By Colin Browne | 13 September 2017

This was one of the quickest shoots I’ve ever done. I arrived at the FWJK offices in Umhlanga just before 9am, set up my lighting in the boardroom and in came the first staff member for their company photo. A total of four staff members rushed in on their way to and from meetings, I…

Regal Meats Company Shoot

By Colin Browne | 12 September 2017

ACP Marketing Packshots

By Colin Browne | 29 June 2017

Doing packshots is never as easy as it seems. All these products were very reflective and I had to be very careful, I used a closed lightbox with just the end of my camera lens sticking through an opening. Even still I got reflections which I had to remove afterwards in Photoshop. The other trick…

Del Coursy 2017 Collection

By Colin Browne | 26 June 2017

I recently spent two full days doing fashion photography in my home studio for a jewellery brand named Del Coursy. The first day was doing the packshots for roughly 150 items and the second day was the models shoot. Because I don’t have a permanent studio, I set up my backdrop and lighting in my…

Riverside Day Spa Shoot

By Colin Browne | 29 May 2017

I was asked to do photos for the Riverside Day Spa to be used in their brochures, website and other advertising. I felt like I had been transported to another planet when I walked in there, because as a man it isn’t an environment I’m used to being in. They really have thought of everything,…

By Colin Browne | 22 March 2017

I was on my way to another shoot when I got a call from one of my old clients, he told me one of their warehouses was empty and they needed professional photos to advertise it to potential tenants. The brief was quite simple, to show off the space and scale of the warehouse and…

I often get called into businesses to take professional photos of the staff, premises and machinery. The photos get used on websites, in annual reports, brochures and other marketing material. Action Coach is one such company. I like to capture the staff in their work environment, it gives the photos an honest and real element…

By Colin Browne | 09 February 2017

I was called in to a company called Chilli Source to do their corporate staff photos. Being a design and advertising company, it was important to push the creativity.

By Colin Browne | 07 December 2016

Motion Tronic are an industrial automation business, I have no idea what that even means but they seem to sell and service all sorts of electronic machines and gadgetry that you’ll most likely find in factories. All I know is that they have a lot of complicated looking machinery there and the staff seem to be real…
