I took a call from Janet at Verney’s Molton Ice. As the name implies they are makers of outstanding farm made ice cream not far from South Molton. Janet was not sure of the direction she wanted to take on this photographic journey – she just knew that she wanted some images to put on social media to help promote Verney’s Molton Ice. Our first meeting was at Parsonage farm where the business is located. Listening to Janet, it became obvious that she wanted some natural images of the farm, ongoing through the seasons with some product related images in the studio. So we started with a morning at the farm to get a feel for things.
A half day in the studio came next. The studio images were primarily designed for Social Media use. They were not intended as hard sell product images. Janet had bought along some empty packs and props that she liked that were related in some way to the product. From these items and backgrounds that I already had in the studio, we set about grouping the objects together to find a way to produce some interesting and atmospheric images.
