Creative Product Photography with Penelope Hope
We are, though we might pretend other wise at times, a bunch of creatives at UShoot and do love a bit of creative product photography.
So when Nadia from Penelope Hope called in and enquired if we could get creative with the product photography for her new range of Aprons, we immediately said yes. It wasn’t until later when we’d opened up the box she sent us and had a look at them that we realised just how much fun we were going to have!

About Penelope Hope
Nadia is based in Guernsey, and set up Penelope Hope in 2015 when she realised the market was lacking the kind of home-wear that she wanted. Which is to say a distinct lack of high quality materials with bold, captivating and vibrant patterns and colours.
It is safe to say with her range of luxury cushions, designer fabrics, lampshades and more that Nadia effectively fulfils her desire to inject colour into the home. All the Penelope Hope designs are created by Nadia herself. Using her own original artwork, hand drawn sketches, photography and digital processing techniques.
And they really are incredible.

The Brief & Ideas
The Ideas and focus behind Penelope Hope is all about creating vibrant and dynamic designs on every day
objects. So getting creative with the product photography was almost imperative. Nadia sent over a selection of visuals ideas to guide us, but she wasn’t quite sure herself on what it was she wanted exactly.
So, we set about shooting a selection of images to get her feedback. Using a number of props, Hannah and Sarah went about arranging fruit bowls and cups of tea with abandon. Aiming to create a selection of images that highlighted and accentuated the vibrancy of the tea towels whilst retaining thematic relevance.
A Few Creative Product Photography Results
After a quick discussion amongst ourselves we made a list of items. Then we went scavenging around the building to see what we could find from some of the other offices nearby.
We were pretty fortunate, and surprisingly made a few new friends, collecting a range of items from marble slabs to gold tinted bowls.
Here are a few of our first results to give you a taster.
None of these are final images that are being used but first ideas.
