Turning Ideas into Realities
art direction cgi
Developing distinctly ownable and aspirational images
Achieving the perfectly imperfect and delivering a beautiful, but more realistic and lived-in look (albeit by very stylish and tidy inhabitants).
These images, worked on in collaboration with Creative Content Works, were to establish distinct looks for Feather & Black and Dreams.
I approach art direction of CGI, as I do ‘real’ photography. For this type of project, I typically prepare detailed written briefs with supporting moodboards and talked through briefings.
The winning formula:
Working with smaller, more realistically sized spaces, not everyone sleeps in a ballroom
Exploring a wider range of lighting conditions – golden hour, dusk and nighttime
Incorporating more organic elements; plants, textured and draped fabrics, etc.
Propping that embraces older and personal items. To help with a sense of curation and better achieve a range of interior styles, especially for Feather & Black
Styling with a stronger point of view, based on customer segmentation, to avoid lack lustre and generic shots
