Made Property Photography Biggar
Made Property Photography Biggar. A couple weeks ago I wrote about a shoot I did for Made.com. The shoot involved taking photos of their products in someone’s home rather than just a simple product on a website, which I still think is a brilliant marketing strategy, and the photos would then go on their Made Unboxed page.
I first did a shoot for Made in 2015 and that went really well. I went to a magician’s home and met the wife and their daughter and the whole shoot took around 1.5 hours and I got to see a really lovely property and have a chat with the wife. I really enjoyed it but sadly almost all of Made’s unboxed shoots in the UK seem to be happening in England/London so there’s been very little work up here in Scotland for them. Out of the blue I was contacted by Made just a couple months ago asking if I would be interested in doing another shoot and so I went to Fife and photographed the most gorgeous home. The couple I met had bought a repossession, done it up and built an extension with was made up of a kitchen and sitting area. It was awesome. Lovely.
This time I was sent to Biggar which is a lovely wee town in South Lanarkshire, about 30 miles South West of Edinburgh. When I was living in Birmingham and commuting to Edinburgh for work a few years ago I used to drive through Biggar to get to Edinburgh so I was familiar with how lovely it is and I also shot a wedding at Cormiston Farm (awesome wedding venue) several years ago which is just outside of Biggar.
It took me about one hour to get there from where I live in Edinburgh and the house I visited was absolutely lovely. The couple who bought the property one year ago are both retired and used to live in Manchester. Their property was a work in progress and only the one room, the lounge, had Made products in it but Made like to capture the general surroundings of properties to show potential customers how people live. I photographed the lounge, the kitchen, the master bedroom and a dressing room.
All in all, with quite a lot of chatting, I was there for about 1.5 hours and the house was an absolute joy to photograph. I love seeing how people live differently and each of the three properties I’ve photographed for Made have been completely different to each other.
In fact, every property and even hotel I’ve photographed to date has been so different to the next but that’s what makes my job so interesting, I get to work and meet all kinds of people in all kinds of surroundings.
Here are some of the photos I took at this latest gorgeous property.
Recently I’ve been really busy redesigning my website and will be writing about it in the next week or two. I’ve got quite a few weddings to photograph this July as well so I’ll be updating my blog with all kinds of things in the next few weeks.
