PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY

PRO QUALITY FOR PRODUCTS AND LIFESTYLE

Want to know a secret? It’s all about the lighting! Today’s smartphones have amazing cameras that make you feel like a pro photographer. But, try not to let that get to your head. They’re great for selfies at sunset, but not for product photography. We spend hours staging scenes with thousands of watts of white-balanced strobe lighting, controlling highlights and shadows, styling models and props to perfection, and retouching the heck out of the results in Photoshop to end up with stunning photos that make your products look awesome. You just can’t get that with your iPhone. And yes, we know it has a portrait setting now.

When we started our new health food company we knew that the packaging and label design were going to play a huge part in attracting customers to our brand. From start to finish David and Nancy have been great to deal with and we are over the moon with the finished product and can’t wait to see it on the shelves. So impressed with how Deal Design handled the whole process we are now in the final formulation stages of our second product and we will be going straight back to the team at Deal to work their magic once more. For anyone seeking a professional and eye catching design I would not hesitate to recommend Deal Design.
