Many of these photographers are constantly trying out new techniques and coming up with new ideas for shoots. They have to be creative every single day.
Originally from Japan but now living in New York, Nori has spent the past 10 years pursuing his passion for photography. Nori Seeks to find beauty in all of the objects he shoots.
He has worked for brands like Chanel, McDonalds, and Oral-B
I really love the way he finds alternative uses for the products. Like making this bottle of Chanel Number 5 into honey with ants running all over it. It takes two common images and mixes them into one, causing us to do a double take.
Sam is the photography half of the Kaplans duo. Based in New York they create a range of stills and movies to show off food, drinks, beauty products and other still life products.
Their client list includes; Dr.Pepper, fitbit, and Pantene.
Their style is very bright and colourful, which is perfect for marketing photos. The use of solid bright colours as backgrounds is done very well in this image of donuts and cookies. The pink contrast well with the brown of the cookies and matches the pink of the donuts almost perfectly.
He grew up in Poland but moved to the US when he was 20 to become a still life photographer. 10 years later he is living in New York and pushing the boundaries of product photography.
His clients include Sony, Target, and IBM.
I love how Lucas uses background to create a scene. Like in the image below just adding the sparkly background make us feel like it is time to party.
Based in London this product photographer is a pro at capturing fast motion images, particularly of liquid. This has made him world famous and he has won many awards for his work.
His clients include; Heinz, Gillette, and Nike.
This photo of a strawberry shows off Jonathan’s amazing skill of capturing a split second of action.
Born in Moscow, Zachary now has a studio in New York. His mission is to capture the essence of every product and show its beauty in new ways.
His clients include; L’Oréal, Lancôme, and SkinFix.
I always say simplicity is key and Zachary does it perfectly. I love how the choice of props in this image really help to make the product stand out.
