Made in Yorkshire – Portfolio Showcase

Companies have faced many new challenges during lockdown and forced to work in different ways to get by. At Picture Perfect Photography, we saw this as an opportunity to give something back to our Yorkshire community; and start a new project that would celebrate Yorkshire’s manufacturing history – ‘Made in Yorkshire’. 

Yorkshire became the hub of the industry back in the 17th century, leading the way in manufacturing steel, textiles and many more materials. As a fellow Yorkshire business, we sought out to capture some of the most impressive manufacturing details with quality product photography and bring awareness to the manufactures operating in the industry today.

Manufacturing photography is often seen as boring, dull and unexciting. Collette Evans, our professional photographer, is always looking to break boundaries within her photography and so it seemed clear to work with unexpected companies right on our doorstep.

Our ‘Made in Yorkshire’ journey started by head hunting Yorkshire manufacturers to take part. We saw a huge interest on their part to do something new and see their products in a creative way. It wasn’t long before we had eight companies signed up and they were sending their products to our studio to photograph. These companies were:

AME Group – a product consultancy

C-thru – dental aligners

Dapper Dan – barbershop products

Edwin Jagger – shaving and grooming products

Haywood & Padgett – bakery products

Polyseam – building and construction materials

Plastic Precision Engineering – machine technologies

Rocol – industrial lubricants

Collette had an idea in mind for how she wanted the end results to look. Pinterest mood boards were created, edited and carefully considered. And one by one, we took images of these products on a white background and sent these off for creative retouching and CGI. 

We are so pleased with the overall look of these images. While they each have a similar look, they all have their own individual style and creative look which related to each product and company.

This project as a whole has been one of the most exciting things we’ve worked on. It brought the whole team together to work on a unified goal and took the business into a new area for potential future work. Our live unveiling event hosted the PPP team, the companies themselves and press to launch the images and reveal them to all parties.
