Ladybird Books for Grown-Ups

Photographing the new range of Ladybird Books for Grown-Ups

I got a call from Hattie at Penguin Books to ask if I’d come along to their London offices on the Strand to photograph the new range of Ladybird Books for Grown-Ups.  I’d heard about the impending release of these books. To have the opportunity to do the promo photography for them made me do a little wee wee dance.

We set up at Penguin Books with a plethora of props and interesting objects carefully collected by Hattie and her team. We smeared ketchup, splashed tea, squished bacon sandwiches and sprinkled love hearts.  The result was a series of cheeky images that made us chuckle.

It’s not often that I photograph products that cause me to spontaneously burst into fits of laughter.  Or lols.  If I start to say or use ‘lols’ without sarcasm I will deserve to receive The Mid-Life Crisis as a gift.  These books are very clever.  There is a book to suit either someone you know or indeed yourself.  I think I can relate to pretty much all of them in one way or another.  Apart from The Hangover.  I try not to have those any more due to a complete inability to survive them whilst retaining satisfactory parenting skills.

I am a huge fan of Ladybird Books and I still have my original collection.  They are real life treasures.  The new range is nothing short of hilarious.  They will become new treasures, cunning gifts and a great way to celebrate Ladybird’s 100th birthday.

Commercial Photographer Buckinghamshire – Premises, Staff and Product Images

Beautiful products, stunning surroundings, lovely business lady…perfect working conditions!

What a lovely thing to be able to say.  I’m a Commercial Photographer Buckinghamshire.  Never have I photographed a location that smelled so good.  The Littlecote Soap Co. is a gorgeous local business headed up by the captivating, vivacious and wonderfully creative Elaine Stavert.  Elaine has found success by mixing potions, playing with aromas and combining natural ingredients to create a divine collection of soaps and toiletries.  All of the organic products are made and sold at their little farm shop in Dunton, Buckinghamshire.  Customers delight in browsing for gifts and treats, the very experience of walking into the shop full of beautiful aromas is worth the visit alone.  There is a large selection of different ranges, each with it’s own signature scent.  The most popular range is Gin & Tonic and my particular fave is White Wine and Fig – scrumptious!  The products are also available to purchase via their website www.littlecotesoap.co.uk.  If you can get to the shop, go!  It’s just delicious and full of great gift ideas….don’t forget to treat yourself too.
