Shop Tent - Popup Photo Studio

This year's London Design Festival took on an extra level of excitement this year as I turned part of the Tent show into a photo studio! I was there to photograph the work of over 60 designers for the new Shop Tent e-commerce platform.

Primary Grey/Shop Tent

Over the four days I met, and photographed the work of many talented designers such as Galvin Brothers, Cascade, Situs, Studio Löfström, Alice Blogg, Kitty McCall, Mr Wingate, Parris Wakefield, Michael and George, James Price and Primary Grey to name just a few.

It was refreshing to work with some larger items of furniture, including a 45kg solid bronze chair from ChiLab - try shifting that!

I caught up with some of my clients too... Studio Flock, Sue Pryke, Wild and Wood, Lorna Syson, Fanny Shorter and Melody Rose all had excellent work on display.

On the last day I even picked up a beanbag from Fatboy - recommended!

To see some of the results, check out the updated Cutouts gallery

Loving the cutouts from Shop Tent? Now I have the studio space, I can shoot smaller groups of products, even at short notice. Find out more here.
