Lifestyle choices for product photography

Lifestyle choices for product photography will leave your customers with a great impression!

When it comes to showing off your products it’s often a good idea to keep things natural and let the viewer see the whole picture. Give your customers a glimpse of what to expect when they buy your goods and choose a lifestyle shoot to showcase your products.
Technical pictures are great for detail and information but a bigger picture of your product in use will give greater contact with your viewers and put things into context. Consider a lifestyle shoot and get up close and personal, your customers will love it.

Shoots don’t have to be studio based or with expensive models and as a result many sellers can get great results in their own offices, warehouses or even homes. Our location lighting can be set up anywhere for perfect results which means your items are displayed in “real” situations with clear indications of how your products are used and seen. A perfect way to get into your buyers head.

If you sell online and are looking for something extra special, why not give us a call and have a chat about your ideas. We might even put you in the picture.

Now that’s a wrap!

Products and photographers

Products and photographers

Products and photographers go together well in advertising. Use a blend of essential product information mixed with enticing descriptive narrative finished off with visual presentation showcasing your goods in such a way that your potential customers are in no doubt about what they’re buying from you, and Bob’s yer uncle.  A co-operative that’s worked well since.. well.. since selling was invented! Let’s face it images sell!

Search for any product online and you no doubt start by typing a description of what you are looking for but your expectations are almost always going to be visual – i.e. how does it look? You’re gonna need good images. There’s no way you’ll sell with just words on a screen. No taste, touch, smell or sound but a darn good image will really wow your customers.

Getting your stock photographed and ready for online viewing is essential if you want to stay ahead of the game and with online shopping racing ahead of the high street retailers it’s essential you stay in front of the competition. Your business needs to be seen so get your act together, pick up the phone and dial 0784 3099903 and put your stuff in front of our cameras.

Go on.. get noticed.

Graduates

Full of joy, excitement and happiness.
We love ’em.

Following a bunch of freshly qualified young men around Leeds University at their Conferment is challenging and full of twists and turns. With hundreds of other graduates to navigate around and their friends, families and loved ones all vying for photographic space we’re pushed to the limits to get our work done.
But with some gentle coaxing and persuading we manage to get enough to fulfil our task for the day and after a tough half a day on campus we’re happy with what we got in the bag.

Thank you guys for letting us photograph your very special day.

Who’d have though working overtime would have been such good fun?

Here’s a group of people with the necessary skills to get things done.

Go to work

Comb hair, apply makeup, change into corporate T-shirt
Grab a glass of fizzy or crack open a bottle of beer
Step in front of the cameras and just go for it!
Laugh at your pictures, re-shoot, have another drink, get more pics, laugh at everything.
Finish the nibbles then head out on the town for a great night out.

Now THAT’s a photoshoot.

Floored

Commercial stuff. It’s not all that easy. Floored!

Starting with a brief to photograph a floor. A very nice floor I’d have you notice. But still… I got floored.

I would never have imagined so much furniture needing to be shifted. I mean.. looking for a space to shoot without it being covered in chairs, tables, stools, baby seats, high chairs, benches and many more oddments of furniture. Makes you think about what goes into a pub these days.

Gotta admit, I never expected this when I took on the job.

Imagine a scene from a movie set.. as they’re preparing to shoot.

Ladders, drills, tool boxes, tarps, paint pots and a whole menagerie of workers jostling for space.
Boxes of brushes, buckets of mess. TV installers, electricians, chefs talking at me. Flippin heck! Aaargh.. where do I start? What do I focus on? (Hey I made a funny!)

But seriously, somehow I have to get a picture out of this mayhem and just look at the mess they’ve made. Drilling dust all over the place, paint drops on that beautiful oak and the whole place full of new recruits undergoing interviews, sitting in “my” chairs and eating at “my” tables! Waaah!

Floored

 

So between sweeping the floor and shifting all manor of tables and chairs to suit the composition I think I’ve had enough after two and a half hours of scrabbling amongst bar room decor and dodging co-workers to grab a shot. Don’t get me wrong these were very nice people, really nice.. but when you’re asked to shoot a floor you at least expect to see it.

At least my clients are happy with the results so I guess  all that work, all that effort, all that sweat was worth it working in a pub without beer.

Bugger this.. I need a drink.

Headshot Hotshot

Headshot.. boom!

More and more businesses are dealing with an online presence so it’s important to show everyone who they’re dealing with.
A professional photo is a must, you want your clients to see who is doing business with them. Start with a face. Everyone likes a face.

Studio quality headshots are easily shot with the right equipment and know how. They don’t even need to be in a studio! Heck, in the space of your office or even your living room you too can get yourself in the frame and have great profile images for LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Skype or your own website.

Get noticed. Get smart. Get a professional portrait.

It only takes a minute girl..
