Photography for online auctions

I was asked to photograph a second hand watch to be listed on a luxury watch auction site. The watch has never been worn so the plastic protective cover was still over the face and buckle of the watch. The vendor wanted to keep these in place so that any buyer can clearly see that the watch has never been worn.

Self Portrait

I always test the lighting set up on myself before I see a client, this morning I was setting up for two clients coming in for a portrait shoot. This image is taken from one of my test shots whilst tweaking the lighting…

Scooters

If I ever get to a point when I am struggling with my mobility I am going to get me one of these beauties. It was a pleasure to shoot this scooter and find out more about Britannia Mobility in Colchester. Furkan is passionate about offering a really good service to his customers and seems to go out of his way to make sure they get exactly what they need.

My first time lapse

Lock down means I can only do product photography but no shoots involving people. I have decided to learn a new skill which I will be able to use with my product but also landscapes. This is my first attempt, its not perfect but it meant I could learn from my mistakes I also learnt to stay patient and always take a flask and chocolate! This is made from 301 single photographs taken over 24 minutes.

Lockdown 2.0 – I can still shoot your products!

So I drank one too many Vodkas on Saturday after hearing the news of another the lock down. I knew it was coming but still felt surprised when it was announced, so now like everyone else I have come to terms with the fact that I can’t do anything about it and just have to make the best of the situation like last time but still it’s so arrrrgggghhhh!

I can’t have people in my studio but I can continue to do product photography, if you have a product or products you sell online and are looking for some cut out or life style shots then please get in touch on: 01206 511986 Please leave a message if I don’t answer and I will ring you back.

You can drop your product off to my studio in Colchester or send via courier and the same to get them back to you.

Various products shot and cut out on to a white background or shot and cut out on to a clear transparent layer. Shots taken for use on websites and in brochures.

Coronavirus Info

CORONAVIRUS INFO: My studio is currently still open, however because of the recent government recommendations if you have a shoot booked with me and would prefer to defer your shoot to another date you are free to do so.

For clients who still wish to go ahead I would like to reassure you that I am taking the following precautions for each shoot.

1) Not shaking hands on arrival

2) Washing my hands between each shoot

3) Disinfecting door handles after each shoot

3) Maintaining the recommended 1 meter distance from other people 

Product photography in the studio

Apparently these days you only have 15 seconds before your potential customers leave your website. That’s why professional photography for you, your website and your products is important to make you stand out from your competitors. If you need product cut out or on pure white backgrounds or lifestyle images please get in contact.
