Product Photography.

Products are usually shot in the studio when possible since lighting control is very necessary to show the product in its best light.

Frequently, however, delivery schedules of the client may be tight, production may have experienced delays, or the product is just too big to bring to a studio, so we have to take the studio to the product instead.

As challanging as the studio work is, shooting product on location is much harder. On location, it is very difficult to shut off intrusive available lighting from overheads (fire regulations) or sky lights on the roof, oil soaked floors stain paper seamless, workers take short cuts across the paper seamlesses, machinery cramps the shooting space, fork lifts knock over the hot lights.....staff lunch breaks occure just as the shot is ready to shoot.

Frequently we have to shoot after the working day so that we can shut off the lights and workers are not hovering over the product. Not to mention the transportation of all studio equipment.

We specialize in location product photography making it look as thought it was shot in the studio when that style is required despite all the problems presented us. Other times, the product is required to be shown in its installed location which then must be manicured to look as attractive as possible. At the least, all distractions that would take the focus away from the subject product must be removed or toned down. In industrial situations, this can be the biggest part of the photo shoot.
