BASIC

For the budget conscious                          $10.00 Per Image (Ex GST)

Professional studio set up and lighting:

Our studio is specifically designed to photograph small to medium sized products for e-commerce, print and general marketing. We have specialised in jewellery or gift-ware for the past eight years and have the know-how to make your product look it’s best without looking flat and over-processed.

Lighting is tuned to bring out the best in your product and make it pop from the background. At your request, we can shoot against white, gray, black or green backdrops.

 

Sample shots:

To ensure you will be delighted with the completed job, we offer a sample shot for each product batch. We will send through a sample file for verification before proceeding with the job.  This verification step can be omitted for future similar orders.

 

SKU or product code file names:

Sorting and searching through large numbers of image files or simply keeping track of your image assets can be time consuming and frustrating. As experienced e-commerce professionals we recognise that the most efficient time to assign this information to an image is as its source. All that we require is that the SKU, product code or other unique identifier is clearly supplied with each item to be photographed.

 

Basic image editing:

The difference between a snapshot and a professional photograph begins with the set-up and lighting of a photo. However, the way an image is processed is where your product is made to stand out and look its best.

To keep costs as low as possible our basic image editing involves cropping, levels adjustment, colour balancing and appropriate sharpening in a batch process. Each individual image is then quality checked before being converted into your desired file format for delivery.

                                            As Shot Vs Basic Image Editing

 

Please Note: Basic image editing will not result in a consistent and completely white background even when shot on a white backdrop. Reflected colour from the product will generally result in a slightly off-colour background. To avoid this we recommend using a black or other dark backdrop if suitable or choosing our CLASSIC service that includes product clipping and background replacement.

See the examples below for clarification.

 

Files in your required type and size:

All e-commerce or catalogue platforms will have a suggested file size, type, dimensions or other requirements to make your product look its best in their system.  For example, Ebay require a minimum of 500 pixels along the longest side of an image, however we suggest 1600 pixels is best. On some platforms 1600 pixels will result in a file size too large to upload.

To capture the most amount of detail and speed up processing we shoot in RAW file format then convert to your required file type. To upload to e-commerce platforms you will require jpeg or another compressed file format.

Do You require Square or rectangle images, verticle or horizontal, or a specific layout for your product shots?

We will discuss all of these requirements with you before proceeding with you product shoot.

 

Minimum of 10 Images per job:

Because our service is so reasonably priced we require a minimum of 10 Images per job.

Research has shown that the more pictures you have of an item on-line the longer a shopper will spend looking at your product and the higher your rate of conversion (sales) will be.

E-commerce experience has shown us that a minimum of three images of any product is good practice and will result in more sales.

 

Secure download delivery:

To avoid sending large files via email we use the popular cloud based service Dropbox (to check it out click here) to deliver your completed image files. The initial set-up is quick, easy and free. After using few times you may think of many other uses for the service and wonder why you didn't already know about it (unless you did and then you will know what we mean).

When your photos are ready we will send you an invoice, including a few thumbnails of your pictures. Once the invoice is paid we will email a link to access the secure Dropbox folder containing your finished image files for download.

CLASSIC

For E-commerce that shines                      $15.00 Per Image (Ex GST)

 

Our CLASSIC product photography service includes everything that the BASIC service does, and for a small extra fee, will bring your product images to the next level and make them pop.

We have highlighted the differences below.

 

 

 

 

Professional studio set up and lighting:

Our studio is specifically designed to photograph small to medium sized products for e-commerce, print and general marketing. We have specialised in jewellery or gift-ware for the past eight years and have the know-how to make your product look it’s best without looking flat and over-processed.

Lighting is tuned to bring out the best in your product and make it pop from the background. At your request, we can shoot against white, gray, black or green backdrops.

 

Sample shots:

To ensure you will be delighted with the completed job, we offer a sample shot for each product batch. We will send through a sample file for verification before proceeding with the job.

For CLASSIC service clients we will include a sample shot of each product type where the set-up is changed enough to make a difference to the look or layout of the finished image. For instance if some of your product is boxed and some away from packaging we will include a sample of both styles for consideration and verification. We will also be happy to supply a couple of different style images for you to choose from before proceeding with the job.

This verification step can be omitted for future similar orders.

 

SKU or product code file names:

Sorting and searching through large numbers of image files or simply keeping track of your image assets can be time consuming and frustrating. As experienced e-commerce professionals we recognise that the most efficient time to assign this information to an image is as its source. All that we require is that the SKU, product code or other unique identifier is clearly supplied with each item to be photographed.

 

Basic image editing:

The difference between a snapshot and a professional photograph begins with the set-up and lighting of a photo. However, the way an image is processed is where your product is made to stand out and look its best.

To keep costs as low as possible our basic image editing involves cropping, levels adjustment, colour balancing and appropriate sharpening in a batch process. Each individual image is then quality checked before being converted into your desired file format for delivery.

In addition to basic image editing, our CLASSIC service includes advanced image manipulation.  This includes "clipping" - removing an object from its original background and placing it on a pure white or other background. This is a key trick to maintaining a consistent and professional look to your on-line catalogue and making your product pop from the screen and say "LOOK AT ME!".

We will also clean up minor scratches, blemishes and remove any other undesirables from your products to insure that they are looking their absolute best.

 

Logo or watermarked:

Our CLASSIC service includes adding your company logo, a watermark or other overlay to your images as required.

We will need you to supply a suitable file of the logo or other artwork and will confirm placement and opacity before proceeding with the job.

See the examples below for clarification.

 

Files in your required type and size:

All e-commerce or catalogue platforms will have a suggested file size, type, dimensions or other requirements to make your product look its best in their system.  For example, Ebay require a minimum of 500 pixels along the longest side of an image, however we suggest 1600 pixels is best.

Do You require Square or rectangle images, verticle or horizontal, or a specific layout for your product shots?

We will discuss all of these requirements with you before proceeding with you product shoot.

Perhaps you need high resolution images for traditional print media and lower resolution files for your E-store, or you want the option to choose from rectangular and square formats for each product. Many clients like a TIFF master file, large (high res) jpeg, and small (low res) jpeg files so that they can cover most uses.

As long as we are able to process the original RAW files into your required formats we are happy to do so.

We will discuss all of these requirements with you before proceeding with you product shoot.

 

Minimum of 10 Images per job:

Because our service is so reasonably priced we require a minimum of 10 Images per job.

Research has shown that the more pictures you have of an item on-line the longer a shopper will spend looking at your product and the higher your rate of conversion (sales) will be.

E-commerce experience has shown us that a minimum of three images of any product is good practice and will result in more sales.

Our CLASSIC service is still extremely cheap so we do require a minimum of 10 images per job.

 

Volume discounts available:

However for our CLASSIC clients we do offer discounts for bulk jobs. Talk to us if you require more than 100 images in the same batch and we will discuss a deal.

 

Secure download delivery:

To avoid sending large files via email we use the popular cloud based service Dropbox (to check it out click here) to deliver your completed image files. The initial set-up is quick, easy and free.
