Spot the difference.

On Day 7 – our last day’s shooting in the South of France – we shot another project for Liz Gibney…
Setting up the shot
.. this time, a very elegant and stylish villa near the French Riviera village of Saint-Paul de Vence…
The living room in Liz and Jim Gibney's villa near the French Riviera village of Saint-Paul de Vence.
.. which they had worked on.

It was for the most part, sitting up perfect…
The master bedroom before it was lit
.. so really just needed to be lit…

.. after Marie & Liz had tweaked a few things to suit the camera.

So it was like ‘spot the difference’ on day 7 – and then on day 8 we packed-up and heading North, to the beautiful rural Armagnac region of France.

Which means more to follow – so watch this space !!

Rue Alberti

Shooting an apartment today near the Promenade in Nice…
Setting up the shot
.. called Rue Alberti
The main living area designed by Liz Gibney interiors in the Alberti  apartment near the Promenade in Nice.
.. which is the first of a few assignments we are covering for Liz Gibney

.. whose interior design work you can see here…

.. throughout this stunning apartment.

Interesting to look back at Marie’s comments to Liz about this shoot beforehand…

You did a really gorgeous job on that Alberti apartment – I think it’s perfectly styled as is Liz – honestly !! I can see why bookings are so good – well done you !! It’s not the style of place you want to “overload” for the camera at all I reckon. It’s always good to have some extra props to hand just in case they’re needed but compared to what we often shoot, this is sitting up beautifully. Ok, we will need to move the TV etc but of all the shots on this trip, I reckon those 2 images will probably be the most straightforward. We don’t have a problem working around cleaners and have done it many a time !!! Between us all, I think we should be able to get 2 lovely shots within that time slot.

.. as we actually managed to produce 4 lovely shots in the end.

Anyway, more to follow over the next few days – but of to a good start, as this was indeed very Nice 🙂

From Marie & me at the end of our first day, in this beautiful part of France.
