This past June, some of our Business Development team was sent down to Lake Oswego in Oregon to do a photoshoot. I asked Dorik how that shoot went and was even able to get my hands on some candid shots of the team working to get the right angles. Here’s what Double D had to say about their trip down south:
“The team consisted of myself (Dorik or Double D), Heather, Brad, Jake and Kristian our photographer.
To back up a little bit when we were first looking for home to rent, we were tasked to look for homes where we could do multiple patio collections. Boy did we find a great home!
The plan was to shoot Madrona, Montlake and Ravenna patio collections. Why not throw Montlake cushions and Umbrellas? Sure, why not!
Started to plan what furniture props we would need to bring, product we would need to order from the warehouse and how we would transport all this stuff to Oregon. Mutiple cars maybe or a big moving van?
Idea alert!: What if we were able to rent one of those Class B RVs. Yep, you guessed it, we would be trying to do a lifestyle RV photo as well:
Trip down to Oregon was pretty easy, a cool 3 hours. House was tricky to find but we all arrived safely.
The following 3 days are what I’m truly grateful for.
Photoshoots are challenging due to sunrise, sunset, bright sun, shadows, clouds, electrical failure and hunger just to name a few.
Up at 4:45AM with the last camera shot around 9pm.
These are long days and the team never stopped making things happen. Everyone helped:
Building furniture, staging furniture, setting up a cover collection shot, steaming wrinkles from fabric, discussing where to shoot the next shot, filming new video ideas, making it rain and somehow put together food at the end of the day. (thank you Heather!)”
