Beer bottle photography

Beer bottle

A friend of mine from Basingstoke, Spencer of Spencer Phillips Photography kindly brought me some beer down when he came to visit. As a thank you I showed him how I would photograph the bottle.
I used a couple of different lighting techniques to light the bottle to show the stunning colour inside the bottle and bring the label to life.

The beer was made by Andwell Brewing Company, an award-winning brewery based in a former trout smoke house in the idyllic riverside hamlet of Andwell in Hampshire.

They are committed to using the finest ingredients and combine best floor-malted English Maris Otter barley with chalk aquifer-percolated water, rich in natural ions and goodness to create our Mash. Once in the kettle, we add carefully selected hop varieties chosen for their distinctive aroma and bittering qualities.

I think I got as much enjoyment out of shooting it as I did drinking it, a very tasty brew indeed.

BAVO awards

Lee Jukes Bridge FM bavo awards

I have had the pleasure of photographing the BAVO awards again this year.
BAVO’s Volunteer Achievement Awards are designed to recognise and honour
outstanding people and organisations that have made a significant contribution to our
community during the past year.

The awards were held at the Heronstone Hotel and compèred by Bridge FM DJ, Lee Jukes.

The event was very well attended with guests including Bridgend councillors, mayors and AM Huw Irranca-Davies sporting his Movember growth.

Everyone that attended the awards were entertained by the Tenovus Cancer Care choir, who deservedly received rapturous from every person in the room.
