Photography specialisms

Product Photography

Since the dawning of cameras, people have used product photography to showcase their products and services. Do you know what has changed since those early days? Actually, very little. There are just a lot more people doing it these days.

CHS has been around for 50 years, and from the earliest days of the first product we were assigned to market, photography has been with us. Your competition in that time has grown stronger, with brands using social outlets to draw attention to themselves and their products by utilising photos and images.

These days, practically everyone has a camera in their pocket and with the help of filters and post-production software, they are creating some pretty good work to show off their latest and greatest products. This is where we come in. In a world overwhelmed with images, we understand what it takes to create product photos that will stand out.

Our stylists and professional photographers are experts in creating scenarios that will bring your products to life. Through the magic of set builds, all the way to simple studio lighting, we want to learn your story and turn it into professional product photography that speaks your brand's language.

Food Photography

With food photography taking over the world of social media, it has become an imperative part of what we do, and we love it (not because we get to eat the food after…). To us, food photography isn’t just the art of making a roast or ramen look perfect. To us it’s about making people hungry, making people look at a menu, social post or catalogue, and not just want to order, but have to order.

Our stylists and photographers work with food like you would a jigsaw puzzle. Each aspect of a dish or product, even down to the last ‘tea’, is carefully placed in the right position to create a final mouth-watering scene of delectable delights that will make stomachs grumble.

Lifestyle Photography

Buying into a lifestyle has become an important part of every customer's journey. They scour the internet searching for brands that suit their own ethos and lifestyle choices. Consumers are often more swayed by how a brand presents itself than by price.

This means that lifestyle shoots have become one of the most important aspects of the photography world. From the initial creative process of brainstorming scenes and styling, all the way through to shooting, both in-studio, on location and creating the perfect atmosphere for your brand through post-production, we can do it all.

Our past work has seen us journeying to Cornwall for lifestyle portraits, creating kitchen scenes in our studios, and photographing celebrities on location. We want to tell your brand's story through stunning imagery and by creating atmosphere and quality that will make your brand shine brighter than the competition.

Photography for social media

Photography is paramount in expanding your brand and showcasing your language. If you need to up your social media game then you have come to the right place. We work collaboratively to ensure that your message is clear, snappy, and will stop your audience from scrolling by. All of our photos are optimised during the post-production stages, so all you have to worry about (if we aren’t doing it for you too) is adding your copy and your hashtags.

How we create photography which goes Beyond Expectation

Our expert team of stylists, directors and photographers are always ready to create mind-blowing ideas based on your briefs. But how do we go beyond expectation? We are always looking to create better, more efficient work, that surpasses goals and KPIs. We are a team, and we know the importance of putting all of our heads together to produce work that isn’t just professional but is exactly on brand. We find our strength in collaboration and utilise it every day.

Our Photography Studios

Our photo studios are equipped with top of the range lighting, props and cameras and are ready to be crafted into a scene that will become a perfect background for your products. Our stylists, photographers and assistants are experts in set building and we have a plethora of amazing backdrops and scene props that can be altered and adjusted to create an atmosphere that mirrors your brand look and feel.

Why your brand’s Photography is so important

In a world led by visual content, the right images can say a lot about you and your brand. With people spending so much time scrolling through online content each day, brands can easily get lost in the ocean of images. Good photography not only makes you stand out, but it can also tell your brand’s story and create the lifestyle that your target audience wants to buy into. 

We are a Bournemouth-based Photography Agency, however we work with clients across the UK, from London to Manchester and beyond. You can see more of our work on the CHS Studios website. Contact our expert team of photographers today.
