Most of my commercial photography involves conferences and events, so it is great to work on a commission that presents a different challenge. Apparel and fashion photography is an area that requires a high attention to detail, management of colour balancing across a range of images and the ability to successfully get the best out of a team of live models.
Leeds based agency, Creative Emporium booked me to help client Under Armour, create some high-end photography for their branded sports clothing.
They required dynamic images of people wearing their items, while undertaking sport in a realistic setting. Creative Emporium already partnered Liverpool John Moores University, provding branded clothing for a range of sports teams. So it made perfect sense to plan a series of locations using their excellent on-campus sports science facilities and labs. We had 6 models and four locations over the course of a day, so it was fairly intensive day shooting !
The model released images were used across various media. Below are some screen grabs from their branding website.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need a commercial photographer for your project. I have a mobile studio set up I can bring to you, if you require apparel photography on plain backgrounds, rather than out on location. Give me call to discuss your requirements.

"As a new business, it was very important to me to get the right publicity photographs for my marketing materials. When I met David, he listened carefully to what I was trying to achieve with my brand, and then produced fabulous photographs that were exactly what I needed. He was extremely professional throughout but also nice and friendly. Myself and my clients found it easy to relax with him, which was essential to create the right vibe for the shoot. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
