Hats On Stands Photography

What do you do if your budget is tight and you can’t afford our pro millinery photography service? One answer could be to use our hats on stands photography service.

Same high quality but more affordable.

iPhones are great but they will only get you so far. Your buyer is seeking quality, they want something special. How you present your hats, how they are lit and colour balanced, says as much about you, your brand identity, as it does your hats.

We photograph and retouch all images so they look stunning. Our Hats On Stands photography is about presenting hats to look their absolute best, desirable, elegant even luxurious.

Want clean white backgrounds? No problem. Want colour backdrops to enhance drama or a season? Yep we can do that too.

All hats on stands are photographed at multiple angles so your client can see your work from different viewpoints. Because we shoot in high resolution clients can zoom in to see tiny detailing.

We can receive hats from anywhere in the world to be photographed. If you can ship it, we can shoot it.

Want to use your own hat stands? Just include them in your delivery.

We can also shoot a hat and then adjust the colour as required. This means a milliner can create one hat but market numerous colours for their client to choose from. Literally any colour because we can eyedrop from any colour palette or pantone you have.

The Portrait Kitchen is a great way for us to get professional photos of our hats taken.  The professionalism of Jon and Anjee is superb. They project managed the whole shoot for us. We have a way we want things done and both Jon & Anjee delivered on that brilliantly. Milliners around the world can take advantage of this service however much we want to keep these gems a secret.

Jon shot some of the most beautiful and striking images I have seen of my hats.  We talked on the phone before the shoot and he sent me photographs of a good selection of models.  Those we chose were all lovely and highly professional.  I decided to use a make up artist and the lady Jon introduced me to was incredibly talented and was a real asset to the shoot.

We had a busy but relaxed and laughter-filled afternoon with lots of tea and cake, and everyone was delighted with the end results.

“Anjee and Jon have a great set up that they have built in their large kitchen. It is so homely and welcoming. There is none of the fuss and formality of a large photo studio. It feels more like you are visiting friends.

Anjee is always on hand to help keep the show on the road with the models and MUA and I was encouraged to take an active part in the styling so I got exactly what I wanted.

Jon really understands how to use light with his photography to make so my hats stood out.

If you want to take your millinery to the next level with magazine quality images that you can then use for marketing I can’t recommend Jon and Anjee highly enough.”

Jon and Anjee shot product style images of several of my millinery pieces in September 2020.
At The Portrait Kitchen, by their characteristic passionate attention to detail, Jon and Anjee offer a wrap-around photographic service creating stunning portrait style images which highlight and enhance the creativity of a milliner’s work. One of Jon’s specialities is to create drama, using contrast back drops to highlight, in my case, millinery and through his clever use of lighting he appears to almost effortlessly create images that bring your product to life.
Jon edits the images he shoots and then provides a WeTransfer file of the images, in the size you require. His flexible friendly operation is characterised by huge professionalism and dedication to the his art of photography.
Thank you both so much.
