Photo shooting for NunnaUuni
Who can think of winter’s topics like heating during the currently hot summertime? This no problem for pro publica as we are making long-term plans for all of our clients. This is particularly the case for our client NunnaUuni, a Finland based manufacturer of soapstone stoves. The client wished for new images which could be used for press and marketing purpose during the autumn and winter months. Therefore pro publica did some research among the owners of brand new NunnaUuni stoves, picked the ideal candidate and organized a professional photo shooting with models and requisites on site. On 10th July pro publica staged a recently installed soapstone stove in a semidetached house in Lünen. However, prior to the actual photo shooting some preparations had to be done: we had to arrange the furniture and the position of the models and adjust the lighting in order to stage the NunnaUuni stove at the best. We have documented these preparations for you. Some impressions of the shooting can also be found on our Facebook page.
