Radiant Photography‘s owner Ryan Weber has be invited to design a skateboard deck for the LVSK8 III art exhibit.  The show will take place June 19, 2009, from 7-11PM at Henri & Odette, in downtown Vegas.

“I’m extremely honored to be a part of such a cool and unique show,” Weber says.  “After focusing on commercial work for years, I’ve been looking to get reconnected with the fine art side of my photography.  This opportunity will motivate me to set time aside for shooting some very personal work.”

The LVSK8 III show might be the start of a few exhibitions this year for Ryan and Radiant Photography.  There are already talks of participation in a summer show of local artists.

“Fine art is a world I’m unfamiliar with and I will embrace the learning curve.  Business is going well, and I’d love to step into the world of fine art photography and maybe even installations,” Weber says.  “During grad school I realized light is my paint and the camera is just the brush I’m currently using to paint with.  I have some light installation ideas using lasers and such that I’d love to put some time into.  If this year goes well with photography exhibits and I start getting more comfortable with the industry, I might dust off the idea book and tackle a couple exhibition projects.”

For now, the LVSK8 III show is the focus.  As for Radiant’s skate deck, there is talk of hot rods, roller girls, giclee, textures, Mod Pog, resin coatings, and pinstriping.  Come out to the show and see what is unveiled.

After much work, Radiant Photography has launched its new product photography service at Whiteproductphotography.com.  We managed to get the whole project planned and implemented in less than two months and it has been met with great reviews by current Radiant clients.

Through the whiteproductphotography.com website Radiant Photography provides crisp, high-quality product photography on a seamless white background.  These images are perfect for manufacturer catalogs, PR media packets, apparel designers, online retailers, advertising, and many other uses.

What sets our product photography apart from others?

– First, we don’t shoot your product on a desk, then just mask it into a solid white background.  We shoot on handmade sets and use a special blend of paint to ensure a pure white background.  We’ve tested numerous paints and they all have predominantly blue or yellow tints to them.  Our paint has no tinting agents, so there is no color cast, making your product colors vibrant and true.

– We use custom white balance profiles calibrated for our studio lighting.  We recheck our profiles often and recalibrate when needed.  Shooting with automatic or preset white balances does not guarantee your images are color-correct, as different manufacturers can have different color-temperature output from their lighting gear.  To be accurate, one must calibrate the equipment to the lighting.  Additionally, we calibrate our monitors for accurate colors during retouching.

– Since we don’t just mask your product into a white background, you get a real drop shadow under your product.  Having a shadow grounds the product in it’s environment and adds realism and dimension.  Having a floating object in a sea of white looks unrealistic, so we ensure we deliver realistic drop shadows.  99% of the time we achieve this in the lighting, but on that 1% of challenging products we can recreate a realistic shadow digitally.

– Our turn-around times and delivery methods rock.  We think two weeks is too long to wait for your images, that’s why we average a four day turn-around.  We also think that waiting for your images to be delivered on a CD packed with your returned items is lame, so we do online delivery so you get your images pronto.

– We include a non-exclusive, unlimited rights lease with all images.  You get to use the images as you please, indefinitely.  That’s right, you don’t need to renew any licensing down the road.

– We’re not overseas.  We’re based in Las Vegas, Nevada, we speak English, and we’re not going to send your images to China to have knock-offs made.  High profile companies trust us with their prototypes, new products, and proprietary designs.

What can the images be used for?

  • Retail – Point of purchase displays, billboards, print & web advertising
  • Public relations – media packets, new product launches, editorial submissions
  • Manufacturers – Online catalogs, line sheets, swatch cards, print catalogs, print collateral, websites, and packaging
  • Magazines – product reviews, advertorials, article artwork
  • Anything else where you need a clean white background to showcase your product
