King Cole at Photography Works

King Cole at Photography Works

Our regular client, King Cole, have weekly shoots with us, and with Summer coming up, we thought a few location shoots would be perfect.

King Cole provide knitting wool retailers with hand and machine made yarn, but also have various designers who create knitting patterns.

We love working with King Cole- their models are always so professional, and having created such a great relationship makes the shoots all the more enjoyable.

In the UK, we always need a cardigan/ jumper on hand…even in the summer, for the breezy evenings. With there being numerous designers within King Cole, it makes the work a lot more varied. Different designers, different feel to the images, and we need to ensure we meet each individual brief.

Detail is key

Melody Maison at Photography Works

The French style furniture company, Melody Maison, have become a very dedicated and satisfied client of ours, so  it’s time to shout about them and take a look at some recent images.

Working consistently with clients makes the next project just that little bit easier- we know the clients, they know us, we know what they like and how they like to work. This can also result in a speedier job time…which is always great for any company’s budget.

This 12 year old leading retailer in shabby French chic require full lifestyle shots, plus a number of detail shots, to really emphasise the beautiful detail of the furniture.

Every project is a different range of furniture, but we work with them before the shoot day to create the perfect roomset- subtle colours, contemporary feel, with a hint kitsch.

As soon as we created a brief with our returning client, Veromia, for this particular shoot, we knew we would be shouting from the rooftops about it as a result. 

We have used a similar setup for their range, Irresistible, in the past, and it worked brilliantly. That was a couple of seasons previous, but the new shoot will coincide nicely on their website and other media platforms.

Their ocassionwear/ mother of the bride outfits are so stunning – the photography needs to be just as beautiful. The setting for the shoot is pure class. It was a bit of a tight squeeze but the images came out just as we, and the client, had hoped.

One of our specialist fields in Photography is Bridal couture, with which we have a lot of returning clients and a considerable amount of enjoyment when working on a project. Bridal shoots are made up of class, innovative ideas and stunning images as a result.

We’re very excited about a recent shoot with new client ‘House of Nicholas‘, so we’re shouting about it! The shoot was highly anticipated, as the client wanted to work with us for a while, and it’s safe to say- everyone was happy.

With a lot of their designs made up of sleek lines and modern minimalism, we felt that was a perfect brief to start off with. Not taking away from the dress, there is very little going on in the pictures (typical of Bridal photography- the dress is the star of the show), but we have managed to use some very minimal props bringing everything together.

Matching the subtle detail of the dresses, we’ve used very subtle lighting, and matching the sleek lines, we’ve created abstract lines with the background. Pure class!

Our client is more than happy with the results …they even wrote us a very generous testimonial, and used the photography for their piece in the highly recommended bridal magazine, Attire

Knitwear in Knaresborough

North Yorkshire Location Shoot

Last week, work took us to the beautiful North Yorkshire town of Knaresborough. Location shoots tend to be exciting, but this one was especially lovely…we were at Knaresborough Castle, the sun was shining and the knitwear models were all smiles.

King Cole (4)

This job was for a regular client of ours, King Cole Knitting Patterns (Sue Batley-Kyle), who wanted to vary up their shoots with a location- where better to model knitwear than outdoors?! And the weather was definitely on our side. We managed to use various areas of the castle which gave us a lot to work with- the client was more than happy.

We do have an amazing studio measuring 7,500sqft, but clients have specific requirements which we meet- if they need a location, we arrange the whole thing. If you’d like us to assist in marketing your products with Photography, please get in touch.

One of our recent clients is Komfi Mattresses, a high end UK client, who wanted to represent nothing but British, Innovative and Distinctive style through their marketing photography. 

Safe to say…we think we pulled it out the bag…

KOMFI SLEEP

We were so happy to work with Komfi- the project was so precise, with each mattress having it’s own moodboard and story. With our client being so specific, our work was cut out. As well as our usual styling process, we were also asked to source the perfect beds (which obviously plays a huge part when styling mattresses). We love a challenge!

Working with Komfi and their design consultant Darren Coffey was a pleasure!

Project Nepal- Hats off to everyone involved

Our very own Glen Pearson’s brother, Gary Pearson, was very busy at the back end of last year, and all for an extremely good cause.

Being part of the Huddersfield North Scouts, he assisted in setting up Project Nepal, with 33 others. This trip involved visiting a remote village to rebuild and repair a small village school devastated in the April and May 2015 earthquakes.

32aa8f3adc-DSC_0292_edited1

This breathtaking trip was to the village of Lapcha, 40 miles from Mount Everest, so consisted of thorough planning and a considerable amount of trekking. Therefore, training beforehand was required. Just a snippet of the trip… the 34 participants took a 9 ½ hour jeep ride from Kathmandu and then a steep 5 hour walk from the roadhead to reach the village. The village itself is scattered across steep hillsides at an altitude of 8,800 feet.

920a0790fb-DSC_0341

The existing classrooms were badly damaged in the earthquake and so lessons have been taking place in a temporary structure built in the playground. Before the trip, the village were approaching their 2nd monsoon season in the temporary buildings (below) having already survived 1 monsoon and a cold snowy winter.

9d619c7f5c-DSC_0174

Glen and Gary have always been involved with the Scouts from a young age, so the Scout movement is close to their hearts. Photography Works have donated a considerable amount of money towards the trip, and Gary has donated a considerable amount of time and preparation for the trip- helping to make it possible.

This trip has been gratefully received in Lapcha- they are overwhelmed by the help.

A HUGE well done to everyone involved, from all at Photography Works.

Wallpapering madness..

WALLPAPERING MADNESS..

One of our favourite most recent photoshoots was for Johnstones- they wanted Commercial photographs of wallpaper samples for their 2017 collection!  1752-birchcourt-weallcoverings-124938

So much detail and thought goes into any shoot, but we were impressed with how much thought had gone into their ideas of what they wanted.

img_3216

Their vision was to have simply 5 boards wallpapered that could be standing and some hanging over from the ceiling, to create shadow and depth. Our Photography Works team understood exactly what they wanted to achieve! And boy it looked good!

Happy New Year!!

2016 was a fabulous year for Photography Works, and we’re excited for what 2017 holds.

We cover various of areas of Commercial Photography, but towards the end of 2016 we were approached to simply STYLE for a client. They had seen our work and felt we would be beneficial for their new property development.

_mg_5318 STYLE (noun): A distinctive appearance

With the development based in the heart of MANCHESTER, our stylist wanted to capture the upbeat, trendy, but relaxed personality of the city. The day was challenging and a lot of FUN.

This is a great new venture for us in 2017. Get in touch if any of your projects require a stylist. Check out the VIDEO below.

Bollywood experience at Photography Works

Bollywood Experience for Photography Works

**NEWS FLASH**

We were recently asked to photograph the stunning Vaani Kapoor!!

The highly popular Bollywood actress is currently promoting the new contemporary romantic comedy film ‘Befikre’, and we were asked to photograph her at the nearby Midland Hotel in Bradford, West Yorkshire.

Co-starring Ranveer Singh, the film diverts slightly from the traditional Bollywood singing and dancing, and references drinking and sex. Vaani did mention at the promotional event that she feels the Indian cinema scene is evolving, ‘and people are becoming more lenient towards it’.

fatima-bollywood-128428-1

 As you can imagine, Vaani is a busy lady, so Glen had limited time, and was put to the test. But he nailed it! As always. The shots were perfect and met the brief brilliantly. The beautiful Victorian hotel was a real advantage to the shoot.

We wish Vaani all the luck with the film, and we can’t wait to see it!!
