This course is dedicated to shooting wine. We cover several techniques such as: shooting catalog style, white wine on a black background, red wine on white background, classic look, creative approach, dramatic look.
You will also learn how to prepare a bottle of wine the shot.

  1. Great Class!


    I’ve learned a great deal from this class and though my studio set-up is completely different I was able to adapt and capture the look my clients are asking for. The splash photography is fun and has taken my business to a new level.

  2. Great course!


    Informative and thorough wine course. Thank you Alex and Genia!

  3. Excellent


    The course takes you from beginning to end in the process. The best part is the unlimited access; there is more information than can be fully absorbed in one viewing.

  4. Wine Photography For Professionals


    Excellent course, very informative, Alex is straight to the point of how to get professional results that won’t break the bank. I highly recommend this course.

  5. Good course


    I liked this course in general. There were 2 lessons where video stopped but after reloading browser it continued without problems. I’ve learned a lot about product photography since I’ve started to study at Photigy. Keep up the good work

  6. Wine Photography for Professionals


    The course was very informative as far as the shooting methods. It does not matter if you are a portrait photographer or a Commercial product photographer Alex has some great ideas and explanations as to why he lite the product the way he did. I would take other courses that are offered here at Photigy. The editing of the images could use some better explanation as to what and why Genia is doing. Also she needs to talk into the microphone and not at it as it was difficult to understand what she was saying. This is the only fault with the course, and why I only gave it 4 stars. I have been doing Product photography for 40+ years and I learned something in this course. I started doing product photography with 4×5 or 8×10 view cameras and always with transparencies so the lighting was exact and the strobes or hot lights needed to be color balanced for the film that you were using. Digital has made the turn around time less and now I usually get the art directors approval with in an hour after it is in his mail.

  7. Studio-work is great, postprocessing boring


    The post-processing videos are much too long and boring…. why do I have to wait for the rendering-time…??? could be cut!

  8. very useful


    I learned a lot of thing in a very pleasant way. Thanks Alex et kiss to Gina :)

  9. "show de bola"


    The course was excellent. Only one practical lesson pertaining to pos production was missing: “Commercial Wine Photography – Black splash 1”
    However, with only the post-production class I was able to understand how the shoot was made … Now, it’s practicing.
    I want to congratulate you on the course. I learned a lot from the lighting tips.
    Thank you.

    PS: translation: Google…I hope you understand

  10. Excellent course.


    Alex thanks for your efforts. Your courses really helped me. I used to be an architectural photographer but after I took some of your courses I became mainly product photographer. Really helpful!

  11. Wine photography for professionals


    I like the real-time examples. How the light can change with just a slight movement and how to rectify some of the common problems.
    I’ve learned quite a bit about the actual taking of the photographs and some good tips for retouching.


    I have to say, some of the lessons didn’t flow in the order that I expected – the “how to” after the final shoot !

  12. Wine photography for professionals


    This is a good course, great to see you work through each of the set ups and also be honest to show where things have not worked as you hoped and what you do to correct. The post processing was ok, more explanation as to why she was doing what she was, or why she preferred certain tools would make this 5 stars.

  13. Wine photography for professionals


    Thank you so much for this lesson. You are great teacher.



    thank you so much for the time and energy for making this course.
    it has helped me with so many aspects to light and understanding what is needed for this kind of shooting.
    the post processing was amazing. finding out what could be done after the fact and when to use such techniques were incredible to watch.
    thank you all so much for the help and i look forward to purchasing new courses in the future. =)
