I met the CJ Love team at their warehouse in Bexley to take some photographs & make a short film about their business & how they operate for their new look website. This was a pretty unique job as I started at around 2am- with the unique nature of this business of being a florist wholesaler CJ Love work throughout the night as orders come in and shipments go out.
After meeting Dan & Matt Love they gave me a short tour of the warehouse and explained exactly what they wanted before letting me loose to capture everything. I was conscious to not get in the way as the warehouse was a hive of activity as hundreds of different types of flowers were being sorted ready to get to their destinations by day break.
There were some challenges involved in filming and photographing on this job, mainly down to lighting. Harsh warehouse lighting and the way it flickers along with it being the middle of the night provided quite a challenge but one that wasn’t too much to handle.
We also grabbed some headshots of all the staff to go on the website as well and so we really provided an all round service for CJ Love. We created 1 main highlights film lasting 2 minutes, alongside 7 shorter 45-60 sec films for each different page of the website, we took close to 2,000 photographs of flowers, stock and staff so that there was a rolling stock of photos for them to update their website with, and finally the headshots of all the staff.
A thoroughly enjoyable night was rewarded with a nice bacon sandwich around 8 am before I drove home to start the editing process! I had a great time working with the guys from CJ Love and hopefully I will get to work with them again in the future.
