After an incredible response to our first Capture My Brand photo shoot earlier in the year, we are delighted to announce submissions are now open for the next shoot.
In case you missed the previous shoot... (Which you can read about here) I've teamed up with incredible stylist Chloe Williams (@findmeinthehomesection) to create 'Capture My Brand' - a collaboration photo shoot that brings together brands from across the UK to create inspiring, Instagram and Pinterest worthy images of YOUR products.
The upcoming shoot is inspired by botanical summer living (see below for more). We want products from a range of on-trend brands to sit together in a professionally styled setting which will then be captured by myself. You'll get the images to use in your own marketing and you'll be able to see how your items sit alongside other incredible brands as well as exposure through social media and networking.
After the success of our trial first shoot, we've changed the application process to be much easier and quicker. We've also changed the pricing to accommodate our plans to make this shoot bigger, better and even more exciting than before. If you are picked to feature, not only will you receive the images and the exposure but you'll also receive a complimentary invite to the first Capture My Brand event! Read on to find out more.

The theme of the next shoot is a botanical, rustic, wildflower, olive inspired tablescape. The creative direction for this shoot is inspired by summer living and European summer dining experiences. Think gorgeous ceramics, laid over natural textures and linens. The shoot will be all about surfaces, details and natural elements, with lots to foliage. There are many many different products needed to style the shoot, tables and the event space and we require many different products and brands to pull the look together, so look beyond the obvious products.
NEW for Capture My Brand. We’ll be opening up our shoot location in the evening so you can come and see all the products beautifully styled. Brands chosen to feature in the shoot will get a complimentary invitation to the event – seeing their own products styled amongst other wonderful brands. This event is open to other brands, bloggers, influencers and marketers too.
During the event, @findmeinthehomesection and I will share some of our tips on photography, styling and Instagram – inspiring you to have a go at styling and capturing your own products with confidence.
This Capture My Brand event is a chance to meet others, grow brand awareness, connect with others through Instagram, learn some new skills and have a lovely time (I’m basically trying to make ‘networking’ sound more interesting!)
We also promise delicious drinks, nibbles and styling sets to take away too!
Full details of the event are yet to be confirmed but it will take place in London early in September.
All contributors to the shoot are encouraged to tag other brands in the images they share on social media. It's the perfect way to grow your Instagram community and make new connections. We've been overwhelmed by the success of the last shoot and have seen Insta-friendships form through the Capture My Brand shoot. We also encourage the use of the hashtag #capturemybrand which is continually growing and have now launched the @capturemybrand Instagram account where we'll be showcasing some of the brands involved.
Products featured will also be seen by everyone that attends the Capture My Brand event which will include other brands, people in marketing, bloggers, influencers etc. The event will also be covered on social media.
Images from the shoot will also feature on my blog with tags linking back to your shop.
After the shoot, Chloe and I will be pitching to bloggers and magazines to publish images from the shoot.
Follow us → @capturemybrand
You will receive a link to view/download all the edited images from the photo shoot. You can use the images for online marketing only and you must credit @findmeinthehomesection and @georgiadelotz. An additional use licence may be requested at a cost.
You are welcome to use images that don't feature your products if you tag the featured brands - just out of courtesy!
For each product/set of the same product contributed, you will receive a very minimum of 3 images where your product is the main focus (perfect for really showcasing your item) plus a range of overall images where your product will be featured (perfect for selling the lifestyle that your customers will want).
The pricing to contribute to this shoot is as follows. :
1 product/set of the same product - £75
2 products/sets of the same product - £100
3 products/sets of the same product - £125
4 products/sets of the same product - £150
+ £25 per additional product/set of the same product
A product/set of the same product means either one of a product or multiple of the same product, for example, 1 blue plate or a set of 6 of the same blue plates is still counted as one item.
In the form, you have the opportunity to say what your budget is.
Don't forget, all these prices include:
Professionally styled photography of your products
Entry to the first Capture My Brand event including drinks, nibbles, a product styling set and inspiring talks on styling, photography and using Instagram
Exposure on Instagram through the @capturemybrand account, the #capturemybrand hashtag, other featured brands and through those who attend the event
Potentially getting photography featuring your product published on blogs and in magazines
Submit your brand
Please complete the form below if you think your brand fits with the branding described above. Whilst the shoot is focused towards a dining experience, keep your minds open as the whole space needs dressing and your products could be perfect.
Rather than submitting individual items, we will be looking at your online shop and selecting products that we want to feature. Please include a link to the selling platform that shows all/most of your products that Chloe can then look through and select from.
At this stage, we are just taking submissions and once we've pinned down some chosen brands to work with, we'll let you know all the nitty gritty boring bits.
Thank you so much for choosing to be involved!
