Lamb 2 Ewe, personal brand photography
Marketing images for Lamb2Ewe, Honley
Tom at Lamb 2 Ewe in Honley, West Yorkshire arranged for me to come and shoot some marketing images for him. Once again this was a shoot for the new Honley website. I met up with Tom on a day when his shop was closed so it was easy to shoot a few portraits with him.
Personal branding and marketing
Let’s just say Tom get’s the whole personal brand and marketing of business. He understands how important a brand is so he was happy to help with my ideas. As always being a people photographer I wanted to capture fun pictures of Tom, I would probably call these environmental portraits. It’s funny as soon as I walk in somewhere I see the pictures in my brain.
When I was in the shop I saw a chap open the walk-in-freezer and I knew I needed a shot of Tom in there. I pictured Rocky punching the meat. I didn’t want Tom to recreate this but that’s what my brain had conjured up. It only took my 30 seconds to talk Tom into doing it, set up a quick flash and two minutes later the shot was in the bag.
Meat and produce
When I’m capturing a business for a marketing shoot or personal brand session I’m always trying to tell story of the business. Obviously the main thing for a butcher to sell is meat so it was important to take pictures of that (it does sound pretty obvious) I also wanted to show some of his pies, veg and pretty much everything else Tom sells.
One other area of Tom’s business that is relatively new is his take away business. He has opened a little hut outside and sells absolutely gorgeous hot beef sandwiches and hot dogs, I highly recommend the hot beef.
It was a fun shoot, I think we captured quite a lot of images in a short period of time with minimal fuss.
