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.

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!

Lights, Camera, Action! – check out our video service

Our new video service

We already had the lights and the cameras. Now we’ve got the action – appearing as our new video service!

After a few years of providing the photography service, we are proud to announce a period of expansion. We’re aware of the trends in fashion retail and ensure that we are head and shoulders above our competitors.

New trend

It has become increasingly apparent that many companies are using videos to show their garments in their full glory. Motion allows potential customers to see how clothes fall and flow. They present the tailoring and weight of the fabric in a way that still images can hardly convey.

Therefore, we have branched out into video work to offer our clients another avenue to exhibit their incredible products.

We’ve brought our comprehensive mastery of lighting and experience in photographing to another level. This was only possible with the help of our talented new recruit, filmmaker Adam Hutchison.
With a wealth of experience independently producing bespoke video and music for commercial projects, Adam’s filming and editing results in something very special, which our clients are reaping the benefits from.

Recent video shoot

We’ve produced some simple yet effective catwalk style video shoots recently to compliment the still images our clients value as an excellent marketing tool. The added element of film brings our clients’ websites and online stores to life, and offers the viewer a more dynamic shopping experience.

By all accounts, it has boosted sales, and given the garments our clients produce another dimension.

As well as showing the garments’ full potential, the addition of video has allowed our clients to to offer a glimpse into the unseen areas of our well established photo shoots for blogs and social media.

This has been incredibly well received and excites potential customers!

We’re proud to be offering this new service and we love having the facility to expand our creative output and keep our clients excited by working with us!
Drop us a line if you think a video could enhance your product’s selling potential! or 01273 958 464
