Rory Hutton & The Royal Opera House

Last time I wrote about working with designer/illustrator Rory Hutton I mentioned we had some projects in the pipeline. One of them was a video highlighting designs for Rory’s collaboration with The Royal Opera House (you can find more information about this collection here). We wanted to create a short behind the scenes film depicting a design’s journey, from research and conception to execution and sale. We shot the video in Rory’s studio in South Block and you can check it out below:

And here are some portrait shots of Rory taken last summer in his apartment:

Rory Hutton

I love Rory Hutton's designs - I own one of his beautiful bow ties and I'm planning on expanding that collection. There are exciting things happening for him and we've got some projects in the pipeline together. In the meantime, however, you can have a look at some of the portraits of Rory I took last summer.

Nu Blvck

Nu Blvck is a new ethical fashion brand focusing on artisan-made, limited edition accessories and they enlisted the brilliant I'll Be Your Mirror and myself to work on images for their very first collection. The shoot took place in July at the Panopticon as well as a few outdoors locations in the East End of Glasgow. The day was long, cold, rainy and often crowded but we had a truly brilliant team who made it all a breeze. And I'm pleased to say Nu Blvck successfully reached their Kickstarter campaign goal in August and are now working on developing their brand further.
