When it comes to product photography you want an image which will sell a brand or product. With my product photography I have an unconventional approach, I break down each item to be photographed into three categories texture, context and props. Using these three categories allows me to be more creative and express myself in the way I show off a product, your product.
Ben the Spoonman
Ben is pretty much the reason I took the plunge and started product photography. Ben makes wonderful items out of old spoons, forks, sugar tongs etc.
Don’t want to sound all gushy but Ben is one of the nicest most genuine people you are ever likely to meet. I approached Ben with a proposal in March 2018 to photograph his stock to practice what I would hope would be a branching out for Snapper Photography. In return he would have high quality product shots for whatever he wanted to use them for.
I think since March last year I have photographed over 128 of his products, from Spoons turned into key rings to sterling silver forks turned into amazing octopus like rings.
Ben and his fiancee Jill can be found most Saturdays and Sundays at Tynemouth Market. He also has a facebook page which can be accessed by clicking benthespoonman.
