EDITORIAL AND COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY
by Adam de-Sainte-Croix

Three Featured Case Studies

Editorial for The Terrace Hairdressing for men,
Southsea, Hampshire.


I introduced The Terrace to ETC Magazine and made their advertisements. With this relationship in place we were soon provided with Editorial placement.

The Terrace wanted to promote their new shaving services in the editorial so I booked in London based Scottish Model, Michael James Porter, for a hair styling and luxury shave day. I asked The Terrace to go about their business as usual and set up lighting in the salon to produce monochrome images with impact. Since the salon was open other customers enjoyed the experience of watching us work as they had their hair cut!
I have regularly produced photography for The Terrace since 2013, the year they were established. Since then the Terrace has grown to two salons and now a Pro Barber Academy too. All are thriving businesses which I am proud to have been called back to photograph for marketing and media many times.

Advertisements for Rachel George shoe and accessory boutique,
Chichester, West Sussex.


We originally discussed the idea of bringing their marketing back to their show-off their product in a simple yet stylish and elegant manner. I created photographs of key products  and did the graphic design to produce their advertisements. I also laised directly with the magazine for them to make it an easy service. We ventured on from the simplistic styled advertisements towards modelled lifestyle shoots putting the idea in the customers mind for the right seasons. I have been producing Rachel Georges photography, graphic design and advertisements since April 2014.
Front cover and lead feature for Dee's Sweet Surprises, bespoke cake maker,
Portsmouth, Hampshire.


Dee (Diane Woolmer) was referred to me to photograph her award winning icing designs and a particular cake she had made for a submission to an American cake magazine. Using studio lighting I produced Dee's cake photography with impact that won her not just a full feature in the magazine but also the front cover. Fortunately as well as an overall shot of the cake I had used photography to show-off all the intricate detail Dee puts into her cakes. We also created portraits of Dee which were then included in the feature article about her business and her prized cake and icing skills.
Cake Central is the worlds largest cake decorating and icing magazine.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
First we discuss you, your business and find the area you want to focus on. Then I get to work creating the photography to show off your company image be it product, people or premises. Just drop me a line by email or give me a call. I'd be happy to discuss the amazing marketing ideas we can produce. It will be great to catch up with you and learn more about you and your business so a cuppa is always a good idea. I am based in Hampshire but travel all over. I have most recently produced photography for Editorial in Portsmouth, Chichester, London and Ipswich.
