Product Photography

Technical product photography is not something I do very often, but I really enjoy the challenge. Quite different from photographing events, or even property, the photographer controls everything when it comes to product photography. Firstly the background. For most product photography a white background is preferable, as the products need to be shown clearly on […]

Business profile photography

It’s now on the rental market.  Since writing this post, an estate agent used some of my images for their advertising, and it shows that great photography works, as […]
