Leave a comment

A busy start to the year

It is always nice to get a year off to a good start. It has been particularly good this year as we have had a nice mix of returning customers and some very high profile new ones. The corporate video side of the business has been particularly successful.

Returning customers

We have continued to work with Hokksund based OSO Hotwater, the largest manufacturer of domestic and industrial hot water tanks in Norway. Last year we photographed around 90 tanks for their new website, all shot in a consistent way and to super high quality at their own premises. In addition, we have built for them a library of production images from the factory and photographed around 30 headshots of their management team. This year we have been photographing in their showroom in Oslo, some of their tanks in a  lifestyle setting for use in catalogues etc. Further product shoots are scheduled over the coming months.

Social Media Management

We have built a brand new web site for Jensen Eiendomutvikling AS, based here in Svelvik. All the programming being done in house by ourselves and we have taken over the day to day management of their social media in order to build their follower base and to drive traffic to their website. A very interesting project as it combines our photographic skills with our marketing background – perfect combination.

Photographing beer

We were recently contacted by Norway´s oldest brewery, Aass Bryggeri, based in Drammen, to shoot their full range of beers and beer glasses. This was a very prestigious job for us but one we were very pleased to take on given our extensive experience in shooting glassware and beer. Further shoots are scheduled for them later in the year.

Corporate video production

Another very large local employer contacted us to undertake a series of video productions and product shoots for them. Jensen Beds is part of the Hilding Anders Group and is this year celebrating its 75th anniversary. We were asked to film a message from the CEO to the staff which was aired on the day of the anniversary. We were also asked to film the staff on the anniversary day as they watched the presentation and afterwards enjoyed a celebratory cake. In addition, we have now completed a series of product shoots for them; beds and mattresses photographed at their factory, in a lifestyle situation. Further video work is scheduled for this month.

Rental of apartments

In between these large projects we have completed a shoot of two apartments here in Svelvik, that are now on the market for rental. The owner needed a set of high quality images for each apartment that he could use to advertise them each time they go back on the market for rent – a good investment for the future for them.

Post pandemic growth

As businesses emerge from the effects of the pandemic, we are finding that more and more are looking to strengthen their online presence through digital media. We see this as a real opportunity for them and for ourselves as we work together to deliver quality, creativity and a partnership based on reliability and understanding to ultimately grow their businesses.
