First off it's worth mentioning Neel is a great artist and that can be seen in his photography. He is very patient and has a friendly and approachable way of working with clients which is something we were looking for.
We asked Neel to take a team photograph and headshots for all 30 employees for our global rebrand. Neel’s process and creative direction is really thorough; taking time for two meetings before the shoot took place to share ideas, suggest several locations and examples of previous work. After exploring several options we decided to shoot the headshots at an external location close to our office and a team picture using a drone.
On the actual shoot day, Neel was very professional and arrived early, well prepared and had all the right equipment. He took time with each employee making them feel comfortable and created a fun atmosphere using music, great conversation and using an elaborate lighting set-up.
Due to poor weather on the day of the shoot unfortunately the team shot using drone proved to be difficult. Neel was super professional and came up with a new idea and organised a new photo shoot for another day on the roof top on our office building - something which we had already discussed. The second day shoot was quick as the team only a small window of availability. The resulting image was perfect. The team really enjoyed it the entire experience.
We got every picture in RAW and JPG format on a USB Drive immediately after the shoot so our internal designer could work with the photos for the Lightful website.
Neel also selected and beautifully edited two pictures of each employee a few days later. We recommend Neel’s work highly and will be working with him again in the future.
