This was originally recorded as a live webinar for The Design Trust (April 4 2013).
I have now uploaded for everyone to enjoy and use as a reference.
In this practical & visual 1-hour webinar specialist photographer Yeshen Venema will explain step-by-step how to get the most out of working with a professional photographer – tips and tricks from the one who knows!
Yeshen is a freelance photographer who specialises in working with small businesses and designer makers. In the last six months alone he has worked with over 40 different sellers photographing everything from ceramics and textiles to jewellery andpapercuts – so he knows a thing or two about the challenges of a product photo shoot. yeshenvenema.com
