The Making of a Bag Brochure – Leon Ockenden and Esther Walker made our Photoshoot a Totalhoot.

The preparation begins a long time before brochures start popping through letter boxes. This autumn’s brochure began life back in July with the photoshoot which was to give us the lifestyle shots for our bags.

This year we wanted to get people who weren’t professional models involved, but to have characters who were known in other walks of life; to bring an extra dimension to the shoot and for it to have a relaxed and realistic feel. Little did we know how much character would arrive in the room when we chose to invite two special people to be our models: actor Leon Ockenden (known for his hearthrob roles in Mr Selfridge and Waterloo Road amongst many others) and journalist Esther Walker (who writes with disarming humour about real life in a way most of us can only wish we could). A day of great hilarity ensued and we certainly got the ‘life’ we were looking for in our shots.
