Photographing Mr Baker’s Bakeshop Cookie Hampers

Hari Raya Aidilfitri is a mere two weeks away and while a few suggested that these images should have been taken and promoted earlier I hardly think it’s late at all, if initial orders from enthusiastic clients were an indication. Part of the delay was figuring out how best to showcase their products and workmanship. I wanted to offer something different this time so I went environmental, took a hamper basket to Anduki Recreational Park for a trial shot, the one you see immediately below.

After a lengthy discussion, my client and I agreed that while this image is conceptually strong, switching back to studio images would satisfy his more immediate requirement. The photo montages consist of shots taken at my studio and others at the client’s kitchen. If you’re in the market for  Hari Raya gift baskets hop over to Mr Baker’s Bakeshop website for order information.

 Assortment of freshly baked cookies includes cranberries walnut, Choc chips walnut, Oatmeal raisins, Buttermilk cookies, Original biscotti, Choc biscotti, Raisins and coconut biscotti, Cornflakes cookies, Chocolate chunk cookies, Chocolate praline, White chocolate cashew nut cookies — all make exceptional companions to coffee and tea!

I have to warn you though, they’re so fresh and crunchy I took one bite and another and another, and before I realized, I had finished a whole container of them just a few days ago while sipping espresso. Clearly, one of the dangers of working from a home studio — over indulgence!😀 shimworld-biscotti-cookies-photography-mrbakersbakeshop-5
