At The Portrait Kitchen, we love doing millinery photography. Our goal is to make a milliner’s hats stand out in all their glory.
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.
When we talked to a few milliners we sensed there was a frustration at having to display hats on stands. By providing quality photography that uses professional models we enable our millinery clients to not only celebrate their work but also produce images for impactful marketing on their websites and social media channels.
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.
