Do you work in a co-working or shared office space? Are you an independent freelancer or small business owner renting an office, or a desk in one of Montreal’s several business hotels or co-working spaces? If so, and you too would like to benefit from group rates on having a professional portrait done to update your profile picture, this post is for you. A significant part of the time investment in doing an on-site corporate portrait in your office is setting up a mini-studio on site in an office space (often in a boardroom). If you happen to work in a shared space, or in an office with other businesses renting offices on the same floor, you can easily leverage your investment in a portrait session to access the kinds of group discounts larger companies and corporations receive. Here’s how to do it:
- When you are planning to book your own on site, in-office portrait send or post a message to the other professionals and businesses sharing your work space letting them know and offering them the chance to participate.
- Contact your professional corporate photographer and inform him or her that you’d like headshots taken for yourself and colleagues / co-workers and ask for a group or bulk rate.
- Make the booking and ensure everyone who’s signed on is ready on the day of the shoot.
