“A more than admiral photography shoot!”

Clothing Product Photography

Being of a certain age, the brand Admiral brings back floods of memories. My first England football kit was made by Admiral. I have vivid memories of Kevin Keegan and the boys in the 1982 World Cup wearing that instantly recognisable England strip. My 1st Manchester Utd kit was the 79/80 season Admiral away kit. So it was great to be contacted by Admiral Sportswear to do the product photography for their new range of retro sports bags and new high-end fashion range.

That Manchester Connection

It was all hands on deck, as Admiral had a tight print deadline. Also due to shipping delays they weren’t able to get the garments to us when expected. The fact that we are both Manchester based companies made this situation a little easier. They were able to deliver the garments as they arrived into their depot.

Style Requirements

Admiral’s styling requirement for the shoot was for a slightly distresses garment. Not on a model or mannequin but flat perspective. The files should then be supplied with a slight drop shadow bottom right and with no background.

It was great to be able to get a sneak preview of the new high end fashion line before anyone else. The range includes Polo, T’Shirts, Jackets, Sweatshirts and the retro bags, with I’m sure more to follow.

Final Thoughts

So make sure you keep an eye on the High Street for the new Admiral product range. We are sure this new range will be a great success. They were a great company to work with, and we look forward to future projects.
