I love to photograph products. Each product presents a unique challenge with its own special features and characteristics.

Reflective and transparent products

Among the product’s characteristics that are considered difficult to photograph are transparency and reflections. Transparent products when not photographed well can simply disappear or not show their shape and volume. Reflective products need to reflect something that is not the photographer’s face or the camera lens.

A few weeks ago, I received a range of trophies, medals and plaques to photograph for a new website. These products are very reflective in some areas and transparent in others. I was asked to create some lifestyle images and group photos to complement the individual product’s images.

These trophies, plaques and awards are given to ballroom dancers (athletes) after they successfully complete specific dancing routines and years of practice. The National DanceSport Examinations scheme is the body responsible for the definition of these tests. There is a colour code that is similar to a Karate belt system.

I have placed a few of these images here.

    We went to Zoom Studio in April this year to take a headshot for job applications. Had a great experience - Jose really took the time to understand what we needed … read more from the photo, and spent a lot of time providing advice about how to pose and look the part of the job for which I am applying. He took a genuine interest in it and treated this as more than simply a job, providing lots of advice to help make the photo perfect. The photo looks absolutely fantastic. He provided a high resolution copy and a lower resolution one for uploading to websites etc. He also spent a lot of time touching up the photo and removing any unsightly spots. Very happy with the experience and the photo. All of this at a very reasonable price - we will certainly be back the next time we need a photo!
