So I get asked from time to time what I do now since I graduated. And I always tend to give the same lame excuse or answer like, "I'm a catalog photographer" or "I shoot Snuggies". I never fully go into detail about my job and what I do exactly. But I suppose one can only speculate so much about a catalog photographer. Usually bad photography and cheap looking sets are run alongside this job and many of the products my company does happen to sell are quite silly. Ridiculous in fact. And I only mean that in the sense that a lot of these products are so far fetched and unique, one would have to find them all situated between the pages of a catalog. No one else would want to sell them any other way.
The job is fun and I get to test out a lot of the stuff too. (If it doesn't break on me) Mostly it's the people I work with that makes it great. So below I compiled a small bit of what I actually shoot and do during my days here at Home Trends.
So let me tell you about some of those wacky products that I get to shoot. This one here is a mosquito repellent necklace. You simply turn on the high frequency pitch that insects and mosquitoes hate hearing and enjoy your stay outdoors, bug free. I'm not sure of the radius that this product can yield but a fellow employee and I did turn on the necklace and could hear the "high frequency pitch". Hmmm...perhaps the label should read, "Repels mosquitoes, dogs and some humans"? It was a pretty annoying sound.
