Commissioned Project, TRIBE Protein Muesli Product Photography.

Yet another initial project with a brand leading directly to a second! TRIBE commissioned their second project with Studio G right off the back of our first. Our TRIBE Protein Flapjacks project was fun and rewarding; I couldn’t wait to dive into my next product photography focus: TRIBE Protein Muesli.

 

Alas, it appears this will be my last project with this client; Unfortunately start-ups are so often waylaid by their short-sighted treatment of the freelancers they rely on. I’ve reflected before on working with start-ups and the obstacles they present here. Despite this reflection, some mindsets cannot be changed. I’d received warnings from previous suppliers of the brand who gave me indication what was to come, but I chose to give the benefit of the doubt and do my best to cultivate a productive, respectful relationship. I hold my head high knowing that Studio G provided an exceptional service in this instance, and did not compromise on professional working standards to retain a client’s business. It’s tough out there folks! Stay true to yourself, don’t let yourself be taken advantage of.

 

Getting into Sticky Situations Photographing a Protein Musesli Product.

The first obstacle to overcome with this project was learning to spell ‘Muesli’ because I’d end up typing it a lot. And I can’t honestly say I’ve ever needed to spell the word before, so there’s a new thing I learned myself. Next was to pre-solve a problem caused by an inescapable truth: Muesli and milk mixed together in a bowl does NOT look great. My solution was to acquire the ingredients individually, and mix together specifically camera-ready batches of muesli. I then poured this gently into a bowl half-filled with PVA glue. This will hold the cereal without sinking, and presents a nice bright and opaque white to serve as milk visually. I then delicately placed key ingredient indicators like hazelnuts, raspberries and chocolate on top to get that supermarket front-of-the-cereal-box look.

It’s always a joy when a successful project directly results in another. The longer a client and I work together, the more we can develop the project briefs and subsequently, the deliverables. I’ve seen similar effects in play with ongoing projects for Untamed and Spacegoods.
