Ever get one of “those” emails?  As often it came from Nicola at ProposePR.

I have a client who needs some high quality images of their product for press and PR use…

Sure that shouldn’t be a problem.  What’s the product?

A brand new kind of confetti made of only rice…

So small colourful product with random flight path needing magazine quality images.  Piece of cake.

A few days later we had a whole creative team assembled plus a couple of locations.  You can see one of my favourite images above.  We also took advantage of some autumn colour in the churchyard and ended up on a very windy beach.  Pictures will be on the Rice Butterflies site soon.  But I couldn’t resist sharing some of the behind the scenes shots here too.

Lighting tests…

How many people does it take to tie a tie….?

A bit of premature confetti throwing….

Time out for a pasty.

And just how many extra people can you get into a shot?

Note 1: in the first shot you can clearly see we have somebody just out of shot holding the ladder securely

Note 2: yes, that’s me.  And I took the pictures.  I have a second camera firing remotely triggered by the first.

And one last favourite picture on a very windy beach.

Thanks to the crew: Claire, Ben, Ethan and Emily.  Oh and Luke was shooting video too – cant wait!

If you have a bridal business then professional photography will make a huge difference to your advertising collateral and PR material.  And it probably doesn’t cost as much as you think.  Just get in touch.  And don’t worry if you’ve never done this before.  Sheetal from Rice Butterflies hadn’t and we had a crew on the ground with cameras shooting within a week.  She even seemed to enjoy it!
