As any very professional photographer will tell you, being organized is what makes life so much simpler when it comes to actually shooting. To help along with the process is StudioBinder, a company that helps photographers and creatives stay organized. They’ve recently released Call Sheets for photographers to stay on top of work as it comes in. Their samples show how photographers and agencies can stay on top of the work that they’re doing and translate ideas from contracts and details from the shoot into one spot.
You’ve got things like areas for the concept for the shoot, separated talent and crew grid, specific call times, department notes, file attachments, and more like mood boards (which lots of photographers use Pinterest for these days.)
But these aren’t all just any call sheets…
These sheets can do things like:
- Enable that all addresses become map links.
- Weather details are generated automatically.
- Wardrobe and crew reminders delivered privately.
- Search and select hospitals in-app.
- View latest call sheets changes online.
- Call, email or text contacts from your mobile device.
- Add crew, assign roles, email and phone.
- Save favorite contacts into lists for easy re-importing.
It’s something that makes a whole lot of sense for fashion photographers, portrait photographers, headshot photographers, engagement sessions, food photographers, product photographers, lifestyle photographers, etc. I wouldn’t exactly recommend it to a wedding shooter though because of the fact that they’ll be so busy documenting the process. Beyond that, I’d really recommend them for photographers that don’t have production managers hired as part of their team–but even if you do then this can help make their lives and your lives easier.
