Fashion Photographers in Devon & Cornwall: Product and Promotional Photography, Maunsel House, Somerset
Posted on March 8, 2013
This article is about a fashion photography photo-shoot and may appeal to anyone looking for fashion photographers in Devon, Cornwall or further afield.
Fashion Photo-shoot for Online Fashion Retailer
Product and Promotional Photography
This fashion photo-shoot was commissioned by QPID Showgirl, who are an established online retailer of evening dresses, bridesmaid dresses, ball gowns and prom dresses.
QPID already had product images for their own web-site which had been captured using mannequins with a white background. To widen their distribution network QPID needed alternative images to meet the submission requirements set by other web-sites such as ASOS marketplace. The requirements stipulated that the images had to be shot on a human model outside of a studio environment, with daylight lighting and without studio flash. Twenty product images were required from the shoot by QPID.
It was also agreed that we would make use of the time and location to create a small set of creative images that could be used by QPID for brand promotion on their web-site and in advertising materials. With these images we had no style or technique restrictions, and we were able to create artistic and visually engaging images. These images could also be suitable for editorial use if QPID were to be featured in a magazine or newspaper.
A model for the shoot had already been cast by the client, but a location still needed to be found. The shoot date was set for a very cold and dark day in February, which meant that outdoor locations would not be practicable. I investigated indoor locations that would provide a fitting backdrop to the style of clothing, and suggested Maunsel House in Somerset, which was equidistant between all the parties involved. Maunsel House is a 13th century Manor House full of character and beauty, and also a magnificent wedding venue.
Below are a few examples of the product style images from the shoot to be used on ASOS Marketplace:
