BREIF - Lifestyle photography of drinks and accompaniments for use on social media and marketing, to raise the profile of the brand and give seasonal relevance.

Geoff and Mary from Lakeland Artisan got in touch as they were wanting to have professional photography shot for their website and for e-commerce sites such as Amazon. It was important they had good quality images on white that clearly showed the products and packaging. I spent a day and a half with them on site at Staveley, Cumbria in their unit shooting all the products with my mobile studio.

The lifestyle, brand photography was all shot in my studio and garden, I have a large variety of props that are available to my clients free of charge. I was able to produce a whole range of seasonal images that reflect the brand, giving serving suggestions and product information. The project has been a great success, the white background images have made their e-commerce clear and professional. The lifestyle images have raised their social media profile and given them new marketing options.

Mary from Lakeland Artisan Ltd said, "The decision to get professional photography was a long hard process, a lot of money to invest as previously we had done them in-house. From the first contact with Lucy, she really seemed to understand what we wanted. We had white background photography as well as some lifestyle photography. 

We were amazed at the results and they’ve completely changed our focus on how we portray the business. The photos instantly massively improved our website but the bonus was how we can use them in press releases, advertising and even changes the way we do our stands at the shows. Instead of wordy signs, they’ve been replaced by fantastic photos. 

Anyone contemplating professional photography we say go for it, it’s made a great difference to our business."

Think seasonally, nothing better than an image that speaks of the day, if it has been hot and sunny an image featuring a cool refreshing drink is going to appeal just as a cosy candle lit shot will appeal on a cold winters day.

Serving suggestions are always good for food and drink product images, this client had suggestions on their labels of what went well with their product. I try to portray both what is in the product and what it goes well with. Lifestyle brand photography should appeal to a customer, show off your product and sell the idea of how it can be enjoyed.

Of course Christmas is the biggest time of year in retail, make sure you have plenty of imagery that fits to a Christmas theme, these images are invaluable for social media, marketing and product display. This client was heading off to the Christmas markets in Manchester and used the new branding, lifestyle photography to create a lovely backdrop on their market stall.
