Product photography visual glossary

You may have noticed a many different terms used to describe different kinds of product photography. Below is a visual glossary describing the differnt looks and styles of photography we can use to create high quality images that will help your products sell.

eCommerce Product Photography

You only get one chance to make a first impression.  Additionally, it has been proven that high-quality product images will convert browsers into buyers.
Your product takes center stage whilst a white or colored background provides a clean contrast required for e-commerce websites.
Above all our advanced camera techniques will make sure your product stands out from your competitors.

White Background

Classic white background product photography is the most popular choice for eCommerce websites and catalogs. Likewise clean, crisp and clear images help potential buyers to view your product with distractions.

Lifestyle Studio

Similar to the simplicity of the white background. With the Lifestyle Studio we create a small set in the studio which needs minimal post-production work. Different backgrounds and textures can be used. This is the most cost effective product shoot.


The reflection product shot has an added reflection. This creates a more luxurious feel to the image. Furthermore this effective style is achieved with extra post-production work in photoshop. Additionally, we can tailor the effect to your tastes.
