Beauty Photography for leading Sunday magazine

How skincare got clean for Stella Magazine

Stella Magazine always come up with unique, creative briefs and we love working with them. The concept this time was 'Clean Beauty' so they asked us to fill plain bottles and jars with white cream and to shoot on a neutral white surface perhaps incorporating plinths. The lighting brief was to create beautiful tones and strong shadow.

Samantha sourced some plinths and we were ready to go, after playing around with heights of bottles and the lighting we were very happy with the result.

The article itself is actually an interesting read by Imelda Burke:

The magazine was published on June 19th and was best read in the sunshine with coffee.

Sunday morning with coffee

There was also a dachshund enjoying a coffee on the cover of the paper which was a nice nod to our very own studio dog Bill Murray.

Social media photography and promotion

The fruitless quest for free beer

In honour of National Beer Day.

Here at Light Project we love a Friday afternoon beer around 4.15 and a bit of Steve Wright's Serious Jockin' (yup, we're not ashamed).

A nice drop of Punk IPA

Like most folks these days we're keen to try the latest craft beers. We ordered ourselves a mixed case of Brewdog beers and suddenly the photo opportunities seemed to flood in. We have a studio dog/PR Manager called Bill Murray. We couldn't resist getting him involved in our social media photography and promotion, hoping to snag some free beer in the process.

Contains bark and bite.

This particular afternoon was a lot of fun and luckily Bill isn't averse to a spot of dressing up. We simply couldn't resist when Elvis Juice was launched.

 

Thank you very much.......

Alas, our efforts were fruitless but we had a lot of fun along the way and drank some tasty brews.
