Sussex model photoshoot for a stylish sportswear range

Sussex model photoshoot at our Brighton studio

Take a look at this Sussex model photoshoot blog post to find out about a project we worked on this month. One of our clients approached us about photographing a new range of sportswear clothing for their company. This collection is all about comfort and style, it’s really important for them that it feels as good as it looks. The fabric these garments are made from is Micromodal, a soft material that has a very fine knit creating a silky feel. Before the photoshoot we received the brief with a shot list, the type of lighting required and some reference images. This is really useful for us because then we know how to set up the studio and save time when our client arrive which means taking more photos for them! Check out this exciting location shoot we worked on last Summer

Why a white background?

Many clients go for the white background option, also known as pack-shots, when having their products photographed. This is for lots of reasons for example, it’s a clear and concise way of presenting your products with no distractions for viewers to get drawn to. It looks consistent and neat when up on a website, plus there’s scope for comping together multiple images and text for social media. Having products photographed against a pure white background is also what many magazines and publications ask for if they want to feature them, this is so that text can go alongside the images easily or they can be grouped together with other photos.

UK location photoshoot with cycle brand

UK location photoshoot for a prestigious cycle brand

Capture Fatory’s head photographer Rory heads out for a UK location photoshoot to capture some bikes in action. Here are a few shots from the shoot with one of our regular clients. Last summer we shot their promo video which they were very happy with and are using it across the web. You can see it on our blog post here. When were working on their video, our team was not only capturing footage for the video but also taking stills so that they could be used as well. Capture Factory used their 4K drone which caught some amazing aerial and panoramic shots, something that really adds a whole other perspective to a video or photography. Take a look at our Drone page to find out more!

Capturing the bikes in action

This shoot was to capture the bikes in-situ along with heading to cycle brand’s HQ where Rory photographed people using their equipment. Location shoots are great for you to take your products out of the studio and help your customers imagine using them for themselves. It adds variety to a business’ aesthetic and can make it really come to life. Model shoots, location and lifestyle photography is something we do a lot of at Capture Factory, if you’re looking to have some new photography or a video made then give us a call and have a chat with one of our friendly team members. We’d love to hear your ideas!

Sussex 360 product photography for local gin supplier

Sussex 360 product photography for local artisan gin

Take a look at our Sussex 360 product photography, recently we were approached by a local gin supplier to provide them with a video and imagery for their artisan gin bottle. This product was launched in 2016, and is unique to other gin suppliers because of the way in which the gin is processed.  They make use of the unused grape juice produced by the grape harvest in Sussex. Using this by-product reduces waste and is environmentally friendly. Additional flavours that are infused in this grape-based spirit include the likes of bitter orange, coriander, juniper and many more delicious ingredients.

 

Check out our 360 Photography page here to find out more

Carefully crafted packaging

The bottle itself has been carefully designed and crafted teaming up with designers & illustrators to help create the packaging. They have used the elegant shape of a burgundy style wine bottle to echo the fact it’s a grape-based spirit, and it has been screen printed with a precious metal ink along with a white ceramic ink. There are lots of details to this beautiful bottle such as the illustration of vine leaves climbing up the bottle, the copper sheen of the logo and the fox design.

Capturing the details

Our brief was to photograph each bottle and their custom made brooch as they provide a gift version of the gin, miniature bottles and the fox logo as a brooch. We were also asked to create a 360 video showing the bottle turning around so you can see every angle and detail. These videos are a great way for you to really show off your amazing products.

Shooting a bike & cycle wear location video in Surrey

Capture Factory shoot a bike & cycle wear location video

Earlier this year we worked on a bike & cycle wear location video for one of a prestigious cycle company. The location couldn’t be more perfect as it was filmed around Boxhill and the Surrey Hills which is an iconic cycle route and also part of the Olympics.

bike & cycle wear location video, group of cyclists riding along a country lane

At the crack of dawn the car was packed with all of our photography, video and Drone equipment and our specialists made their way to the beautiful countryside in Surrey. We were hired as a multi media team to shoot their promotional material including a short video along with taking still images for use online, print & social media. Their new range of cycle wear and bicycles were being used by professional models and cyclists, so they were having as much fun as us!

Combine photography & video on the same shoot

We brought our 4K drone which our head photographer, Rory, is CAA approved to use for commercial purposes. This is a fantastic piece of equipment that’s non-obtrusive and meant we were able to capture aerial and panoramic shots. We were lucky with the picturesque summers day and the lighting was perfect, from sunrise to sunset we were shooting & filming all day across various routes. Take a look at our Drone Photography & Video page

Fashion catwalk videos for online shopping

Capture Factory shoot a range of fashion catwalk videos

Online shopping now has a whole new experience with fashion catwalk videos. ASOS were the first leading retailers to start this trend, and since it’s been a hit for customers, this is because it shows off the garment in a whole new way. For example you can see the way the fabric flows while the model is walking, you can see the length of the clothing, and how it might fit your body shape. Last month we shot a collection of catwalk videos alongside model photography and invisible mannequin

Photography & video in one

Our client had a specific backdrop in mind, so we helped source this and it worked perfectly. It added some more character to the videos without distracting from the clothing. We had two set ups in the studio, one for taking the catwalk videos and then when this was finished we’d change the lighting and photograph the model of still photography. We had already taken their invisible mannequin and accessory shots, so these were being edited while the shoot was happening by our team of retouchers.

Some light re-touching then they’re ready to send

After the shoot, some light retouching was involved just to simply remove marks on the floor, soften the skin slightly and any noticeable creases in the garments were removed, then everything was sent off to our client web-ready for them to upload and share straight away. Capture Factory has a 72 hour turn around so there’s no waiting, and if you need your photos sooner, there’s the Capture Priority which is a 24 hour turn around!

Christmas lifestyle photography at Capture Factory

Capture Factory shoot Christmas lifestyle photography

Christmas lifestyle photography is something Capture Factory love doing! It’s usually done quite ahead of the festive season so that our clients have the photos all ready to add to their website before the height of the shopping season. These photos were taken for one of our favourite clients that design personalised gifts such as homewares and baby clothes. We look forward to when they come to the studio because there are so many lovely things to photograph and we can get creative with them.

Creative and fun

Lifestyle shoots are usually overseen by our clients, this is so they can make sure the styling is how they envision. Often our clients will bring along a selection of props they feel will be suitable for the shoot, sometimes we are asked to source the props for them by our in-house stylist. This can be anything from finding the perfect paper or foliage and going into town to collect them, to scouting out the best stone backdrops to be used for a more natural look perhaps with jewellery for example.

Why lifestyle photography

Lifestyle photography is kind of in the name, it’s styling the products to help people imagine the objects in their life. So you might put the items into context like the above image which has kitchen aprons surrounded by tasty ingredients. Or the photo below where a cosy scene has been created to give the feel of a warm Christmas fireplace with a personalised sack of presents waiting to be opened by Olivia!
