Stainless steel product photography - I was recently commissioned to take high quality product shots of some stainless steel valves on site in a factory. I used a combination of a large hand made light tent with open front and reflectors (foamcare) to control reflections and eliminate color cast from room and camera / myself. Outside the tent I used two light sources either side, shot through umbrellas to difuse the light as much as possible. The client was really pleased with the end result and has already booked me for additional work. Contact me via my photography Liverpool site for more details or the blog post about photographing stainless steel products.
Liverpool people - I really enjoy getting up close and taking portraits. Essential for any editorial stories as they add character to any story and something I always try to leave until the end of a shoot. By that stage, if things have gone well, individuals are relaxed and used to me - all helps getting a great shot.
I was lucky enough to be asked to take photos at a really special party on Friday 27th Sept. 2014 at the Baltic Social here in Liverpool.
“Nicky Siano was dancing in Manhattan clubs at 15, and by the age of 17 was resident and co-owner of the hottest club in New York: ‘The Gallery’.

Not only did he inspire such clubs as THE GARAGE & STUDIO 54, but he also launched the careers of Grace Jones, D.C. La Rue, & Loleatta Holloway to name a few. He also famously worked the dj booth at Bianca Jagger’s infamous Studio 54 Birthday Party. It was no coincidence that when Steve Rubelle opened Studio 54 he chose Nicky as one of the two original DJs”
