I was very happy to be asked by Margeret from the British Craft Trade Fair to produce some advertising images for featuring this years exhibitors. All the furniture used in the shoot is furniture I have in the prop store so can be used in any shoot. Margeret hand picked the work to send over to me, and gave me a brief to produce fresh, spring like imagery. As they was quite a lot of products to fit in the various shots, not many props were used.
Margeret says “Magazine editors regularly inform us that the single most important thing a company can do to gain editorial coverage is invest in photography. In such a visual industry – and especially in the age of Instagram – it make sense to put your best face forward and allow your beautiful products to truly shine in 2D as much as they do in their real life glory.
“I would really recommend Richard he has photographed many of our exhibitors BCTF work and they have all been delighted with the results. Always friendly and happy to achieve your goals, he did some great lifestyle photos for us which proved to be invaluable for the advertising we did for BCTF 2019. Thanks Richard.” Margeret, BCTF
