Bamboo toothbrushes and other accessories


Babu is a Portuguese brand of bamboo items for personal hygiene. I’ve been collaborating with the brand from it’s launch, creating the product and editorial images.⁣
For the launch of a few new products, I was asked to create some editorial style images that could shown the full range of products, and a few more images for specific subsets of products.⁣

Since most of this products are used early morning, I wanted to convey the feeling of a light morning space. For that purpose I’ve used a marble slat as background. That provided an excellent contrast to the warm of the bambu.⁣

The images requested were horizontal, so the the products were placed in a way that worked well in terms of composition.⁣

Here is a brief video of the behind the scenes, showing the setup and the image created.
