Photoshoot at Lake Oswego

Classic Accessories Photoshoot at Lake Oswego 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!)”

Photoshoot at Lake Oswego

Sneak Peek from California

We have been hard at work here at Classic Accessories designing completely new items for this Spring. You heard right, totally new products that we are launching in the coming weeks! We began with our highly rated Montlake Collection and have branched out into new color ways for patio cushions, patio umbrellas and patio hammocks.

Our Creative Departments have been working tirelessly to get the items ready for their debut and the latest adventure came out of California at our photo and video shoots. Check out some behind the scenes photos:








It’s hard work … getting our hammocks to look the right way in photos. Those are Heather Thomas’ toes, our Lead Production Artist here at Classic Accessories. Who wouldn’t want to relax on a warm sunny day in California … in a hammock … for work? She said that the house they were staying at was “Really a beautiful place—it was great to be reminded what sunshine felt like. There were a lot of interesting plants both in the yard and in the area. It was windy in the morning, generally cool weather in the evening, with really warm afternoons. I was surprised by the number of butterflies and hummingbirds fluttering about. Less excited to see the vultures, but there were some other large birds—none came close enough to identify, although Jake did see a turkey.”

While waiting for the morning and late afternoon golden hours, the team enjoyed all of what the villa’s outdoors had to offer from morning hikes around the Felsman Loop Trail to evening walks through the grounds. The photoshoot was taken at this home nestled at the bottom of beautiful Bishop’s Peak, located just 4 minutes away from the quaint downtown of San Luis Obispo. Our inspiration behind designing the cushions, umbrellas and hammocks is to simply enjoy more time outdoors. I think our teams did just that.

We are really excited to bring these new items to market and are thrilled to be more a part of how you enjoy your outdoors, home or away. Stay tuned!
