Jan 04, 2022 Drone, video and photography on location for König outdoor luxury kitchens
This is no ordinary BBQ garden. We had the amazing task of videoing and photographing Midland Stone’s bespoke outdoor luxury kitchens in an incredible location.
What was the brief?
König came to us with a rather unique brief. The company build bespoke garden kitchens for affluent clients, and for this reason, this is hard for them to promote- they only ever have products that are build in someone’s home.
One of their clients was happy to have their kitchen used for promotional purposes, so we confirm the brief of producing photography and a video using a drone on location.
To best show off the kitchen, we organised for models of various ages relating to their target market to attend the shoot on the day. We suggested this in order to show the kitchen appliances and functionality, but also to bring the area to life. We wanted a potential customer to see the kitchen being used, and be able to see them selves in the pace/make it desirable to them.
We then went on to plan food and drink props for the day, so that the models could interact with the kitchen realistically. We packed up our kit, which included high-spec video cameras, Sony A7 cameras for stills, our drone to capture areal shots, and various lighting equipment.
On the day
We arrived bring and early, and the day was glorious! We had beautiful sunshine all day long. The first portion of the day was assigned to capturing the kitchen empty, to get clean product shots of all the aspects of the kitchen. We flew our drone up on location to get some wide shots, and a variety of angles over the on-site swimming pool that we would be able to get with a hand-held camera.
Our models arrived mid-morning and were prepped for the afternoon of shooting. We had a few different scenarios to play out for both photographs and the video- a family BBQ with a couple and the in-laws, and then a party scenario with young professionals.
We had food styling on location, as well as a 4 person photography team- a director, senior photographer, and a two video camera operators.
Within the day, we produced a variety of promotional videos both long and short, as well as a portfolio of promotional images for our client. See a full video below!
