When considering your requirements for commercial photographers
Cumbria clients might like to consider which of the various genres that we cover such as fashion, advertising, food & drink, hair & beauty, product or interior photography is most appropriate to them. A high quality commercial shoot can be a big undertaking. There are a great many things that need to be thought about. Lighting and the ability to actually create images rather than simply capture them can either make or break a commercial shoot. We can advise, help and guide you through this process and create the images that you have in mind.
We offer photography for a wide variety of markets backed by an extensive knowledge of photographic lighting techniques taken from many years working in television, film and theatre. We are able to offer an unrivalled service backed by both our creative flair and our technical expertise in the field of image making. Product photography and food photography whether for a hotel or restaurant are just two areas where we are able to offer our customers a little bit more than the norm and let you stand out from the crowd giving you a creative edge over your competitors. Interior photography is another example whereby the results can be transformed by properly and creatively designed lighting bringing life and interest to an otherwise flat and lifeless image. Let your subject matter become three dimensional and stand out on the page, poster, bill board or computer screen giving life and colour to your subject matter.
As commercial photographers based in the Lake District we have a lot of experience of food photography and that is an area that requires great patience and an eye for every last detail. We would normally expect to work with at least one and usually two or more people representing the client who understand the dishes or produce being photographed. It is not just the food itself but the way it is presented, what it is placed upon and the setting, backdrop and atmosphere created by the lighting and the props that makes for the final shot. The same dish could be presented and lit in many different ways giving a completely different image depending on the market that you are aiming to attract. Maybe you want to place your dish in a cosy, ambient restaurant setting with people either in the foreground or background or maybe you are looking for a kitchen type setup showing the food at its preparation stage with a chef and kitchen staff in the frame.
Product photographs are often referred to as pack shots. Presenting your product in the right light and creating the right image is vitally important to the success of your advertising, whether it be for a brochure, catalogue, website or poster. We can help you create the right look and feel to your pack shots, making your product really stand out and look its best. Perhaps you want to portray an expensive and exclusive look or maybe you are after a lower budget and widely accessible look. We can pretty much do anything.
We are increasingly being approached by models and prospective models to shoot portfolio material for them, sometimes also known as actors head shots. If you are looking for a model portfolio photographer Cumbria clients can come to us. We have a guide that we can e-mail out to you which explains some of what is involved, gives you some things to think about prior to organising your head shot or portfolio shoot and gives you an idea of pricing. Once you have looked through our guide then we can chat to you in more detail and get a shoot organised for you to help you build a portfolio of quality images that you can use to promote yourself in your chosen market.
A commercial shoot can be a big undertaking and can be quite daunting, expecially if you haven't done anything like this before. We can guide you through the whole process from pre-planning, planning, shooting and post-production. We will help you to get the most from your shoot and from your investment both in terms of finance and of time. We want you to be delighted with the resultant images and for those images to work hard for you and your company or product to increase awareness, exposure to potential customers and profitability. We will explain all the details or what is involved and what is required of you in terms of preparation, planning and what you can do to make the most of the time that we are working together to complete your photo shoot. Our commercial work is fully covered by public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance as well as equipment insurance for immediate backup replacement should any piece of equipment fail during a shoot.
