ABOUT ME

Welcome to my site!

My name is Efraim Gavrilovich, I am a professional engineer and formerly R&D engineering company’s owner. I live and work in Vancouver in beautiful British Columbia. I have been a part-time semi-pro photographer for over 40 years. Few years ago I left the engineering field, closed my engineering company and dedicated 100% of my time to travel photography, studio (portraits and headshots), interior and product photography. For my assignments I use two full-frame professional cameras and various pro lenses suitable for most demanding jobs.

I also teach “Introduction To Digital Photography” to novices and mid-range photographers in out-of-the-classroom, outdoors environment. I will also show you how to post-process your digital images in Adobe LightRoom to achieve the best results.

"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."

What is Product Photography?

Product photography uses specific techniques to showcases products in an attractive way and entice potential buyers to purchase specific products.
Product photography is an essential part of both online and offline advertising for successful catalogues, brochures, magazine ads, billboards, online ads and company websites, specifically when selling products direct to consumer.

Consumers seek time-saving shortcuts all the time, and their attention naturally gravitates to the quickest way to gather information: images.
Product images not only testify to the quality of your product, but also serve as windows into your ecommerce store, creating two very important things:

1. Transparency
2. Trust

Day 2: Amsterdam

Got up in the morning and went to the first destination of the day – Anne Frank Museum. It was an easy walk from our hotel, about 16 minutes. On our way we found a coffee kiosk on a canal and had a cup of coffee, which was quite good, and a croissant. We sat at the picnic table by the kiosk and had our breakfast while enjoying a beautiful view of the canal. We have booked our 10am Museum visit online well in advance due to a limited number of people that the small building can accommodate simultaneously. Booking in advance is required even for an Amsterdam Card’s holders, although admittance is free for a cardholder. We had purchased our 48-hours cards about a month prior to our arrival. Having this card was a smart thing to do as the card covers all museums, canal boat ride, public transportation and discounts at selected restaurants.
