As a professional photographer of 15 years. Lyndsey James worked with many boutique brands as a commercial photographer and gathered, foraged and painted many beautiful backdrops to use in her client's photo shoots.
Seeing a gap in the market she started teaching brands how to capture their own amazing photos and her popular e-courses reached students across 6 continents when they first launched in 2012. Following a 10 year anniversary update for 2022 they are now avaiable once more to creative business owners who are keen to learn essential lighting and styling skills for capturing great product shots.
Lyndsey has spoken at craft & business events on the topic of Photography in retail for renowned brands across Europe, including Etsy, Triumph, Enterprise Nation, Kirstie Allsopp, The CHA, Time Inc publications and many more and her writing has appeared in many seller handbooks and pro photography magazines.
In 2015 the Photo Boards® backdrops collection was born, replicas of Lyndsey's own backdrops collection.
The Photo Boards® brand grew fast with a tribe of customers around the world enjoying not just the benefit of an easy to use, solid yet lightweight background, but one that is a true to scale 1:1 replica of a beautiful, unique texture.
From well-known household brands including Nestle, Teapigs and Percol to luxury labels including Links of London, Pantherella and many more (and not forgetting the thousands of independent business owners). Photo Boards® are now the go-to brand for high quality backdrops among professionals and enthusiasts alike and are stocked by renowned camera retailers.
