Product Cut -Outs
Product and lifestyle imagery is created for Magee 1866 throughout each season, of all clothing for e-commerce and print media product features. This imagery is used on their own website and by all stockists of their clothing.

Suzy shoots both our website cut outs and lifestyle shoots. We find working with Suzy great – she is very efficient and organised. Suzy organises model, make-up and hair bookings which we find really helpful. The cut out shots are clean and reflect each product’s colour, shape and the details really well. We do 2 – 3 lifestyle shoots each year and these are amazing, Suzy captures the brief perfectly and the results are stunning. The shoots are relaxed and Suzy gets the best out of the models. We are pushing our brand image all the time – capturing our heritage but in a contemporary light and this is coming through in the shoots.
Creative Process | Product Imagery
All clothing is photographed in the studio on mannequins and then retouched to show the garment’s accurate fit & shape. Colours are managed from start to finish to ensure the buyer receives what they saw on their screens.
The mannequin is removed in post production to create the ghost form appearance.
Each background is “cut out” of the image so that it could be used in an overlay style such as in magazine features.
Every garment image is also delivered on a perfect white background so that they would appear to float on the web page in a clean layout without any background box or shadowing.
We capture overview and detail shots of each garment showing their quality and craftsmanship. Details include trims, fabrics, hand finishing & design accents.
Work in practice
Our clients send or courier their clothing to us each season. We photograph them and return the clothing over 3-5 days. We then post produce the images to optimise them for use on the web and in print.
Guidelines and Consistancy
We worked with our clients to create brand guidelines for consistency across all their images from season to season including shot lists for specific garment types, uniform border sizes on all images, file naming, meta data for search engine optimisation and image sizing outputs .
A master list of all products shot can be managed to avoid duplication. An image archive can be created and maintained for cross referencing and as an offsite back up. The in-house teams are able to upload the clothing collections to the web easily as all files are sized, meta tagged and ready for use.
Additional Information about how we create product images.
Large quantities of product shots are booked in advance to guarantee the turn around time that brings the products from the manufacturer to the sales floor with minimum time lag

We carry out ongoing market research to maintain best practices for content delivery and engagement, making sure that the content we create for you always meets the latest standards and requirements for your sales platforms.
