I know this is peak wedding photography season, but I thought I’d add a product photography entry.
This week I’ve been working with a client to create some photographs for a range of exclusive luxury products. High class goods require high class images. Just look in any of the magazines seen in the first class lounge, the best hotel in town, or the foyer of the offices of major brands.
This project involved firstly creating set of test shot images with a range of lighting and backgrounds to give a selection of images for the client to choose from.
Then with the client, I sat and ran through the images to choose a favoured range of images for the various uses. Brochures, website, magazine adverts etc.
Then the last stage was to photograph the full range of products and select the final images for use in the clients campaign and web site.
This approach I often use with clients as:
- It allows them an opportunity to reduce the risk if they haven’t worked with me before. Test images are usually free of charge. The client only pays for these if they decide to use them.
- It allows a range of test shots, clients receive images in their initial style and a range of other styles if they would like some creative input.
- It gives more choice and ultimately a better final result.
So if you are considering some new or updated product photographs, why not take an opportunity to follow this process and contact me.
