a brand shoot in 2 hours

Brand Mini Shoots

Wouldn’t it be great to have photoshoots scheduled throughout the year instead of trying to book one last minute? Wouldn’t it be nice to have a shoot completely planned for you without coordinating anything? Welcome to Apto Media’s Brand Mini Shoots!

never run out of content again

Having nothing to post sucks!

Running out of content throughout the year? Dread planning a photoshoot, coordinating a studio, hiring a photographer, and never having enough content to post? A lot of time goes into planning and coordinating a really great brand shoot, and sometimes there aren’t enough hours in the day.

You can get that time back, always have content to post, and never worry about booking a last-minute brand shoot again.

Schedule it

Time to make some decisions! Let’s decide on the type of brand shoot you need for your business. Are you updating your website, selling a new service, or just need some new content for Instagram? You’ll fill out a questionnaire and then we’ll set up a strategy call to discuss all your ideas, strategy, video script, outfits, and by the end you’ll have a complete plan for your brand shoot.

Shoot it.

The day is here! We’ll have two hours to complete your brand shoot. Shoot locations are included and predetermined 1 week before the shoot date. The shoot includes hair & makeup, three outfit changes, script recording, b-roll, photos, and of course a little extra time to capture the BTS for Instagram stories.

Grow it.

The email has arrived! Within 2 weeks you’ll receive all the deliverables for your brand shoot. Which includes 40 edited photos, and a 1-2 minute brand video. You are free to use these on your website, throughout social media, to sell a new service, and anyway they can help grow your business.

let's talk pricing

Typical brand shoots are $4,000+ for an all-day shoot, with hair& makeup, studio, photographer, and videographer. Our Brand Mini Shoots include all the same deliverables as a full-day brand shoot but at 1/2 the cost and 1/2 the time.

Price: $2,500

A discount is applied if you book more than 1 shoot. At booking we ask for a 10% deposit. Payment plans are available.

Frequently asked questions

These days it takes consistency to build a profitable business, and that means producing new content throughout the year. Full-day brand shoots can take up to 6 hours and at the end of the day everyone is exhausted from shooting multiple looks at multiple locations. Thus we created Brand Mini Shoots but ours are a little different. In 2 hours we shoot brand photos, videos, and by the end, you’ll have enough content to last you 2-3 months. Launching a new program? A Brand Mini Shoot can help create the content to sell your program and turn potential customers into real ones!

Once you book your session (or you can book multiple sessions for a discounted price) our team will send you a questionnaire to fill out for us to start planning. Then we’ll schedule your 1:1 style session, 1:1 strategy call, and fill you in on the final details (location and time) for the shoot.

A couple of days before we’ll send you a reminder with all the details, props to bring, and even give a bonus checklist so you’re fully prepared.

On the day of the shoot, you’ll come at your set time, and you’ll immediately sit down in the hair and makeup chair. During your hair and makeup session, our team will prep your outfits, steam them if necessary, and get the scenes ready for your shoot. After hair and makeup, you’ll get dressed in your first outfit, and then you’re ready to shoot!

During your 2 hour shoot, we’ll shoot 3 outfits (video and photos) in 3 different scenes (2 inside the studio, and one outside on the street). After the 2 hours, you’ll pack your things up and be on your way!

Two weeks after the shoot, you’ll receive your materials! You’ll select 40 photos, provide edits for your brand video, and 1 week later you’ll receive your final edited materials. 

Extras: If you booked an extra 1:1 Strategy Call we’ll schedule it after you receive your final materials. If you booked a multi-shoot package, this will be the schedule each time but you also may receive a couple of other bonuses and special treats in between.

During our 1:1 Strategy Call we’ll discuss your goals for booking the shoot, and the exact shots that you would like us to take. Whether you need the photos to post on Instagram, to add new photos to your website, or if you’re launching a group program; we shoot the exact pictures you need to use for your business.

A brand video allows you to tell your story, who you are, and what services you have to offer; all in a video. Unfortunately website are not read as much these days, and long captions are only partially read. A brand video allows you to connect with your audience and tell your story. Launching a new program? We can film your brand video to reflect that too. 

About 2 weeks before the shoot we’ll confirm the studio location in either New York or Boston. All studios have props, makeup stations, clothing racks, and different scenes for us to set up and shoot the best photos and videos for your brand. Some of the studios we have previously booked are Blank Studio NYC and Somerville Studios in Boston, MA.

Your entire time slot will be 3 hours. The first hour is for hair and makeup, and hours 2-3 are to shoot. There are four times available per day starting at 9am and the last time to book is 3pm. First come first serve so ask what times are left available!

Click here to schedule a Discovery Call, and our team will explain everything the shoot entails. We’ll also go over your goals, the type of content you need, and what date/time you’d like to book. All booking require a 10% deposit and once paid then your spot is secured and booked!
