As an intro to the tutorial this is what Margeret from BCTF had to say... "At BCTF, we know just how important good images are. In fact we strongly believe they are the single most important selling tool you have.

We know some of you can't afford professional images, especially those of you just starting up, so below is a link to a short tutorial by photographer Richard Jackson on how to achieve the best possible shots on a limited budget."

Who doesn't love a Bassett Hound?

It's always nice to receive items from Jan and Jill from @perkinsandmorley :-) here's a studio image of one of their coaster sets #woodland #woodlandanimals #rustic #coasters #gifts #deer #blackbird #foxes #hedgehog # #wood #smallbusiness #designermaker #painting #illustration #propfinding #props #creativebiz #animalgifts
An overhead shot or flat-lay produced for @sixelevencreations with a few stationery props thrown into the mix. I always seem to purchasing more and more stationery these days for the studio props stash #greetingcardsdesigner #greetingscards #design #typography #colour #stationery #pencils #pencilsharpener #smallbusiness #studiophotography #productphotography #flatlay
I photograph items, particularly greetings cards with reflective finishes on a regular basis. Finishes such as foil and in this case a gold badge can be brought out with the use of studio lighting. For this image Jen had asked for a simple setup and the background and surface is simply a white sweep of paper. Changing the distance and intensity of the lights creates shadow on the background making it grey.

A pleasure to work.with Melanie from @harris.and.hall photographing her ranges of medieval inspired, patterned homewares. Good luck to Mel at the forthcoming #topdrawer,  her pattern shown here in the background too. #pattern #surfacepatterndesign #medieval #designermaker #interiors #homewares #cosmetics #gifts #palmplant #washbag #makeupbag #productphotography
I tend to have a ready supply of treats in the studio in case I have a visit from our family dog Heidi :-) Being a dog lover I always enjoy photographing clients dog related products and artwork including these products from Jo Scott, #dogsofinstagram #treats #greetingscards #pooch #artwork #gifts #camera #props #canine #dogsonthebeach #walkies #productphotography #smallcreativebusiness #dogtoys #dogtreat

Sometimes keeping it simple really is best, minimal props and setting go well with this serene and calm artwork by Aberdeen based Karen Hadjitofi of New Leaf Cards. I have lots of seaside props in stock collected on nearby Scarborough beaches #greetingscards #artist #watercolour #designermaker #productphotography #studiophotography #beach #seaside #bythesea #yorkshire #organic #rustic
White background photography available for most products. Price list available, just ask...Better than a cutout, as they appear more natural with a subtle shadow at the base of the product. Better than using a light cube, as larger objects can be shot, objects can be hung and photographed from more varied angles.  Useful for either press use or on your own websites, particularly fashion, giftware and other sites. #designer-makers #crafts #textiles #engraving #wood #homewares #ceramics #surfacepatterndesign #illustration #fashion #websitedesign #ecommerce #gifts #giftware #homedecor #cushions #aprons #cosmetics #mugs

A greetings card photographed a little while back for local boutique All About the Day.
