We delved backstage to meet with Ideal World’s fantastic photography team: Steve, Kris and Amber. Without these three, you’d never get to see our great products on our website! We met with them for a quick Q&A about what they do.
How long does it take to take a photo and then edit it to be uploaded to the website?
“It depends what it is. If it’s a product, it could be done within half a day to a day. If it’s something small and not reflective it’s usually easier to photograph.”
What kind of experience do you need to become a photographer?
“We’re actually from different backgrounds completely. I went to university to study it (Amber) whereas Kris kind of got experience and landed a job. No real experience is needed other than you need to know what you’re doing.
“To be a proper photographer, you need a lot of knowledge photographically, but yeah it depends on what route you take.”
What’s the best project that you’ve worked on here at Ideal World?
“Probably this years Birthday event, Birthday 2018. With all the firebreathers and stuff – all the cabaret acts were cool.”
Do you have any tips for fellow photographers out there?
“Keep on trucking! Try new things and don’t be afraid to experiment. Maybe go to university if you’re passionate. Practice makes perfect.”
