I meet quite a few entrepreneurs with new products that need to be photographed, and I love to hear their stories! I was recently contacted by Matt Ellison, maker of the GurglePot, to do some product photography of his newest invention: the ChirpyTop. Now it just so happens that we were already the proud owners of a GurglePot, so I was very keen on meeting the man behind the brand!
If you don't know what a GurglePot is, you’ve probably seen one — they are everywhere! GurglePots are ceramic water pitchers in the shape of a fish. The charming feature of the design is the gurgling sound the pitcher makes when pouring liquid. They are fun and functional — and come in over 22 beautiful glossy colors. I think Matt is on to another winning concept with ChirpyTop.
ChirpyTop brings the same conversation-starter effect to pouring wine. This time the design is a bird that chirps as wine flows from its beak. Available in six vibrant colors and metal finishes, ChirpyTops are packaged like a new iPhone and make great gifts. Both products are great for entertaining and will have guests young and old smiling as they fill their glass!
My approach to the photography was to shoot the ChirpyTop like a high-end tech product. Taking a low angle and shooting up at the product made a star out of the packaging and really elevated the perceived value. And what entrepreneur doesn’t like the sound of that?
Shoot with us if mediocre isn't your thing!
