Stop Scrolling

When was the last time an image made you slow down or even stop to look closer, and then read the text too?


The competition to achieve just that today is fierce, and you need every help you can get to achieve it.

New stats say that your image has only 3 seconds to make an impact (no pressure right?)


Our client was graced with big competition to engage/entice young adults with makeup and this is what we delivered.


Social media now is king, quality and creativity is noticed and appreciated. With the new features like Instagram shopping tag, users are already able to buy products without leaving the app. The possibilities are endless, as well as opportunities.

The time to make sure your social media presence is as polished as you can make it is… now!

Let me know what your thoughts are?

Cheers, Mirza

Did someone say Drone?

This was a super fun shoot for our client Skyrocket Toys. An exciting product that can actually fly.

Even the name is cool, it’s called Sky Viper Drone. Because the Sky Viper engineering has enhanced the Cleanflight control firmware which is commonly used in racing class drones. The result is Viperflight, a state-of-the-art technology that makes Sky Viper drones incredibly stable, fast and easy to control. Super easy to control actually, and fun to use in the studio too.

It’s lines as well as the “viper head like” logo inspired this shot.

We wanted to show the sleek design and exciting lines that viewed from this angle make it look almost menacing. With the dark background and the spot lights pointed only to selected areas like the front camera (yes you can shoot HiRes video with it - just imagine the possibilities), the logo, front “fangs” and the blades.

And yes this calls for a #lovemyjob

Now for the technical part:

2x Elinchrom BRX500, 2x Elinchrom D-lite 400it, 2x Elinchrom Mini Recta SoftBox, Elinchrom Mini SpotLite projector attachment, Canon EOS 6D, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM.

Why this photo?

As a product photographer, I was always inspired by the liquor photography. Just look at all those artistic bottle designs that you can only see in perfume bottles. That special design that sends us all a message that this liquid is something to behold. It's a promise by the manufacturer that you will enjoy every single drop of this heavenly drink.

It is so special, that pouring it in any regular glass would diminish the elegance of the experience. And I thought about that glass, searched for it, and finally found the balance that this one has with the enchanting swirls of the bottle. Then it was a matter of the surface you would place the two on. It could not be any simple table, it had to be an old antique mahogany table surface. The one to help you transform yourself closer to the very selective gentlemen's club, where sipping it would mean that not only you belong there, but you can taste the essence of success.

Why the purple background you might ask? Because purple was always regarded as a Regal color that fits perfectly to the idea I had when composing this image. Attention to detail always rewards you in the end. 

How I managed to get the glorious amber liquid to shine in this shot is more technical in nature, so for those of you that are interested, feel free to check out my Facebook page for the specifics.
