Well the weather has been so wintry that to cheer up this site, I am adding a picture of some daffodils in a mug designed by Lauren Nickless, whose lovely Brighton and London themed products can be found on Etsy, at LaurensFirstArtShop .

Solid ebony wood sculpture by Abi Nafisi. A beautifully crafted and interesting piece of art.

The fibre artist, Jose Heroys came to my studio with her products this week. What beautiful birds she makes.

Since it's Christmas, I always photograph some of what the elves have put up in the house.


Cosmetics products are often promoting hydration of the skin. Water illustrates the point!

This new product arrived at the studio yesterday. I did a few shots for social media etc. #generationskincareuk #vitamincserum #vitaminc #stilllife #studiophotography #cosmetics #skincare #hyaluronicacid #aloevera #orange #citrusfruit #sussexphotographer

I shot a series of glass bongs recently. Not for the UK market of course but for Canada and some US states.

Occasionally people ask me to add props to shots. You can purchase/hire anything you think is relevant and bring it to the shoot. Alternatively I very happy to source specific props, but I do charge for my time.

I am absolutely delighted with the photographs Hugh took for magazine articles and for my website. He was very helpful, charming and a delight to work with, he quickly understood my requirements, added enormous value and produced the most amazing shots of my products. The quality of the photos has completely transformed the presentation of my website. His studio is impressive, beautifully lit and fantastically equipped to produce stunning results. I cannot rate him highly enough.

Amazing! We needed some product shots for our Amazon listing, Hugh understood our company vision and this was portrayed perfectly in the amazing photos we received! He understood perfectly what we needed and the work was of a high quality and standard. The whole process was handled quickly & efficiently, we are so pleased! Very professional and caring service, the only problem we have is choosing which photos to use as there are so many great shots! We will defo be back for our next product!

Hugh is fantastic! Hugh has photographed everything for my website; catalogues and all my promotional work and I cannot rate him highly enough. He is charming, professional, prompt and always produces the highest quality work, that reflects the fact that he is one of print journalism's most highly sort after photographers. For me, it has been perfect that Hugh now undertakes commissions outside of the London studios area, meaning that I can drop products or that he comes to me. His pricing policy and his ability to stay remarkably calm under any pressure has meant that I will never go anywhere else.

Studio Still life images

I am a still life photographer and can copy any style.
Backgrounds can be the most important part of a shot involving products. Do think about the background and what that may be, especially when looking at images you wish to emulate.
I understand how plastics, metal, rubber, leather, fabrics and glass all have their unique properties of reflection, translucency and textures. It is using that knowledge to light everything individually, that brings out the best in a product picture. Composition and lighting are absolutely key to good quality product images, that will definitely help to sell your items. Please send me an email with phone snaps to help me understand what you have and I will suggest the best way to portray them.
