frequently asked questions

how does pronto work?

we thought you’d never ask! it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. so give us a beat and watch us break it down.

step 1: send us your stuff.

and by “stuff” we mean your product and any other small items you wish to include in your shoot. once we receive your product, you’ll be able to book your shoot.

(sorry to spoil the fun, but due to legal reasons, we ask that you refrain from sending Tobacco and Vaping Products, Firearms – including imitation and replica firearms –,  Intoxicating beverages, Drugs and other controlled substances, Perishable items, Liquids and Animals, Plants)

step 2: tell us what you want.

style your shoot in our styling module. Tell us what best describes what you’re lookin’ for and we’ll turn your vision into a reality.

step 3: attend the shoot in your dashboard 

log into your account on shoot day and collab in real-time or sit back, relax and let us do what we do best. 

step 4: pay-per-photo

when the shoot is done, choose your fave photos, check out, and instantly download them from our site. go ahead and flash that new bling. the best part: you only pay for the photos you want to buy / download. no more, no less.

how can I contact a real human?

schedule a call by clicking here, email us at hey@shootpronto.com or send us a chat through your client dashboard.

how do I join my shoot?

hop in the director's chair by logging into your pronto account, open the chat box, and collab with us live. you’ll be chatting directly with your photographer & editor for the shoot.

when photos start rolling in, your pronto gallery will update in real-time. provide feedback, change colors, add or take away props, and make sure we get the right angles, all from your account. 

if you're having a busy day, check out how the shoot is coming along by popping in and out of the gallery as you please. our platform is mobile-friendly so you can check in on your shoot from anywhere. we send updates as we move through the shotlist, so you always have a chance to chime in.

who creates the ideas/concepts?

teamwork makes the dream work. in short, we’ll create the concepts together.

first, run through the styling module to tell us what you want. once your shoot is styled, our team will upload a shotlist to make sure we’re all on the same page.

let us know up to 24 hours before your shoot if you want to change your shotlist.

if you need an extra hand, add-on a stylist glow-up to bring your vision to life.

we encourage you to check out our *inspiration page* to see some work we’ve created with past clients!

when will my photos be ready?

as a rule of thumb photos are ready in less than 24 hours, and GIFs & video clips will be delivered within 48 hours.

photos are uploaded to your gallery as they're taken. they can be reviewed and purchased live, so technically they are available right away for those eager beavers!

your gallery with pronto never expires and is shoppable at any time, so pick the content you love and leave the stuff you don’t.

how long do we store your product?

we’ll store your products for 6 months following your shoot. if you choose to book another shoot within those 6 months (which we hope you will!), we’re happy to keep your products on hand so you won’t have to re-ship them.

if you choose to not book another shoot, no sweat. we’ll either donate your product or send it back to you - just be sure to send us a return label.

how do I cancel/reschedule?

we get it, life happens. that’s why you can cancel or reschedule your booking up to 24 hours before your shoot. just head to your *client dashboard* and send us a message.

if you can’t attend your shoot, there’s no need to cancel. we have a team of kickass creatives that are equipped and eager to bring your vision to life - whether you can make it or not.

can you shoot in a real-life setting?

we can whip up any of the following home-scenes:

- Living Room

- Kitchen

- Bedroom

- Bathroom

select the ‘real-life’ option while styling your shoot, and we'll reach out to get all the info for your scene.

what does the stylist glow-up get me?

adding on a Stylist glow-up to your shoot gets you a jam session with one of our creative unicorns before the shoot, as well as someone on site to be your eyes and ears on shoot day. chat everything about your product, collab on ideas and put together the final touches to the shoot.

we require adding a Stylist to a shoot if:

  • you're looking to have more than 5 products photographed at once
  • your product requires assembly upon arrival
  • your shoot requires food/ingredients to be prepped
  • you have a shot style in mind that you want to recreate
  • you are in the food & beverage industry
  • you are in the fashion industry

can you send us inspo photos?

of course! log into your account and drop them right in the chatbox any time you want. 

you can send links, photos, @accounts, videos, pretty much any type of visual format. we'll add the inspo to your shotlist the next time we hop online.


how soon can I schedule?

as soon as your product arrives, we give it a quick inspection and fire you a text to let you know you're ready to schedule your shoot. shoots are often booked within a week of receiving product.

how long is my shoot?

you've got places to go, and people to see. we understand.

the shoot with pronto is 3 hours long.

what kind of props do we have?

we keep it simple when it comes to props. along with the necessary items needed for staging your product, our inventory includes basic decor, plants, and other nifty nick nacks that can polish up your photos. check out the full prop list once you’re logged into your dashboard.

if there’s something specific you’re looking for, let us know and we’ll send a search party through the studio.

don’t forget about our props shopping service! it’s the easiest way to get the specific props you need and requires virtually no effort on your end. click *here* to learn more.

do you shoot A+ Amazon content?

you bet we do! our team has worked with various Amazon merchants to improve their listing content.

you betcha pal! email us a return label, or ship it with your product and we'd be happy to send it back.

how does shipping work?

shipping to our studio in Canada is free from anywhere in North America. we'll store your product for up to 6 months and handle the entire shipping process. including Customs and commercial invoices.

as soon as we receive your product, we’ll text you to schedule your shoot!

we cover the cost of shipping your product. however, any extra items that don’t fit in a standard-sized box, as well as your product's return label, will be on your dime.
