Bar & Barrel Whisky Cups and box – Product photography for Amazon and Website

Great glasses, cubes and a super nice black box. Is this a photographer's nightmare?

Read how the photographer captured the blacks, reflections and transparencies.

This was an advertising photography job for a client to be use on Amazon e-commerce. It was photographed in our studio in Melbourne by the commercial photographer Jose Aguiar.

This product is very nice. The cups and ice cubes are great and the box is super cool and very well produced. 

All reflective products are difficult to photograph, mainly when they have the shape of cups and bottles as they reflect a large area. When we add the fact that we also need to show their transparency while controlling the reflections, the difficult escalates even more.

In addition to the reflections and transparencies, we also had to show the quality of the box. The box is made of black material with matt areas, low sheen areas engravings and writing. 

The lifestyle photos were also done in our studio in Melbourne and the client has provided us with this full of personality barrel.

I love to see clients that invest in quality products. I enjoyed the technical challenges and the result I think represents well the product's quality. I hope you like it. 

These products are already available in Amazon Australia. Search for "Bar & Barrel amazon".

Underwater phone case – Product photography for Amazon and Website

See our underwater and beach photos all done in the studio during winter in Melbourne

Read how the photographer captured the product under the water and on a beach.

This is another product that is used outdoors and mainly in summer that we photographed in the studio simulating beach scenes. This product is in fact two products. One is a case where you can put your mobile and swim with it. You can even operate the mobile under the water. You can take pictures with your own mobile while all wet in a beach.

The second product is a bag that is also waterproof. It has 3 zip locks to prevent the water to go inside. It is great to put your documents, watch and money and take with you everywhere. I see this product selling a lot this summer.

For the underwater photo, I used my own mobile and an aquarium and a bit of blue dye. It was good fun to play with the water and bubbles. 

The beach photo was also done in the studio with a bit of sand and some shells. This is my favourite. It is warm and shows well that you can count on this product for protection and just have fun.

The professional model is Georgia. It was a pleasure to work with her. Very professional and friendly.  I do not know if she enjoyed the constant water droplets. I have made the studio as warm as I could to accommodate with the summer apparel.

To show how the product can be used, we started placing the bag as a belt around the belly but Georgia said that it was not fashionable. The girls will probably use it crossed. I think she was right. It looks better that way.  I love when people that participate in the project give their opinion. 

The lighting for Georgia's photos is a simulation of the sun at the end of the day. Side and warm.

This product is already available in Amazon Australia. Search for "offshore drift bag".

Forever Sharp Knifes – Product photography for website

Professional Product Photos for websites, catalogues and point-of-sale.

The professional photographer explains the difficulties in photographing reflective products.

These knives are special. They are super sharp and they keep sharp regardless of what you do with them. They are amazing but this job was special to me for a much more personal level.

The knives are special because they showed me how challenging product photography can be and how good is my studio lighting technique is.

When I was contacted by the client to photograph the knives, I had estimated that it would be a "medium" difficulty product due to its reflections. I have photographed several metal and reflective items and was not expecting this product to be harder than the ones I photographed before. 

Soon after I positioned the lights and took the first testing shots, I noticed the product was much harder to photograph than I anticipated. The size of each knife and its curves, engravings, sharp edges and grooves made me keep moving and repositioning lights for a few hours.

When I finally adjusted everything for one knife, I had to do it again for the next one. The sizes and the angles are unique in each one and even a small angle change affected the final result.

Despite the difficulty of the product, It did not took me too long to find solutions for each issue. I got surprised by how fast I found in my head a solution and how many times it worked well within only a few fine adjustments.  It was a very good feeling to know how natural and fast I retrieved the knowledge of these years of professional photography work in the studio.

 

This product and this job is special for still another reason. The client was with me in the studio and told me the sales person demonstrates the qualities of the knife by using it on a hammer head and after to cut a tomato. It shows that the knife never loses its sharpness.

We replicated this demo in the studio and you can see the results here.

I liked so much one of the photos from this demo that entered it on a the AIPP Australian Professional Photography Awards. It received a Silver Award in the commercial category.

A big thanks to the client that allowed me to enter their photos in the competition and to show them here.

These product can be purchased from several major retail stores or directly from the distributor. Search for "Forever Sharp Knives".

Floating bean bed for Amazon – Product photography

Professional Amazon product photographer explains how he created a beach scene in the studio during winter in Melbourne

Product photography lifestyle in Studio

What an interesting product! It is a large floating bean bag with the Australian Flag.

In addition to super sharp and nice product photos, this job also required some clever photos showing the product in-use. It is used as a floating bed on swimming pools and beaches but can also be used inside the house as a comfortable bean bed to watch tv. We captured it all inside our warm studio in Wantirna South in Melbourne. 

We could have taken the product and the model to a beach but, in Melbourne during winter, it is quite cold and wet. We decided to photograph it in our studio.  

To get the beach look, we got a pack of New Zealand river sand that is nice and clean and asked the professional model Georgia to help us. A bit of water and some creative posing and angles and the job was done.

For the beach scene, I included a beach photo from one of my trips to Brazil to be on the background.

This product will be available soon in Amazon Australia.

This was the first time I used styrofoam beans. They fly everywhere and are very light.

We used 6 bean bags of 500gm to fill the bed and It takes quite some time to transfer all beans. They do not fall as fast as I imagined.

I used a light stand to hold the bags in place. It helped a bit but at the end, there were beans everywhere. Haha.

*Highly Professional and Intuitive* is the only way to describe the seamless/flawless experiences i have had with Zoom Studio.
Jose is, not only one of the best photographers in the country, he has a firm grasp/understanding on how to bring out the best result of the project in hand.
I have been running businesses for over 30 years and NEVER have i encountered another operator with such passion and creative ability that goes beyond the norm. Not to mention going beyond the call of duty in order to achieve your goal.
His thoughtful input into my projects were often better than what i had in mind.
Will see you soon Studio Zoom for my next venture.

Delighted with the results of my product photos by Jose. I contacted a few different photographers, but Jose at Zoom Studios definitely came back to me with the most detailed action plan and ideas, before I had even engaged him. Helped me every step of the way and kept me informed. He had some great ideas and the photos turned out even better than I imagined. Would highly recommend.
