I’m really enjoying working with social enterprise Shetland Soap Company, who believe ‘everyone, regardless of a disability, should have the opportunity to work if they so wish.’ Source https://shetlandsoap.co.uk/pages/faqs
This forward-thinking company boast a beautifully presented retail store on Commercial Street teamed with an elegant website at https://shetlandsoap.co.uk/.
In September they tasked me with photographing their Christmas Collections for use on their website during the festive period.
It was great working with Marketing Manager Catarina experimenting with product arrangement, lighting and props.
As the images were going to be used primarily as web banners, I had to take this into consideration when arranging the products.
It was a really interesting exercise to develop the shoot from initial setup to resultant images above, which show the final cut on the Shetland Soap Company website.
Shetland Soap Company have gained international exposure of their company and products via recent publications in high profile publications.
Readers of my blog will know about their exposure in the September edition of ELLE magazine (link). On the back of this success, the Shetland-based social enterprise have featured in an article by PosAbility Magazine listing a range of quality products from socially conscious businesses.
