Styled shots are great for Instagram, Facebook and other social media content along with web content and print media. It is useful to build up a library of styled product images as you will use them frequently.
‘Styled’ implies images made using props alongside your product. These props could include raw ingredients or other objects designed to create a visual story. This kind of shot will incur an extra ‘styling’ fee. This can range in cost from $20 – $80 per image, depending on complexity. Please check our Pricing Guide for more information.
All styled images are taken in the studio and clients are expected to provide all the props they would like to use in the images.
An outline of how they are to be styled can be stated in the photography brief or you can simply leave this up to the photographer.
When thinking about your styled shots, it can be helpful to research other shots you like and even create a mood board. A mood board is basically a collection of different images intended to evoke a particular style or concept.
