Frequently Asked Questions

Can I be in studio when you are shooting my project?

Yes and No.

Yes – for editorial and on-model shoots we prefer clients to be on-set. However, if you cannot or do not want to attend the day’s shoot no problem- we will use our decades of experience to create the best look for you.

No – for e-commerce, product & apparel shoots- clients are not allowed on set. Not only do we employ some trade secrets, it is much more efficient for our team to get straight to work on e-commerce projects, and you can be guaranteed your project will receive the same quality + attention as all the images you see on our website.

How do I book an on-model shoot?

  • We encourage clients to book their own models. Most companies have a certain demographic, look or branding that they are trying to achieve and you will know what that looks like better than we will. Here are the agencies we have worked with in the past who have wonderful talent.

Please call our office manager if you have any questions or would like to discuss an on-model shoot. (Tanya 310 406 4455)

Our on-model shoots are easygoing and fun, yet fast-paced and professional.

Do you shoot on location?

Almost all of of our work is shot in our studio in Fullerton, CA.  We understand however that some larger projects may require that we travel to the client’s facility. Damion and the team are available to shoot on-site at your location, however, do keep in mind it is almost always more cost effective to ship your project here. If you do need on-site photography, please email or call our studio manager Tanya for on-site rates. tanya@damionlloyd.com Tanya 310-406-4455

Estimated On-Site Day Rates: Full Day: $3500 + Expenses

What format are photos delivered?

Standard product photos are delivered as a high-resolution, 300 DPI Jpegs using maximum quality settings measuring at least 3,000 pixels on the longest side. Besides 1:1 square format (most popular), we can also shoot in 4:5, 2:3 and 5:7 crop ratios, depending on your site’s image requirements. Just let us know your preference before we begin your project.

Additionally, our studio includes the transparent background TIFF files, which allows you to composite individual pieces or change the background to any color you wish without any extra work. Many other studios charge extra for this service- we include it at no extra charge.

Do you offer sample shots?

Yes. Once you have booked your project, we are happy to send several sample shots for you to approve lighting, styling, etc. before we proceed with the rest of your project.

What is ghost mannequin?

Using special techniques, apparel can be photographed styled on a mannequin which is then removed in post production creating a hollow appearance commonly called “invisible manequin,” ghost mannequin” or hollow man.” It’s a great solution allowing a fitted look without the need for a model.

What is flat or flat-lay photography?

We lay your clothing down on a styling table or we pin the garment to the wall- whichever best serves the garment. This type of styling tends towards a very soft and luxurious feeling. To see more of this type work, please visit our pinwall and flat lay gallery here.
