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.

Maximize Budgets with 360° Spin Sets

Social media managers and marketers are always looking for more content and visual assets.  The 360° spin sets that SKUpics Studios creates can be used in multiple file formats on a variety of platforms.  Essentially, these 360° spin sets provide more bang for your buck!

These rich media viewers allow the customer to control their own experience by manually spinning, stopping and zooming in on your product. Typically, these spin sets are shown through an HTML5 viewer so that they work properly on smartphones and tablets.

SKUpics Studios delivers 36 still images that can be deployed on your website by a multitude of solutions that can host and manage your spin sets.  Some of these solutions act as plugins for your ecommerce website. A few solutions to use 360° spin sets on your website are: Continue reading

Yes We Can!

Yes we can! (No, I’m not referencing Obama’s original campaign slogan).  I’m referring to our expertise in color matching and texture definition when photographing flooring and wallpaper products.

Any customer shopping online will tell you that the photo MUST match the actual color and texture of the textiles they’re purchasing.  Matching color and texture in photography directly results in higher sales and fewer product returns.

Interior design relies on two major, simple concepts in a room: color and texture.  SKUpics Studios uses proprietary lighting techniques to define a surface texture. Your customer will be reaching out to touch their computer screen because the texture appears three dimensional!

SKUpics Studios’ image processing team color matches your product with a Pantone value (or any other color book found in Photoshop). Your floor or wallcovering image is portrayed exactly the same as if a customer was in your store looking at it.  

Do you want to see the SKUpics Studios team in action?  We welcome our clients to be present and involved in photo shoots at our studio!
