Why is a Behind the Scenes Video So Important?


Why Should You get a Bailey Behind the Scenes Video?

You don’t have to add a behind the scenes video to your photoshoot booking with me, but in my opinion, it’s a missed opportunity.

I’ve got a number of brilliant videographers that work alongside me to capture your kinetic moment whilst I work on that perfect still. 

It’s the ideal time to tag on a behind the scenes video to your photoshoot with me because you’ll already be at your peak condition after (probably) a long prep.

If you’ve already taken the time to get your professional photoshoot tan sorted along with countless hours of training and possibly even a long journey – if you’ve come from abroad to shoot with me – it makes sense from an economical perspective as much as a physique perspective to shoot both at the same time!

You have to think as well about how you’ll be in that shoot space, because if you think you might not come across in photos as how you necessarily want to (like if you plan on trying out a different style to what you normally portray yourself or your brand as), then you might want video there to capture a different emotion between shots.

It’s a chance to show a little more of your personality too to your audience, clients and customers – making you a little more authentic and relatable.

A high-quality-shot behind the scenes video alongside your professional portfolio of images from our photoshoot together will look incredible on your social media feed. A fitness behind the scenes video can also find a good home on your website’s homepage, showing off your physique or your modelled product from multiple angles.

Plus, I do love when I hear clients say that they’re so glad they chose the video package so they have a permanent keepsake of a really fun experience too!

What are the Different Behind the Scenes Video Packages?

My behind the scenes videographers will film some awesome footage of you doing your thing whilst we’re on-set, and you’ll barely even notice they’re there!

There are two packages to choose from for a Bailey photoshoot add-on:

OPTION 1: Behind the Scenes Video (Basic) – £100

• 1 Minute Behind the Scenes Video to showcase your physique and experience of the shoot.

OPTION 2: Behind the Scenes Video (High End) – £300

• 1 Minute Behind the Scenes Video to showcase your physique and experience of the shoot

• Multiple social media formats

• Film screen grab images

• Personal music selection

Behind the Scenes Video Ideas

A behind the scenes video on a shoot with me is usually as noninvasive as possible, which means the behind the scenes videographer will work in the background as we move around the gym space cycling through your different shots and poses.

It’s important to note that a posing idea you have may not work for a photograph in actuality, but it could look incredible in film. The videographer will be there to capture each moment, from you trying out poses to you nailing the perfect shot (and hopefully showing a little smile in between!).

A lot of clients of mine want to use the Bailey studio or The Vault to shoot their exercise library, but you might want to consider adding a behind the scenes video onto this too to show a different side to your brand that’s not as serious and help build a little rapport.

If you’re a brand or product as opposed to a coach or competitor, you might want to think about how a behind the scenes video can show your product from a different angle or how the clothing (for example) sits on the model as they get into position.

Where Can You Have a Bailey Behind the Scenes Video?

I offer all my clients the option to add a behind the scenes video at the time of booking to be shot during our photoshoot. 

As a fitness photographer, it was important for me to offer a professional yet functional gym space for us to shoot together in that’s there just for you, as opposed to us trying to shoot on location in a potentially very busy gym. That’s why I opened up the Nottingham Bailey Studio and also The Vault in London (the latter which my good friend Laurence runs his popular PT business from) – both fully kitted out in high-end Watson gym equipment.

You can choose to have a behind the scenes video taken at either of these UK locations, in particular but get in touch if you’d like a behind the scenes video on a location shoot.

How Can you Use a Behind the Scenes Video?

A behind the scenes video is very useful for your social media feed along with your website.

Social cuts are available with the High End package to save you some time and can help you make multiple uses of the content we shot together, making your hard work go even further.

You’ll be an absolute powerhouse on social media if you’ve got a number of professionally shot images in your arsenal AND a high-end video to go with them.

When Can You Purchase a Behind the Scenes Video?

I’ve already covered in this blog that you’ll be offered the chance to add a behind the scenes video package onto your photoshoot at the time of booking, but if you decide after booking that you regretted not adding it on, just drop me a message and I’ll get it sorted for you (I just need 7 days notice).
