Lifestyle Product Photography
For Small Businesses in the North East
A collaboration with Alison Tutcher Milliner fine-hat maker
This selection of lifestyle photographs was produced in collaboration with Alison Tutcher Milliner to showcase some of her recent creations. All the photos were captured in a day. Editing took another day. The selection of edited high-resolution logo-free photos was delivered electronically. The photos came with a license to publish them across an array of media platforms. The license holder is also allowed to exploit the photographs’ high resolution to crop them. For example, the holder has permission to square off portrait and landscape-oriented photos to make them more Instagram-friendly, or to crop to ‘zoom in’ on details or to create banners, and so on.
The lifestyle shoot
Alison commissioned the models and styled them. She also secured two venues for the day: the Ratcheugh Observatory, a local folly, and Eshott Airfield, with access to an early 1930s French Maurane Saulnier parasol-wing monoplane. The models, Helen, Caroline, Julie and Alex were a delight to work with. So were the lovely people at Eshott Airfield. We managed to capture a variety of photos making the best of the props, light, and settings, including a small wood bursting with bluebells. We gave some images a retro feel at capture. With the shots involving the airplane, I accentuated the retro feel in post-production by tweaking their colour palette.
Speaking of the airplane, Alison suggested that creating our own original photos with the plane needn’t stop us from giving a nod’ to Norman Parkinson’s stylish black and white image of a model on an airfield. This made the session even more fun.
Bluebells in a delicate woodland were right on cue beckoned for a different approach to colour
A gentle black and white palette and an equally gentle colour palette

A lifestyle session can also lend itself to capturing details
Lifestyle photography doesn’t have to limit itself to a unique mood.
It’s always possible to play on a subdued black and white palette
Your photos are delivered without my logo but it’s always possible for me to add yours.
