Whether it’s just a simple flatlay of a rug, or unique, original work, if it can be done in a studio we do it! Lifestyle photos are about more than photography. They are mini-productions, involving creativity, orchestration, as well as beautiful photos that don’t just draw audience views- they spark aspiration.
- Product Detail Photography- These are close-up shots in the right lighting to show off your product features in exquisite detail. From beautiful textures to high quality manufacturing, enthrall your clients with the quality of your products.

Our in-house lighting experts ensure the right ambient hue, shading, and color to ensure the photograph does justice to your beautiful products. Use these photos to create digital browsing carousels, or even interactive experiences!

Whether the photos are used in print publications, outdoor adverts, or digital marketing campaigns, they will tell your campaign story perfectly.
The modern buyer’s journey is video. A stunning photograph is still the best way to capture attention, but you need a video to continue holding it. produces and creates a wide variety of visual motion work, including:
- Videos: We produce and create a variety of short-form video content, including Product videos, Explainers, How-to’s (Instructional videos that complement/replace instruction manuals for products), testimonials, and Lifestyle videos that showcase how the products fit into your lifestyle.
- Animation: While classical videography is great for live-action shoots, animation can add a new level of engagement to a video. For example, adding animated charts, graphs or even embedded motion graphics to a video can reinforce important takeaways and make the video more impactful. Manipal Studios creates engaging live action animation for product demos, brand videos, explainers, and social media content.
- Stop motion: Stop motion plays a sequence of still images to create an illusion of motion. This can be a very engaging and cost-effective way to show product unboxing, product assembly and other aspects of the consumer’s product experience. It is widely used by brands and eCommerce platforms to create explainer videos in a fun, engaging way.
- 360° Animation: 360° Animation refers to short motion videos of products with or without models. It is one thing to see a nice photo of a model wearing a shirt, but quite another to see it being worn in a video by a model who turns around to show the garment from every angle. In addition, these videos can be stopped at any point to capture screenshots of on-model product use.
