Since 2014, I’ve offered a remote product photography service to accommodate the needs of independent artists and makers.
Instead of travelling to attend a photo shoot, simply send me your products. I’ll create the product shots you need while you carry on running your business - saving you time and money. The remote product photography service is convenient, flexible and means we’re not limited by distance - I’ve created images for clients all over the world from my studio in Derbyshire. You can trust me to take the very best care with your products and I’ll return them to you safely and securely after the shoot.
I understand how much you put into your products, so with careful, considered styling I’ll make sure you get the most from your photographs. The result; beautiful, top quality images you’ll be excited to use across your marketing - from social and print media to e-commerce and catalogues.
Take a look at some examples of my work here.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Before the photoshoot we’ll discuss your requirements and create a mood board. We’ll cover all the details so that I know exactly what kind of product shots you’re after and you can be confident you’ll get the results you want.
I’ll help source the relevant props and backgrounds, then all you have to do is simply package up your products and send them to my studio ready for me to photograph. Parcels can be sent via Royal Mail or a courier of your choice.
Photography, styling and editing are all included so you can sit back and relax (or you know, do one of the other hundred tasks you have to do as a small business). Once the photos are ready you’ll receive them via Dropbox, and I’ll arrange posting your products back to you.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
My rates start at £350 for a full day, and £195 for a half day.
Shooting, styling and editing is included.
To get a specific quote for your photoshoot please get in touch
and tell me about what you're after.
I was a little unsure how the remote service would work as we would never meet and be able to discuss the shoot, but this apprehension did not last long. Holly communicated well with me from start to finish, I used Pinterest to highlight the styling I liked and then as I had chosen Holly as I loved her general style I left it in her capable hands. Receiving the images was like Christmas day! They were everything I had hoped for and more.
HOW MANY PRODUCTS CAN I SEND?
The amount varies depending on the products, styling, and your individual requirements. I always try to cover as much as possible in the time booked so that you receive plenty of beautiful new images to use. When sending an enquiry, please include as much information as possible and I will provide you with a more accurate estimate of the time required.
WILL I NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT?
Yes, a small deposit is required upon booking to secure your photo shoot date.
HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR A PHOTOSHOOT?
I've put together some handy tips for you right here. In the run up to the photo shoot we'll keep in touch to discuss plans and we can set up a joint Pinterest board to collate ideas.
DO YOU HAVE A WAITING LIST?
I tend to get booked up two to three months in advance. I do occasionally have dates become available earlier, but I can't guarantee it, however there's no harm in asking! If you’d like to sign up to my waiting list to be notified of available dates, you can here.
CAN YOU HELP WITH STYLING?
Yes - I provide both photography and styling when it comes to your photoshoot. We’ll discuss your preferences ahead of your photo shoot so that I can get a clear idea of the type of styling you like. You can take a look at my portfolio here, and if you're after some styling tips, check out this guide.
DO I NEED TO PROVIDE PROPS AND/OR BACKGROUNDS?
I have a variety of props and backgrounds at the studio, but I always encourage my clients to take a look around their homes and studios to see if they have any items that may work. It's a great way of adding touches of your personality and style into your images. If you need specific props sourcing, I can help you with this - just ask.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE THE IMAGES?
I use Dropbox and/or WeTransfer to send over your images - you'll receive them as high res jpegs ready to use where you please. I can also provide optimised images for various e-commerce and marketplace platforms such as Shopify, Etsy and Not On The High Street.
