Your Reflection Studio is not only the leading Inverness commercial, business and industrial photography studio - it is successful Scotland wide and throughout the United Kingdom wide too. As a professional commercial and food photographer business, we help companies, business people and owners, entrepreneurs and the media locally as well as across the country with our simple approach and our fixed price business photography service packages. Much of our work is done from our studio in Easter Drummond - not far from Inverness - and is equally connected with Aberdeen, Glasgow, Perth And Edinburgh by key major roads - which means we can easily work with clients in these locations within just a few hours drive - vital for on-site shoots and when working with food clients who may require us to collect ingredients. Currently the facilities in our commercial photography studio lets us produce a range of business and commercial needed images for product and packaging as-well-as our specialist work for food subject and publishings. Most of our other commercial client work is done 'on-site' on or in our client's premises, thanks to a significant investment in our 'portable photography' studio environment - this means a studio environment is maintained at all times - lighting quality assured.
As you would expect from a professional commercial photographer and studio, we have a wide range of business driven and industrial photographic experience, which we bring to all our clients. Beyond this commercial image knowledge, we offer advice on styling and creation of set-piece and lifestyle arrangements and model work. As a photography studio, we also have a wide and extensive knowledge of marketing and public relations. This experience was gained over 25 years prior to starting the commercial photographer studio and it helps us with both client-side and agency-side commissions, improving our commercial photographic services - commercially driven and sales proposition orientated. We are renowned for being only business to business that is our specialism and our focus. Isn't all photography the same you ask? Well to put it simple - no it's not. We think 'commercial', how to sell your product, service or property and then capture a visual to make this proposition - we're marketing consultants through a camera, commercial through and through. We don't take weddings and the only portraits we take, are commercial, for business and balance sheets. It's simple - we're only business to business or business to owner! If you're in doubt ask for a client list and a portfolio - we'd be delighted to send you one. As for partners - we not only work for website designers, print design communications consultants and media agencies in Inverness - we do this UK and Euro wide - yes, we regularly are asked to do work for European agencies for client companies present in the Highlands or simply to cover issues and subjects that specifically occur here.
Probably our commercial studio's biggest photography growth area and key to the business is food and beverage photography. As a creative studio, we have worked with many food business throughout the Highlands, as well as the Inverness area, including the Royal in Tain, the Loch Ness Clansman, RedPoppy, Glenmoriston Arms, at Cafe 1 and the Garth Hotel to name but a few. But this area of commercial image work doesn't just include menu and restaurant photography, it also includes food product and packaging images, food images for use in advertising, recipe book/card publication, menu use and yes, food blogging. This means we've also work for food producers like Argyll Smokery, Wooleys of Arran, Grierson Organic, Reids of Caithness, Cocoa Mountain, Grants of Speyside and Speyside Specialities - to again name just a few of our food photography clients. As a business specialist studio, which focuses on food photography, we have invested in a wide range of props, cloths and ceramics, back drops and fabrics to bring any food photography work we do to a style you require. We style much of the food photography work ourselves but are happy to recommend any food stylist we have worked with in the past or engage a food stylist you've already employed. As for restaurant photography, we enjoy working with chef directly - working and photographing dishes, which are a selection from the day's menu and finding a great location in the establishment to shoot them - selling their skill and attention to detail in food presentation.
Much of our commercial work in Inverness and the Highlands deals with architecture and property, interior design and sporting estate photography. It often is for the cataloguing of property for balance-sheet or historical value and promotional use by architects, builders, designers or use in tourism (holiday let property photography or hotel property photography) or interior design services for sale. That's why we have worked with ISG Plc in Glasgow and Inverness, Simply Let and House Simple for example, as well as Bidwells and Bell Ingram. We're also registered with Tripadvisor. We have invested in the wide angle and tilt and shift lens technology to help maximise the image's value and potential use. All property images are supported by a lighting scheme from a range of 3000KW studio lamps - not flash off the camera, so all images are light balanced and as an important issue for any studio, colour corrected. We also provide a valuable service to hotel, BNB and guest house owners throughout the Highlands and Inverness area where property images are needed to support their website and promotional use on booking engines. Often as an extension to our commercial property photography - estate and architectural services - we are asked to provide commercial images of the sporting estate (including landscape from our other studio - www.eysightphotography.co.uk). We have developed a more easily transported 'studio-rig' to help us up and down the hills, so we can easily follow the shooting party. We have also an extensive natural history image library which is then accessed to show the wildlife and landscape of the estate. Subsequently our estate client base is not restricted to just Inverness, we photograph estate property all over the Highlands including Sutherland, Grampian and Argyll as well.
We typically photograph over 200 hospitality properties a year! Yes that's a lot of property and interior photography, examples include The Thistle and Clansman in Inverness, Royston Bed & Breakfast again in Inverness, Glenkirk in Drumnadrochit, The Moorings and Torlundy in Fort William, Hilton Bed & Breakfast, An Grianan in Inverness, the Cross, Golfview, Sutherlands and many more - why not ask us for a reference list or look at some of our case studies by clicking here. The fact that we control the light and help all our commercial client owners consider the use of fabrics, food and space to promote their places to stay, means we're referred to throughout the Highlands. We also provide an image archive service to hotel, BNB and guest house owners throughout the Highlands and Inverness area where property images are needed to support their website and promotional use on booking engines - here we liaise with agency, booking companies and designers on our client's behalf to help get the best use and formatting of our images used. We've even provided landscape images again from our landscape studio to clients for wall art. Examples of this can be found here at the Inch.
In the studio here in Inverness we have dedicated space for product photography benches that enable commercial product shoots of a high key style or specialist and highly creative lifestyle formats to be undertaken. That's why clients such as Aromantics in Forres use us for all their products. Not only do we have the lighting arrangements but also the boom and clip systems to arrange product in a still life format to demonstrate angles, key features and any practical uses during the shoot. Should clipping masks be required we have invested in the Adobe Creative Suite extensively plus the image cataloguing software Lightroom, which we have used since it was launched. We also have invested in a range of software plug-ins to manage most image styling requirements. Lightroom also means we can archive manage your commercial images, so you have backup should there ever be a loss at agency or marketing department level. And let's not forget, by product we also mean food product - a substantial amount of the studio's traffic is food driven, food packaging as well as the food product itself. Like with our other investments, the studio has access to cold storage, cooking and styling facilities - as we mentioned above in the food section. So a complete product and pack-shot factory so to speak. Look to our case studies on product photography with Reids of Caithness and Loch Ness Furniture for examples. And if you make valuable products such as jewellery - we have safe and security system here in including recently fitted CCTV - so you will always have peace of mind - no matter where you have sent your product from.
As a commercial studio and freelance photographer we have worked with Platform PR on the Highland Tattoo, Weber Shandwick, AVC media, Consolidated PR on the Commonwealth Games, Somersault, Willoughby PR and not just on commercial photography commissions or themes - a wide range of PR activity. We've been published in nationals as well as local newspapers such as the Inverness Courier and Press & Journal. Clients also include specialist magazines such as Retail Week, Caterer and of course Build-it Magazine. As a studio we also freelance, many of our clients who engage us as a freelance photographer are from London, Edinburgh and Glasgow where they are looking for image support in Inverness from a professional who can demonstrate both consistency of image and approach to brief. Public relations and publicity images, are an extension of our freelance work, we are engaged by many of the agencies in the North of Scotland - a simple brief often accompanied with an action plan and deadlines.
And what about the images supplied? We explain in our section 'About us' our approach to image management, disk shipping and archiving.
