Exceptional Clarity and Detail in Every Photo
We aim for clarity in our photographs, not only with how well the subjects register on the frame but also in delivering your marketing message. We collaborate directly with clients and creative agencies that ideate campaigns, but need help with the execution.
Photography Services for Every Industry
Our passion for photography and bringing creative ideas into fruition inspired us to perfect our techniques to accommodate a broad range of industries and commercial applications. We've mastered the ropes for fashion, product, and e-commerce photography, for instance, but we also love the unique challenges and artistry involved in editorial photoshoots.
Let’s chat over coffee about what you can expect from our Manila-based, professional commercial photographers.
What Is Commercial Photography?
Commercial photography focuses on the product in front of the lens. It’s about capturing the essence and bringing out the most attractive features of an item to stir the audience’s interest (and eventually their desire to buy). Professional commercial photography can bring life to mundane products; bring glamour to fashion catalogs, and character to a brand or company.
Our commercial photographers in the Philippines can do all these. Through commercial photography, we let audiences see what makes your brand, company, or product exceptional and worth a second, closer look.
We use top-of-the-line camera equipment and shooting techniques to draw people’s attention to the exceptional detail created by your artisans, reveal the unique features of a generic item, or showcase your product’s superior quality at a glance.
We offer the following commercial photography services:
- Still-Life / Product Photography
- Website / E-commerce Photography
- Fashion Photography
- Advertising Photography
- Editorial Photography
- Social Media Photography
From basic product photography to high-end editorial styling, in Manila or abroad, Paper Boat Creative can organize photoshoots and produce images that match your brand and purpose.
Regardless of the size of the project, expect to receive your photos on time. Our photographers and videographers in Manila are professionals with exceptional skills, creative talent, and strong work ethics. We maintain high standards in our output and customer service by working efficiently without compromising quality.
Having worked with Getty Images, we have mastered the techniques for producing images that are of stock photo quality: clear and subject-focused with an artistic flair. If you prefer, our portrait photographer can also apply the stock photo technique on your corporate photos, lifestyle photos, and portraits. You’ll then have images that will look great on your website or portfolio.
Our product photographers are some of the best in the Philippines. Armed with powerful macro photography equipment, we take photos with impressive clarity and detail — perfect for print or website product catalogs, posters, billboards, print advertising, and more. With Paper Boat Creative behind the lens, you can rest assured that your products will shine.
We are artists at heart who enjoy discovering new photography styles using whatever lens we can get our hands on. We study how changing and combining apertures, shutter speeds, and lights affect photographs. As such, we have a library of photography techniques that could be very useful for your campaigns.
Styling and Direction
Paper Boat Creative offers excellent value for your money. You will have the services of a complete photography team and a creative director with years of experience in styling and set direction. Our founder, Rebecca Van Ommen, can help conceptualize themes for your photoshoot. Her photoshoots can run the gamut of techniques, from hyper-surreal to clinical and straightforward.
Basic and Advanced Retouching
The best part about hiring a commercial photographer who also knows photo editing and retouching is you can have your pre- and post-production all under one roof. It’s also easier and faster to upgrade to advanced photo retouching services like creative compositions, digital painting, bulk clipping path, and making digital images from scratch.
Professional Commercial Photographers in Manila
Paper Boat Creative has nurtured a reputation for quality photo retouching and editing, but we’ve also been working behind the lens to bring creative concepts to life.
Our founder, Creative Director, and former Getty Images Senior Art Director, Rebecca Van Ommen, has long been involved in advertising campaigns and editorials for the country’s leading print and online magazines. She is known as the professional photographer and videographer for various fashion, product, or brand campaigns. She has explored a wide range of photography styles and types, continuously refining her skills and knowledge behind the lens.
Passing the Knowledge
As she does with her interns for photo editing and retouching, Rebecca also shares her expertise in photography to the younger generation. She trains the newer members of Paper Boat Creative’s photography team on how to take advertorial-quality photos. So when you hire us to do a photoshoot, you might see one or two other photographers taking pictures behind the scenes.
Ms. Rebecca Van Ommen oversees our editorial, product, e-commerce, and fashion photography projects. With her careful attention to detail and penchant for injecting creativity into the mundane, you can expect to see editorial or product photos that steal the spotlight.
