This week I have the lovely Steph from La Di Da Interiors with me, painting my bureau. Steph is an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint approved stockist and owner of a fabulous shop of interiors, luxuries and gifts in Andover. She also runs an interior design service plus regular painting and craft workshops, details of which are available on her website, www.ladida-andover.com.
I have worked with Steph several times over the past year, photographing her shop, events and upcycled vintage furniture, which she sells nationwide via her website.
Many people will try to take corporate photos on their phones, which I admit are offering far better cameras now. I have recently upgraded my iPhone just for the better camera. The difference is that with a professional photographer you have not only a far superior piece of hardware in the camera, which offers more control over exposure and tone in images (I don’t want to get too technical, indeed I don’t like to) but you also benefit from the skills and expertise behind the camera. This means you end up with expertly composed, lit and edited photos to portray that professional edge. People often think they can get away with taking their own product photos and many can produce some pretty decent results, but it is well worth investing in a professional corporate photo shoot, even if it’s not a regular thing, in order to have at least a few top quality images to promote your brand. Just talk to Steph for confirmation of this!
I have worked with several local businesses to help provide professional photos for their products and services. I can offer studio product photo shoots or on location photography including events, such as Steph's Annie Sloan paint workshops, details online. I have even spent a couple of hours in a field of pigs to take some corporate shots for Greenfield Pork, which I will feature in another blog post soon! If you’d like to enquire about a corporate photo shoot please get in touch via my Contact Page. I look forward to hearing from you!
