Occasionally, a new client comes along who is a little bit different. Banbury Postiche is one of those clients! After working for a number of years in the hair industry shooting for hair awards and events all over the country, I had never been asked to do a 'Wig Shoot'......until now that is.
Having been established for over 80 years, Banbury Postiche develop and provide alternative hair products and services to customers throughout the World. With highly specialist skills, the kind of clients they deal with vary greatly, and include theatrical, education, health care, trade, cosmetic research and private clients. Along with providing a comprehensive range of products and services they also provide specialised training courses and equipment to trade clients and educational establishments throughout the UK.
Banbury Postiche provide several products, such as Hair Extensions, Crafted Hair Pieces, Real Matched Hair Products, Pillows and Turbans and of course, Acrylic Wigs!
The purpose of their first 'Wig Fashion Shoot' was primarily for a new brochure, but also for advertising, marketing and PR purposes. They wanted to get away from the bog standard 'head shot' and try to show their new collection of wigs as highly desirable 'fashion accessories'. It was great to work with the directors, Norman and Nick, who were very open to my suggestions on how this should be shot. Needless to say, they were very happy with the results and the collection can be seen below.
