Feature Friday: ShotByLucy

As primarily an online seller, I know first hand how important it is to have high quality product shots. When customers can't see your items in person, you need to ensure your images are as clear and representative of the product as possible! 


ShotByLucy specialise in product photography, providing online retailers worldwide with lovely photographs that perfectly capture the products!
I'm extra excited about this talented lady as I recently won a competition on Twitter to get some of my designs captured by Lucy, I can't wait to share them with you. 


I caught up with Lucy to ask her a few questions about her beautiful work.

Have you always been interested in photography?
Ever since I was a little girl!  On holidays I always had the camera. I played up hell about taking it and then never wanted to carry it as it was too heavy. But I took the odd few snaps! I still have that exact camera now... A Minolta 5000 AF. It was very trendy at the time!

Wow, that does look heavy! What equipment do you use now?
I use Canon. I’ve used all types of cameras really... ranging from the old 35mm film cameras such as Pentax and Practika to Hasselblad, Nikon Digital SLR and now Canon. I like to experiment! Ha ha

What made you get into product photography specifically?
I was kind of thrown into product photography as I worked for a lot of online retailers who were using supplier images alone to try and sell their products and wanted to improve them.



What do you feel sets you apart from other product photographers?
I tend to be ‘one on one’ with the clients.  I make sure that there is a good understanding of their requirements and advise what’s the best way to display their products. It’s good too. Customer service is very important to me.

Mary Portas would be proud! What are your plans for the future?
I have many plans for ShotByLucy, but I can’t tell you just yet! 

And finally, what's been your favourite thing to photograph so far?
For those of you who know me or follow ShotByLucy, then I am sure that you will know the answer to this.  I really wouldn’t be able to choose as I see so many beautiful things.  How about I narrow it down to a ‘category’? ... Sparkly things.  Come on... I’m a girl!
