Say no to Plastic: Chilly Bottles, Stylishly Sustainable

Chillys Bottles

Chilly's mission is to accelerate the adoption and everyday use of reusable products. 

“Products with the perfect balance of distinctive style and unrivalled performance.”

The idea for the Chilly’s Bottle was to launch a product that combines the convenience of a plastic water bottle, with the high performance technology and eco-friendly benefits of a traditional flask.

The result: a reusable water bottle that offers outstanding performance in a modern and stylish design, that people love to have with them at all times.

Chilly’s is a London based business, founded in 2010 and run by James Butterfield and Tim Bouscarle.

We love their designs, which come in a broad spectrum of colours and patterns which are constantly evolving. Their pastel range is a particular favourite of ours in the studio, the bright pastel colours with the minimalist design  and ultra-functionality make the product exciting, eye-catching and fun.

Recently they came into the studio to shoot their newest rage of bottles. An exciting collection of awesomely colourful bottles which we couldn't help but fall in love with. See examples below:

They have recently been doing a selection of new collaboration items with the likes of Emma Bridgewater & Zanna Van Dyke which we are incredibly excited by.

There are many benefits to these bottles beyond their designs though. Not least of all is that they are insulated, keeping your drink hot for up to 12 hours or cold for up to 24. They have been coming to the UShoot Studio for several years now, and s we have of course all been persuaded to own one of these bottles in the studio and we can tell you with absolute certainty that they are very effectively insulated. Almost magically so.

On top of this, having a metal product means we move away from the harmful toxins that can be released from disposable plastics. And of course plastic bottles are an economic crisis, with millions of tons of bottles going to land-fill. In the UK alone we fail to recycle around 16 million plastic bottles a day.

This then is a product we can truly get behind.

5 common post-production mistakes made in product photography And how to avoid them…

Getting great photography is important, but more often than not without a little post-production your photography won’t be great.

There are dangers though when it comes to post-producing your imagery. Do too much to it and it will look fake, too little and you won’t have the best image possible. Then you have to think about your branding, your look and make sure the production on each image is the same so that you get a consistent look across your collections.

For these reasons it is unlikely that any product photography will be left completely untouched, so we have put together a short list of 5 of the most common mistakes people make and how to avoid them.
