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 https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/COSMIKANDI or visit Urban Flamingo in Chesterfield.
Being a food photographer has many rolls. One is to provide images for advertising such as company websites, brochures and social media. All of which Price & Fretwell in Tibshelf Derbyshire hired me for. They provide aged meats that are sourced locally to high end restaurants and catering companies.
After discussing their goals we agreed on a dark moody set of images that really highlights their products. Ranging from beef, pork, and chicken among other foods. Another goal of theirs was to capture the ageing fridge where beef for example, is hung. Including some shots that show the natural colours of the meats and the colour of the actual lighting that is produced by Price & Fretwell's state of the art ageing process. As seen in the last image.
I often see these images shared on their facebook and instagram page. So it was great to receive some feedback from Nathan Price such as, "The photos look fantastic, we have had some very positive feedback and also we have had some orders from the marketing that has included them. Darren in particular has been very pleased with them."
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.
Advertising a company and putting a face or faces to a brand is essential in today's business world. So I was honoured when Rebecca of BHCC reached out to me about photographing herself and the other company directors to update the company website. We spoke about what kind of impression their website should give and what the photographs should convey. Which led us to meet in Chesterfield where BHCC was holding a team meeting.
The outcome was a mix of environmental portraits or head shots. Along with photographs of Ann, Mark, Rebecca and one of their consultants at work. We even fit in a few team photos. Quite a few can be seen on their website and social media. You can also see a small selection below. To have your team photographed please reach out to me at 07710 271457.
