Commissioned Project, Life Supplies Product Photography.

A boot-strapped start-up with an aim of removing single-use plastic from the bathroom, Life Supplies approached me to shoot their upcoming range of refillable toiletries. Familiar with my work for Wild Deodorant, they were looking to enter the same arena and shake things up. And who could possibly make a Life Supplies product photography pitch better than me at that time?

The sleek, premium-looking refillable toiletry dispensers came in a range of shapes and sizes for different products. The collection was designed to replace a shelf’s worth of cluttered single-use packaging in the bathroom. And then refills arrive as needed to your doorstep, in easily recycled packaging.  I used crisp white vinyl backdrops courtesy of Club Backdrops for this project.

The clean, brightly lit environment is minimal by design, giving an approximation of every white-tiled bathroom in the world. This setting focuses all attention to the dispensers, and evokes a satisfying feeling of clean, tidy bathrooms. Especially when compared with a more realistic setting of a sink cluttered with disintegrating single use packaging.

The style is effectively flash photography. This development was an on-shoot client reposition, so I achieved this effect with what I had at my disposal. Which were constant lights, and weak ones at that. I don’t mind challenges by any stretch, but I’m dissatisfied by projects I know I could’ve completed to higher standards. But, this serves as a reminder to me to ensure I’ve drawn a full brief from clients, and received sign-off.

This would be one of my earliest experiences with start-up clients as a freelancer. One that I navigated successfully to produce clean, impactful content for the brand. I was familiar with the frantic start-up world, being fresh from my tenure at Wild Cosmetics. However, the working-late-every-day mindset doesn’t translate to freelance work when you are charging per project. The lesson I learned was to clearly set and maintain my working parameters, and not let another workplace’s culture compromise that of my own.
