Commercial Photography

A Powerful Tool for Your Business

Commercial photography is a type of photography that is used to promote or sell a product or service. It can be used in a variety of ways, including advertising, marketing, and social media.

What is considered ‘Commercial photography’?

Commercial photography can be used to create a positive connection with the viewer and tell a story about a product or service. It can also be used to capture the best features of a product or service.

There are many different types of commercial photography, including product photography, fashion photography, architectural photography, and lifestyle photography.

Product photography

Product photography focuses on capturing the best features of a product. It should capture all angles of the item, including the labels with all its informational data. Often these photos have a transparent background and are used in digital and print advertising campaigns, in catalogues and on websites.

Food photography

Food photography focuses on making food look delicious and appealing. You will need to book a food stylist to ensure the best results. Food photographs are often used in restaurant menus, cookbooks, and food magazines.

Fashion photography

Fashion photography focuses on capturing the latest trends in fashion. For best results, you will need good models, make-up artists, stylists and a location suitable to represent the brand or according to the marketing strategy. Fashion photographs are often used in magazines, on websites, and in advertising campaigns.

Architectural photography

Architectural photography focuses on capturing the beauty and design of buildings and other structures. Architectural photographs are often used in real estate listings, on the websites of architecture firms, and in magazines.

Lifestyle photography

Lifestyle photography focuses on capturing people in their everyday lives using your brand or product. You will need models, stylists and make-up artists to help you achieve the particular emotion or vibe your client has booked you for. Lifestyle photographs are often used in advertising campaigns, on websites, and in social media posts.
