Photography for Video Projects
Catapult Studios’ photographic staff offers you ways to augment any video project with still images. Common applications may include:
- Documentation of a video project.
- Stills of personnel in action during the project
- Behind-the-scenes shots
- Photos of products
- Head shots of personnel
- Documentation of remote events
- Portraits of personnel
Photographic documentation of corporate videos and commercials can be very useful both for inclusion in the video itself and for use in brochures and web based advertising.
Pictures taken of your staff during a production can contribute to employee morale and enthusiasm and make great keepsakes for participants who may be donating their time and talents. Head shots of your own talent can also be a welcome added value for them.
