What you'll do

Are you a small business that wants to improve sales and social media presence?

If you have trouble making your products look Pinterest-ready, then this is the workshop for you!

Join host Jo Hounsome, a specialist product photographer, and learn the tricks of her trade. She works with artists and small businesses to provide high-quality photographs for print, online, publicity and social media, and she can help you create that professional finish to your photography.

This introduction to product photography workshop will have your Instagram grid looking fresh, enticing, and sleek in no time. This session will cover:

  • Basic lighting set-ups that can be done at home
  • Basic background set-ups emphasise your product
  • How to approach layout for product photography
  • How to take quality product photographs on a phone
  • Photography techniques for quality product shots

This workshop is held at Prior Shop in Bristol City Centre, which also has a product photography studio available to hire if you fancy using a studio space for your new-found product photography skills.

This workshop is suitable for phone or camera photography and the techniques covered can be used at home with natural lighting.

Bring your phone or camera with you and a small product (if you wish). There will be time at the end of the workshop to put your new skills to the test!
