It’s in the Bag!

This is just a quick peek at a current product photography shoot I’m doing for a long-time client.  They manufacture, print & distribute super nice bags for the food & coffee industries.  You’ve undoubtedly seen their bag on retail shelves before. 

After years of shooting their products, I’m always challenged to find fresh ways of showcasing the features of their bags.  Like their one-way gassing valves that keep coffee fresh.

For this shoot, we’re doing various bag groupings on a weathered wood background.  Given that they market to the coffee and organic foods market, the earthy style of the background will resonate well with their target buyers.

Not much else to say, really, just wanted to share some recent work.

I’m currently finishing up some images of a very rare MINI Goodwood edition.  Developed in collaboration with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, this car was limited to 1000 units with only 140 cars making it to the US.

The MINI Goodwood is a treat for the senses.  The intoxicating smell of the Rolls-Royce leather, the ever-changing LED ambient interior lighting in the doors and pillars, the wonderful sound system, and the spry turbo and suspension to make you smile.  It was a fantastic car to shoot, as well as drive to and from the location.

Here are some shots I’m working on and more are on their way.  Click on any image for a higher res, more detailed version.

We recently had the pleasure of shooting four groupings of luxury products for a six page spread in Desert Companion Magazine, for their advertising client GGP.  It was an awesome gig with great stylists and art direction.  GGP, which runs three Las Vegas luxury retail venues including Fashion Show Mall and the Shoppes at Palazzo, filmed a behind the scenes video of the shoot.  It includes the luxury products, the photography equipment and some interviews with key players in the shoot, including Radiant Photography owner Ryan Weber.

Some time ago we shot pinup model Sabina Kelley for a national ad campaign for Ty Ku spirits. It took awhile to get the ad into print, but this month it was featured in Surface Magazine. Word has it, the ad will appear in other magazines in the near future as well. We’ll keep you updated on its progress through the print world.

We don’t normally do commercial website design outside of handling our own needs at radiantphotography.com and whiteproductphotography.com. However, we are a sponsor of the Fabulous Sin City Rollergirls, handling all their roller derby photography needs, and we had a cool opportunity come up.

We’ve been maintaining their website for some time now, but it was in desperate need of a redesign. It was difficult to update, html-formatted in FrontPage 2000, and simply lacked modern website features and expandability. After many hours of research on content management systems, we decided to give Joomla a try, and so far we couldn’t be happier. The up-front work is extensive, with all the pitfalls and joys of learning a new system, but once the bones are there, the updates are fairly easy.

Joomla isn’t right for every client. We have no intentions of rebuilding the Radiant or Whiteproductphotography.com sites using Joomla, as it just doesn’t look as custom as what we have now. That’s probably more a shortcoming of our abilities than Joomla’s, but for now things will stay put. However, for realtors, sports teams, nonprofits, financial companies, and other organizations that need scalability, live feeds, and easy to use galleries, Joomla is a perfect match.

The Fabulous Sin City Rollergirls website now features CSS compliant coding, cross-browser uniformity, easier to navigate page structure, expandable photo galleries, a live news feed from Derby Network News with the latest derby news, voting polls to get fans involved, and more. It’s a work in progress, but it’s a nice start.

Our sister website Whiteproductphotography.com secured another round of product photography for 944 Magazine last week.  The images of swim suit sets will be featured in next month’s Las Vegas edition.  The styling and concept was done by 944 staffer Laura Mier who did a great job  of picking out and styling the different swim suit themes.  We even managed to get one in there for you nude tanning bed fans, complete with nipple sunblock.

This month’s issue of 944 features a shot by us as well.  Check out the grouping of kicks we did on seamless white background for their sneaker roundup.  It was quite a challenge to light and retouch with so many different textures, reflective qualities, and one nearly pure white shoe that wanted to disappear into the background.  We also did a summer nail polish roundup, which I’ve attached below.
