? No problem! This pay-as-you-go approach gives you the freedom to schedule photography sessions as your projects unfold.

Benefits for Busy Tradespeople: Streamlined Marketing and Powerful Results

  • Cost-Effectiveness: Pay only for the time you use, ensuring efficient budget allocation.
  • Project Flexibility: Capture photos as needed for different projects, eliminating the need for large, pre-planned shoots.
  • Real-Time Response: Respond to your project needs in real-time. Need “during construction” photos for a client on short notice? A flexible service allows you to schedule a quick session on the fly.
  • Content Creation Made Easy: Capture a steady stream of high-quality photos throughout the month to keep your website and social media profiles fresh and engaging.

Examples in Action: Showcasing Your Expertise Through Photos

  • Electricians: Capture stunning final images of completed wiring projects showcasing the intricate details of your work and the finished product.
  • Plumbers: Document the repair process to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and client satisfaction. Show “before” photos of a clogged drain, followed by images of the plumber fixing the issue and a final picture of the happy homeowner with their working system.
  • Construction Companies: Utilize the service for regular progress photos on large projects, capturing the transformation from foundation to completion. Additionally, use the hours for team headshots and even capturing happy homeowners in their newly completed spaces.

Beyond Project Photos: Building Trust and Brand Identity

Flexible hourly photography can go beyond capturing project photos. Use the service to build trust and personality around your brand. Capture your team in action, showcasing their camaraderie and dedication. Take photos of satisfied clients in their newly remodeled kitchens or repaired bathrooms.

This approach allows potential clients to connect with the faces behind the business and see the positive impact your work has on people’s lives.

Capturing the Moments that Matter: Telling Your Business Story

By having access to professional photography whenever you need it, you can effectively showcase your work, build trust with potential clients, and ultimately grow your business.

Flexible hourly photography empowers you to capture the moments that matter most, telling your business story one professional photo at a time. This streamlined approach allows you to focus on what you do best – providing exceptional service to your clients – while ensuring your marketing materials effectively communicate your skills and expertise.

Consider exploring flexible hourly photography to streamline your marketing efforts and capture the moments that matter most.
