On-Location Photoshoots

The SKupics Studios photography team can photograph just about everywhere. Photography gear isn’t perishable, so if packing up our equipment and traveling to a grocer or restaurant is the only solution to capturing images then we’re happy to do it. The limitations in the shipping of perishables is cost-prohibitive when we’re talking about thousands of products.  Really, shipping any product when we’re talking about a large number of products can be cost-prohibitive.

As a result, we travel to you.  We’ve found room to set up our photography equipment in behind-the-scenes stockrooms and kitchens across the country.  We’ve also been involved in shoots during normal operating hours at visitor centers and retail stores.  Whether we’re shooting around stockers or customers, we’ll always get the images you need.
