Spring/summer 2020 may seem a long way off, but here at DuoBoots we have been getting ready for the warmer months by shooting the imagery for our new collection.
Our in-house designers have worked tirelessly to create a collection you are sure to love not only for next summer, but for many in years to come. It is then the task of our Marketing Team to bring the boots to life through imagery. So, without further ado, let’s take a look behind the scenes at our photoshoot for…
Heading into a studio: The Location
Shooting spring and summer boots and shoes in the depths of winter is not ideal, so we headed into a studio a short drive from our Head Office to bring the collection to life. This allowed us to experiment more with props and accessories, whilst staying warm and dry! These added extras have given the imagery a luxe and elevated feel (we hope you agree!) as our lifestyle imagery now involves new and exciting elements including bold colour backgrounds. What’s more, we were able to include some four-legged friends (keep an eye out for fluffy Mabel and happy Peppa!).
Collaborating with others: The Team
Along with the new location came a new team of people for us at DuoBoots to work alongside. Our photographer Pete and his assistant George have great experience of studio photography, meaning we were not at all limited by staying inside. Our model Amy was also new to the team. She is local to Bath and has updated our lifestyle imagery to be fun as well as sophisticated.
A make-up artist and stylist are of course necessities. Isabel While is a fully qualified make-up artist and hair stylist who specialises in TV advertising and editorial photography and she brought our natural and elegant vision to life with ease.
Natasha Musson (AKA The Secret Stylist) is a personal stylist who started her career with the BBC. Natasha works with a whole host of different women and specialises in creating a wardrobe tailored to an individual’s lifestyle. You can expect wearable, yet fashion forward looks featured in the imagery for this collection, which are sure to inspire your spring and summer wardrobe, and have you excited for the season ahead.
Showcasing new designs: The Boots
When you work at DuoBoots HQ you have the privilege of seeing the process of producing new boots, from the very start when they are being designed, to the finished product as they arrive in our warehouse. Thus, they are a labour of love and something the entire team are extremely passionate about.
Gathering images of new boots which have not yet been seen is both exciting and nerve wracking, as you long for everyone to see them in the best light and love them as much as you do. On location, you will find the DuoBoots team constantly polishing and brushing the suede of boots as well as analysing the images as they come through, to make sure the boots look their best.
The collection is one of our most varied yet in terms of colour, style and material, you are sure to love it and find a style (or several) to suit you!
