Unlock your personali-tea journal
Inspired by the art of tasseography, divination or fortune-telling through the reading of patterns in tea leaves, this journal encourages you to pour a cup and unlock your personal-tea.
I’ve found that flatlay photographs prove to be very appealing and gain great traction on platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. They are a versatile piece of evergreen content, meaning that you can use them time and again on your blog or website, share them across your social media platforms, even use them as mock up photos for your latest designs before they even get produced as physical items.
If you are a maker, designer, author or creative in any discipline, and find that you just don’t have the time to source props, set up a shoot, work to edit the images and do this multiple times so that you have a stock source of personalised images to share with your audience, then please consider my remote product photography service.
Sewing themed flatlay
Vintage sewing paraphernalia meets modern rose gold objects in this soft, cosy flatlay photograph.
I want to make sure you are totally happy with the shoot and every aspect of the layout as with social media the content has to be authentic to you and your work.
We’ll start off with a quick chat via email about your target audience and the direction in which you want to have your product styled. I can help you source your props, select the best backgrounds to make your product stand out, and even create a Pinterest board so that we can really hone in on the right feel for your shoot. I offer a remote photo shoot service, so you simply post your items and preferred props (if you wish to source your own) directly to me.
Flatlay for a blog image
Sewing themed flatlay edited for blog purposes and promotion on Pinterest.
Once the shoot is set up I will send you a low resolution, watermarked image for approval. When everything is finalised I’ll then send the resulting images to you, ready for use on your social media accounts, your website, your marketplace, simply wherever you please!
Flatlay for journal cover mock up
My prices start from £300 for a full day but to get a tailored quote for your photoshoot please get in touch and tell me as much as you can about what you do and what you’d like from a product photography shoot.
I look forward to working with you to create a series of beautiful and captivating flatlay photographs for your business!
