Home of several world-renowned award winning ales, and famously Madonna's favourite tipple, Taylor's is very much the pride of Keighley, so I took extra pride in this commission - helping out with product and clothing shots for their new web shop.
"Timmy" Taylor's is a staple of my hometown, its biggest export. Growing up in Keighley, the Knowle Spring brewery always had a certain "Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory" vibe to it. I remember how the amazing smells would drift up the valley to my school.
This was a very varied and challenging job that was a lot of fun. We were keen to ensure the shots felt 'real', so shot as much as we could at the brewery itself, borrowing brewery staff to model. I used my portable lighting gear to set up a makeshift studio in the boiler house for the majority of the bottle and leisurewear shots, with the cycling gear being shot out in the yard - making the most of the mountain of empty kegs as a unique backdrop.
Thanks to the guys at brewery for the commission - it was great to work with you all, and Im massively proud to add Timothy Taylor's to my client list.
Head over to their new webshop to see the shots in situ, and buy some Landlord while you're there. It's the best ale on this damn planet.
