Smiggle loves the camera!

Smiggle loves the camera! 

Last week some of the Smiggle team at HQ joined forces to put together a desktop photoshoot. We thought you guys might like a small sneak peek at what went into it! We split the big task into three main areas and well … just got snappy!

The hunter:

Olivia our Marketing Coordinator has the fun job of going to the stores and choosing all the stock for the shoot. Like a kid in a candy store she often wants to take one of everything. The result was piles and piles of stock at the office and lots and lots of trips between the van and the studio.

The stylist:

Once Olivia has picked all the stock it’s Chantelle’s job to work out what products are going to look the best. Playing with all of them for hours, it’s her keen eye and visual merchandising skills that allow her to turn a boring white desk into a colourful wonderland (well we think so anyway!).

The photographer:

After the desks have been Smiggled up by Chantelle, the photographer and Tony our Creative Director, team up to ‘capture the magic’. They discuss what the images will be used for (e.g banners, online, etc.) and what angles the stock needs to be shot at so everything looks its best. Keeping in mind that you never fully look your best without a smile   

The harsh reality:

Although this photo shoot was a lotta fun, there were some bumps along the way and we wouldn’t want to sugarcoat it in purple glitter!

Whilst in transit, the hunter got caught in one of Melbourne’s unseasonable downpours. This led her to make quite a spectacle when she slipped head over heels, between the van and the studio. She returned to the office dipping wet. Lucky for her though, we just had the new Smiggle mugs arrive, so whilst she dryed off, we cheered her up with a hot drink!

Sadly Olivia wasn’t the only one to come back in a dishevelled state. Daddy, one of our beloved money boxes lost his head at the shoot after someone (who shall remain nameless) dropped him… 

Keep your eyes out for more of these pics, coming to a store near you soon!
