When I tell clients I don't do product photography what I mean to say is I don’t shoot heavily stylized product photography. The kind of shoots that take an entire day setting up lights to shoot a single object. I respect photographers who have the patience for that, it's just not for me. Having said that, I do shoot products in their working environment, organic images of tools or food in the real world. What I lack in patience for an all day single image shoot, I make up with what I hope is a good eye for context, light and detail. Images here below are from a shoot last week for Stanley Tools photographing their tools at work on $15 million engines off of Boeing 737s.
I don't shoot product photography ... kind of
