Product photography for Amazon and Website of Wine Cooler and Pourer

Product advertising photos of a new and fantastic product.

Lifestyle photography for Amazon of a gift box of a wine cooler, poorer and stopper.

This was the second job for the same client and it is an great feeling when we have the client returning for more. 

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

This product is very innovative. The stainless-steel tube you put on the fridge and when it is time for a cup of wine, you take it from the fridge and cups and ice cubes are great and the box is super cool and very well produced. 

There are many challenges when photographing transparent and reflective products and this one is reflective, round and needs to be inside a wine bottle. The balance between reflections and transparencies areas, shadows and highlights need to be real and nice. I think the results are quite good.   

We also had to show the quality of the box. The box is made of black paper with matt and low sheen area with engravings and writing.  

All the photos including the lifestyle ones were done in our studio in Wantirna South (Melbourne).

These products are already available in Amazon Australia. Search for "Wine Chiller Stick, Stainless Steel Wine Bottle Cooler with Aerator, Pourer and Stopper".

Commercial photography – Wantirna Club building and rooms

Commercial and advertising photos of an iconic local club

Wantirna Club is located in Wantirna South and it is an iconic business. A place that all locals know and is a great place to have a drink, have dinner or lunch with family and friends. They also have rooms for hire for parties and business events.

This was a big job. It took us 4 days of shooting to get all we needed.

We photographed 7 internal areas, the external areas of the building and lifestyle photos using clients and models.

The clients helped a lot with the models and checking and selecting the photos. I photographed with the camera connected to an iPad so the client and my assistant had access to the photo seconds after the click. We used the iPad to select and adjust items, angles and lighting to get the results we want.

In order to reduce the amount of time and to disturb less the normal activities of the club, we had two sets of lights ready at any time. While we were working on a room, we had the next room partially prepared. We only used battery-powered studio flashes to be able to move them around fast.

You can see in this article a few of the photos of the building, meeting rooms, party rooms and bar area. There is another article about the food, food preparation area and the bistro.

I hope you enjoy the photos.

Cosmetic product on white-background and in-use

We invited the experienced model Kiara Green for the project. We wanted to show the colour and texture of the product as well as where and how it can be used. 

The products are already available and you can purchased them on-line on the clioandclea.com site.

Amazon product photography of travel pillow – Lifestyle photography for advertising

White background photography and lifestyle. Are they both important?

White background photography. We all need it.

The client is selling this product on Amazon US and Amazon Australia. It is a great product and I have used it on my last trip. Good size, soft fabric and light.

Amazon allows only a very limited number of photos, so the client decided to purchase one lifestyle photo and invest more on the photos with white background.

The photos with a white background or that have had their background removed, are great to show the product without any distraction. We use them to specify what is included in the purchase as in the case of the main photo (top of page) where it shows the bag, ear plugs and eye mask. It is also the best way to show the size of the product as you can see in this photo.

 

 

Lifestyle photography. Why do they work?

This lifestyle photography was selected by the client. It shows very well how the product fits in a person. It also introduces the idea that the product can be used at home when relaxing and reading a book.

Other lifestyle photos we prepared.

These lifestyle photos show a clear connection of the product with the activities related to travelling. It shows how the product can be carried and be part of the action.

These two lifestyle photos were done inside a car showing the use of the product during car trips.

It was a cold and raining afternoon as it is typical of a Melbourne winter. We want to create an early afternoon scene and a night scene. I positioned the flashes in a way to create the lighting as if coming from the internal car light. To create the night effect I used the high speed on the camera and flashes to overpower the sun. We left the windows wet as it gave us nice reflections.

Photography of products for clinics and labs – Product photography for Website and advertising

Gloves and plastic bags for health clinics and laboratories.

Advertising product photography for website

The client brought a series of cleaning and protection products they sell for labs and clinics. These products are very functional and our challenge was to show their features, materials texture, quality and size.

The first set of products were gloves of multiple materials and colour. Each type of glove has its use and characteristics. We selected a hand's position that is interesting without been awkward or ugly while still shows their filling and thickness. We included a few closeups to show the special texture on the finger tips. 

The cleaning cloths come out quite nice with the texture of the fabric.

The plastic bags for biological material are very interesting. Some are thick and strong, others transparent and strong. All are very large capacity and sometimes reflect more light that a photographer would like. Haha.

It was a pleasure to photograph for https://procleansupplies.com.au/. I hope you like it.

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".

Silver Awards at 2019 APPA – Australian Professional Photography Awards

Judging and results

Category: Commercial Photography - Commissioned work - Prints

I am a great supporter of the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) and the APPA (Australian Professional Photography Awards).

I believe the annual awards, both at the state level and national level, help a lot the professionals in improving their skills and the quality of the professional work they deliver. Improves the photography industry in general.

I have entered the AIPP - APPA awards for many years and have received several awards. See some of them here.  

During the last 3 years, I also judge a few categories at the AIPP - Victoria and New Zealand Professional Photography Awards. It is a great honour and privilege to contribute.

I admire and respect the comments of all judges. They are very experienced professionals. Each one with their own life experiences, interpretations and beliefs. It is always interesting to hear their reactions and comments.

All photos on this competition are prints with a minimum 25 cm on the longest size, so, what you see in this screen is not exactly what the judges have seen. I have always printed my own work in fine art paper and print for other photographers and clients as well. The impact of the image printed on a texturized paper or glossy paper under the judging lights is quite special and different from the image on a monitor. 

This year, for the first time, I decided to enter my commercial commissioned work on the competition instead of my more artistic self-commissioned travel and illustrative work.

I am very proud of the images I done for clients these last 2 years and decided to send them on the awards.

  • The Scores:

    60 to 69 - Approaching Professional Standard (Meets professional standards in some areas, but needs work in others.)

    70 to 79 - Professional Standard (Average to very good professional practice, but does not meet AIPP Awards criteria)

    80 to 84 - Silver Award (Exceeds normal professional practice, with high levels of communication, imagination, craft and skill).

    85 to 89 - Silver with Distinction

    90 to 94 - Gold Award

    94 to 100 - Gold with Distinction

It is was not easy to select the images to send.

There are many photos that are great in showing the client's product and great execution of the client's brief but, for an image to receive an award, it needs to show something extra, something special. 

We can only submit 4 images and the ones I selected are specials to me. I think they represent more than a high standard of professional practice regardless of the scores they received on the awards.

I would like to say a huge thank you to all my clients that allow me to show their photos on my website and entering competitions. In special the Australian Botanical Soap company, Kalinowski Jewellery and Forever Sharp Knifes.

Enjoy the images and watch the judging and their comments. It is very interesting when one image is challenged. One of them had an automatic challenge and an enormous score discrepancy. Great comments.
