Client: Spike Lighting

Spike Lighting creates custom lighting pieces for the high end hospitality industry.

Assignment:

The client was looking for on site photography of their custom lighting pieces. It was important for them to maintain a visual consistency across all marketing platforms. Their preference of clean, colorful, environmental interiors led them to my work. The client ended up signing a contract for 14 locations (hotels, restaurants, casinos) in 13 different cities. Having one photographer shoot multiple locations allowed for the style to remain consistent for all imagery. A very clear shot list was provided, including technical drawings, for each photo shoot. While the client was not on site for each shoot, communication was constant throughout, especially as challenges arose on location.

Challenges:

When photographing a product that is illuminated, as well as reflective, the lighting and angle can be tricky. I do everything I can to produce a beautiful photograph straight out of camera however such difficulties are beyond my control. To get the look the client was wanting to achieve, I needed to use HDR techniques and retouching on the reflective qualities of the lighting pieces.

Final Product:

Spike Lighting received portfolio images for their newly redesigned website, including shots that are used for design elements. The photographs are also being used for traditional sales & marketing materials, social media and editorial.
