One of the best and most consistent ways to showcase your garments online is by using a technique known as invisible mannequin photography or ghost mannequin photography. This involves styling and photographing your garments on a mannequin, then very skillfully in our case removing the mannequin in post production.

The main benefit is consistency and low volume shoot numbers can be achieved quickly and on budget, Studio488 uses the latest equipment and works with bot small and larger retails alike, we have EIGHT full time members on the team, NO OUTSOURCING, everything is done in our own 6500sq feet custom studio, which we allow clients to visit unannounced at any time.

So what set us apart from other photographers or studios well firstly we understand and are positioned to help retailers sell stock, we are not here to win photography awards, our goal is to help our partners sell their products, thats it.

5 Reasons to use Studio488 invisible mannequin services.

1. Both directors and owners of the business come from retail/IT backgrounds, and fully understand the entire life cycle from manufacturer to delivery of a product in the ecommerce and retail sectors including warehousing distribution, sales channels, conversions, customer experience, website usability, current trends and technology. With this vast experience in these areas we, through photography, parter each of our customers to achieve more sales and conversions through great imagery.

2. Eight members of the team, we are not a photographer working from his shed and doing this type of shoot to make ends meet, TWELVE YEARS in business and have published over ONE MILLION images proves we do what we say, when we say.

3.No need to book slots, or see if we can fit you in, once your onboard, you basically have our studio at your disposal, simply send in what you want photographing and we do the rest, no need to tell us or ask, just send or drop off and we take care of the rest. As one of our newest customers from AUSTRALIA has just done.

4. Preparation and detail, each and every garment is steamed using professional dry cleaner grade steamers, these retail at £600 each, we NEVER go near your garments with an iron or cheap ebay steamer. Your goods are packed back the way they came with all awing tickets and labels reattached.

5. Price, now we don't pretend to be the cheapest, we are not, the cheaper studios are not commercial studios, and tend to be one or two man bands, nothing wrong with that, but they cannot compete with us in terms of speed, capacity, consistency, availability. As such we will guarantee to be cheaper than ANY like for like studio.
