Product Photographs on a white background.
Product photographs taken on a white background are probably my number one request. They feature in just about every website and catalogue where the product needs to stand out on a plain background. Product photographs on a white background also make a designers job easier, as they will blend into a website using white as its main background colour such that you can’t see the edges of the photo itself. You can tell when a high quality design and good photographs have been used as you can’t see a grey, yellow, or magenta colour cast as the so called white photo background doesn’t match the background of the page.
Most of the products on white backgrounds tend to be small and can easily be undertaken in our Cambridge based photo studio. We have a drop-off and pick-up facility available, whereby you can just deliver your products to us, we’ll photograph them on the white background and upload your images where you can download at your leisure and then pick up your products when you next drop by. We regularly photograph, household goods, food, jewellery, luxury goods and clothing against a white background. Though we have moved studios to photograph larger items, for this we needed a bigger studio and a bigger white background. Its not that many places that can fit in over a hundred elephants !!

Models, Make-up Artists, Hair and Fashion Stylists – Adding a photographer to your Cambridge Creative Network
I’m always on the look out for other creatives and to expand my local cambridge creative network. Not that it excludes creatives further afield I should point out.
I have a short list of hairdressers, stylists and models who I occasionally work with. But this year I’d like to expand this list and invite you to work together on a couple of studio and outdoorRead More »
Here’s a few fashion photography clothing shots. The brief was to give a fashion catalogue view of the garment and then show some details. Unusually in the brief was that the main image wasn’t to show the whole garment.
Fashion shots like these are regularly used for online fashion stores and clothing catalogues. I also provide fashion photographs and packshots where garments are worn by models or placed on mannequins.
I also provide fashion lifestyle photography showing clothing collections worn in the style and location of your target clients. This ranges from the exclusive location for high class fashions, to the town and country locations of high street names.

This was an image that started out as a test shot, but I rather like it.
Food photography is generally about associations. Fruit is good for you, so the subject here really speaks for itself. As a product shot, you have to think what else does it need. How about natural ? A wood surface ? But it seems the trend to associate anything healthy with a white background. Clean healthy, natural, white, wood. So here we have it.
There are two objects in the background, just small drink glasses but suitably out of focus to just add a little lift to the subject.

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.
