Product Photography Using a Lightbox
May 19, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm UTC+0 at ArtSpace $85
If a picture is worth a thousand words, what are the photos of your products saying? If they aren’t high quality, they might be telling the wrong story and costing you business.
Target Audience: Businesses, Artists, and others who want to learn how to get quality photographs of their products for marketing and promotional use, portfolios, Etsy posts, etc.
Description: Using a lightbox can take your product photos to the next level. In this workshop, we will talk about the elements of product photography for 2D and 3D products of varying sizes. This will include the use of a lightbox, camera essentials, and editing needs for getting the best photographs of your products.
We will have samples of both 2D and 3D pieces for you to get hands-on experience in photographing your products.
Materials to Bring: Use of a lightbox can be done with basic cameras, but for product photography, it is recommended that you use a DSLR. Please bring your preferred choice of camera.

Instructor: Gary Mc Alea, Owner of Gary Mc Alea Photography
Instructor Bio: A true world traveler, Gary Mc Alea was born in Dublin, Ireland, where he spent his childhood. He then moved to South Africa, where he spent about twenty years learning to love nature and animals and developing a love of capturing their incredible moments to share with others. Photography was a way to enhance the colorful stories the Irish can’t help but tell at every turn.
Gary has now lived in Austin, TX, USA for fourteen years. This is where he met his lovely wife, Katheryn, who thankfully shares his love of wildlife and nature. Gary has also travelled in Asia, India, Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand, finding different animals, locations and events to photograph in each area.
When Gary is not out photographing wildlife, he spends much of his time working with businesses on their photography needs. This includes photographing animals for zoos, breeders, and conservation organizations; art photography for independent artists; product photography for small businesses; and much more. With his expert guidance, you’ll soon take your skills at photographing your products to the next level.
