We received another batch of Summer clothes from La Redoute. More invisible mannequin clothing shots, steamed, styled, shot and retouched for the La Redoute website.
We received a presentation box to shoot for Chelsea FC. Adidas had commissioned 5 lifesize models of Chelsea players in action poses that were on show in the shop at Stamford Bridge. The box we were sent had miniature versions of these models that had been created on a 3D printer to form a collectors item. They needed shots of the box itself and close ups of each of the 3D printed figurines.
East Coast Trains needed some shots of food packaging from their Food Bar. They needed some close up, flat on images and some group shots of a range of products.
Adidas sent us a few pairs of the football boots the players would be wearing during the World Cup. They needed a few different angles for an advert they were putting together. All the angles were close ups.

The design had an ‘lomo’, filtered theme so they just wanted a range of images from recognisable buildings to activities you can carry out in Leeds. We shot a range of specific locations to add to some stock images they already had. The advert was rolled out in various nationwide magazines such as Grazia, The Guardian and Evening Standard, and also on their website.

Inside the box was a Climachill top packaged inside a foil ‘insulated’ packet. They just wanted some different angles to show off the box and it’s contents, on white with a shadow.
We were approached by a new client, Cambridge Audio. They wanted some high end images shooting of their electronic equipment mainly as a style guide, but also for use as headers on the website and some close ups. We chose to use a black background for the majority of the images to really emphasise the products. Some were white so this made them really stand out. We used a satin, texture surface to create some subtle reflections below the products and introduced a halo behind the product to give the black some separation. The lighting was then tweaked to highlight the …
In March we were sent the Summer batch of clothing for La Redoute. Around 20 items of clothing that needed shooting as ‘invisible mannequins’. They are steamed, styled, shot and retouched to give the hollow effect.
We were sent some children’s sandals from UGG to shoot for an advert. They weren’t sure exactly what they wanted but just wanted something simple. We made it very simple and they were happy with the finished images.
