Having our own photo studio allows us to produce content for the websites and social networks of our clients, to take photos of products, do the advertising photography with models for catalogs and websites with almost no restrictions. We have a variety of backgrounds, lighting equipment, all the stuff needed to shoot products of different textures, colors and sizes.
If you think it is unrealistic to take photos without glares, edit them and keep up with deadlines, you simply did not work with us.
What is so special about object photos?
Sometimes you flip through a catalog or scroll down the pages of an online store, and no product catches your eye. Then there are products you want to open in a separate tab or bookmark them. How so? Very often, it’s all about the photo.
That is why photos should be taken by a professional! Because the buyer loves with his eyes.
If it is sport shoes, you should want to run just by looking at the photo. If it is a golden brown eclair, you should feel the gentle lightness of the pastry cream on your tongue. If it is a fresh celery, you should hear a pleasant crunch of biting it.
Photos of clothes, sofas, sporting goods, cosmetics, food, jewelry — it is just a short list of what we can shoot. Challenge us with more!
Any high-quality website has photos in a single corporate style. We know the standards and requirements for photos and adhere to them to make your product look presentable.
Object photography is our specialization, but you can also order art or corporate photos to be taken in our studio or in your office.
Try it once, get your quality photos, and join the team of our regular customers!
Advertising photography with models
People do not buy goods, but the image of owning them. Therefore, the mission of advertising photography is to attract the buyer. A good shot evokes emotions, encourages action, and it sells.
Professional photography is conceptual. That is, it has a general idea, which is subject to the atmosphere of photoshoot, its theme and image of the model. We have a database of professional models, including women, men, children, older people, and plus-size models, so it is not a problem for us to take photos of clothes or accessories of any kind.
For an online store or catalog, it is especially important for the photos of the goods to be in a total look. We have our own studio, where we take high-quality catalog photos using different backgrounds.
For social networks or a website, location (outdoor) shooting may be useful; in this case, the face of the brand ‘comes to life’. In COI, we transport our lighting and photography equipment. We will offer an idea of the shooting, select models and necessary inventory, and find a location — you do not have to be distracted with nuances of advertising photo session, just rely on us!
COI knows how to make advertising photos effective, and we do it a little bit better than possible. Our portfolio will convince you!
While object photography involves a photo with only one product in the frame, art photography aims to create a piece of art around your product.
It makes no sense to take art photos for a unit of goods of an online household appliances store, because the user wants to see a specific product unit. However, when it comes to photos for banners, sliders, billboards or advertising offers, the same appliances better be taken in the interior, with models or additional inventory.
This is exactly the case when the taste of the performer plays an important role. The photographer should not overload the shot with stuff and should emphasize the benefits of the product. He has to create a correct atmosphere of the shot.
Such photos can be taken in the studio or during the outdoor photo shoot. Therefore, on the one hand, COI Marketing & Software has its own photo studio for advertising photography of small products, and on the other hand, we can transport equipment to your office or any location suitable for a photo shoot of your products.
People and places
Art photography creates a fascinating image that encourages purchase. Often people in the shot help to achieve this effect. We have formed a database of models, including women and men of different ages and bodily constitutions, children; we carry out additional castings if necessary, and we approve the concept of art photography with the customer.
A separate issue is location. However, a choice of location is not a problem for us. To photograph the bed, we rented a hotel, and for a furniture photo shoot, we rented an apartment. It’s enough to say that we were shooting sofas in a sand pit! We are very dedicated to our work.
Content with meaning
The fact is that we ourselves enjoy the process of photography. Therefore, we fully support the bold ideas of customers, and simple, at first glance, projects we try to implement so that it looks mind blowing. With this approach, not only the location but also the details that complete it play an important role.
Since we ourselves are often the authors of the photo concept, we think through the whole shot from A to Z, supplementing it with the necessary attributes. Yes, in the studio we have a lot of decorative elements, different backgrounds and textures for art photography. The shot needs to be completed, and COI team knows how to achieve that.
Your product has the right to be in the center of the masterpiece. We will photograph it so that you will want to buy it yourself!
We have two questions for you:
- Why do you think almost any website has pages ‘About us’, ‘Team’?
- If you can read a text about a person and see his or her photo, the stranger becomes a little familiar and begins to inspire confidence, doesn’t he?
If you want to present your team on the website — take care of professional corporate photos! After all, a potential client wants to see that he will cooperate not with some ghost company, but with real people. It will increase his trust in the company and the services it provides.
We can arrange a photo shoot of your employees in our photo studio or at your company or office. Shooting in the studio is a classic option. It passes quickly: the lighting equipment will be set and calibrated before your arrival. We have our own professional room, because studio shots are a common thing for COI photographers.
On the other hand, there is no place like home: taken in your office, corporate photos look casual, and employees do not need to be distracted from work for a long time. It is easy for us, since we have portable equipment.
When do you need an individual business portrait?
- if you have published a book or a training course;
- when advertising your brand;
- if you plan to speak at conferences, business forums, business meetings, etc.;
- if you need a high-paying job (the first thing HR pays attention to in the resume is a photo);
- when promoting your own brand on social media (be sure to publish presentable photos on your pages).
A separate issue is photography of a businessperson or a coach for your own project. The photographer must understand psychology, because a business portrait should convey the character traits that are valued in your profession. If you are the owner of a private school, the business portrait should reflect friendliness and empathy. If you are a doctor, people should see experience and humanity in your photo. If you are a business shark, your photo should represent determination and business acumen.
We will help you choose the style and the way of representation. We know how to take photos that emphasize all the benefits!
‘More real, living photos’ — that’s what we always say when a client asks about the photo content for B2B cooperation, pages in social media, or the website. People want to see real smiles, real faces and real conditions in which their children are taught, an office where they do massage and a medical center where they will be operated at. They are interested in who makes furniture for them, what the factory or the office look like, where they get goods and services. This information inspires confidence in the company and the services it provides.
We specialize in object photography, but not all objects are easy to transport. Do you produce properly sized goods? Maybe, you want to take pictures of sofas? We will take the necessary equipment with us and come to you!
We know how to make a shot look aesthetic. Trust us, any shop can look like a loft. It’s not a problem if the photographer is talented and the agency has all needed equipment. That’s what you’ll find in COI!
Additionally, we can take photos of the company's employees at work. Read all about corporate photos taken by the COI team here.
We take photos of objects usually within the Lviv region, but we are ready for longer journeys if the project is interesting!
Living photos can be beautiful, you'll see!
Food photography is a separate industry that requires special skills and knowledge.
How do you take a picture of chocolate so that it does not melt from the spotlight? What do you do with crunchy biscuits? Why is the chicken white on the market, but looks yummy and yellow on the photos?
Photoshop is not almighty, though. To take professional photos of food and tickle the taste buds, you need to know how to make dumplings look delicious and how to cut the candy in half smoothly. We know how to photograph sweets and dishes for websites, catalogs, and menus so that it makes your mouth water!
People consume with their eyes. We will create photos to make your clients long for more!
