Amazon Product Photography

Amazon product photography has been an essential part of our business ever since we started to receive an increasing amount of requests for professional Amazon product photography about five years ago. The Amazon Marketplace is a fantastic platform for new and established businesses to bring their products to market. Especially Amazon US offers sheer gigantic business opportunities, but also Amazon UK and EU markets are easily accessible.

All it takes is the right product at the right time for the right price – and good Amazon product photography! We are fully aware of the Amazon product photography requirements and we’ve had the pleasure of working for many different businesses successfully selling their products on Amazon using our photography.

What’s the difference between amateur and professional photos? It’s the overall sharpness and clarity, brightness and colour intensity, a truthful colour balance, natural looking shadows and reflections, photoshop-clean and blemish-free surfaces, razor-sharp edges and corners, perfect white background and lastly about a tenfold higher image resolution.

Amazon’s requirements

Amazon requires the background of all shots to be digital pure white (RGB 255,255,255). This means each shot needs to be ‘cut out’ in photoshop (also called ‘clipping’). Slight remains of shadows are allowed and help the viewer to get a better three dimensional impression of the product.

Large-scale to macro photography

Whatever the size of your product, chances are high that we can photograph it. From the smallest pieces of jewellery to heavy-duty industrial machines, please get in touch and we’ll explain our technical approach.

Creative Lighting

Especially if your product has glass or reflective elements we’d like to experiment with light to make its material and shape really stand out.

Professional lights

Photography is all about lighting. Professional product photography (especially Amazon product photography) requires a lot of ‘soft’ light. Soft light means light coming for a source relatively large to the subject in shot. We have so-called ‘softboxes’ ranging from shoebox-size all the way up to 190cm in diameter. This allows us to light products of almost any size or shape.

My place or yours?

All of our equipment can be packed or set up within 45min. By default everything is ready to go in our studio but we are just as happy to visit your office or warehouse to shoot your products where they are. This way we’ve shot almost the entire assortment of the Courtauld Shop and Simply Supplements.

Tethered capturing

Our cameras shoot directly into photoshop via a high speed connection without any time-consuming memory card file transfers. Just a second after we’ve taken a shot you can see it in high resolution on a big screen (even remotely via Skype or Google Hangout) to provide your feedback or to sign off the shot – a massive timesaver!

Turn-around time

Depending on how busywe are you will have your pictures within three working days of the product arriving here. On average we need about 3h for the actual shoot and an additional five hours for post-production in Photoshop.

We are more than happy to ship your product back to you and add the shipping costs to my invoice. Otherwise we’ll simply recycle it.

What about props and lifestyle shots?

We are happy to add lifestyle shots to your Amazon product photography package. Lifestyle shots are all about creative improvisation to keep production time and budget under control. Need a breakfast table for your product? No problem. A bubbly bath? Easy! Whatever you need we’ll do my best to find a cost-effective solution.

Do you need a model for your images?

We often model ourselves which wouldn’t cost you anything extra. Alternatively, we are happy to work with any model you provide. We’re also happy to work with pets, however this would also have to be arranged by yourself.

Non-white background product photography

Fancy something more fancy? We have a variety of coloured and even reflective backgrounds to display and highlight your product even more. Even though Amazon only allows white backgrounds, coloured backgrounds can be a great addition for your own website and web shop, social media and print advertising. We are happy to offer you a combined package of white background and coloured background shots.

Future-proof quality

We shoot on one of the highest resolution full-frame cameras on the market, the Sony a7R mk3 which captures photos at an incredible 42 megapixel resolution. This means that even after cropping your image to a square format you’ll end up with at least 5000 x 5000 pixels. Amazon recommends 2000 x 2000px and requires 1000 x 1000px. Even as technology advances you’ll be covered for a long time.

Pre-production brief

A good way of briefing us would be that you simply shoot your products with your phone (left image) from the angles you want, pop these in an email to us with a couple of bullet points and we will recreate your ideas on a professional level here (right image).

What about retouching?

There are cheap photographers out there who simply place a product in a light box, shoot it and send the files straight from the camera to the client (often for less than £20 per image). What distinguishes us from our competitors is the amount of work and the attention we put into details. Almost all of our pictures are composites of multiple exposures merged together in photoshop to archive uncompromising sharpness and detail. Each photo undergoes a lengthy post-production process to remove surface imperfections and dust particles, enhance details and to clean edges and corners. Even though our pictures will mostly be seen on Amazon we treat each one as if it was created for large billboard advertising. Many of our images have been printed in magazines (watches, food, jewellery, real estate, portraits). Especially when photos get printed professional quality really does make a difference.

Add infographics to your product photography

Infographics are a great way to communicate specific features of your product quickly and clearly. Lots of sellers are now adding infographics to their Amazon product photography to stick out of the crowd. We are happy to add text bubbles and detail loupes to your final images. Simply speak to us about the details.
