My Flatlay Creative Process – Part 1

Flatlay photography. An art of some sorts that I have been taking the last 4-5 years to learn more about. I still think that I have a long way to go, but I’m in a place right now where I’m confident enough in my flatlay skills, and I’m grateful to have added a decent clientele of people and brands that come to me for this kind of work.

But where did it all start for me? And how can you start? Well, I’m shedding a little light on this…

In a first of a 3 part series, I’m sharing my creative process when it comes to flatlay photography, and I’m kicking things off with The Research. See, I don’t believe in going into any kind of flatlay photoshoot blindly. You need to have some kind of plan to help you stay organised and focused instead of ending up with a camera roll full of images that you’ll spend extra time trying to find that right photo.

So if you’re interested in learning more about the things I think you should consider before you do a flatlay photoshoot, watch this video below. You might want to grab some coffee and a notebook for this one – it’s packed with useful information 🙂
