Everything must be ready when the photographers arrive, so that they can quickly begin their installation and start the job. For instance, the dishes must be prepared in advance if it is a culinary report, premises must be spotless if it is a real estate report etc.
For this, you must read the brief carefully before the start and and follow the instructions that are given.
Photographers may have questions about your activity so it is best that you remain available if they need any additional explanation. Remember that the better things are organized and the better the communication, the faster the job will take place and in the best possible conditions.
