How do product photography sessions work?
There are 3 tiered packages you can choose from in getting your products photographed.
Tier 1 - Basic product shoot, no props
Product is provided by the client, and little to no props or styling is included. We decide on backdrops and lighting style to use for your shoot. In most cases these are the most simple images of your product on a white or other solid color background. There is no pre-planning or style guides involved on this level.
Tier 2 - Photography with styling provided by client
Client provides an exact list of colors or styles they want for backgrounds, provided from a list we have available. If we do not have the backdrop available requested, we can order it (client's expense). All props are purchased by client and provided prior to the shoot - for example, all styling items, florals, greenery, food or any other garnishes. This level includes one pre-planning style email or phone call prior to the shoot.
Tier 3 - Photography with extended pre-planning and styling provided
This is the package that I consider most thorough, and often produces the best results. If you need a little bit more hands on help, somewhat like what an ad agency would provide in terms of style suggestions and even helping to create style guides - then this package is perfect for your needs. We will spend up to 2 hours of preplanning via email or zoom exchanges. If necessary, we may provide a full lay out of a storyboard to match our visions for the images prior to shoot. This is so that I can learn and explain your brand through photographs, and be sure that I get it spot on, preventing any need for a reshoot. I work with prop rental services when needed to help us find the perfect items to garnish your product. We often will take up to 4 hours to shoot the products, approximately 3 hours to edit, and 1 hour to wrap-up the entire shoot (includes photos provided via email link and explanation of what was done for each grouping of images, download of files and license release provided). Additional expenses will be: prop rental, prop purchases, additional hours used beyond the quoted package.
