The images you have on your profile are the first thing that customers see. If you’ve arranged your professional photoshoot through Treatwell, here are some things you should know before the shoot takes place.
How to prepare for your photoshoot
Make sure your salon is dressed to impress. A clean and tidy salon helps the photographer capture it’s full potential. To get the best results, we recommend that no customers are present during the photoshoot.
Create an ambience in the salon to visually strengthen your brand aesthetic. A little bit of styling can go a long way, so add those fresh cut flowers, hang that art and hide those unruly cables.
Understand the plan for the day
The photographer will closely follow our guidelines, so they’ll take pictures of the interior and exterior of the salon, the products that you use, any treatment rooms and a portrait of yourself (if you wish).
They won’t take pictures of your team members, or of treatments being performed.
Know what to expect next
After your shoot has taken place, the photos will be added to Connect as soon as possible. This can take a few days, so don’t worry if they don’t appear straight away.
We’ll always select the best photos available. If pictures were taken on the day that don’t meet our photography guidelines, it’s likely that they’ll be discarded and not make it onto your profile. You can download our photography guidelines at the bottom of this article.
Know our terms
As explained during the process of booking a photoshoot, you will incur costs if you don’t arrive on time for your photoshoot, you cancel or reschedule at the last minute, or the shoot can’t take place on the day it’s booked for. If you’re aware in advance that you’ll run late or need to cancel, please get in touch as soon as possible to avoid these charges.
