Biteback clothing

We were sent some clothing from a new clothing company to photography for their website. Biteback Sports make sportswear that repels biting insects to help fight distractions, irritation and the transfer of diseases like malaria. They just needed some invisible mannequin shots for their online shop. They needed to be cutout and on a graduated black background.  

Adidas 360 Boot Selector

We had a brief come in from Adidas for something slightly different to the norm. They had designed a minisite package to send to companies so they could add it straight into their websites. The package was referred to as the 360 Boot Selector. It consisted of 4 sections that opened up to show a choice of 4 rendered rugby boots that could be rotated 360 degrees with the mouse. They wanted to replace the fake looking render with some detailed photography. We built a 360 rig and calculated 70 shots per 360 to keep the rotation smooth. We shot the boots on black …

Print flatdown

A local print company asked us to photograph some of their most recent items of work for their website. They just wanted some flat down shots on white with a shadow so they could crop into it however they wanted.

‘Visit Leeds’ promotion

We were asked to shoot some photos around the city for a ‘Visit Leeds’ advert. 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.

RSA Insurance archive shoot

RSA (Royal Sun Alliance) Insurance asked us to visit their London city centre branch to do some photography. They are moving buildings to a brand new high rise that’s currently being built, and wanted to create a record of all the historical artefacts they have stored securely in the building. The majority of these artefacts dated back to the war when insurance from fire was an important business. The collection included fire helmets, plaques and fire buckets amongst other items. We spent two days with 2 teams shooting everything ready for them to be recorded, packaged and moved to the …

Asda Direct website

Last week we received some products from Asda House to shoot for their Asda Direct website. This batch were homeware items including cushions and throws and some bathroom accessories. This was a tight turnaround – arrived Friday, needed for Monday and we made it a priority to hit the deadline.
