So why is food photography so important to Birmingham, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield, Dudley and West Midlands? Simple, we have some of the best food producers in the UK and incredible restaurants! How could we live without Dudley Black Pudding, Disparate Dan Pies, Dudley pork and sausages and lets not forget West Midland's relationship with the hop and it's finest beers!
So food photography is vital for Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield, Dudley, Solihull and the West Midlands. So why professional food photography? For small businesses, it's a great competition leveler. No matter how large your competition is, when investing in good food photography and a specialist food photographer, creating well thought through compositions and with a strong attention to detail, you can become as strong a food or beverage 'brand' or high street name, as anyone else.
We're talking about food imagery that demonstrates visually, the promise of your products taste, the quality of ingredients and the care of production or process - whether you are a manufacturer or restaurant owner. So you really have to look to a food photographer specialist to do this, not a generalist. Don't forget, a food photographer isn't just there to take the picture and do photography, they are often your stylist as well.
We're a West Midlands based food and drink photography studio working extensively throughout the Midlands, Birmingham, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield, Dudley and London as well. The studio is run by a commercial photographer, with over 33 years marketing expertise as well as commercial photography so we understand propositions, branding as well as image production.
It is our aim when we take photographs for clients to bring your products or dishes to life - show the texture... yes, imagine the taste and enjoy the use of colour. Our clients aren't just in Birmingham, Solihull, Dudley, Sutton Coldfield and the West Midlands though, they are UK wide and range the entire food and drink industry spectrum - small smoke houses and butchers, game suppliers, bakers and dairy producers, as-well-as many of the restaurants.
Many of our clients need photographs or images for their brochures, advertising, POS and packaging and more recently their websites, as they sell increasingly direct to the consumer in a manu-retailer fashion. Have a look at our case study library to see more examples of our studio's work.
Our style? As a photographer and photography studios, we will create images that are set-piece (lifestyle) and inspirational, creating the eating or drinking experience. Our photography will create imagination and confidence with your recipes. We are after all food and drink photographers!
We cater through our current studio facilities for all forms of photography, catering for most food product with storage facilities to keep it fresh and when required, kitchen and cooking options as needed. If you require set piece and life style options no problem. We have a range of lifestyle sets, which can be used to bring you product to life - bespoke or template studio set. Many of our clients send us product if it is possible by courier. If the product you produce is highly perishable and need absolute freshness, then we either collect it ourselves from you or shoot on site.
Yes, and better still we have portable studio units to move to where you need the shot to take place. As a food photographer we bring props and backgrounds that will complement the shoot - hence we have a very big car! Normally a good window space is all we need to shoot your products or menu. If the shoot is an on site shoot event, we will work on the brief first, purchase props and ingredients to support the shoot on the day - making it all fresh for the shoot. We use tube lights only when necessary - not hot lights which cause damage to the dish or the product.
We don't just deal with photography here in the studio, we often work as the sole stylist ourselves or with an alternative skilled professional stylist - it all depends on what the client wants. Our props store is now getting very large to cater for all tastes - contemporary or traditional. Backgrounds range from rustic to polished marble, traditional slate to a wide range of weathered timbers.
We also have a wide selection of cloth backgrounds, which we can use depending on your style choice. Tableware - we have over 2000 pieces, which normally means we can cover most requests. The same for other props of the kitchen, dining place or even specialist areas such as catering, chocolate production and beverage.
As a photographer - we do all forms of photography images. Some of our clients require nothing more than simple styling of the product and then a hi-key white background - it's cut out to fit over designs. This is for packaging and as a photographer, we are concerned about how the product looks in its purest sense. For other clients we do advertising or as we in the studio often call, lifestyle images. These at the extreme of photography artistry and are used in publishing and editorial clients - where the images is more artistic - selling the recipe, not just to the product.
In such cases we take a strong brief from you and then as photographer and stylist we compose a number of executions to sell your products as an experience. Lots of fun and loads of challenges! And then as a photographer we are asked to create promotional images - accents of ingredients, perhaps a little life style application but very much selling the products. A wide range for any photographer to work and we do it.
