A few people have asked me lately whether I shoot products. Well…. it depends.
I used to annoy the crap out of my university students by answering all their questions with, “Well, it depends.” And I’m going to do that here, too.
Do I shoot products?
If your product is a piece of clothing or an accessory of some kind, then I am more than happy to incorporate it into a portrait session, or to hire a model and do a shoot specifically to show off that product. Here are some recent images from a test shoot with the gorgeous Grazielle Lima.
If you have small-ish products and you’d like some creative images that make your products look deliciously desirable, then yes, I can shoot that. Ideally I would also do personal branding portraits for you and your team as well. 😉 Here are some that I shot for Turramurra Drapery.
But do I do product shots for e-commerce sites? Hell no! If you ask me to take straight up and down plain Jane photos of your super-duper funky new fandangled widget-y thing from front, back, and side so that you can use it for your ‘add to cart’ pages, well…. let’s just say I’d rather not. Nor do I do ‘invisible mannequin’ style shots (usually called ‘ghosting’ in photography circles).
But I know people who do. And they do it well.
So if you’re looking for the kinds of photos you see above, then yes, I’ll happily talk with you about what you need. If you’re after ‘proper’ product photography, then I will happily help you find a photographer who can do what you’re looking for.
And then everyone’s happy!
