Bottleshots was set up by Tim Whittaker Photography to fill the demand by boutique producers of food and wine to photograph and archive their jars, bottles and products.

It has become the one-stop product & wine bottle photography & archive service.

Tim can photograph your products and wine bottles and store them online for you and your marketing company to access and download in a hi-res file from our BOTTLESHOTS SERVER

Tim has a very streamlined system in place to photograph and store all your product images so that they will be accessible from anywhere in the world for download and use in any marketing media. Simply courier your bottles or products to Tim’s office and he will photograph them in his specially designed product studio and upload them ready for use. They will be kept online for download for 3 years, after which they will be available via email request for up to 10 years.
