Product photography 'taster' session - JULY
Product photography 'taster' session - JULY
Deadline for booking: 30th June 2016
The 'Taster' photography session
Whether you'd like to try out my photography service before booking a full day, or just need a few lovely styled images of your work for promotion, why not try my 'taster' photography session? I will shoot 3 of your products in a 1 hour time slot and supply you with 3-10 professional quality photographs with lovely lighting and styling to suit your product. You can use these images to boost your brand power, kick start your social media promotion, make a beautiful banner or use them in your webshop/market place listings. I love working with small brands and indie designer-makers and you can check out what I've shot before here.
I plan to shoot in the in the week commencing 11th July and will source a bunch of super lovely props and backgrounds to use on the day. All products must be posted and arrive at my studio before the 7th July as I will only have the props for a limited time.

Victoria from Dizzy Miss James
How will this benefit me?
If you run an online business, great images is the key to showing of your fabulous product. It describes to your customer what they are investing in, how it functions and the look and feel of the product. Well styled and beautifully lit photos are the key to getting featured on blogs, in the press and get into markets and fairs. They also entice people to follow you on social media, giving your marketing potential a kickstart. I am offering this service as a super affordable way to have a few key beautiful images of your products.
Sound great! How do I book?
Great! Click the 'Book Now' button below and you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire about your products.
How will it work?
After booking and filling out the questionnaire, you will post your items to me. Prior to the shoot I will source an array of beautiful backdrops including some rustic wood boards and coloured paper backgrounds. You can see can see some backgrounds I have here, but I will also be hiring a few more to add variety. I will style, shoot and process the files and email you the pictures in high resolution jpegs and web ready jpegs. I'll be posting all the images on my blog and on social media so everyone can see your lovely products!
Help! I don't know what kind of background I want my products shot on!
Working out how to brand your products can be hard, especially when starting out. If you like, you can send me two products (instead of three) and I will shoot it on 2 different backgrounds and in different styles and you can see which look and feel is right for your target audience and branding. This is a really popular option!
Can I send you some props to use in my images?
Yes! I encourage people to send a couple of props or tools you use to make the items. By sending your own props, the images will be more unique to your brand.
How many images can I expect?
I will give to you approx 6 (total, not per product) professional quality photographs with lovely lighting and styling to suit your product. I opt for quality over quantity and want to take my time to get them images perfect.
How will you return my products back to me?
I will send all items back via Royal Mail's 2nd class signed for delivery for £5. Please include a printed return address sticker in the package you send.
If you're item is larger than a small parcel or weighs more than 2kg, please choose the courier option at the checkout.
Will you put the images online or on social media?
I'd love to show off all your amazing products so will have a post on my blog and will share final images and behind the scenes shots of the shoot on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter. You are free to opt out of this of course.
Am I expected to book a full day shoot afterwards?
I hope this will give you an idea of what photography service I offer, but there is no obligation to book me for a full day shoot. I hope you will like what you receive and you are welcome to use it how you wish - shop listings, social media or even a web banner for your Etsy shop if it suits.
How will I receive the files?
I will email you over high resolution jpegs and web ready jpegs
I would like to use a specific backdrop and props - can you source these for me?
As this is a shot taster session I will be using a pre-selected range of backdrops and props. I will have coloured paper backdrops, light wood backdrops such as a painted white panel board and plywood, and a dark wood backdrop. You are welcome to send over a few props and I will do my best to accommodate suggestions if feasible.
I'd like to send some prints - do I need to send my own frames?
Yes, please send the frames as I don't have any in the studio.
Can you shoot on a model?
Not on this occasion, but please express your interest if you'd like this - if there are enough people I can arrange a team!
Where do I post the products to?
Please post your products via recorded delivery to:
Diana Stainton, Unit 1.5 Cell Studios, Grosvenor Way, Clapton, E5 9NE
If you have any questions - please tweet me @dianastainton
