COEUR D'ALENE & SPOKANE
Great products, but zero quality images?
You're a busy business owner. You probably don't have time to take detailed product shots for your social media platform or website. Let me help!
Product photography is the process of capturing close-up custom photos of what you sell against backdrops or in applicable applications to give your customers the full details all in just a few images.
Custom product images are important!
They give businesses the ability to stand out in online marketing. Instead of using stock images of your product or quick shots of what you sell, you can provide vibrant detailed shots that give your product more depth.
Freelance product photography & videography can enhance the way that you share your product with the world.
Skincare Product Photography: Skincare products, specifically against a clean white or cream background give your customer a crisp look. They want their skin to feel as clean & beautiful as your products look.
Apparel Product Photography: Photographing apparel in styled layouts or on models gives customers an idea of how to style an outfit, as well as how it might fit them. *Apparel product photography is my most requested service.*
Jewelry Product Photography: Getting creative with photographing jewelry is fun, because everything sparkles! Let me help you with your jewelry product photography, you won't regret it!
Food & Drink Photography: Alright truth - I'm a serious foodie. Let's add some spice to your menu with new food & drink photos! My most favorite food & drink photography shots? Coffee!!
PACKAGES & PRICING
Product photography gives you the option of shipping items directly to me or meeting me in person if you're in the Spokane or Coeur d'Alene area. The pricing provided to you will be specific based on your request of background, deadline, image or video, etc.
**Exposure Tip** While you may have stock images of a certain product, having a Product Photographer get custom shots for an item that you may have purchased to sell in your store or online will get you more exposure in your market. Not only will the company who supplies the product potentially share your photos on social media (if you tag them), but you'll stand out from others who are selling the same item.
Request pricing using the link below. This pricing will be based specifically on your business needs, instead of using a base price that includes things that you don't need.
All requests will get a response within 5 hours. I know quote requests SUCK, so I'm here to tell you that whether or not I'm in the office, someone will respond to you with additional questions &/or a quote right away.
PROCESS & TIMELINE
The straight-forward photography process below is designed to make working with me as your Product Photographer as simple as possible so that, if you want, you can focus on other aspects of your business while I do the shots. Of course, I don't call the shots, so this also covers what you need & how I can capture your vision.

I require a *50% deposit to book any photography project. If traveling is involved, a fee of $.50/mile will be added for locations 30+ miles outside of Coeur d'Alene, ID.
