Aynhoe Park Photoshoot

An Eclectic Mix of Art & Photography at Aynhoe Park

A creative but awe inspiring location Aynhoe Park is a location used for many shoots we were fortunate enough to booked for three days  to shoot a range of dresses at the location for an American high end wedding dress designer for the UK market. We had a choice of 2 models from London agencies. The location was a photographers dream, the guys who own the house created and still own the brand Fantazia famous for large raves and music venues such as the Hacienda in Manchester originating in the early 90′s and Borrowlands. They are both eclectic collectors of the unusual and eccentric art. james nader fashion photographer-Anyhoe Park For the shoot we opted to run with the LED light panels as there was quite a bit of natural light throughout the house. The lighting in the Orangery was sublime as were many of the locations thoughout. We were able to utilise the large windows and fantastic mirrors, opulent furniture and the eccentric items which adorned virtually every room Our approach was. Treating the whole shoot purely from a high fashion point of view can be a little difficult  especially when photographing wedding dresses, the very subject can suggest that maybe the items are not that fashionable but essential! and at the end of the shoot we were to create a look book style of imagery suitable for web and offline marketing and of course the obligatory opportunity to shoot some of our own looks for the book always feature.  
How it all mapped out The location didn’t really throw curve balls technically, we settled into the 3 days shoot and photographed some great images, lighting in the process , 2 Polar Bears, 1 full grown Lion, 1 Leopard, 1 Zebra, numerous birds, a fantastic amount of Roman and Greek style busts and a miniature Parthenon, not to mention shooting in the room where the original John Swannell work and Bob Carlos Clarke classic prints were hanging. Each room gave us a super look and afer 3 days we had a suitable range of fashionable images for the US client JAMES NADER FASHION PHOTOGRAPHER-Alex
