Always in demand, become a high paying Product Photographer.  I'll show you what equipment you'll need, how to setup and get the shot, and the best ways to market and sell yourself.
Always In demand, start making money shooting industrial
product photography. If you want to start making great money
as a professional photographer, then shooting product
photography is the way to go. It's lucrative, consistent and
always in demand, making money as a product photographer
has never paid so much.

From iphones and ipads to cars, planes and furniture, all
commercial and industrial products need to be photographed.
There is no larger market for a photographer then the product
photography field. Take a drive through an industrial park in
your city, many of these companies are developing and
assembling new products everyday. All of these products
need to be shot for brochures, slicks, catalogs, web sites
and tradeshow exhibits. Not only that, but these products are
being designed and assembled, redesigned and reassembled
on a regular basis and they'll call YOU back every time.

If you have no idea how to light and shoot industrial or commercial products then this book is for you. You won't need the largest mega pixel camera or tons of lighting equipment either. Yes, I know it's not as glamorous as shooting models in bikinis, but it will pay the bills while you're waiting for that bikini shoot.

I've been shooting commercial and industrial products since 1985, from film to digital. Customers like Westinghouse, Radisson and Marriot hotels, Checkers restaurants, Archway Cookies and many more. Over 90% of my shoots are on location, so you won't need a studio to worry about. I'll also show you my equipment, how to setup the shot, light it and do the Photoshop work. Learn the skills in this book and you'll be able to shoot any product out there. From production to marketing, this 75 page book has over 130 photos, drawings and screen captures to help turn you into a product photography shooting pro.
