For the most part industrial photography is not very glamorous, but, at the same time it can be artistic. The way we see it is how architectural photography is so inspiring, with the sharp angles and contrast against itself or the sky, industrial products can also have that feel.
Photography of industrial products is interesting and valuable to us as photographers. A few reasons for that, the first being lighting techniques. As professional product photographers know shooting a black object against a white background is always a lighting challenge. Not just the exposure, but getting details of the product you are photographing. Not to overexpose, or you will lose detail and blow it out, or underexpose which hides details. This is where using a light meter is invaluable. Whether is’s location photography or in our studio for catalog online/web or print, we can work together to make some pretty awesome images for your marketing projects.
So three cheers for industrial products, and the people and places they are made!

As a commercial photography studio we get asked to photograph all kinds of things. We photograph things like: Jewelry, tabletop place settings, packaging, stuffed animals, furniture blah, blah. Yes, many different kinds of ‘things’ otherwise known to us as, products. Products photographed for catalogs, websites and of course print.
Product photography incorporates studio pharmaceutical to on location photography of again all kinds of products. Can we specialize? Sure, but honestly, it’s a rare bird now a days. With in ‘house photography’ in so many corporations now, and advertising agencies we didn’t want to close the doors to other opportunities for us.
Once upon a time, we photographed mostly only food. Cooked and uncooked food photography, and raw ingredients, but then when we were asked to photograph tableware, it was a natural transition. Likewise, rugs to furniture. Or both for some customers in one shot. Lifestyle photography is very important especially now with online shopping. Giving the customer a sense of what your product will look like on their table at home, or on them.
