Navy Blue Baking Co. Food Photography | Canton, Michigan

Navy Blue Baking Co. came to me wanting quality food photography of their vegan baked items. We photographed cookies, cheesecake bites, brownie bites, mini muffins, and granola at our home studio in Canton, Michigan. The brownie bite shot was positioned to allow text on the right side of the image. The graphic design using the images is a great thing to think about in planning your shot list.

Arco – Commercial Photography – Romulus, MI

We stopped by this large industrial building in Romulus for a shoot. Arco built this warehouse, and it’s currently used to store food for grocery stores. It was quite chilly in there! We were going to shoot aerial shots of the building, as well, but because of its proximity to the airport, we weren’t able to fly our drone to take photos legally. If you’re ever interested in aerial photography know that FAA regulations may prohibit it. Some areas are not safe spaces for drones to fly. Now, let’s check out this warehouse!

This warehouse is massive!

Spark Headphones – Glow vs. Non-Glow – Product Photography

We worked with Spark Headphones to photograph their Smart Glow Headphones in non-glow mode. Although the selling feature of this product is the glowing, it’s important to have photos of the product when it’s not on so customers know what it looks like. If you have a product that changes from it’s original form, it’s beneficial to have photos of your product in all of it’s forms. This allows the customer to know what to expect when purchasing the product, and can even help decide whether they order or not.

Union Partners – Event Photography – Comerica Park Picnic – Detroit, Michigan

We joined Union Partners at Comerica Park for the Tigers’ last home game of the season to capture their employee picnic. It was a blast shooting this event! Union Partners is an investment company that creates relationships with its partners who work in the metals and logistics industry. This event brought together their partners from the different companies for a day dedicated just to them – an employee celebration! Employees brought their families, there was a buffet of yummy food, face painting, and they enjoyed watching some baseball. It was a great time for everyone! Here are some highlights from the day.

They had hats and other goodies made with company logos.
