Two weeks ago I photographed the brand new jewellery collection for Chezbec. It was quite a day: 3 models, a stately home, make up artists, hair stylists, lights, camera and plenty of action. In fact it was such a cool day I thought that you might like to see it. So I got the very talented Aidan Myatt to shoot a behind the scenes video. (Yes, the Aidan who did the amazing Trash the Dress video for me).

So here we go – a whole day’s shooting compressed into 8 minutes.  Complete with behind the scenes footage, interviews, technical information and a bald bloke wandering round with a Hasselblad.  What more could you want?

Actually if you think of anything then let me know in the comments.  These videos take a huge effort but are a lot of fun.  So if you’d like to see more then let me know.

    I like this Jonathan.
    This video has a cool professional feel about it. It is interesting for me as a photography enthusiast. I listened to every word and played it several times, picking up new things every time.
    Pictures were amazing!

    Great shoot Jonathan and lovely models & setting. How did the Lencarta safari stand up outdoors compared to the Bron etc.

    Thanks Fergus.

    I’ll be doing a full review of the Safari soon ;)

    However, here’s the short version vs Brons:

    cons: not as powerful. Bron is 2X as powerful and I can run 2 heads at full power giving 2 stops more than Safari
    Brons are more controllable – 5 stop range in 0.1 stop steps – Safari is 4 stops stepless.

    pros: a LOT lighter, a LOT more flashes (I’ve had over 300 from the pack and not exhausted it – Lencarta say over 1,000 – Bron is about 130 at same output)
    Easier to fit modifiers – Bron uses a £60 friction fir adapter, Safari has S-type built in
    A LOT cheaper (maybe 1/4 the price)
    For most purposes I prefer the Safari. Not tried the Quadras but I expect that apart form the built in skyport I’d find the Safari superior.

    A great video and insight into the days shoot. Very interesting with enough information to give a photographer some ideas of what to do on a similar shoot, without being too overly technical. The audio was much better than the first one.

    In a word Professional.

    A brilliant piece of work. Expertly filmed and edited with well-presented and interesting subject matter. Clearly a lot of effort went into this and it really shows. Well done to you and your team Jonathan.

    I’d love to see you in action in a wedding-like setting.

    All the best,

    David

    This is a smashing insight into a product/ fashion shoot.
    The story boarding is spot on as is the commentary and pictures. A real eye opener to the ‘snapper’ or would be pro.

    Thanks for sharing the occasion and providing us with a great tutorial.
