Film stills on a lifestyle shoot

Film stills photography for Eurocamp

Although I shoot film myself I also shoot stills photography alongside a larger crew to cover the stories being filmed. This TV ad for Eurocamp is a good example. When spending good money on models, make up artists and stylists etc, we want to try and get as much valuable footage and stills from the shoot as possible. Logistically it can be quite tricky when waiting for light or fitting in shots between models down times (especially children) to get everything required. The photographer needs to be ready with camera, lights and direction for what sometimes is only a few minutes window. Building a good relationship with the film crew is obviously very important, so mutual respect allows both director and lifestyle photographer to get their shots. For similar shoots have a look here
