How to get Product Photography to Beat your Competitors

How has product photography changed?

Product photography has changed because how it is used has changed. Back in the day, almost all purchases were made in store, with a few from catalogue, mail-order or over the phone. However, with the advancement of technology online shopping has exploded and consumers are now buying more things online than all the previously mentioned methods combined. Continue Reading..

The Healthy Back Bag

The Healthy Back Bag is all about bags for everybody for very occasion. They have been using Ushoot since day one.

Designed with their unique patented teardrop shape the bags are like no other. The idea behind the bag is to combine perfectly ideas of comfort, practicality and function all in a stylish designer bag. No easy task.

The bags shape is what really sets it apart, the cross body single-strap bag spreads weight down your spine making heavy loads feel lighter and making it good for your back. This isn’t what we really love about them though. The shape is intriguing but it’s their designs that really supply the wow factor.

Oxford Shirts

Oxford Shirts started over 30 years ago and has gone from strength to strength over the years, gradually evolving from knitwear into having full collections of Men’s, Ladie’s, and Children’s wear. Based in the picturesque market town of Burford in the Cotswolds their first shop has expanded over the years. They now have a space of 8 shop frontages, all sympathetically designed to incorporate the buildings heritage and character.

Their clothes are high quality designer fashion wear. They recently sent on a selection of men’s shirts for us to shoot. Their shirts come a variety of colours and designs, from the more ‘out-there’ designs to simple or bold block colours.

The brief for their shirt was detail and flat lay shots of the shirts requiring a careful and very precise uniformity to the imagery. This would regularly require a large amount of post-production, resizing, cropping, and using an overlay feature to perfectly replicate the imagery.

Our machines, with set lighting, and a handy overly feature allow us to style and shoot the shirts in precisely the same way on our flatbed Styleshoot machine quicky and efficiently every time, removing the need for extensive post-production. This uniformity allows for a neat display of the product both online and in print that shows clearly the difference in each shirts colour and print.

All our images go through a rigorous quality control process, which sometimes entails tweaking or even re-shooting of products to ensure the highest standards.

So Cosy – the softest wool blankets

As the name suggests So Cosy is about creating beautiful, luxurious, cosy wool products. It started out with blankets and they now have a range of products including throws, rugs, scarves and cushions.

They sent in a selection of blankets to be shot, and we can verify they are soft. Very soft, quite cuddly, we had to restrain ourselves from fondling them unnecessarily.

What makes these products so fabulous, so decadently luxuriously soft, is the wool. The blankets is has been said are ‘like being cuddled’. They use the finest Alpaca, merino and sheep wool.

 

So Cosy was so named in 2011 when Rimsky (a former fashion designer) and Vilija decided to quit their day jobs and concentrate wholly on their passion and create beautiful products, combining traditional and modern techniques and designs, to complement all interiors.

Why Alpaca?

The alpaca is a charming, gentle animal and its wool has some of the softest, most luxurious fibre found in nature. Alpacas live in a very harsh climate, where temperatures can fluctuate from minus 25 degrees at night to 25 degrees during the day. And so they have evolved this remarkable wool which is hardwearing, versatile and wonderfully soft.

Love Brand & Co. return for another Ushoot Session

It was an absolute delight to see Oliver from Love Brand &  Co. again.

He came in with a selection of new clothes that he needed product shots of at very short notice. We managed to squeeze him into a slot just in time. The reason he needed the images so quickly was he was jetting off to Costa Rica with these very same items to do their new lifestyle shoot on stunning sandy shores. We must admit we were somewhat jealous…

Love Brand & Co was founded by Oliver and Rose.

It was Oliver’s entrepreneurial spirit and design background and Rose’s heritage and knowledge of the Tropics, that led them to start a new swimwear label. Their Ethos was primarily to help save elephants from extinction in the wild. A concept they coined ‘Trunks for Trunks’. This was them expanded to include a variety of other charities that help endangered species.

The actual clothing encompasses with effortless ease the colours and spirit of summer. The beautiful clothing, with fun bright design, combined with their wonderful ethos are what make this a brand to love.

Love Brand & Co. is committed to helping elephants and other endangered species in the wild. which is why they donate 5% of all their revenue to charity.

Bonsoir of London

Bonsoir of London came to us the other week with an Emergency. They needed their range of luxury nightwear to be shot, and they needed it now!

They were established in 1926, an era that celebrated the cocktail pyjama, where fashionable hosts entertained guests in their luxury loungewear, and they’ve been going strong ever since.

 

Bonsoir celebrates this timeless elegance, offering stylish designs carefully tailored to the highest standard using the finest quality fabrics, to ensure durability and exceptional comfort.

Their philosophy is one of exceptional quality, style and comfort.
When coming to capture these garments and properly expose them as the high end products they are, it takes a high quality of photography. So when they found us at Ushoot they were quite pleased.

170 items to be shot, using our new ModelShoot service as well as our product photography, and all in three to four days.
The gauntlet was laid down and we bent to pick it up.

We quickly discovered the difficulties of shooting these garments. Brushed cotton and silk creased quickly and easily meaning constant re-ironing. Plus capturing the garments in a manner that really showed the quality of the materials and the tailoring created new hardships.

We persevered, and our obstinence in the face of impending frustration was rewarded with done.
