Most clients are looking for product photography for their website. Either shots on a plain background, or within a real environment for more atmosphere.
Studio Product Photography
These are a selection of studio-based projects, most of which are shot to use on websites. Dawes Jewellery was a big job taking tiny items of jewellery. Each had to be held up and lit to make the pieces look most luxurious. Valerie Kennard’s jewellery on the other hand was quite different to photograph as it was all on a grey background – adding another challenge. The up-market personalised items by Inkerman created another challenge as I was looking for appropriate backgrounds too.
A lot of the products simply have to be all shot on a cut-out white background. All be at the same angle and have identical lighting, such as all the packaging shots for Copenhagen Candles Company.
Location Product Photography
Sometimes products look best within a real life environment. Moving furniture and products to a location is no small feat, but gives a buyer a much better impression of how their furniture will look in a real home.
Luckily other products like the stone products here – shot for Chilstone – were already in the right position and beautifully aged too. In this instance the challenge is to find the best spot to shoot the products and what to include in the background.
Some projects like Jeremy’s Home Store was fun to do as their products were such vibrant colours. I shot all of the products ultra close-up making the photos extra punchy.
The sustainable products for Swallowtail Hill involved finding the right spot for each of the products. From a children’s toys sat next to a cricket pitch to bird boxes hanging from trees in a local park.
