In this product photography picture, we used hard light to give the image high contrast and angular shadows. We did this using a single strobe light without diffusion. The droplet was “Photoshoped” into the image.

Creativity in product photography should include cool visuals at a great price.

Jules Design is a commercial photo studio specializing in creative cosmetic lifestyle product photography.   We use efficient workflows, creativity, props, models, graphics to produce impactful, cost-effective product photos.

So how do we do it?
We have a studio designed for fast setups. This lets us test a bunch of ideas in quick succession to find out what works and what doesn’t. And since we’ve been doing this for a long time, we know the many techniques to get you the funky looks you’ll need to sell merchandise.

Product Photography with Props Toronto Markham

With a little technical expertise plus props, you can make unique product shots that will bejewel your brand!

We get you working with us…

Another way we keep the cost down is by getting the customer to do the photo and video projects with us. In doing so, we’ve discovered that our customers LOVE to participate in the photoshoot. This was a huge epiphany!

Customers helping out with this on-location product photography studio project

Here, our client is participating in the photo shoot. We supply the gear, models and camera leadership. You provide us with the creation mandate. Participate in the creative process as little or as much as you wish!

In effect, by getting the customers involved in the project, they contribute to the workload and that reduces the project’s costs. Moreover, when the clients are involved in the creative process and the photo session, they are more satisfied with the graphics we make!

Here we nurture creativity
We believe creativity is more of a process than a skill. To do so, we open our minds to infinite and crazy possibilities. When we find a winning idea, we refine it into a practical solution that we can execute with ease.

The creative process includes a willingness to experiment, research, patience and the possibility of making mistakes and collaboration.

Great ideas are almost never created in a vacuum. They are often concepts that are developed and improved over time.

Creative Toronto Product Photography ideas

Simple ideas can make elegant ideas. The arts and craft stores is a great place to find props and ideas to make amazing product photos.

When we develop creative ideas, we often start by engaging the Client’s vision.  Then, we suggest our ideas to enhance their concept.  When the concepts begin to swing back and forth, this is when the magic happens.  Creative collaboration always produces better results.

When you stand on the shoulders of giants, creativity comes naturally.

Isaac Newton in 1675 famously said: “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.” How true this is. When we pull our inspiration from “giants”, our inspirational potential is limitless.

From this notion, the internet offers boundless inspirational concepts.   

Most Product Photos are really boring. 

Toronto's most creatives product photography studio

Creative product photography with props can make your merchandise stand out to produce more sales. Here we pulled the idea from Pinterest. We used glass beads from the dollar store and an offshore vendor to trace out the image to expose a pure white background.

Walkthrough any shopping mall and you will notice that each store has a distinct look; so why are product photos so often so undifferentiated and similar?

Most commercial photos feature a product on stark white. Indeed, this draws the viewer’s attention on the merchandise; however little else is achieved. This is a branding opportunity lost.


Interesting Product Photography is an opportunity for branding!

What if you could give your product shots a distinct feel? What if your product photographs had a distinct personality unique to your brand? Does distinction add value to your offering– it most certainly can.

Most product shots exhibit the merchandise on clean white backgrounds.  These product photos certainly serve a function, but they often do not appeal to the heart.

What happens when you call us to discuss product photography.

Traditional Cosmetic Product Hero Shot

This is a traditional cosmetic “Hero Shot” by Jules Design. The merchandise is on a pure white background and it will serve as the main image for many of your marketing initiatives.

Next, we want to talk about your vision. If it’s undefined, we are happy to make suggestions and discuss ideas to get the creativity going. We may ask about your budget to keep the costs in-line with your needs; however, cost is not our focus until we understand your business objectives.

Once we get an idea of the ideal solution for you, we quote the project.  As we wish to set forth clear expectations regarding the project’s outcomes, we try to anticipate all contingencies to minimize surprises.

After the photoshoot, we will deliver you the files most often within a week.  As we “get” that many of our customers are not tech-savvy, we will provide you with the files in various graphic design ready formats for different marketing uses. They will be delivered in an intuitive manner so you will quickly know how to use them.

We want to deliver you results with ease!

At the core of our service, we want to be easy to work with. We want to give you innovative product photos that help sell more merchandise. We want you to look better than your toughest competitors.
