TIP: To get the best from candle and fairy light you need a longer exposure. These images shot at Holker Hall were multiple exposures with the camera on a tripod which are then overlaid together. This technique is called HDR and perfect for capturing seasonal shots both in daylight and twilight.

Capture your seasonal premises

If your premises is decorated get some lovely, warm, cosy, twinkling shots. If you are shooting yourself, try a long exposure with your camera on a tripod to get the full glowing glory in the evening. Exterior shots are also great, if you have lights on your property or lovely window displays. This Christmas brand photography can be useful for years to come and you can just keep adding to your stock of images over the years.

TIP: Simple styling can instantly give a Christmas feel, adding holly and ivy, berries, pine cones or fairy lights can transform a scene. Before you put your decorations back in the loft consider shooting a few images to kick start your seasonal marketing next year. Image shot for Lakeland Artisan

Christmas concepts

If you know your decorations are going to be different next year you can do a mixture of shots, some to share this year with your current decorations and some more generic shots to lead in
your seasonal marketing next year.

Christmas brand photography ideas:

- Mulled wine and a mince pie by your fire with fairy lights in the background.
- A wrapped present with holly perhaps with your logo on a gift tag
- A seasonal floral display at your premises,
- Crackers on a decorated table setting with your branded menu
- A book such as The Christmas Carol on your bedside table with a stocking by the bed.

Whatever your business there is a seasonal concept that can promote you and give
some seasonal cheer to your social media and marketing. Call me to discuss a seasonal shoot, even if it is July, this happens quiet often in fact.

TIP: If your business has some wonderful floral displays these make a great focal point for a seasonal shoot, add a glass or two of fizz and you have a perfect promotional shot for marketing to couples next year. The same flowers can be placed in the background of a laid table shot with a cracker and you have a Christmas meal promo shot.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Don’t forget to get out there with your camera as soon as we get some seasonal weather. Snow or a frosty morning looks wonderful and can be useful for most businesses. Keeping some Christmas decorations handy is great, as we don’t often get snow over the festive period but if you have a door wreath you can quickly put up or a few baubles to hang you can quickly bring some seasonal charm whatever the month.
