An Extremely Important Blog about Pointless Blog

We reckon we’re pretty cool at Photography Firm (do cool people still use the term “cool”?….). We’ve shot for some pretty on-point clients like Virgin, Microsoft and Interrail.

Shooting 360 Degree Spins at a Macro Level for Timestrip

We were recently tasked with shooting some 360 degree spin product photography. It takes time and care, but the results speak for themselves if you get the science right.

How To Get Your Whites ” Amazon ” White

This is an area we’ve touched on before, but it’s continuously relevant since the conventions of the ever-more-popular e-commerce realm practically demand that if you can sell it, first you have to pose it, shoot it and cut it out. Whilst social media platforms such as Instagram are awash with flat lay and styled product photography […]
