Developing Fibre Naturelle photography
An old friend of mine contacted me about helping him to develop his companies photographic style and marketing in general. The company is called Fibre Naturelle who wholesale exciting textiles for interior designer's worldwide. They regularly have new product ranges which require effective marketing images.
Ideally these marketing images would be taken on locations with the fabrics being shown being used. The challenge of this project is to find new & interesting ways to photograph their products within budget.This is an ongoing relationship and the style will be developed as their marketing develops further.
Cost effective product thumbnails
Part of the Fibre Naturelle photography regular need is for thumbnail images of their new fabrics. We have developed a way of carrying out this work in a cost effective manner. The images are shot, processed and supplied to them in the size & formats needed for adding directly to their website. When shooting these I concentrate on trying to capture the fabrics texture and qualities in a fast way.
New website development
I have also helped them to develop a new website working alongside their team to construct the site which has all the capabilities they required. The site was to include a lot of data, I integrated a way of being able to add products directly to the site via a spreadsheet import.
Local retailer map
Using an online shopping cart we have given both trade (zero cost) and retail (negligible payment via Paypal) customers the ability to order samples directly from the site for any of their 1000+ fabrics.
Another requirement was for a map for customers to find their local retailers. Again we managed to use spreadsheets to add the hundreds of shops with locations and contact details.
