Creating lifestyle medical product photography can be challenging. Because of patient confidentiality rules and patient safety, it can almost never be done “in the real world.” There are complications not found with other product photography. Instead we create lifestyle photos in a studio setting using models and a demo device.
On White Product Photography
The customer had a need for on white photos of their product for use in their marketing material. This is pretty straight forward with a cyclorama wall and appropriate lighting. The only complication is a need to retain contract on the while and light grey portions of he devices.
During the shoot we captured a variety of angles, close ups and “full body” medical device portraits.
Lifestyle Medical Product Photography
With that out of the way, we moved on to the lifestyle medical production photography with our models. The market for this device is older patients and so we made sure to have both a male and female model of the proper demographic. During a shoot like this we create a lot of variations on a theme.
The goal was to showcase the design of the product, and also realistic use scenarios. In fact, the company had trained representatives there that helped actually set up the devices. Our models got to experience the therapies both provide.
By the end of the day we delivered around 750 possible images for selection and retouching. The images documented the process of using the devices for patients and also showcased their design. Ultimately the images will be used for both marketing and training material.
