At The Portrait Kitchen, we love doing millinery photography. Our goal is to make a milliner’s hats stand out in all their glory. Wherever you are in the world we can photograph your hats.
We shoot in a clean and uncluttered style to reduce visual distraction and draw focus to your work. We want to make sure your hats and head-wear look their best, enabling your clients to quickly visualise how a hat looks on them.
We would liken our work more to product photography rather than portraiture because the main players are your hats. But we take proven portraiture techniques to humanise hats, to create an emotional connection and make them more desirable.
By providing high quality photography that uses either a hat stand or professional model we enable our millinery clients to not only celebrate their work but also produce images for impactful marketing on their websites, online store and social media channels.
We can photograph your hats on a hat stand because some milliners only want product images. This service is less expensive as there is no model or make up involved.
Our studio is in our large kitchen, hence our name. We use professional studio lighting, colour correction and neutral backgrounds with colours that match your hats.
We always work with experienced models and actors to showcase your hats. Using a model who knows how to position their head, work their posture and be relaxed in front of the camera creates great millinery shots.
So, if you want images beyond the hatstand then find out more below.
