The Drifting Bear

The Drifting Bear Co. work from a little studio by the sea down in Teignmouth, Devon. They produce beautiful personalised gifts that capture special places and moments in peoples lives. I have known the owner Dave since our College days (almost 20 years ago! eeeek!) and we are good friends to this day. When he asked if I wanted to work with them on some new photography to give a more personal human touch, I jumped at the chance! I’ve always been a huge supporter and admirer of the designs they create!

So… a few weeks ago I spent the weekend in Devon shooting some new product/lifestyle shots for their website and notonthehighstreet. It was a gorgeous sunny weekend, the perfect light for photographing indoors and it was a great chance to get a bit creative with their products and get some nice behind the scenes shots too! It was also a pleasure to take some nice family snaps of the recently turned 1 Bodie! he was the true superstar of the day making his way into many of the shots we did!

Below is just a small selection I can share with you! and if you are looking for a beautiful personalised gift, check out what they do >

The team had some lovely words about my time with them..

“We commissioned James to do some product photography for our personalised gift company – The Drifting Bear Co. We were absolutely thrilled with the finished result. James went above and beyond what we hoped to achieve in the 2 days working together, and our new lifestyle product photography is now fresh and inspiring, bringing our products to life.

James also took some ‘behind the scenes’ photos of us at work that we were also delighted with and even snapped some really beautiful family shots as we relaxed between working.

We would not hesitate to recommend James’ services to others, and are already preparing for our next shoot together.

Thank you James! The Drifting Bear Co. team.”
