Still Life Fashion Accessories Luxury Brands

With Christmas well and truly on the way, this is the perfect week to share images taken for the Bentalls Shopping Centre in London Kingston-upon-Thames.  This well-known department store is full of luxury products and brands, so a great place to get any last minute gifts! The brief was to create still life photography that represented the autumn & winter seasons, but without any of the cliches. Assisted by my still life stylist, Sophie Sturridge, we created a modern, simple and elegant style, reflected in the choice of products and autumnal and wintry colours and textures. Check out a few of shots below.

The first image above was created for the home & lifestyle selection and has a classic sill life feel to it. The neutral background and surfaces on their own would appear quite cold, however, the addition of soft textures along with soft lighting adds a some warmth and gives it a premium look.

This next image has more of an autumnal feel with pops of beautiful colour and textures you'd often associate with Autumn.  The styling idea behind this was to give the products some character.  The overall effect is much warmer in comparison to the first image. I particularly love the textured, weathered background we used which has a great patina that matches the style of the shot.

The mens collection above, like the rest in the series, was shot in a modern and contemporary style, using muted colours.  The final image was used as both a standalone and part of a set for the website.

The final shot below has a slightly different look to the others as it was purely used to promote this years' Christmas collection for kids, so has a more wintry feel to it.
