Shooting Valentino handbags – Jodi Jones

Jodi Jones is an award-winning photographer, producer and creative director. She often has to work with tough deadlines and demanding clients that expect full collections to be shot in one day. Often she handles both still and video shoots together. Getting the perfect light for every shot throughout the day is crucial. “It’s a real challenge to work under pressure on very limited set up time and to shoot such a variety of looks in one day” states Jodi. “I have clients where I shoot 120 different clothing looks in just one day! This requires not only super speed, but a great team, and having a simple solution to create stunning lighting is paramount!” As with her latest Valentino shoot, this is further complicated when taking pictures outdoors from morning to night and dealing with the overpowering sun while keeping a consistent feel throughout.

From the beginning of his career Ignjat said “No matter what camera you use, no matter the budget, I taught myself the importance of good lighting. I came to realize that light is the magic touch”.  Now Ignjat looks to create the most interesting frames using the camera and lights of his choosing.
