A Christmas Photoshoot with Music For YouFriday December 11, 2015
Festive Photographs with Andrew Jones and his Trumpet
Is it right to have so much fun taking photographs? This photoshoot, in my studio with Andrew Jones of Music For You, was fantastic fun, but with a focused and clear objective.
Andrew is an amazing trumpeter and has played at major venues across the UK including the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. I must admit that when he gave me a demonstration I couldn't believe how a trumpet sound could be so very soft one moment and then vibrate the emotions inside your chest the next. The music was beautiful and the way Andrew could hit and hold a note was something special. Talent was standing before me!
Under the banner of Music For You, Andrew provides music for a wide range of events and our aim was to illustrate that he covers Christmas events such as company parties and end of year federation dinners. However, just having a photograph of a trumpet didn't quite get the message across and so we came up with the idea of dressing up his trumpets and taking some photographs of Father Christmas playing the trumpet (which I am sure that he does in his spare time). We ended up with a selection of photographs that were slightly different.
At this time of year, with so much hard marketing focused on getting the general public to part with their money, it was lovely to produce work that was simply fun and would, hopefully, make people smile.
A selection of photographs from the session with Andrew can be seen in the Christmas Themed Product and Company Photography section on my website.
