Product & Bottle Photography for Winemakers & Brewers



Quality images are becoming more important as buyers habits change - recent figures show that the average attention span is just 8 seconds and people move on; people look at their mobile phones approximately 150 times a day! So compelling images or video are needed to grab the viewers attention.



As a experienced working commercial photographer one of my specialities is bottle photography - whether it's a standard pack shot on a white background or something more creative involving props and a set - give me a call now to discuss your requirements for 2018 and your new vintages.



My rates are reasonable with standard white* background bottle shots starting from just £60.00 per single bottle.

I also offer location photography services from £450.00 for ½ day** including image processing/post-production for up to 4 individual frames - retouching, image enhancement & manipulation are charged extra.

If in doubt, contact me for help or guidance. For clients based within 20 minutes of the studio, collection may be possible.

Preparing bottles for photography

Preparation 
It’s best to label & foil bottles specifically for photography. Labels & collars need to be straight and in the right position; the bottles free from flaws and seams. If bottles have seams, labels need to be applied so the seams are away from the camera angle, usually the front, not always. Remove back labels to give a cleaner more even look to the bottle contents. If you're not sure, speak with the photographer.

It's also worth considering sending multiple bottles or one type to give the photographer options, especially for styled shoots involving liquids in glasses, pours or splashes!


Shipping
When shipping bottles for photography, packing is important - cardboard cases assembled with metal staples can damage bottles & labels. Bubble wrap, foam "Wotsits" or a more sustainable protective packaging such reeded or corrugated paper are essential to ensure your precious bottles arrive in perfect condition for photography.

* If a cut-out & pure white 255/255/255 zero dot background is required please advise.
** Travel time & expenses may be charged depending on location.
