The client came from a recommendation from a very good friend, and very good model Graham Gardener , a client new to the world of commercial photography who had decided to go with his own design of the ‘tweed style’ jackets with a modern feel, a bold move but a natural one for him.
The Jackets are aimed at the high end market and with the brief ‘make ‘em look good’ … Quite a broad one then … In fairness this was explained before and as mentioned in previous blogs this was not a problem .. Sometimes it’s good to be given free reign, although it does come with it’s pressures , but I can handle it (just) ….
Initially a studio fashion shoot was mentioned but looking at the jackets I suggested this may not do the various styles justice and would look far more interesting going down the location photography route. So obviously on the day down came the rain … Again ..I’m sure it just waits for me to shoot on location.
The base was my studio in Cheshire and I made sure the locations were nearby (just incase the studio shoot became more favourable re the weather) and we ventured out in to, as I’ve said before the ‘fashion’ capital that is …..’Macclesfield’ …. The models i had worked with many times before before so I was confident they would deliver the shots I needed , and look great in the clothes as well … obviously.
The great textures around Macclesfield really complimented the jackets and the client turned stylist for the day was delighted with the finished result and went back to Manchester a ‘happy client’ … Sigh of relief with the ‘make em look good’ brief then….
Looking forward to the next shoot … hint … hint
