Model Shots vs. Product Shots

Model shots vs. Product Shots

When considering your product imagery you have to take into account the multiple purposes your imagery will be used.

You will need lifestyle imagery that can be used in line with your brand. This provides a distinct number of problems from choosing your model, and photographer, to sourcing locations, and planning each shot down to the finest details.

Mini-la-Mode: Oh Baby

Oh… my! Kidswear

Oh… my! Kidswear is a new fashion label created by Johnathon Swead and Anna Davies. The idea was to create a ‘quintessentially British brand with an eccentric twist.’ They combine simple lines with fabulous, eye-catching design details. Those striking designs on high-quality fabric make their clothing unique.

Bright colours and bold patterns. To capture this in their photography and infuse life into their product requires intense attention to detail and excellent lighting. With our machines these challenges are simplified a great deal making the shooting process smoother, more efficient and more effective.

We absolutely love this pairing of the simplicity of the cut with the complexity of design and print that makes these stand out.

Selvedge has been using our services for a while now, and we really love receiving products from them. Their products range from dolls, to gorgeous scarves and throws. It is really nice to have customers like Selvedge, the products are amazing, and by working closely with them, we are able to give them exactly what they want.

There are many sides to every story and Selvedge is dedicated to finding and nurturing textiles from every angle life. All of us are inundated with textile sensation, from the moment we are taken and wrapped in our first blanket. It is a uniting aspect of all humanity and one that cannot be underrated.

It began as a small collection of textiles and designers. But has over the years grown into a haven of rarified textiles and esoteric treasures. Behind every item – whether a handmade candle or antique table linen is a story worth hearing.

The various nature of the items we needed to shoot for Selvedge was no problem with the machines. The versatility of the upright and horizontal together make what could otherwise have been a difficult and painful process quicker, and easier.


Angel’s Face – tutu cute

Angel’s Face was founded in 2007 by Keely Deininger. Keely comes from a design background and has worked in the industry for many years for brands such as H&M and Topshop. However, she really wanted to start her own business, to have autonomy and complete design freedom. Angel’s Face allowed her to do this, whilst watching her kids grow up.

This isn’t the first time we’ve shot Angel’s Face. The tutus are frilly and lacy which when it comes to product photography causes a whole range of problems. Removing backgrounds from this kind of product is, using traditional methods, immensely time consuming and difficult.

However, our Styleshoot machines automatically remove the background, meaning its easier to shoot, and has a quicker turn-around time. Meaning it’s cheaper and you get your images quicker.

A Bit More About Angel’s Face

Angel’s Face success began with the tutu – a super-soft, high-quality product which is wonderfully full of frilly nylon-chiffon layers. These beautiful skirts each come delivered in their own vintage-inspired striped hat box to make the garment a truly magical gift.

With an ever expanding collection of products, Angel’s Face has become a one-stop children’s fashion destination for all your party-wear needs! From knitwear and party shoes to hats and hoodies, the brand embodies a unique mix of fun and elegance which has made the brand popular the world-over.


Props to Anna & Louis

Anna & Louis is an online boutique for women and children, created and run by Isobel, who for many years worked in the fashion Industry. She spent a lot of time, day to day, searching for the perfect piece of cloth that reflects a bit of her personality for both herself and her children: smart, casual, simple, chic. Often her choices gained her a lot of compliments. However, she decided there was something missing, she wanted to spend more time working for herself and more time with her children. So, she created Anna & Louis.

Isobel is heavily influenced by her experience of the Spanish fashion marketplace and by Spanish style. She thus provides a boutique where she sources a number of great, interesting Spanish brands. With an online personal shopper section to her website she aims to provide a service to help you find clothes for any occasion or to create your individual look.

Isobel’s passion and dedication is inspiring and really shows. One thing that we found very interesting when she came in to do her shoot was her desire to use props in the product photography. This isn’t the first time we’ve had a client use props, the effect can be a simple but startlingly effective one. Here she used flowers, for example a foxglove, the white of the foxglove flower highlights the clean crisp white of the piece, whilst gently introducing the green of the stem which adds contrast lifting the image, and giving it a little more life.

Previous shoots like one we did a while ago with Quack Quack Moo, a babywear company, have also used props.

It brings the clothing to life, it gives movement and creates a dynamic element to the imagery which is refreshing when compared to the clean cut almost surgical product photography you normally come across.



Jakss Designer Children’s wear

Established in 1977, Jakss is one of the longest running Designer Children’s retailers in the U.K. Their store is based in London’s vibrant East End, a short walk from the Olympic Village. Over their long history Jakss has established itself as a leading destination for Children’s Luxury Fashion.

The demand for designer brands has grown over the years and Jakss has been at the forefront of that growth all the way, bringing designer brands into the U.K. market. They were the first to stock brands such as Oilily, Paul Smith, Ralph Lauren and Stone Island. Over their long trading history, they have seen the children’s wear market go through many changes and they pride themselves on bringing the very best Designer Labels to our Customers each season.

We have been working with Shelley from Jakss for over two years now. This season they sent in a huge number of high end children’s wear. Over the last couple of weeks we have shot 120 pieces of Kenso, a great deal of Montcler, Hugo Boss and other brands such as Stone Island.


Elephants and Beards: Love ‘Love Brand & Co’

We had Oliver from Love Brand & Co. come in with some of their new range.

Love Brand Co. are one of our earliest customers and we love them, they’re passion for Elephants and their exellent products. We particularly enjoyed the fullness of Oliver’s beard on his most recent visit, Dan had to restrain himself from touching it…


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.

Bright colours with sleek design paired with their passion and Ethos make this brand truly stand out.


A busy bustling week

We have had plenty to do over the last week!

A veritable horde of Menswear and Childrenswear brands to shoot.
For the highly anticipated online launch of Styleworx they needed product photography fast, and we were the solution.

Styleworx is a menswear brand which focuses on sleek design, and well imagined practical style.

We powered through the shoot but there was no time to rest at the end.

This was followed by 250 pieces of really fantastic, high end childrenswear!

From brands like Moschino, Versace, Stone Island, and Moncler.


No small task then! So we enlisted the iron will of iron wielding Anya, doing work experience with us over the Summer holidays to help us make our way through the mounds of unpacking, ironing and shooting of such a vast number of childrenswear items.

She is quickly becoming a very capable photographer using our machines, capturing her beautiful products in a manner that really highlights their high quality, and well considered designs.

House of Bibs combines contemporary designs with timeless fabrics for both practicality and fashion. We were especially taken with her baby bandana bibs.
