I am often contacted by clients that need product photos on white.  This is great for me because its actually one my specialties.  If you are going to be selling on amazon at all they actually require that your photos meet these standards. And even if you aren’t going to be selling on amazon having professional product shots on pure web white can give you that edge to succeed over your competition.  Below are some examples of different styles of shots on white I offer.

This past year (2016) I was contacted by Ryan over at Dylanlex. Ryan and his brother were very impressed with my work online and we quickly set up meeting.  We sat down at a local coffee shop La Colombe.  Before hiring me Ryan was doing most of the photography for the company by himself and I could sense he was a little overwhelmed. The trouble he was having was isolating the images on a pure white background. Since this happens to be my specialty this made for really excellent collaborative experience. Ryan knew exactly what he wanted, but really enjoyed the flair I was able to bring his brand.  He and I really clicked a were able to find a look that really worked with just a little back and forth. Below you can see some samples of the jewelry photography I delivered .

I recently have made some changes to my site and portfolio. The site now focuses on my digital product photography and commercial photography.

Above is a shot I composed and captured for Tim Andreadis over at 20th Century and Fine Period Design. Tim works in the antique business. Buying antiques, reselling antiques, estate liquidation etc.  Tim hired me to get some sharp new images for his new website.

Tim had a lot of unique items. In fact none were quite the same. There were items the size of large sofas, and items as small as a bowl.  In some ways as a product photographer this can be a challenge. Setting light and composition can sometimes take up to 70% if not more of the shooting time. So as you can imagine with unique items it has to be reset each time which made it a challenge. What really made this shoot such a success was Tim’s passion for his work and his willingness to collaborate with me. He was also able to communicate to me his vision for his site, which helped me hone each image to near perfection.

I wrote this blog post  to help you understand what it takes to get the highest quality images for your needs.  From the biggest studios down to smallest of small photo shoots, the best images always come out of everyone’s ability to work together as a team. As a Product Photographer Im always looking to hear the most you have to say about what your vision is down to the most minute detail. Because ultimately you know more about what you do then anyone else.  I take this approach because it is one of the best ways to hear and get the best ideas on the table and into implementation. Which is ultimately everyone’s goal.

I shot this series at the famed Murderhouse in Germantown. Its an old Victorian that my band used to play there in the early 00’s and late 90’s. They had some great basement shows as well as a pretty cool punk rock scene back in the day.
