Catalog vs Creative Photography

We offer both catalog and creative product photography, each of which have different applications, merits and price. Let’s take a look at the differences between these two distinct photography styles.

What’s the difference?

Catalog photography is a less expensive option that can produce sharp, professional and consistent product photos for your catalog or website listings. With creative photography, however, you will get the opportunity to showcase your products in a memorable and experimental manner, setting yourself apart from the competition.

Catalog product photography

Catalog product photography typically involves photographing your product on a crisp and clean white background, taking special care to avoid inconsistent lighting and unwanted shadows. Opting for professional catalog photography is the ideal option if you’re looking for basic yet striking imagery that allows your customers to compare products with ease in your online store’s listings, or to print in a physical copy of your catalog

Professional Catalog product Photography

100% white or transparent If you are in a need for a classic, 100% white product photography for your e-shop or ecommerce listings like Amazon for example, this may be a good option for you.

Solid background and/or shadows One color background with natural shadows around the product is also a very popular option, that will add an additional layer of style to your catalog presentation.

360 product photography

Another great and very popular option in product photography is 360 product photography. We cannot only animate your product in 3D, but we can also export 3D models of your product into sequence of images. Than you can use a penny plot for my Shopify that supports 360 images. Or we can provide you with platform when I would have servers what do you can only take the embedded code and put it on your website.

On risers photography

Alternatively, you can consider this option where we can display your products on simple risers in differing shapes, like cylinders or cubes in a very clean and minimalistic fashion. It allows us to create simple environments with natural shadows and colors. This is a very popular and more affordable option, with much quicker turn-arounds while putting emphasis on your products in a clean and effective presentation.

Creative product photography

Creative product photography is the ideal choice for social media or your website’s banner. This branch of photography involves expert research, experimentation, collaboration and a great deal of creativity. The result for your product is stunning imagery that will effectively captivate your audience’s attention. 

With creative photography, the possibilities are endless, and your vision can be brought to life with a range of technical lighting, styling and rendering processes that will evoke the precise feel you are looking for.
