January 2022 - Happy new year from Pristine Product Photography

Welcome to 2022! Let's hope that 2022 is an improvement on the last year or two.
Here at Pristine Product Photography on the Gold Coast, we're looking forward to shooting a whole bunch of new images for clients new and old. Currently, we are open and shooting as normal and most types of photography are available. Contactless product photography is also available to keep everyone safe.

In 2022, the price for product photography, as well as commercial photoshoots, is mostly the same as last year. There are a couple of tweaks to the pricelist here and there to better represent the time required for photography and studio set-up, but for most studio and product photography, you won't notice any difference.

Similarly, the commercial and product photography services available are mostly the same as last year. The only major difference is that, as well as the Gold Coast, photography is now available to those in northern NSW as the borders have now opened and there are few restrictions whether you want to come to us or we come to you.

Right then, 2022 is here, so let's get on with it!

August 2021 - Jewellery photography

Recently, in the studio on the Gold Coast at Pristine Product Photography, we've been doing absolutely loads of jewellery photography. There's no getting away from it – jewellery photography is hard. Not only does it involve macro photography, but the jewellery is usually shiny and so you can see reflections of the camera (and sometimes, if you're not careful, the photographer!). As well as the shiny gold or silver, there's often a jewel that needs to stand out and shine.

Fortunately, Pristine Product Photography are the experts on the Gold Coasts for jewellery and macro photography. No matter what the size or design of your jewellery, we can shoot it so that your jewellery sparkles!

Jewellery photography is more complex than standard product photography because it involves macro photography and generally requires more post-processing to remove reflections etc. Also, many clients prefer to have a reflection or a shadow to give the jewellery photography a classy edge over their competitors. If you'd like to get your jewellery photographed by the macro photography experts to make your shiny jewels stand out from the crowd, then get in touch with Pristine Product Photography!

May 2021 - Large product photography

Here at Pristine Product Photography, although we're experts at macro photography and shooting the small stuff, we're also the Gold Coast's leading commercial photographers for large products, no matter how big! For large items, it's often impractical to shoot them in the studio or, sometimes, even to move the products very far, so in that case, Pristine Product Photography can come to you and can set up a mobile photography studio in your warehouse or factory. In other cases – for example, when photographing cars – it might be easy to move your product but it may be too big for standard photography in the studio. But that's no problem as Pristine Product Photography partners with a number of commercial spaces and studios on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane where your product will fit with room to spare. So, no matter what the size or type of product, we'll be happy to photograph it!

Here's an example of a fairly large product that Pristine Product Photography photographed recently – a mountain bike car rack. Logistically, it was simpler to shoot in the factory and so we loaded up the car with lights, stands and even a white backdrop to set up a mobile shoot on site. Once we'd set up the studio in the factory, the product photography photoshoot was fairly simple and the results were great!

May 2021 - Photography that makes a splash!

Here's a very pretty picture of a face serum with a big green splash behind it. It's probably no surprise when I tell you that this shot was not photographed with a bottle hanging magically in the air while the liquid splashed behind it. No, this image is a combination of product photography and graphic design to merge the images of the product and the splash together.

If you'd like your product to stand out from the crowd with a bit of extra graphic design pizazz, then get in touch with Pristine Product Photography now!

July 2019 - Bicycle Stand Product Photography

Well, we've had surfboard photography on the blog, so time to add another one of my loves and for some bicycle photography. Actually, this was not product photography for the bike but for the stand, which is a great bit of kit for the serious cyclist from TeeKay Industries on the Gold Coast.

June 2019 - Furniture photography

As well as product photography of small things on a white background, we can shoot big things in a lifestyle photography setting, like this sofa that we shot in the studio recently. To photograph large items like furniture or beds, we sometimes shoot them in the studio, either against a white background or in a lifestyle setting like this, but often we'll shoot them on location so that we get exactly the style of photography to show your products in their best light. If you have large items like furniture to photograph or if you'd prefer a lifestyle photography setting for your products, get in touch with Pristine Product Photography on the Gold Coast and we'll advise you about the best and most cost-efficient way to shoot your products.

March 2019 - Reflective product photography

One thing that most people will struggle with if they try to do their own product photography is with reflective products. Unless you have the right equipment and a great deal of experience, it almost certainly won't be of a professional standard (which is why you should use a professional product photographer!) and it won't reflect well on your company (excuse the pun). But here at Pristine Product Photography Gold Coast, we do have the equipment and the knowhow! Here's a picture of some very shiny beauty products that we recently photographed in the product photography studio. For this image, we photographed the scissors individually and then stitched the photos together in Photoshop and added a reflection too for a more sophisticated product photography image. I like this shot - it looks like the scissors are dancing!

February 2019 - Make-Up Photography

This week in the Pristine Product Photography Studio on the Gold Coast, we've been shooting a lot of make-up. Here's one image showing a very pretty make-up powder in a gold tin with a mirror. Quite often, I add a photo to the product photography blog to show off a particular type of photography or a special kind of image, but in this case, I just happen to think that this picture is very pretty!

January 2019 - Health supplement product photography

Here's a nice colourful product photography image from a shoot this week with Perfect Supplements Australia. This image is a little more sophisticated than a standard product photography shoot as it's not only of a group of products, but also has a fading reflection. A shot like this is good for demonstrating your range or for offering packages of several products at once. The positioning of the products, lighting, and post-production of the images is key for high-quality product photography like this and it really shows off your brand in its best light!

January 2019 - Product photography with added graphic design

For this photoshoot of a laser distance meter, we wanted to highlight some important features and to add some explanatory text. Many clients, particularly those advertising on Amazon, Shopify, etc., like to be able to add this essential info to their product photography images as it instantly tells the potential purchaser all they need to know and will improve the sales of your product. Here at Pristine Product Photography on the Gold Coast, as well as being expert product photographerts, we can add text, highlight features and use graphic design to really make your product stand out from the crowd!
