Here in the studio, the still life table is often bursting to capacity with drink related products. One of my favourite clients is Boutinot who are one of the leading UK based distributors of quality wines. A unique advantage for them is that they grow their own grapes and produce their own award winning wines.
Most of my work for them is to photograph their beautifully designed wine bottles in the studio. So, it was a real pleasure to be asked to visit some of Boutinot’s vineyards to creatively photograph the harvest and production of their wines for their web and marketing. This was also a great opportunity to visually explore the stunning landscape and learn about wine production.
The images to follow share my story of capturing the production from vine to bottle for this proactive company. I have since been to the Rhone several times and I plan to explore their Spanish vineyards later this year.
The marketing team at Boutinot gave me a very loose brief to allow me creative freedom to do what I do best. And, thankfully they loved everything!
