On track to create over ten million product photos by the end of 2020 for brands like Crate and Barrel, Tailored Brands, J Press, and Kashiyama, Threekit is the largest product photography company by volume in the world.

Much of this growth is driven by increased e-commerce consumption due to COVID-19, as social distancing brings more shoppers online and forces many photography studios to close or reduce hours.

“Retail was heading in this direction, but COVID-19 massively accelerated everything,” says Matt Gorniak, Threekit’s CEO. “Online shopping is changing dramatically, with greater emphasis placed on product visuals to mimic the in-person shopping experience. At Threekit, we get brands there before the competition.”

Even before COVID-19, demand for product imagery was growing. In 2016, the average online shopper expected no more than three images per product. In 2019, the number grew to eight. Meeting this demand is a huge challenge due to cost and complexity.

Traditional product photography can cost $300 per product, and for product categories where items can be configured in many ways, such as furniture, fashion, or manufacturing, the number of photos required to capture a full product line can easily number into the tens of thousands.

With Threekit Virtual Photographer, customers can create unlimited numbers of product photos with different colors, textures, fabrics, and angles at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional photography.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
