A few months ago I was lucky enough to be introduced to Rob Hallmark and his luxury Men’s fragrance brand; Gruhme. I was immediately struck by the sophisticated packaging and branding, not to mention that its a home-grown local Birmingham brand with a rapidly growing client base. I wasted no time at all in getting some product into the studio to shoot!I wanted to create some shots with a classic elegance, lots of darkness with simple highlights to distill the brand down to its essence. The bottle and razor as part of the gift set are an exercise in great design and were a joy to photograph. Rob and I were delighted with the results, I can’t wait to see how the images will be integrated with his new marketing collateral this year.
My product photography is something I’ve been steadily building up over the past year. What I really love most about this aspect of commercial photography is it gives me the opportunity to get creative and take time to refine fine detail in lighting and styling. The post-production can be meticulous, with the simpler shots often needing the most consideration taken.
Massive thanks to both Rob and Dale Sampey at The Barber House, Birmingham for the introductions.More of my latest product photography and still life work can be seen.
