How to Direct an eCommerce photography shoot remotely during Covid 19 lockdown

How to direct an eCommerce photography shoot remotely?

Here at Uniquecapture we have set up a live video feed to direct your own eCommerce photography shoot. Online sellers, brands and creative agencies can take advantage of the increase in eCommerce sales we have seen during Covid 19 lockdown.

Clients and stakeholders can log in to our live video feed of our Milton Keynes photography studio from the comfort of their own home. 

Multiple people can view our shooting and styling stations simultaneously. Whilst having a constant live view of our photographer with audio. Not only will you see the action live and close up, however you will be able to help direct and style each image as its being taken. 

Prior to the shoot we will also provide you with a direct link to a private image server.  Any images we 5* during the shoot will instantly be added to this, enabling you or your client to view the image directly from their own screen to give final approval. As our software is all in real time, no time is wasted!

How to arrange a live video feed shoot?

All we need to do is confirm a date in the diary. Our remote live feeds can easily be set up for you and your team.

We work with brands and business all around the world.  So we are very much used to planning shoots over the phone, email and via Zoom.

Whilst we wait for products to be shipped to us or dropped off, we will work with you to confirm a brief for our photographer to follow.

To make things super easy, we have created briefing templates and documents. As well as a photography guide to help explain angles and terminology. We also have various documents enabling you to digitally scroll through and select numbered surfaces, backdrops and studio props.

Setting up a live feed and image server enables us to receive constant feedback and direction. Just as if you were present in the studio.
