‘Tis the season to be silly, and when Happy Kinder Parties asked me to photograph a gaggle of giggling elves for their website, I wasn’t about to be all Bah Hambug about it!
It certainly wasn’t your usual Sunday morning activity. As soon as the elf models/party entertainers arrived, the music was cranked up and we had a lot of fun trying out a few poses. The idea was to portray the elves as mischievous but loveable little scamps, and I think we hit the nail on the head.
To get the right shot, we decided to stitch photos together in post production to create the perfect tableaux of naughtiness and festive fun. This meant we got them to jump around and improvise elfish behaviour on their own and in pairs. They were then edited and lined up in Photoshop. The photos were helped a lot by very well made outfits that were perfectly colour coordinated. The elves were particularly taken with the bright green and red converses!
The results were great – you can see the photos on the Happy Kinder Parties website. I’ve also put a small selection of my favourite photos below. If you ever need children’s party entertainers you should give them a call. I was thoroughly entertained and I’m not exactly their target audience! If you don’t believe me, take a look at their ridiculously high trust pilot rating. Five hundred happy customers can’t be wrong.
And if you need any commercial work shot next year, please get in touch. I’m happy to shoot any promotional work – be it hotels, pubs, theatre productions or elfin caricatures! I’ll provide you with friendly, good value service that freshens up your website.
