I was commissioned to cover the Essential Open Trade Day at their large warehouse in Fishponds, Bristol.
The event is their own trade show, with 60 suppliers exhibiting and over 500 visitors on the day. They are a wholefoods wholesaler specialising in vegetarian, vegan and organic food.
The images were to used for advertising (on the website, social media, and their price list). They required images of customers arriving, staff working, suppliers exhibiting, the entertainment, the food street area and bar/tea garden.
Whilst it’s was predominantly a business event, it’s also a fun, family-friendly day and they wanted – candid images of people have fun.
I was booked for the whole day and it was great to meet so many individual businesses and learn about their products and produce. The lighting in the warehouse was challenging so flash was pretty much essential for most of the day. Overall I managed to get a good selection of images and the event appeared to be a huge success!
