Today we can officially bid farewell to the winter blues and welcome, warmly, the arrival of spring! It might still be cold, but the evenings are longer and Home Gig is optimistic that spring is in the air ~
At Home Gig spring is about getting back outdoors, taking weekend mini-breaks and planning for our summer photo shoots, installations and special events. The fact that the weather is warming means that we'll soon be able to actually wear our favorite spring trends rather than lusting after them in our closets ~ pastel rain boots, sorbet colored jeans and bright colored corduroys are what we are excited about.
This month, together with the warmer temps and extra sunlight, Home Gig is inspired by seeing the fruits of our labors grace the pages of Architectural Record ~ we hope you will be inspired too!
Love and Light ~Lauren and Eivar
Architectural Record and Home Gig at Duin Huis in Aquinnah
At Home Gig we understand the value of great photography, we feel this investment goes a long way in your marketing mix. Whether for your portfolio and web content, advertisement, competition submissions, editorial matter, or marketing collateral; with good photography comes the opportunity to build your brand.
Having worked with some of the best architectural and design photographers in the business, we are experts at strategizing, forecasting, directing and investing in photography. Indeed, there are a lot of moving parts, and obstacles that get in the way, but when planned and organized properly, the results of a good photo shoot will leave you armed with one of your best marketing assets.
When it came to photographing Duin Huis in Aquinnah we were fortunate to work together with architectural photographer Brian Vanden Brink on this two-day shoot. The team experimented with animated objects to suggest lifestyle elements and to expand marketing possibilities and editorial reach. Lauren and Eivar were on hand to model, stage and style this jewel of a home. As a result, the editors approved, and we were delighted to learn that Architectural Record featured Duin Huis in Aquinnah in their winter 2014 online issue.
From scouting, documenting, information gathering and writing to scripting, styling and staging the shots, this photo shoot was a successful endeavor and allowed us to produce an eye-catching submission, earning the recognition this project deserves.
