Working with Georgia Lloyd photography

As a follow up to the previous post I did regarding working with Georgia Lloyd photography, I wanted to do another one as we now have the photos and are really happy with them.

We had a great morning taking loads of shots mainly of me in the workshop (and quite a few without me thankfully). Georgia then went away to pick and edit them. She then supplied us with a very large number to use for ourselves. Because we had a good variety of shots it allows us to use them for all different contexts. I don’t feel like we will run out of different shots to use.

So thanks again to George Lloyd photography for her skill and enthusiasm and for providing us with so many amazing shots to use. I have and will enjoy working with Georgia Lloyd Photography

Please go to her website or follow her on Instagram or to our for more shots. I am always happy to recommend her.

Really happy to have new lamp shade colours and shapes.

Really happy to have new lamp shade colours and shapes.

We are really happy to have some new shade colours available as well as an overall new shade design. To add more options we have had a new shade shape made for our standard lamp. As with the current shade it is large but this one has a slight taper to it. The name for this shape/design is a French Drum and we feel it fit with our own designs very well indeed. We have also added to our colour range adding a new Yellow on linen with gold lining and a completely new colour of Aqua Blue with a copper lining which are both available in any of our shades. They have proved very popular. We will continue to introduce new colours as we seek to be ahead of the colour trends. Thanks to Jack Neville for the excellent shots

Georgia Lloyd Photography

Thank you to Georgia – Georgia Lloyd Photography – for the photo session yesterday.
For a while now we have realised that, although we have some great shots of our product, we have been lacking shots of the process. We realised that we needed some professional shots of the workshop and me at work. We know that the appeal of the products is not just what it looks like but also the story behind it and how it is made. Obviously we are big on ‘made in the UK’, ‘Made locally’ and ‘sourcing our materials in an ethical way’ but we are not getting across the handmade side of the product and the ‘lovingly made’ approach. https://marklowe.co.uk/about/

Georgia was brilliant. We worked well together as I had made a list of the shots needed and she was also able to add her skill and knowledge to the style of shots taken. She took over 400 shots in total and will go away and edit these down to a manageable amount. She will also work on photoshop to edit the chosen one’s. So in the end we will have a really good set of photos we can use on the website and for all sorts of other promotional work.

Thanks again Georgia. We can’t wait to see the results.

The new photos

All the new photos are complete. After the shoot day, James Gardiner spent some time in post production giving them a final sprinkle of magic dust.

We are very happy with them and feel they have already really enhanced the look of the website. We really thought it was very important for the people viewing the website to see our products at their very best. These new images certainly do done that. The customer can now, not only view the lamps in a beautiful ul environment but are also able to see the sort of detail we were hitherto unable to deliver.

Thanks again also to Jonathan Casciani - Joff at lanebypost.com for all his help and Primary - http://www.weareprimary.org/

Enjoy the photographs

Photo shoot

Mark Lowe Lighting Photo Shoot behind the scenes

We had a busy weekend last weekend doing our first full and professional photo shoot. We had booked James Gardiner (http://jamesgardiner.co.uk) who I had met before and does a lot of work for Lane (https://www.lanebypost.com) based at the Primary in Nottingham.

I popped over on Friday afternoon to get some of the setting up done and then Saturday was a full on 10 hours pretty much non-stop. We had made a plan and managed to get everything done. We did loads of combinations on a white background and and then moved onto the ‘lifestyle’ shots. We did 4 different ‘styles’ for the different lamps.

We’re really looking forward to seeing the final shots. Watch this space……
