Product photographers need a whole gamut of skills. Especially when it comes to reflective surface likes jewellery. My work with Etsy listings for DAM Jewellery happens to be one of those cases where being a well versed product photographer comes in handy. I photograph vintage jewellery for this Chesterfield, Derbyshire based seller on a regular basis. So we've come to a consistent style of nice airy whites and soft colours to show off these pieces. From simple flat lays for photographing brooches and earrings. To the use of small busts and props for necklaces and rings. Working with DAM Jewellery has always been a pleasure and I look forward to being their go-to product photographer here in Derbyshire. To hire me for your e-commerce product listings, call me on 07710 271457. In the meantime, take a peek at the product gallery below.
Derbyshire based Cosmikandi Jewellery is an Etsy seller that creates one of a kind pieces. To show off the quality of each handmade jewellery piece such as bracelets, necklaces and brooches we worked together to create some of the images seen below.
After trying a few different styles, Cosmikandi decided on natural earth tones for their second photo shoot. After which, Cosmikandi Jewellery began selling pieces at Urban Flamingo in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. The owner of Cosmikandi, Dolores, also ships to the USA for those of you interested in her stunning items created with only quality beads.
Previously, Dolores photographed each piece herself. Since our first photo shoot, it's clear that there's a fantastic result and from now on will be using professional images. I look forward to working with Cosmikandi Jewellery in the future. But for now, go see some of the product photography images below. Or even better, check out the Etsy site to grab some pieces for yourself at www.damjewellery.co.uk or visit Urban Flamingo in Chesterfield.
Product photos with a crisp white background are essential for amazon seller listings. After struggling with getting quality photos in this style, otherwise known as packshot photography, Ben from IBEX Retail contacted me to discuss their requirements.
IBEX Retail, located in Derbyshire, also required images that show off their products such as cupcake boxes and paracord survival bracelets, among other items. We discussed working with still life styles that compliment each product and shows a lot of detail so that amazon's zoom in feature works as intended. Which can be used in the future on IBEX's future websites.
So far, I've had three separate product shoots with this local business. And more to come in the near future. For now, here's a glimpse at some of the photos we've worked on within the past few weeks.
With Level Up Games stock it's impossible to show all of it. However the goal when photographing this retail shop in Canterbury was to highlight some of the more popular items along with get a sense of the store itself. That wouldn't be complete without capturing the owners of this geeky game shop, Gemma and Alex.
Pokemon can be found all over this gaming paradise nestled in one of the UK's most notable areas. These particular photos were taken for a YouTube video as a shop tour to be pushed out on Twitter and Facebook. Check out some of these on-the-shelf product photography below.
In case you're wondering why I chose to include both the black and white photo and colour copy of the owners it's because I feel the B&W version helps bring your eye to their special relationship as not just shop owners, but as husband and wife. After all, some of the best small businesses are built on strong family run and operated foundations.
