Looking back.

As I look forward to what 2016 may have in store for us.

Currently trying to tidy-up the studio a bit – or the Top Hen House as I call it, as that is what it once was – and I do still remember as a young boy, collecting eggs in there every day after school to make some money – which after about 10 years, was enough to enable me to buy my first camera smile

Anyway, as you can imagine, 40 years on, there isn’t any hens in there anymore; however, there is now a lot more in there than just that one wee camera.
Mountains of stuff in fact – and boxes piled high with stuff that does bring back a lot of memories too.

Especially the props and items we would have used on jobs like this…
The room set inside a warehouse near Dungannon where we were prodcing an image of the Ribbed Shaker Sandy Birch kitchen by OS Doors Ltd.
.. which is we were shooting kitchen & bedroom sets a warehouse near Dungannon.

Ten years ago – but it really doesn’t seem that long ago that Marie here…

..and the guys from OS doors…

.. were working on this set.

This was actually just one of 5 sets that was built…

.. all which we were also able to shot from different angles too…

.. which meant we were able to work on some while the others were still being completed…

.. so needless to say, this was a huge lighting…

.. and styling job too…
Prague-Ivory bedroom doors by OS Doors Ltd with French fabrics known as 'toile de jouy' and 'ticking'
.. which actually kept us pretty busy throughout that year – as there was something like 60 kitchen & bedrooms sets to shoot in total.

This being the very first one we shot…

.. which was then use in their over sized A3 catalogue, as seen here…

.. along with just a few of the other images we produced at the time too.

And I see they are still using many of these images on their website too….

.. even after all this time – as well in their more current ‘Posh Kitchens Cosy bedrooms’ catalogue…

.. which included many new images that we produced in the showroom at their factory too.

Anyway, I still have many of the items that we used in these images, in boxes gathering dust – so I think it’s time that much of that was sent to the local land-fill site. Still, some of the stuff is pretty timeless I reckon – which is often what we would aim for too, when we are creating images for others to use, i.e. timeless images that they would want to use of years to come.

So just looking back here, as I look forward to what 2016 may have in store for us, as we approach the end of another year – as I really enjoyed doing this type of work.
