Our approach to product photography

We have shot literally tens of thousands of products and as you would expect, our studio is equipped with an array of high quality digital cameras and lighting. However, it’s our approach to product lighting, attention to detail and understanding of how to produce images that will sell your products that really make's all the difference.

It's not the expensive cameras but the quality of light that breeds life into any product picture. Used correctly light will flatter your products textures, shapes and details while capturing mood and ambience. The end result is exceptional photography that presents your product in the best possible way. Allowing even the simplest of products to achieve maximum impact as vibrant and eye catching images.


Invisible mannequin and ghost clothing photography

Sometimes what you don’t see matters most. Photographing clothing often involves a sophisticated technique known as invisible mannequin or ghost photography.  Invisible mannequin photography showcases garments as if they are being worn. Nothing but the garment is shown in the final picture allowing for regular updating and changes to your website without disturbing the websites continuity, feel and look.


Jewellery product photography

Jewellery can involve quite complex photographic sets due to the inherent mix of reflective surfaces, textures, colours and shapes, that between them require a selection of various lighting and retouching techniques. Ensuring all the items details and best qualities are captured and enhanced.





Drink and bottle product photography

Careful lighting of drinks and bottles ensures an enhanced but accurate portrayal of the contents, retaining good colour and translucency within the liquid. While consideration to the way light reacts to the curvature of a bottle or glass, avoids interference from unwanted reflections and preserves the readability of the label.

Technology, gadgets & devices product photography

Capturing and distinguishing between surface textures such as chrome, glass, plastic and metallics is the key to photographing technology devices and gadgets. Light is used to separate and hi-light different elements, with the aim of displaying as many details of the subject as possible.

This type of product often has displays and LED's that need to be shown clearly and illuminated without the surrounding ambient light degrading their colour saturation and definition.


Photoshop retouching and manipulation

We can further refine your product photography images by retouching imperfections and image manipulation. Even small adjustments, such as removing an inappropriate logo, repairing a damaged product or changing a colour can makes a huge difference to the final image.

Many products that are small in size are displayed on web pages at many times their natural size. Without the retouching ability of photoshop this enlarged view would not only allow the admirer to appreciate the detailed splendour of an item, but also every minute imperfection and speck of dust which would not normally be seen with the naked eye.

We view photoshop as part of our overall creative toolbox and use it on nearly every assignment in ways that compliment and enhance the pure photography work. What can be achieved using photoshop is fairly extensive and enables us a level of creativity and the ability to solve product photography problems that would otherwise be unattainable using solely conventional photographic techniques.
