What type of photos are right for your brand?
The type of photos you use for your clothing brand depends on your creative vision and budget. There are 5 types of photos used for clothing photography:
1. Ghost mannqeuin photos
2. Flat lay clothing photos
3. Look book photos - these are technically clean photos where the model is styled and made-up with professional hair and make-up. These photos make the biggest impact in helping sell clothes online and cost the most to create.
4. Detail Photos - there are close-up photos showing the material used to make the garment or highlight a special detail. While you can use a photo from the above 3 and zoom in, a dedicated detail photo is taken from a different angle that captures material details.
5. Streetstyle social media photos- these are similar to lookbook photos, but are more casually taken photos, and are no so technically clean, but they are fun and are great for content marketing.
Brands with high budget usually do a combination of flat lay photos of the clothing collection and on-model lookbook photos or ghost mannequin photos and lookbook photos on live model, then additionally they have on-going social media photo shoots, and incentive programs to encourage customers to take and share beautiful photos with the bought garments. This is the best set-up because the clothing product photos allow for buyers to see the garment on it's own and the lookbook model photos show one way these garments can be styled and how the clothes look when worn..
In terms of cost of product on white clothing photos are cheaper than on model photos. For example with us 100 photos flat lay is $1100, while the cost of 100 photos on live model for 50 products is about $3000 (the cost may vary a little based on your specific model requirements). Additionally, product on white photos are billed by the photo, while on model clothing photos are billed by the look, since the amount of time spent preparing each garment and then styling it on the model is significant.
How quickly will I get the images?
Same day proofs. (previews from which you select which images you want retouched)
