You all know I spend a lot of time photographing people in my studio, but did you know that the truth is I also spend a lot of time photographing products for businesses?

Commercial photography is a wonderful creative avenue I stepped into about 8 months ago and I am now working on multiple on-going projects to supply high quality images for a range of purposes from flyers to e-commerce websites.

 Here is a recent setup for a bottle of alcohol in my studio.

Here is a recent setup for a bottle of alcohol in my studio.

I'll let you into a little secret.... Its being photographed on a wardrobe mirror from my bedroom as a child!

Suddenly all my reflective surfaces, vinyls and worktop off-cuts that have been stored in the studio are making sense and more importantly making the difference to my customer products being photographed!

Now you may think "meh, bet the final image doesn't look all that impressive", but I think it does so here it is! 

 This was a test product image taken from the camera with the exact setup from above and a little editing on the pc after.

If this was an image for a customer I would re-centre the label at the top of the bottles neck using Photoshop just to ensure the product is show at it's best. This was an alignment flaw in the packaging process on this one but I decided not to do this for the test. With a little creativity and know how an image of a product can be elevated to a more stylish and interesting image to get it noticed.

How much do my commercial fees cost?

Although each job is priced up according variables like how much time is spent photographing, post processing and travelling etc, the average ball park figure is £10 per image (product). For this you get the high resolution image and a copyright release to use the image where-ever you like.

If you run a business and want to chat about your products being professionally photographed then drop me a message or give me a call.
