new year … new studio

On 01 January I moved to a new place  to make a new studio for professional photo and video productions in the heart of Bangkok.  Just 3 minutes walking distance from Sky Train (BTS) Station “Phra Kanong” at Sukhumvit Road. Ideal for all clients with or without cars. If you are coming with car we have plenty of parking spaces here,  and if you are coming with BTS,  which is ideal transportation for the busy streets of Bangkok,  just get off at the BTS Phra Kanong and here you are.                        Saving lots of time!

Industry Photography in Bangkok: cinematic photo shooting in a diamond factory for “WEMPE exquisite timepieces & jewelry”

“WEMPE”  is one of Germany’s oldest family owned luxury companies, and among the largest dealers of fine timepieces and jewelry across Europe. The shooting for WEMPE had taken place in the factory of “Siam Stars Limited” in Bangkok, one of the oldest diamond factories in Thailand stablished 30 years ago. The assignment was to create images to show the precise work of thai women transforming rough diamond stones to of the most exklusive jewelry pieces world wide. All works hand made just with a few basic tools. Astonishing 🙂

Product photography”  in Bangkok: photo shooting for “InTe” a new organic tea brand for european market

“InTe”  is a new tea brand in Europe selected from the finest and best organic ingredients. “InTe” lets you choose the depth of intensity and experience that suits you mood you are in, or want to be in. It lets you celebrate that through it carefully designed and developed products. I had the chance to create beautiful images to emphasize the richness of colors and details of the product but to keep the simplicity of theirs nature.

How I created the images:

When I went to the CEO of the company, I had no clou what’s awaiting me. I hadn’t meet him before and I didn’t know how is his taste for photos. He showed me a luggage of 38 different tees in beautiful red brown packages with a simple design. In the conversation with him I found it out he likes, simplicity in the product photography, like me … specially when you live  in a very busy and chaotic city like Bangkok 🙂

He gave free hand to create simple but significant images. He was not satisfied with the previous photographer. Because the images weren’t beautiful and hadn’t riches of details. InTe  is a natural and organic product. Tea leaves take every day a bath of sun and glowing like a sun. So I decided to arrange them like a sun, spreading the rays around and like a rainbow after the rain in the sun let them shine in all their beauty and colorful richness of details. As the photos were ready and I presented them to the CEO, he was surprised and delighted about the simplicity and beauty of the photos rich of details an colors.

From Photo to Video

The satisfaction of the CEO about my professional work brought him the idea to make a video about “InTe” … Two weeks later he called me to meet him at his office. As always in his short sentences he said he wants to have a very short video around 20-30 seconds to show different colors of the brewed tee, without any models or conventional videos about tees … Something simple and unique. Thats was the short meeting. Now I was alone again with my phantasies and thoughts about the brewed tea. I searched in Internet and couldn’t find satisfying samples and references. So I trust my own fantasy and imagination.

What stands “brewed tee” for?

First of all has brewed tee beautiful colors: different yellow, green, red and brown tones. So me and  my food stylist brewed and drank 38 different organic teas in just one day. It was amazing all the different tastes, smells and colors. Other side we were high for about 2 days 🙂 Finally we found the 4 best teas for the best 4 colors: yellow, green, red and brown.

Second: brewed tea is relaxing and at the same time refreshing, like a small nap accompanying with day dream. Thats the secret of the brewed tea. So this inspiration lead me to choose a bright white light like a day dream. refreshing and relaxing.

My photo studio in Bangkok

In my studio I have a diffuse white special table for shooting. To provide enough light I ordered 4 lamps with total output of 4000 watt. A lighting electrician and camera assistant helped me and the food stylist to do this job. My Nikon D810 an amazing DSLR with a full size sensor and 36 mega pixel was chosen for its clarity, richness of details and true brilliant colors. Using prime professional lenses completed the technical perfection. Hanging the studio with white fabrics was necessary to eliminate bad reflection in the silvery tea pot and create good smooth reflection.

16 hours shooting in one day! Yes we had to repeat the most shots several times to achieve the best result. I usually am not easy to satisfied with the shots and am very selective in my job. I usually go to the limit of possibilities and make sure that we did what we could. Than I can lean back and say: “It was a meaningful shooting day!”

Video edit and music!

Immediately after shooting at the same night I sent the shots to my video editor, a very creative guy also from Berlin based in Bangkok. I know him for a long time and I know how creative, precise and fast he works. The morning after, it was a Sunday, when I woke up the first version of the video edit was in my mailbox 🙂 yes so fast! He chose a lounge music, with a gentle beat and smooth rhythm, with a dreamy and decent female voice. It was almost perfect! We made about a few little changes and sent the second version to the client. They were very delighted and happy about the video and put it im internet.
