Chess London Menswear Photoshoot
For the past 3 days I have been working as Digital Operator on Duncan Nicholls shoot for Chess London Menswear Fashion Shoot at Holborn Studios. Me and Shivvy connected our Mac’s together (as well as Dunc’s Laptop for spreadsheets), so while one of them was receiving files from the Hasselblad, the other one was processing photos into low res JPEG’s for clients to view straight after the shoot, as well as keeping track of item numbers and relating them to each shot. It was an absolutely massive shoot with over 5000 images shot so was a great challenge and put our skills to the test!
Dell Laptop, 2x Macbook Pro’s (all running SSD’s, one with dual HDD mod), Lacie Screen, fully calibrated, lots of external hard drives. PhaseOne CaptureOne Pro 6.3 running. And yes that’s me on the screen…
Shivvy’s Hasselblad / PhaseOne P25, lovely piece of kit, and so much more reliable and faster with tethered shooting than Canon / Nikon.
Models for the shoot were Julian Okines (pictured above) and Moritz Garlich from Nevs Models, both incredibly professional, hard working, friendly and well… Good looking. I don’t think either of them had a “bad angle”. I haven’t even got a good angle!!!
Shot from the makeup room overlooking Holborn Studio 2, a nice big white infinity cove. The guys at Holborn were great, and big recommendation for The Commissary, who have served the most incredible chicken sandwiches I’ve ever tasted, as well as smoked Salmon Salads, Gourmet Burgers and so on.
The guys from Chess London were one of the nicest clients I’ve met, amazing team and thoroughly good time!
The shoot was an absolutely success, incredible images shot, look forward to featuring the finished ones on the blog next time! Chess London launch is coming closer every day, and it was nice to get a sneak peak at their clothing line since I now know what I’m ordering!
