WHO AM I ?

Pictures Of Things is a UK based commercial product photography studio. Hugh Threlfall enjoys composing and lighting an object to gain the maximum beauty from its skin! Scroll down for types of images I do and prices. I love teaching people to do their own product photography as well. Details below.

CUT-OUT PHOTOGRAPHY

Classic way to photograph a product for websites and brochures. The background is completely removed and a pure white background added. See Cut-Out gallery for examples. Questions? email hugh@PicturesOfThings.com

Still-Life PHOTOGRAPHY

Beautifully lit elegant still-life photography on a background of your choice. See Still-Life gallery for examples. Questions? email hugh@PicturesOfThings.com

ABOUT THINGS

The first thing I try to establish is what a client wants. Have you seen a photo that you really like and want to replicate the style? Then we might discuss composition or the type of background to be used in the studio. Are you looking for dramatic angles and lighting or are you after a slick, brightly lit shot? Then, as I progress with the images, I keep in contact with you by sending test emails for approval.

So please feel free to email me a written brief or call to discuss your photographic requirements. Product photography has always been a great joy to me and I want my clients to really enjoy receiving their photographs. Communication is the key to it all. When you see a really good studio image, you know the photographer put all their experience and knowledge into it.

SERVICES & PRICES

WEBSITE PICTURES

I shoot many images for websites, but do let me know if you want them a particular size.  Shot as cut outs or on flat white formica with a beautiful soft shadow or any background you choose.  They are colour balanced and sharpened for size. Send examples you want to emulate. £70 per hour, or set your own budget, not to be exceeded.

CUT-OUT PHOTOGRAPHY

Very High quality Cut-Outs shot on translucent acrylic background for a nice crisp contrasty edge.  Pure white shadowless background is added. Very sharp, colour balanced and retouched images. £70 per hour, or set your own budget, not to be exceeded.

Still-Life Photography

Classic high quality well lit Still-Life Photography on a background of your choice. £70 per hour, or set your own budget, not to be exceeded. Please do look on Pinterest or search for images that you would like to emulate.

LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY

Pictures made to tell a story in a home, office or shop environment. Also I make images on reflective white or black perspex, which gives a light or strong reflection of products, correspondingly. See pictures in galleries above. £70 per hour, or set your own budget, not to be exceeded.

TEACHING YOU

You want to shoot your own images, but need a little help with the lighting and editing. Brilliant idea, so come down to the studio for a starter two hour session. Bring some of your own products with you. Bring your own camera or use mine. It is well worth it and you will learn a great deal! 2 hours = £140 Payable on the day.

PRICING EXAMPLES

To shoot say 7 manageable sized products, against a pure white background with or without a reflection, takes about 2 hours including computer time, so that would total £140. To shoot more complex images to match an example you have seen, then I am totally honest and generous with my time. You can set a maximum price for your peace of mind.
