Ever wanted to know what happens behind the scenes at photoshoots? Get all the insider info on our Spring/Summer 19 Campaign…
One of the most exciting yet demanding days in the Honor Gold calendar is shoot day! As the day has arrived to shoot our Spring Summer 19 Campaign, the directors have been busy prepping the team to ensure the day runs smoothly. Here at the Honor Gold HQ in Birmingham, the studio is a flurry of people who are busy talking through camera angles, background layout and experimenting with the lighting.
Over at the makeup table, an array of foundation bottles, beautifully toned powders and creamy lip colours are laid out ready for beauty guru Georgia Round to artistically place on model Maria’s face. Inspired by Charlotte Tilbury, the glam squad get to work with makeup and hair. Meanwhile, the team have set up equipment and have worked to magically transform the Honor Gold showroom into a photographer’s dream studio backdrop.
Ready to go!
Flashes of light indicate shot after shot being taken, the team discuss lighting and layout, slightly tweaking anything in between outfit changes to make sure each image presents the desired look. Our photographer Jay Jessop and videographer Stephen Kailey work in turn to get the footage needed for every look, showcasing how they creatively pull together shoots.
As the hours pass by, we stop for a healthy lunch and talk over the success of this morning’s shots. Next stop is Opheem, a restaurant based in the heart of Birmingham’s city centre, specialising in Indian cuisine for a fine dining experience. Newly refurbished, Opheem is furnished with luxurious furniture whilst spot lighting glows from ceiling to floor and bounces off the smoky grey walls. Can you think of a dreamier background? Going through the motions, everything is set up and the team speed through outfit changes. We even manage to weave in some Autumn/Winter 18 pieces, so stay tuned for that – coming very soon!
That’s a wrap!
Looking over the images, the team gush over how amazing it looks. We all have our own style favourites and which backgrounds we love for each piece, everyone is beyond excited for the collection to go live next Spring!
