BizcommunityComment on the gap in the market or the problem the company seeks to solve.

Acquiring the latest technology in the e-commerce photographic/video space is expensive. We have created a unique studio making it easy for brands to create e-commerce imagery and creative fashion content:
  • Our StyleShoots Live system allows you to shoot on-model stills and videos.
  • Our StyleShoots Vertical system makes it easy to create beautiful ghost mannequin images.
  • Our StyleShoots Horizontal system allows you to quickly and easily create flat lay images with the touch of a button.
Our footwear solution offers still photography fully deep-etched at any angle required - with or without shadow including a full 360-degree solution allowing consumers to interact with the footwear in the most unique way.

BizcommunityWhat is its competitive advantage?

In a nutshell, Studio[K]irmack is the most advanced e-commerce photographic/video studio in South Africa. We are the only specialist product photography studio in Africa that offers a comprehensive service using StyleShoots machines. These machines shorten the process of delivering high-quality product shots for your website and are used in-house by brands such as Woolworths and TFG locally and globally Zalando, Nike, Macy’s, Forever21 and many more.

Research shows the impact quality and the number of images per product have on conversion rates is massive.

This means e-commerce product images need to go online faster, at a higher quality and in much larger quantities than ever before.

Our studios can be rented by brands or can be operated by our qualified photographic and video team.

We offer a full turnkey solution, a solution that is based exactly on our clients’ needs and requirements. We don’t only offer a studio set up but we also offer the full post-production services: concept, design, retouching, digital content, e-commerce, video production.

Staying relevant as a partner to our clients.
