Lifestyle, Food & Product Photography in Manchester
Your website isn’t complete without stunning imagery, and at Pixel Kicks we’re here to help
Our Manchester based photographers work with you to ensure that we create unique and eye-catching images and showcase everything that makes your business special. Bespoke, from commission to completion, our shoots enable you to obtain the exact imagery your brand requires. We produce a wide range of photographs from traditional headshots to immersive real life observations, products and everything in-between.
Portraiture is one of the oldest forms of photography, and are still some of the most important images for a business to display on all of their channels. The “headshot” has become more and more prevalent thanks to the advent of social media, networking sites and online publications. Our team of photographers can provide you with a set of images for each person in a style that best shows off an individual’s personality and spirit.
We believe that a portrait is a still glimpse into who someone really is, and so we take the time to get to know each individual and shoot them in their most relaxed and natural state. This allows us to produce stunning images that can be used across all platforms and suit a range of formal and informal settings.
Product Photography from a Manchester Agency
If your business exists to sell a product then it is vital that you show it off as best as possible. Our team have the facilities to take crisp and clear cut isolated photos suitable for use on retail sites like Amazon, as well as eye-catching images of products in more practical scenarios that will help the customer better visualise the product and lead them to make a purchase.
We have a range of in-house settings with which to shoot your products, but also have portable facilities enabling us to travel to you and capture the products on site for your convenience. Our team has a wealth of experience in photographing products and human models in the same space thanks to our work with various audiology clients.
Real Life Photography
With the growing transparency between brands and their customers the importance of showcasing what makes you special has never been more important, and we believe that the best way to achieve this is with immersive, real life imagery. Whether it’s the street your business calls home, your employees hard at work or a coffee and cake morning for charity, it’s important that your customers see the human side of your business.
Our creative team take the time to get to know their subjects, building a rapport and making themselves a non-intrusive addition to the workplace. This allows them to capture people’s real emotions and spirit, showcasing what truly makes your business special in images that are perfect for both websites and social media.book a shoot
Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I pay for bespoke photography?
High quality original images are the key to any visual campaigns success, whether it be the face of your new website a new social media campaign.
Commissioning your own bespoke imagery means that you can tweak the photos to perfectly fit your vision, and ensure that you never have the same images as any other brand or business.
Bespoke photography is the defining factor in getting the true feel of your brand into the public eye.
How soon do I need to book my session?
As a rule, the sooner the better. Our Manchester basd team will need time to prepare all their equipment and lay out a structure for the day, as well as getting information from you about exactly which photos you require and arranging any external help.
We ask for a minimum of 2 weeks notice before a shoot, but the more time you can give us for planning and preparation the better the overall outcome will be.
Do I get to choose which photos you take?
Definitely. All of our shoots are guided by your wants and needs and our team are happy to accomodate them.
We ask that all of our clients give us clear guidance on which photos they would like, and our photographers will then direct them on the day to best match your expectations.
Can I have a combination of your different types of images?
There is no limit on what you can ask for. If you just want headshots, that’s great, if you want us to spend an entire day observing and capturing the hustle and bustle of your workplace, that’s great too.
All of our shoots are totally customised by you, and our team are more than happy to take any combination of photos for you.
Is editing included?
Editing is included on a case-by-case basis, as your requirements could take more or less time than others.
This value will be fully agreed by both parties before any payment is made, and so the best way to estimate your cost is to make an enquiry today.
Do I own the rights to the images I commission?
Of course. All of the photos from our shoots are paid for by you, and so are yours to do with as you see fit.
While we do retain the right to use them in our own portfolio as an example of our work, you have the sole rights to use them commercially.
This is after all the primary reason to commission your own imagery.
Can I cancel or postpone my photography session?
Cancellations and postponements can be agreed on a case-by-case basis, and the best way to deal with them is to get in touch as soon as possible.
For emergencies our team are of course highly flexible and we can postpone or cancel right down to the last minute.
I'm not based in Manchester, can you travel to us?
Our team can travel to your place of business to conduct a shoot, however the cost of doing so will have to be recovered in the overall commission cost.
The best way to find out how much this will be for your shoot is to get in touch with us today.
