I love editorial shoots. Prep can sometimes involve days, weeks, even months of meetings, mood boards, prop searching and OCD lists. It all becomes worth it when you see your ideas take shape in real life on shoot days. Together with the photographer, I'm kept on my toes all day, constantly solving problems about how to work with wonky props/creased sheets/nervous location owners etc etc etc. I totally love it! (Once I had to work around not moving the floor dust at a location, as requested by the client... but that's another story).
I recently worked as the stylist on issue two of Warehouse Home. Editor, Sophie Bush, started the magazine after moving into a warehouse apartment herself, seeing a gap in the market for warehouse living interiors inspiration. Ex Conde Nast, Sophie knows what's she's doing and the newspaper is packed with eye candy for all, whether you live in a loft apartment or not. Issue 2 was launched a couple of weeks ago, and luckily you can also read it online.
The shots include a summer dining scene, a monochrome pop bedroom, urban jungle love, and 2 lighting features. We managed to cram the whole shoot into 2 days, which was pretty intense. Here's some behind the scenes shots from the shoot...
And ta-da- here's some of the finished shots!
