The coronavirus pandemic has completely changed the way we shoot – even the way photoshoots are executed! Photographers and our clients have to get creative and work with the new social distancing guidelines to keep everyone safe while keeping the business up and running.
This is a story of how we at StudioOnCloud managed to pull off a successful shoot amidst a nationwide lockdown while taking all the necessary precautions!
This is a story of how StudioOnCloud pulled off a shoot amidst the nationwide lockdown while taking all the necessary precautions!
The Beginning of a good shoot!
It all started when the Category Marketing Manager at Godrej – Ameya Rege, got in touch with StudioOnCloud for a product shoot involving refrigerators. He told us that he learned about StudioOnCloud when our founder, Mr. Vikas Dutt introduced it as ‘the Uber-like platform for photography services’ to his team while shooting for Godrej Script.
“As soon as I received the contract for this product, I thought of giving StudioOnCloud a shot as I saw a lot of potential in the team. The briefing process and the communication went really smoothly and hassle-free. I initially just briefed them about our requirements. Vikas and his team laid the entire blueprint from scratch within no time.”
In his feedback about working with StudioOnCloud, Mr. Rege said “It’s not easy managing a photoshoot during a lockdown. But StudioOnCloud managed it in an extremely organized manner – from the planning to the execution. We were extremely satisfied with the results. Working with StudioOnCloud was a great experience.”

The photographer assigned for the shoot was Rohan Luthra. He has been working as a photographer for the last seven years under his father’s guidance.
“Recently Vikas sir contacted me to execute a product shoot in Mohali. I was extremely happy to receive the opportunity, so I immediately agreed to it. And I was slightly skeptical about interstate travel because of the national lockdown, but I did not face any hurdles on the way. The clients were extremely cooperative and helpful.”

Team Work is key!
Rohan told us that Shubham, from the StudioOnCloud team, was a pillar of support during the shoot, who efficiently managed it remotely.
“Vikas sir was a vital mentor throughout my journey on this shoot. He kept me in the loop and updated me about the brand and the products, even before I reached the location of the shoot.”
Even though the shoot happened in the midst of the pandemic, all precautions were taken. Social distancing was thoroughly maintained at its best.
He added, “This shoot was very different than my past shoot experiences. StudioOnCloud guided me with all the insights about the shoot. They were personally making sure that there were no loopholes in the process.

I consider this opportunity to be an important milestone in my professional journey of photography. I would recommend all aspiring photographers out there to work with StudioOnCloud so that they get the same kind of experience and professional exposure I did!”
