GREAT SCOTTISH STYLE
The Shoot: Great Scot 2017/2018 Catalogue
The Location: Raemoir House, Royal Deeside
The Weather: Glorious Scottish Sun
Sitting beautifully in countryside just outside Banchory, the gateway to Royal Deeside, it is clear as soon as you travel up the tree-lined driveway that its Georgian splendour attracts people from afar – the helipad gives it away.
We entered through wide doors and into an interior with flocked velvet covered walls and sash windows – the perfect grandeur against which to capture their luxurious tweeds. A quick glimpse through another door and the preparations were already underway – rails of garments, hair and makeup and hot coffee.
Our model for the day was Ashley, she is a real professional and carries off every look to perfection. We loved her strong look in test shots earlier in the year, so couldn’t wait to get started.
First up was the new Officer Jacket. A key piece for this shoot along with the Calvary Waistcoat – tailored military marvellousness. Both pieces immediately went on our wish list! We used the beautiful wood panelling and those sash windows as a backdrop, making the best use of the natural light indoors before stepping outside into the grounds. It was a wonderful day. Somehow we always manage to coax the Scottish sun out for Great Scot shoots!
The day was filled with creativity, laughter and ideas. We do love our job. Enjoy this peek behind the scenes.
