Shooting Shots for the Shooting Season

Shooting Clothing for the Shooting Season

It is Autumn, and this has been made abundantly clear by the collections that have come through our studio. A shift in trending colours, patterns, and palettes. If we’re being really honest though, we don’t mind, because some of this seasons fashion is just gorgeous.

One of the things we have had quite a lot of recently, is outdoor wear, walking and travel clothes. The kind of things that would look absolutely perfect whilst you aimed your shotgun.

Selvedge

Selvedge has been using our services for a while now, and we really love receiving products from them. Their products range from dolls, to gorgeous scarves and throws. It is really nice to have customers like Selvedge, the products are amazing, and by working closely with them, we are able to give them exactly what they want.

There are many sides to every story and Selvedge is dedicated to finding and nurturing textiles from every angle life. All of us are inundated with textile sensation, from the moment we are taken and wrapped in our first blanket. It is a uniting aspect of all humanity and one that cannot be underrated.

It began as a small collection of textiles and designers. But has over the years grown into a haven of rarified textiles and esoteric treasures. Behind every item – whether a handmade candle or antique table linen is a story worth hearing.

The various nature of the items we needed to shoot for Selvedge was no problem with the machines. The versatility of the upright and horizontal together make what could otherwise have been a difficult and painful process quicker, and easier.

Royal Academy

The Royal Academy have been using our services for a while now. They need product shots for online store. Their shop has a range of giftware; jewellery, scarves, calendars and more. They also have a range of art catalogues and prints that need digitising. However, this poses a unique problem. Getting a high enough quality image of these can be difficult. Whilst the product itself is simple, the prints, can be large, the catalogues awkward.

The Royal Academy of Arts has a unique position in being an independent, privately funded institution led by eminent artists and architects whose purpose is to promote the creation, enjoyment and appreciation of the visual arts through exhibitions, education and debate.

They have an extensive range of high-quality products from top designers and Royal Academicians. Often, but not exclusively inspired by the Royal Academy’s exhibitions, these items have been specially selected by the award-winning RA Merchandise team.

It is important that the digital representation resembles the actuality as closely as possible, meaning the image quality has to be very good.

The range of product, the required styling, along with adjusting lighting, and followed by extensive post-production would make this process long, and expensive with a traditional photography studio.

However, our machines can do it all. Our flatbed machine is especially excellent at digitising prints and fine artwork. At 111″ long and 85″ wide it is big enough to shoot all but the largest pieces, rendering a perfect cut out PNG every time in under 1 minute. Easy, time and cost efficient.

So Cosy – the softest wool blankets

As the name suggests So Cosy is about creating beautiful, luxurious, cosy wool products. It started out with blankets and they now have a range of products including throws, rugs, scarves and cushions.

They sent in a selection of blankets to be shot, and we can verify they are soft. Very soft, quite cuddly, we had to restrain ourselves from fondling them unnecessarily.

What makes these products so fabulous, so decadently luxuriously soft, is the wool. The blankets is has been said are ‘like being cuddled’. They use the finest Alpaca, merino and sheep wool.

 

So Cosy was so named in 2011 when Rimsky (a former fashion designer) and Vilija decided to quit their day jobs and concentrate wholly on their passion and create beautiful products, combining traditional and modern techniques and designs, to complement all interiors.

Why Alpaca?

The alpaca is a charming, gentle animal and its wool has some of the softest, most luxurious fibre found in nature. Alpacas live in a very harsh climate, where temperatures can fluctuate from minus 25 degrees at night to 25 degrees during the day. And so they have evolved this remarkable wool which is hardwearing, versatile and wonderfully soft.

ID Peters return to UShoot Studios

Designed in London, Inspired by Africa.

ID Peters is heavily inspired by the vast and vibrant fabrics and colours of African art, and the diverse traditions and rich culture. They present a contemporary interpretation of African art, both ancient and modern.

Following on from her modelshoot, a month or so ago, ID returned to Ushoot with a new selection of her bags for a product shoot!

The combination of ID’s influences, from traditional African styles, patterns, and colours, along with her love of London fashion and design, lends her range of products a wonderful originality.

A bit more About ID Peters

ID grew up in Africa, and unsurprisingly, became enamoured by the vibrant art and culture that surrounded her. From an early age she was sewing and experimenting with African art, fabrics, clothes and textiles. And she went on to make bridal wear.

In 2003 ID migrated to London, and her passion for fashion was reignited, and she saw an unexplored niche, where she could bring together her love of London with her African heritage.

After several years of study in business and fashion she set up ID Peters in 2007 and embarked on a journey to build a brand that brought together contemporary London and the vibrancy of African art.

Marlow London’s Luxury Accessories

One of the best things about working in a photography studio is to see all the fantastic brands and products that come through and to meet the people behind them. This week was no different.

Chloe began designing her ‘This Bag’ collection whilst in her final year of University and so Marlow London was born in 2016. With experience working such brands as Burberry, Alice Temple and MatcheFashion.com Chloe knew exactly where she wanted her rand to sit in the maretplace.

She came into the studio on Monday to shoot of selection of her accessories, bags and scarves. Her bags combine conceptual art with high end luxury fashion, the idea is to challenge consumer’s perception of luxury.

She used both machines and got on really well with them flying through the shoot. And noting how it cut out the frills on her scarves with an element of wonder and relief that she wouldn’t have to do that herself in photoshop. Most of all, having full control over the shoot and post-production is, for a young brand that’s still establishing itself, immensely useful, allowing them to control the quality and styling of the imagery so that it is appropriate for the brands future. In addition, using our UShoot service, it works out much cheaper and much quicker than traditional photography, because you can walk out with your images that same day.

Selvedge recently sent in a number of really excellent items for us to shoot. Skirts, cushions, blankets. A range of products that display the variety of their textile based collections.

There are many sides to every story and Selvedge is dedicated to finding and nurturing textiles from every angle life. All of us are inundated with textile sensation, from the moment we are taken and wrapped in our first blanket. It is a uniting aspect of all humanity and one that cannot be underrated.
