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

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.

Filling floating bean bag using light stand to hold bean bag

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.
