We Love the Small Jobs

Small jobs usually afford much more creativity on the photographer's part because there is usually no creative director, art department or brand guides to follow. The budget just isn't there. These new entrepreneurs are usually a "one man band" doing all the work to launch a fledgling business. At some point the product needs to be photographed for the web, catalogs, and other advertising. These clients tend to rely on us for design and style choices unlike the more directed projects. These clients have a general idea for how the product should be presented but it falls on the photographer to bring the vision into focus. The job is to shoot the product and design a table stand graphic for use in various upscale salons.

Here the client supplied a photo of
where these displays will be used. 

The client vision was a silver toned image. We shot the product against a silk curtain leaving the folds in view  to give a slightly soft feel to a spartan design.

After a few trial product layouts, here is the final design.

The final display design.

Done in about a day, we had fun playing with the ideas and implementation.
