Photo shoots like this don’t come along very often – this is the sort of work that reminds me why I love photography so much.

A few week backs I spent 8 hours at Ingles & Co’s Hawthorn antiques warehouse shooting stock photography for their upcoming website.

Somehow we managed to cram portrait photography, studio product photography, shop arrangement shots and location shots into a single day.  It was exhausting work – but just check out the results.

Ingles & Co is a treasure trove of beautiful antique products. We shot hundreds of objects, and doing justice to each was an ongoing photographic challenge under tight space restrictions.

By shooting the products on site in a mobile studio, we were able to avoid moving the antiques – a task that would have been very time consuming and logistically challenging.

We are still busy at work finalising their website, which will include a signficant product catalogue and (coming soon) retail shop.

We’ll post more when the site is ready, but for now here’s a sneak preview of a few of the stunning products we shot on the day.
