So you have a catalogue of product photographs that gives you the confidence to get out there and market your products

“Sophie was very good to deal with. We had a vague idea of what we did and didn't want - to which Sophie was able to take that information and create some beautiful photos. We use them all the time and always get compliments!

Very friendly, very helpful, you're in very capable hands with her .”

Sophie Howie Product and Video Photographer

HI, I'M SOPHIE. I LOVE MAKING THINGS LOOK PRETTY

I get that styling products and taking images is one thing, but styling and photography that looks great, heros your product and stands out is a skill many businesses don’t have.

But you shouldn’t let this get in the way of having attention-grabbing product images. 

With over 5 years of experience with product photography, I can take this task off your plate so you can focus on your business and leave the creative content to me.

HOW WE WORK TOGETHER TO GET SCROLL-STOPPING IMAGES

Eye-Catching | High-Resolution | Affordable

Working with me is fun and simple. It starts with filling out my client form.

Send me your brand guidelines (if you’ve got them), and tell me all about your business, your style and what you love.

I’ve tailored the brief over many years of product photography to help me to understand what you’re looking for and get the creative ideas flowing.

With all this background, I’ll come up with a photography plan for discussion so you make sure you’re getting the photographs you need.

From there, you send me your products, I work my magic, and before you know it, you’re doing your happy dance with your new kick-ass, mind-blowing, sales-boosting shots.

“Sophie’s genuine interest in learning about my product, brand values and ethos impressed me.

Product photography adds value to a product, and as a new business, it was vital that Sophie ‘got’ my brand. The care, enthusiasm and expertise taken with each shot is exceptional and, in a competitive market, gives my products a point of difference.”

Jules Lawrence, Founder ~ Aermeda Soap

CAN I BE AT THE SHOOT AND OTHER QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE

Can I be at the photo shoot with you?

I generally work on shoots over a few days, particularly the larger shoots. Setting up each shot and ensuring I am happy with it can be time-consuming and working from my home studio where there is limited space. Therefore I don't have clients on the shoot with me.

Do my products get returned?

If you would like your products to be returned, please include a return post bag or alternatively, I can book the courier and add the costs to the final invoice. Otherwise, the stock will be stored for 3 months if not collected or returned by this time, it may be gifted or donated.

How do I get started?

Firstly you will fill out a creative brief so we can get a good understanding of your brand and what's required for the shoot. It’s important to put as much detail in your brief as possible to ensure we’re all on the same page!

Will I get a plan before the shoot so I have an idea of what the images will look like?

Absolutely! I use a platform called Milanote to draw up your pre-production, where you can collaborate with me on the details of the shoot. I will outline each shot and how it's going to look, along with a visual reference.

You will have final approval of the plan before the shoot goes ahead.

What are your payment terms?

A 50% deposit and a signed contract are required to lock in your shoot. Final payment is to be made prior to your content being released.

What is your turnaround time?

Turnaround time is 8 - 10 working days from the date of the photo shoot. (Please note that in busy times the turnaround time may be longer, please enquire about time frames if you’re on a deadline). 

Can you do the work urgently?

If urgent work is required with a turnaround of 5 working days or less, a 20% rush fee will be added to the final invoice.

Do you offer refunds?

Due to the nature of the work, no refunds will be issued. This is why your creative brief is SO important and why we work together on the shoot plan.

If there are any issues with your images please make contact within 3 working days. You may request a reshoot given a valid explanation within this timeframe.
