DOCK OF THE BAY
Last month I had the pleasure of shooting for local clothing company Dock of the Bay. Dock of the Bay wanted my help photographing their clothing for their Autumn/Winter campaign, and I was happy to be involved! Their aesthetic is very much to do with the countryside and the outdoors, as it is specifically an outdoor leisurewear brand. Therefore, I took the shoot to the scenic woodland areas surrounding Honley and it couldn't have offered a better environment to shoot their clothing.
Models Beci, Katy, Amelia, Chris and Katie take to the woods for a fun day capturing what Dock of the Bay's clothing is all about. I really wanted the images to embody the lifestyle that Dock of the Bay represents, which is why we wanted some family orientated outdoor pictures of families and couples enjoying walks in the countryside. The weather was glorious on the day of the shoot, which made for some excellent natural light to shoot with.
All the models loved the clothing that was both stylish and comfortable. I enjoyed taking the catalogue style pictures for Dock of the Bay's website, and also managed to get some great candid pictures. One of my favourite shots of the day was of our youngest model, Amelia, playing in the heather field near the woods. We also had our 'dog model' Alfie bounding around on set which made for some engaging shots with our other models too.
It was a fabulous day on set as I love getting out and about to take photos as much as possible. I'm really happy with the images we managed to capture and how they managed to capture the Dock of the Bay brand. The pictures are being used to advertise clothes on Dock of the Bay's website and also on their social media.
