StyleExpo Photography opened its NYC studio in 2000 and its LA studio in 2011. We believe our longevity is due to our DNA!
We are owned and operated by a trio of individuals with backgrounds in client relations, system operations and fashion design.
Our aim for each shoot is to provide the highest level of customer service. We understand our client’s needs as we used to be just like them. This mindset is then supported by our ability to create proprietary systems to meet the diverse and time sensitive requirements of our client base.
Layer this focus with our expert teams of in-house photographers and retouchers and some might say we are unicorns in the commercial photo space.
We offer a full suite of photography services. This includes everything from a one hour table-top shoot to a full-day lifestyle model shoot on location. Our rates are hourly for those clients wanting to participate at the photoshoot and per-shot rates for all our send-in work. This variation is just another example of how our DNA is about offering what works best for our clients and making it happen.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
"I need 40 flat shots done this week, with the pictures delivered by the end of the week. Our samples can only be out for a day and the press is clamoring for these pictures! Can you do that?"
"My jewelry has textured surfaces and the pictures I have don't show that. Do you think you can shoot them to show that detail?"
"I only have 5 pieces to shoot, but I need them done now and am on a really tight budget. Can you work with me on that?"
"We need to photograph 50 +/- pairs of shoes every month, four angles of each, and make it look like they were all shot the same day. Is that something you can do?"
We get asked questions like this every day and the answer is invariably "yes"! That's how we've been able to meet the product photography needs of the fashion industry for over 15 years. Whether you're a perfectionist or budget driven, if you have a small run of samples or a large, ongoing program, ecommerce needs, lookbook or internal purposes...from scheduling to final picture delivery, we make the whole process easy, cost effective and on your schedule.

MY JEWELRY IS INCREDIBLY DETAILED AND DELICATE, WILL YOU BE ABLE TO SEE THAT IN THE PHOTOS?

CAN YOU HELP ME FIND A MODEL?

DO I NEED GHOST OR PIN-UPS?
"Pin-ups" are flat images of the clothing styled and pinned to a white board which is removed in post. "Ghost" images are styled on a mannequin with the reverse interior being added in post, giving it a 3-D look as if the wearer was invisible. Check out this blog for more info.
