Striking a pose…

.. and conveying a message.

We tend to specialize mainly in interiors these days – but we still occasionally do other types of shoots too – such as this one…
Brian Baird of the Repstor team sitting in the car studio.
.. which was shot in our studio a few days ago.

From my perspective, in terms of lighting & composition, it was very straightforward – as it was basically just a one light job in the cove.

However, with this type of shoot, it’s important for the client to think through the style of shots that will work best for the company – dress code, setting, poses and so on.

In this case, the Marketeer had a very clear vision of the images and message she wanted to convey for a new software company called Repstor – even for the slightly more formal line up, expressions were relaxed and approachable. Everyone was simply asked to wear what they normally would wear…

.. be it smart casual, suits or whatever !!

And then to convey more of everyone’s individual personality, they each brought a prop…
Alan McMillen of the Repstor team.
.. for a more light-hearted feel.

And finally, there was young Theo, who was ‘The Star’ for the upside down shot…
.. with the promise of some much coveted Lego pieces greatly helping 🙂

So just some very simple shots, to help them convey the message that they want to tell about themselves & their company – which was a little bit different for us these days.

Dulux white…

.. gets two thumbs up.

We where shooting a three story period terrace in West Wittering yesterday…

.. a small village and civil parish, on the Manhood Peninsula, in the Chichester district of West Sussex – which is Beth & Jason’s home from home on the weekends.

It was once the village Rectory, which was a bit tired and dated it seems; however, Beth has completely transformed the home and lightened it up…

.. with decor and furnishings.

Dulux white was used throughout…

.. and I had to smile while listening to the 3 ladies (Beth, Marie and Beth’s friend Vanessa) discuss how perfect this colour was.
Not sure if Farrow & Ball would agree – but hopefully the Editors will like it wink

From my point of view, as a photographer, it sure was easy to light…

.. so Dulux white gets two thumbs up…

Anyway, a big thanks out to Beth once again – both Marie and I love what you have done here – so we will keep you posted.
