Menier Venues, situated in The Menier Chocolate Factory Arts Complex, offers versatile spaces that are available for a wide range of events and is situated only minutes away from London Bridge station. When I call myself a London photographer, i encompass the true meaning of this word – I lam based just minutes away from this venue, which is the heart of London. On this occasion it was the Menier Penthouse with incredible views of The City of London skyline.
I was lucky enough to be asked to bring my skills as a behind the scenes photographer to this incredible venue. On this occasion the venue was used to record and broadcast a company annual update from Rituals UK.
Rituals UK is a high-end brand that offers a wide range of products, from skincare and cosmetics to home fragrances and candles. The brand’s mission is to help people slow down and enjoy little things in life. Being a high-end brand they expect high-end photography, which is exactly what I deliver as a London photographer, every single time – I take incredible pride in my work.
The set up was a high-specification production package that included a range of cameras, monitors and technical support.
Menier Venues London Photographer: Behind the scenes photographer
The venue was perfect for it, it had two different set ups for a live stream to their virtual audience.
I was there capturing Behind the Scenes (BTS) photography, so photographing the crew, the production, candid shots of presenters, make-up touches. It could also be described as documentary photography. As an event photographer I approach any event photography with my documentary photographer hat on – so Behind the Scenes photography comes really naturally to me. It also requires a photographer who is skilled in capturing candid and spontaneous moments, and who can work discreetly without disrupting the production. As recording is happening any noise can be captured, so I had my camera in a silent mode and I was very light on my feet too!
There was plenty of laughter throughout the day and I was sure not to miss it with my candid photography skills, making sure I didn’t miss a single moment.
And moments of celebrating the Rituals UK achievements!
I also did capture some close ups of the Rituals UK product displays as I believe this gives context and they are very valuable shots.
I love behind the scenes photography as there are so many different details to be captured and so much scope for my creativity.
The venue outsourced the catering locally to The Table, which specialises in brunches. It kept everyone going through the filming day.
At the end of the recording, Rituals UK people were waving goodbye to one of their team members and they did a small celebration and surprise recording for her.
And of course a confetti cannon signalled the end of a very successful recording day at The Penthouse Menier!
