We’ve gone from complete amateurs to mildly OK at photography, and now at least know our macro lens from our soft box and shutter from aperture. Watch photography is a niche of photography that is particularly hard; capturing close details means there is nowhere to hide and everything is on show. So much time and attention has been spent on getting images that make the watches look as realistic as possible, and bring them to life.
There has been a little (lot!) of help from a friend though. It helps when that friend is a professional photographer and is very generous in donating some time. Some shots on the site have been shot by Pete at viewpoint photography, and it may be obvious which ones! Thanks a lot Pete, for not allowing us to have a site with dodgy pics.
If you are interested, the camera that Pete uses on its own cost £35,000+. But the real difference is that he knows what he’s doing totally. (unlike us!) We quickly found with our home setup that the lighting let us down in particular.
We hope you like the photography. Let us know what pics you like
