Cyclewear photography at Capture Factory Brighton

Cyclewear photography at our Brighton HQ

Our head photographer Rory worked on some cyclewear photography recently. Our client wanted the prints and colours in the garments to be used as the background of the images and it worked really well. Take a look at how they turned out here.

Fun colours and cool prints

These colours and prints work really well together when they’re sitting side by side. The images look great on our clients social media platforms and their website. It was all photographed at our Brighton studio by the sea. Many of our shoots are photographed here at the Capture Factory HQ, so if you ever pop in you’ll probably see our photographers in action!

Model shots & invisible mannequin for their online shop

For this shoot our client had already sent the garments in the post so we could photograph their invisible mannequin shots before the model shoot. This is a really popular way a lot of our clients like to work when they book model shoots with us, it’s so that the invisible mannequin images are edited and ready shortly after the model shoot, then they can upload the images at the same time onto their website.

5 reasons why professional photography is important for your business

Why having professional photography is important for your business

Many people don’t realise how important investing in professional photography is for your business. We have many clients who have come to Capture Factory after trying to do it themselves and soon realised it can be a lot harder than you might think to achieve the quality you’re after. Whether it’s the equipment available to you or the knowledge of how to use it, or if it’s down to the styling to fit your vision, a professional photographer will be able to help in these areas. We explore 5 reasons why professional photography is so important for your business:

1. Standing out from the crowd

There’s an abundance of websites and businesses out there, some of which may be offering a service like yours so you’ll really want to stand out from the crowd. What better way to entice people to yours than with visuals. Beautifully striking photography with styling that suits your vision will strengthen your brand and online presence.

2. Getting found on the web

Photography can really help you get found through Google searches. You can optimize your photos on your website so they can be found through the image search results and perform better on search engines.

3. Engaging with your customers

Letting people who’d like to know more about your business and photography is an excellent way to engage with your customers. Photos of your products, behind the scenes, models wearing your clothing or jewellery, location shoots and packshots are all ways to show your customers more about your business. Photos can help you build your brand on social media and be featured on blog posts, all of which help you build a relationship with your customers.

4. Saving you and your business time

Many magazines and brochures be that online or printed require a certain quality of image which professional photography will always match and exceed. It saves you time by hiring a professional photographer because you’re handing the job over to them. While they’re photographing, you can be getting on with other aspects of your business, your photographer will know the specs needed and will always provide sharp and eye catching imagery that are ready to use online or send to publishers.

5. First impressions

It might be tempting to take photos yourself or find alternatives to hiring a photographer, but if your photos are unprofessional and don’t represent your brand this will reflect your business. It can tell your customers other aspects of your business may be unprofessional too. Your photography will be the first thing people see when looking at your website or social media, so make a good first impression!

Capture Factory understand the importance of your brand’s aesthetic and continuity with your photography, so when it comes to working with us we’re more than happy to follow any specific styling and shooting requirements you might have.

Location beach photoshoot for swimwear brand

Location beach photoshoot for a swimwear brand

This location beach photoshoot for a swimwear brand took place on the Sussex coastline. This photoshoot was to capture the swimwear range being worn by two models. The location for this shoot was near Camber Sand where there was the beautiful sandy beach with sand dunes, crisp white beach huts and a holiday campervan which made for some varied photos. The models were chosen by our client from one of the modelling agencies we had recomended and onsite was a hair and make up artist at hand, along with the Capture Factory photography and video team. We were asked to film some behind the scenes action to make into a short film so it was a busy and fun couple of days spent shooting on the beach.

Take a look at some of the video footage from this shoot in our showreel here

Choosing the photos and re-touching

If you book a location photoshoot the way it works is we’ll shoot as many photos as we can in the time, we’ll then send you over a contact sheet with all of the RAW pre-edited images and you can choose which ones you’d like to have re-touched. Re-touching can range from slight tweaks like a skin softener, dust and crease removal to more in depth editing like if your model has a tattoo you’d like removed in each photo.
