Project Summary

Product photography for "The Clinger," a unique cigarette case developed by Highly Functional LLC. The primary goal was to create vibrant, personality-driven imagery that showcased the practicality and innovative design of The Clinger. Key challenges included maximizing a limited budget to produce high-resolution photos that effectively communicated the product's features and uses, significantly boosting consumer interest.

Business Objective

The objective was to provide consumers with clear, detailed photography that not only demonstrated how The Clinger functioned but also portrayed its creative aesthetic. The imagery was designed to align with the company's strategy of highlighting The Clinger’s unique attributes and help to educate smoking consumers of its utility.


Operating within a tight budget, the project required efficient resource management and creative problem-solving to deliver the desired quality of product photography.


Role and Responsibilities

As the sole creative director and photographer, I managed the entire photo shoot from conception to final edits. This included setting the artistic direction, capturing all photographs, and performing post-production edits.

Creative Vision and Strategy

Inspired by The Clinger's distinctive characteristics, I developed a creative vision that personified the product through the use of colorful backdrops, dynamic lighting (including bright, moody, and rim lighting), and macro photography. The visual strategy aimed to infuse a sense of personality into the images, reflecting the innovative spirit of The Clinger.
