Tips for photographing your products!

Professional colourful product photography

At GGS, we believe that using highly professional images is a key factor when it comes to selling products. A company website or brochure is also a “shop window” therefore poor quality photographs will not benefit a business and potential customers will buy elsewhere. We’ve been providing a creative, commercial photography service for over 37 years now and some would say we’re experts in our field! All of our professional photographers are Associate members of the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP) and always work to the very highest standards. Our on-site facilities include a large, drive-in studio with infinity… Read more »

Giving it LARGE in Poland

Office Hallway with blue wave graphic on walls

When a client asks if we do big prints (to which we say ‘yes’ of course) we can never be sure just how big they have in mind. So when Agile Marketing asked if we could produce bespoke printed wallpaper, big enough to cover whole walls, we got quite excited… and said ‘yes’ again.   This was for their client, Space-pod, who had designed and refurbished a building in Krackow, Poland, as a new call centre. Virtually every wall, on several floors, needed to have a graphic covering and we produced nearly 300 sq metres of smooth, hard wearing, wallcovering,… Read more »

Christmas tubing

GGS team building exercise

Rather than just going for a standard Christmas meal, the powers that be (Me, Pete and Dunc… well… mainly Dunc in this case) decided that it would be a good idea to start the evening off with a bit of tubing at the Norfolk Snowsports Club on Whitlingham Lane. ‘What on earth is tubing?’, I hear you ask – as did most of the staff. Basically it’s nothing more than travelling at speed from the top of the ski slope to the bottom, but instead of having to stand up on a couple of planks (too energetic) you get to… Read more »

Experience counts

Experienced photographer award

Our Director/Photographer, Peter, has just received an award from our professional body, the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP for short). The citation says – ‘This is in recognition of 40 years in membership, throughout which he has consistently upheld the aims and standards of the Institute’. That’s a lot of photographs! More to the point, the BIPP is the professional qualifying body for photographers and Peter has been closely involved with promoting the highest standards of photography and professionalism over the years. Even to the extent that at one stage he was elected as National President of the BIPP… Read more »

Seasonal giveaway by GGS

GGS handing out leaflets at exhibition

  At this week’s Norwich Business Breakfast, run by Norfolk Chamber of Commerce, GGS ran a ‘Spot the Difference’ competition for everyone attending.

The first prize was £250 worth of professional photography, to help the winner kick-start their 2013 marketing campaign. This, along with a bottle… Read more »

Classic Beauty web design

Interior of a classic car

  Even if you’re not a petrol head you’ll appreciate the undeniable beauty of a classic car. Well, Peter was in seventh heaven recently when he was photographing the workshops of Classic Car Restorations. The photographs will be used on a new web site we are building for them at the moment and amongst the cars recently completed was this lovely Triumph Spitfire, which will shortly be going to it’s owner overseas. It was immaculate, with a fully refurbished body and interior. They are working on a variety of vehicles at the moment, from a Bedford camper van to a… Read more »

B2B presentation

GGS have taken a stand at The Chamber of Commerce conference ‘Unlocking Success’aimed at giving local businesses the opportunity to find out how to maximize the success of their businesses and giving a platform to a host of inspirational and recognized national and local keynote speakers from Industry and Government. This event attracts representatives from many of the top companies in the region, all of whom can benefit from the professional photography, design, web and exhibition services we offer. We aren’t sure that they are aware of that (!) so we want to put them right.

Wow! This is so …*

Hamlin electronics exhibition stand

*This stand was so sexy that Google wouldn’t allow us to put it in the title. Electronica, the world’s leading trade fair for electronic components, systems and applications opened its doors in Munich on November 13th, and Team GGS were on site over the weekend building a 36 sq meter stand for global electronic sensor manufacturer ‘Hamlin’ who are based at Broadland Business Park in Norwich.  Hamlin are a long standing client of ours who have been using our photography and design as part of their marketing collateral for many years. They know they can rely on us to do… Read more »

Using professional photographs on your website

Professional shot close-up of blue eye

You’re already aware that a good website is an all-important marketing tool for a business, but what makes it good? An appealing look and feel for one thing, so you wouldn’t want to put your site visitors off with fuzzy, badly lit photographs would you? You could have the best website design in the world, but it would be ruined by using poor photographs. Worry not though, because there’s help to hand! We are on a mission to save good website design by complementing it with only the very best in professional photography – to showcase our clients’ products and/or… Read more »

Field of Dreams

Design of Zennyo website

If you build it they will come – we took this literally and see what happened! The original quote form the movie ‘Field of Dreams’ was ‘If you build it he will come’ but you’ll forgive us at GGS for the slight change to suit our needs! Our business continues to grow and continues to seek innovations for our clients that will really make them stand out from the crowd. The latest example of this approach is Zennyo.com which is well worth a look, not just because GGS designed and built it but because Zennyo can be a great benefit… Read more »
