Shooting Fur and Lace is a Doddle with UShoot

The difficulties of shooting fur and lace and then cutting out and post-producing it in Photoshop are legendary.

With fur (or hair) you have to cut and then feather the edges, which creates and effect like the reality. It is quite painstaking and time-consuming and the end result isn’t a completely accurate representation of the product.

With lace, well there are a few options, but no shortcuts. You have to carefully cut it out.

However, with our StyleShoot machines these problems are erased. The intelligent software incorporated in the machine identifies and cuts out the background on a pixel level.

Sixteen47 shoot amazing plus-size mannequin photography at UShoot

How Sixteen47 shoot their amazing plus sized clothing with UShoot Studios.

Consumers want honesty. And traditionally the fashion market place has not been a particularly honest place. Plus-sized clothing is often shot on models who fall on the rather slim side. What this means when shopping online for plus-sized clothing is that you can’t get a real sense of what the clothes would look like.

Every fashion consumer is concerned with fit and flattering designs. So, it’s impractical for a shopper to gauge an item on a size 14 model when she actually wants to purchase a size 20.

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.

Gorgeous silk womens wear with the comfort of pyjamas by MaiMei

MAIMEI’S luxury silk women’s wear

Amber identified a niche in the market when she began working from home. She lived in her beloved pjs, boyfriend shirts and oversized jumpers – the aim was to be comfortable, however this left her feeling a little caught out when the doorbell would ring. She wanted effortless clothing that would make her feel good in body and in mind.

Having found nothing that hit the spot, she recognised a growing need for easy to wear womenswear, that’s as comfortable as it is elegant, so created a collection of tailored silk clothing that would feel like her favourite pyjamas, but look like evening wear.

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.

Miss D

Miss D boutique is a beautiful boutique store that sells fabulous, beautiful plus sized women’s clothing. These clothes have a focus on quality, and they are designed around people.

We love their range, from bold patterns to simplistic understated and elegant colours.

However, they had a problem, which was getting good photograph that shows the cut and style of the clothing on mannequin. With Plus-sized clothing still being a small (though growing) part of the fashion market, not every studio has a mannequin large enough and unless they want to spend a large amount of money purchasing one (then finding a place to store it and organising to get it to the studio for each shoot) their options were limited.

However, when they found out we had a plus-sized mannequin in our studio they were delighted.

We wheeled our mannequin into place by our vertical machine and set to work. The results… excellent.

Pyrus Shoot their newest collection at Ushoot Studios

We love having Ash come in with their fantastic ranges, he is enthusiastic, friendly and an extremely accomplished user of the vertical machine. So it is always a pleasure. It was his second visit to our studio recently and as last time he cracked on with a smile.

Ash and Lorraine met whilst studying at London College of fashion and then joined forces to establish Pyrus in 2005.

12 years on and Pyrus is doing very well with a really lovely selection of womenswear. The aim of their brand is easy wear modern classics. Clothes that won’t drop out of fashion next season, rather remain impervious to the swiftly changing courses of fashion fads.


Their designs are lovingly thought through, inspired by trips to everywhere from India to local art fairs and markets. Stocked internationally, across UK, Spain, France and even Japan, they now have a loyal following, and it is easy to see why.

Based in East London, UShoot was a great find for their product photography needs. The ability to control the shoot suits such a bespoke and unique brand very well. We very much look forward to seeing Ash next season with their newest ranges!
