It’s always a real thrill to see my photography published and credited in print, so I was really amazed to see some of my behind the scenes unit photography work, being put to good use in a 6 page spread Magazine article ( Digital FilmMaker) about an on-going filmmaking production of a Horror / Thriller move called ‘Simon’. (by writer/Director Warren Badenski)
Below is one small extract from the magazine (showing my magazine credit of course!) and a few other photographs that can also be seen in the article. You can also see more photographs from the original shoot and my film poster concepts on a previous Unit Photography Blog update!
To read the magazine article in full, you can find it in, Issue 16 of Digital FilmMaker Magazine; and is available to purchase in most major high street retailers.
Commercial Product Photography Commission for BASSBUDS
I was recently commissioned for a commercial product photography shoot, by BASSBUDS (a subsidiary brand of Electrobox Ltd), who along with their partners at Swarovski, offer more fashion focussed, unique and stylish In-Ear Headphones.
As well as their wider audience BASSBUDS products particularly appeal to those who are more fashion conscious; and are supported by many celebrity endorsements in the fashion and entertainment industry! It could well be argued that I’m biased, saying something so good about a client and their product, however I do say with sincerity; they have a really quality feel and build standard; and sound reproduction is fantastic to match – they have literally blown my old earphones away!!
I was contacted by a PR Executive, from the company who had seen some of my previous product photography commissions; and in particular my work on jewellery photography that fit with the ‘look’ they wanted for this particular run.
From the outside this would appear to be a simple product photography shoot of some earphones. However when you consider the complexities for shooting and lighting something so very small and still being able to capture the fine detail, as well as ensuring that the essence of the brand is expressed to the company brief; you will know that commercial photography work is nowhere near as simple as it seems!
I challenge anyone to be consistent across 40 individual earphones, 40 jack plugs, 40 controllers and their assorted display boxes over a few full days of commercial photography work!
Having said that; and despite this being an extremely challenging process, it has also been one of my most rewarding commercial shoots to date!
