Back to St. Geneve

January 3, 2012

A few months ago I spent a couple of enjoyable days shooting St. Geneve’s line of luxury bedding products. They recently asked me back to shoot a whole batch of new fabrics, as well as some of their nightwear designs. This time I asked Leo Cai of Lionlight Photography to give me a hand, and between the two of us, and the hard working St. Geneve team, we set up and shot dozens of bedding and sleepwear products over two long days. We tried hard to add variety to the look of each setup, so they didn’t appear as if they were shot on an assembly line. Here are a few samples from the shoot:

St. Geneve

July 24, 2011

Who says we don’t manufacture products in Vancouver? Richmond-based St. Geneve is one of the world’s leading designers and producers of luxury beddng. I recently spent a couple of days photographing a number of their products in their warehouse. We had four model beds set up, and two teams of designers and stagers working on the sets as we shot them. Each session took almost an hour, as pillows had to be perfectly fluffed and folds in the fabric had to be just right before we could set up the lights and take some shots. We reviewed each image on a laptop before moving on to the next set. All in all, we photographed 16 sets in a little over a day. We really enjoyed working with the St. Geneve staff and look forward to future shoots as their product lines change and evolve.
