The Commercial photos are for what ? Our obligation in respect to this piece of project is to generate some marketable commercial advertisement to feature a large collection of designer bags, shoes, apparel, accessories and other items from our Italy based client(LUXURY LEATHER), where all models will pose with the various items and exhibit a commercial character to attract consumer's attention. It’s very simple and works the same as any typical promotional or commercial advert shoot. The end product from the commercial shoot is an online media ad, electronic billboards and network media that would convince the public to make these collections a top choice among others.
