Photoshoot anything. Thoughts, stories and tips from Team Perfocal.

Team building exercises and humanity captured beautifully

There’s a big difference between having co-workers and truly working well with others. A good team is more than the sum of its parts. Everybody should contribute and work with each other’s strengths and weaknesses to make something spectacular.

The team start their bonding with pastry - of course!

Before a group of people can truly be considered a team, they need to break down the barriers that keep them separate socially. This is something that Mehdi from digital marketing firm Hyper Crunch wanted to show off her client Sarah doing with her team.

Photoshoot details:

Customer: Mehdi
Type of shoot: Business Event
Location: Islington, London
Package: 1 hour (£99)

Mixing the batter is always messy!

A Team That Bakes Together, Stays Together

So, the marketing firm went ahead and decided to book a team building exercise for the client’s team to engage in. They used the opportunity to take some photos showing off the laughs and smiles. These smiles were symbolic of the team becoming more than just co-workers! The end goal was for Sarah to post these online to show off the human element that drives her business.

Smiles all round!

You know what they say about best laid plans, though. They often go awry. The company's usual in-house photographer dropped out at the last moment. There was less than twelve hours to go before the planned team building exercise!

Replacing the photographer at this late notice was bound to either cost them a small fortune, or no happen whatsoever. Photographers are very busy folks, and they're usually unable to fulfill late notice shoots.  

They were stuck without a photographer, what were they to do? Luckily for them, our precision system at Perfocal was able to arrange their shoot with professional photographer, Nicola, in less than 15 minutes.

Perfocal has a database of professional photographers across the UK, enabling them to fill in gaps in their calendar by working flexibly and simply.

Everything was ready to go just as quickly as it took Mehdi to fill out the simple booking form.

Making the perfect pastry takes concentration 

Say Cheese!

The shoot went off without a hitch. Superhero Nicola came to the team's rescue despite the 12 hour notice. She promptly made her way to the shoot to capture all of the infectious laughter and revelry that came with the team building baking exercise. Looks pretty delicious to us, guys!

A pie fit for a king

In the end, Mehdi’s client Sarah was provided with plenty of photos to post on her company’s social media, which would show off the team's connection. Take a look at the pictures for yourself, who'd have thought these guys only work together? We'd have said they were lifelong friends.

Group chat: how delicious was that on a scale from 1 to 10?

After the team finished their team building baking, they sat down to enjoy their creations together and get to know each other even better.

What a gloriously happy day of bonding! Perfocal is proud to have helped the team from Hyper Crunch with their team building exercise, and become an even closer group of pals and a great team! We hope these photos bring them great memories for years to come.
