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.
