Thirty years of experience is a lot of time. When we think back on all the shoots we have produced, it boggles our minds. My sister with whom I work with, is our photographer. Our photography business has progressed over the many years and so has our knowledge. Knowledge of lighting, and learning the ever changing software programs that now in the digital age we must always acquire the skills and the hardware.
Our newest acquisition is a Hasselblad CFV-50. Simply perfect. Of course it came with new software to learn, but as intuitive as most photography software is, the learning curve was not so painful. The Hasselblad digital back is also live, which helps us greatly when setting up shots, especially with props. Product photography can be a slow process, with the many changes to an image, in terms of lighting and propping. But, of course it depends greatly on what your product is. Live view with our new Hasselblad digital back speeds up the process by not having to click, capture or shoot as many images to get what you are looking for.
Our photography studio is located in New Jersey, near major roadways and mass transit. It’s an easy commute in and out of NYC. If you live in New Jersey and are looking for a photo studio for a product shoot, look in your backyard. Not literally, of course but seriously talent is here in New Jersey.

Working with professional models is usually a fast paced event. Time is money and they normally charge by the hour. There is a fine line though, because rushing a photo-shoot is never a good idea. Ideally, we are well prepared and so are the models hopefully, and we concentrate on quality and design of our space. Space can be outdoors. Shooting on location, using available light, and a fill light from our flash. Bouncing in light, using cards or panels to add in just that touch to make the clothes look their best. All in a natural way.
Apparel product photography in our studio is a well controlled lighting situation. Even with models, the pace moves along and the energy in the room helps keep it going. In our NJ photo-studio we can also utilize the light from our large window, but we always use flash lighting as well.
Whether its accessories, hats, shoes or shirts making the model comfortable is key. The clothes will come across as relaxed as our model is.
Our Studio Productions is all about photography. Product photography for your web site, catalog or print; we can talk, email or, and (actually) meet with you to discuss your advertising photography project.

Professional commercial photography needs, at most times a well thought out plan. Advertising agencies have well-trained art directors and designers that make up a creative team. Usually, before they even walk in our door they have given their shoot day substantial thought. They may actually have a layout, and background colors and foregrounds picked out, and have discussed all this with us beforehand. Other times, they just wing it. Especially, if they have worked with us in the past and are aware of the props and backgrounds we have on hand.
Photographing with manufacturers is different. Often we can use our skills at styling, besides lighting to get the product to shine. I do not mean to actually shine, unless they want it to. Commercial photography ‘aka’ advertising photography is a well thought out process. Being in the photographers head would be interesting, and I know confusing, but not to them. They think in terms of light. Where it is, how much, the quality and direction. How it affects your product. Does it enhance it or not show enough detail.
It is a learning experience if it is your first time at a photography studio, the massive amount of light it can take to light a very simple piece can be amazing to a first timer, be it furniture or a medical sponge.
We love what we do, and are always using our skills to make your products look great!
