A Professional Still Life & Product Photographer In Dorset

With complete control over our environment, the studio is the perfect place to achieve perfect shot.

To get the very best from your concepts, choose a product photographer who can work with you on pre production, discussing the brief and checking over the styling and studio requirements. Our close relationships with art directors, stylists and set builders will ensure we are always prepared with the skillsets required.

Our Bournemouth studio has the all the resources needed to see even the most imaginative of your ideas come to life. We have drive in access, a large infinity cove, a fully working kitchen, a huge shooting wall to build room sets off, a large props store, multiple flats and backgrounds and all the grip and lighting you could wish for.

You’ve invested time and budget in your campaign concept. We’ll give it the commitment and attention to detail it deserves, and aligning an AOP accredited product photographer with your concepts beforehand is often what leads to smooth and professional shoot days.

Speak directly to our in-house retouchers, who have years of experience bringing your visions to life. Their understanding of colour, tone and composition is well learnt, and their ability to adapt and enhance the images after shooting only adds to finished result.

With AI and generated backgrounds already complimenting the softwares and processes in our Bournemouth based studio, you’ll get a fully equipped photography studio that’s big enough and flexible enough to meet any brief – and our skilled team will look for creative ways to turn your concept into content you’ll be proud of.

Frequently Asked Questions

The amount of images we shoot varies with every project.

Some of our clients will commission us to make 1 or 2 images in a day, and others expect to get through more than 50. The most important thing to consider is the type of photography you need. If the image is detailed, and needs stylists and intricate lighting, then the difficulty dictates more time is needed. If the imagery is all to be shot in the same set, with very similar or identical lighting set ups, then this efficiency means we generate far more shots. In short, there aren’t levels of service we offer, we only ever try to make excellent images – it is simply that some shoots are complex and others straight forward.

A few projects can be costed per image, but most are charged based on time.

Those charged per image tend to be high quantity photoshoots for repeat clients, and will be based on an economy of scale; i.e the more images they require the lower the unit cost per image. For most projects we charge by time. This can be as little as 1/4 of a day, but typically 1/2 days and full days are quoted. This is simpler for everyone involved and allows for flexibility – we will always be transparent with costs and let you know how long we think your project needs by quoting or estimating the costs/amount of time from your brief.

These are the terms we use for time spent before and after a shoot.

Pre production refers to time allocated to planning a shoot. It can include meetings, sourcing items, booking accommodation or locations and making/creating backgrounds. Smaller projects often don’t need a pre production budget, but larger ones do if they involve the above tasks. Post production is charged on all projects. It is the time we take for editing pictures or footage. We don’t allow our work to be delivered ‘RAW’, or unedited. This cost is always made clear up front and is an integral part of the process to ensure high quality retouched work is supplied.

Yes – lots!

When you approach our industrial estate you’re looking for 16 Alder Hills, it’s the last on the right once you’ve driven up the hill. Enter the estate and look for Double Exposure Photographic. Follow the numbers round clockwise until you see Unit 5. You can park outside our studio, there’s plenty of space for 5 + vehicles.

Video is slightly different to photography, so we just need a little more information.

We’ll typically ask a few more questions if you have a moving image brief. We’re interested in the overall story or promotional narrative behind the sequences of shots you’ve drafted. This pre production planning is a wise idea to help the project run smoothly – we can then discern the shots we need to shoot, and in what order. We’ll ask about resolution, colour space, aspect and crop ratios. It’s helpful to know if it’s above or below the line, whether you need audio and a soundtrack and if there’s subtitles or voiceover. Additionally, to generate really engaging content we often use a slider, gimbals and specialist lighting. This additional equipment is often billed into the project as a separate cost when shooting videos.

It’s fine to be as involved in the shoots as you’d like to be.

Some clients prefer to drop off and go, others prefer to oversee all the fine detail. We get it, and are happy however you’d like to be involved. As an experienced studio we know that sometimes it’s important to sign off the images as we go through a shoot day, and this can happen in the studio or remotely. If you can’t make it to us, we can send images by email and WhatApp so they can be shared internally with your team. We have comfy sofas, coffee, wi-fi and parking; so if you’d like to hang about, you’ll feel right at home!

All standard client amends are included.

After we’ve delivered your project (most likely via WeTransfer download, or a shared Dropbox folder), you may need some images edited or amended. Don’t worry, this is very common and all part of the creative process. We’ll handle all your ‘standard’ amends for free and subject to reasonable requests – it’s all part of the initial costs. If there are requirements we weren’t aware of, or haven’t quoted for (e.g. multiple different file formats, further editing, background AI or stock library composites) we will inform you of the additional studio editing costs and you can make the decision on how to proceed.
