GALLERY OF OUR PHOTOGRAPHY WORK
Along with Testimonials from our clients 

These are some snaps taken from a very fun ongoing series of photos of drinks created by Campfire Trailer to be used on both social media and their website

Striking head turners with a surreal outside feel and drink focus in mind bringing the eye to the serve and telling a story.   

 

"Josh and the team at Propping Up the Bar provided us with promotional photography of our cocktails for both social media and website use.

"Josh is the consummate professional both in his communication in front of the camera as well as a talented and creative photographer behind the lens.

He was always receptive to our ideas and provided creative input throughout the process to stunning results which have been a boost to our online presence with global brands and our client base.

 

We all very much look forward to collaborating again"

PROJECT HIDEOUT

PROJECT MASON'S

One of the beautiful things about working with a bar is the personality you can feel from both the team and the venue itself, this venue has huge amounts of character, as do the staff! 

We captured some amazing portrait shots of the staff and lifted the drinks photography up a level, keeping the look and feel of the venue and the "Charm" of the staff! 

Working alongside Johnny Neill, celebrated distiller on his new product Berkshire Botanical we have put together some cocktail serves and perfect serves to give consumer-friendly and bartender-savvy styled photography for his website and social media.

We have worked alongside Mason's Yorkshire gin to create not only Photography but also a series of "How to make" cocktail videos using ingredients found in local shops, some clever homemade syrups and other cocktail savvy liquids.

Keeping our ethos of consumer-friendly : bartender-savvy at the forefront these 3 videos combined reached over 45,000 views on Facebook alone! 

PROJECT VETUSTO

Project Vetusto involved us working with David, Brand owner to find both the cocktail creation that fit along with the visual messaging of cocktails and mixed drinks for his multi award winning Mezcal brand Corte Vetusto, we shot in a few different locations with various glassware until it hit us! the look! the feel we wanted. 
These photos were shot overlooking Watergate bay, North Cornwall, UK.

 

“I’ve known Josh for some time and he was one of the first bartenders to taste our Mezcal prior to launch. With a superb palate and creative mind, I trust him completely when it comes to creating drinks that showcase our award-winning Mezcals. For this project he also managed the photography which needed reflect the brand - authentic, unfussy, premium and sophisticated.”

PROJECT STRAWBAR

Basil bottle-1

Margaritawithbottle

"Josh was a great partner for us, his industry knowledge and ability to ‘get a brand’ meant we could get down to planning immediately with a campaign that we both knew would resonate. And resonate it did, despite an inordinately difficult time for the industry and bartenders, Josh brought a breath of fresh air to our campaign, making it fun, engaging and informative, resulting in really positive relationship building opportunities for us. To bring longevity to our campaign Josh launched and managed an inaugural UK bartender cocktail competition on our behalf, resulting in 54 entries, over 100k content views and an overwhelming representation of creativity and really impressive Cardrona Distillery brand & product knowledge from entrants (proof that Josh got our brand and could educate on our behalf). His content creation skills & industry network ensured it was a full service activity for us, which is vital for a small team like us."

The Brig


Ash Morgan - Owner and Directing manager of The Brig in Falmouth, Cornwall allowed us to get creative photographing her take away cocktails and some house favourtes along with home made ingredients, that fire shot though! Boom! 

"We were looking for shots that not only made our drinks pop, but also reflected the ambience of The Brig itself. Josh picked up on our brief straight away and helped us style the shots we required, as well as creatively capturing new ideas. Really pleased with the outcome and the efficiency of the whole package."

Artisan Drinks company

Here we worked with new to market mixer company The Artisan drink co to create bright, light and clean photos of cocktails and mixed drinks designed by their mixologist Adam. Highlighting the labels which are works of art by Monaco based artist Alan Walsh they all came out to brief.  

PROJECT CORNICO

Working alongside this family run, zero waste company was an absolute pleasure. Our photoshoot and videography gave then the rustic yet clean feel we felt would fit the brand, you can find the video here >> CORNICO VIDEO  

Storywood Tequila 

Having worked with Josh in previous roles I know first-hand his attention to detail. I was very impressed with Josh’s work and speed of delivery, but even more impressed with how willing he was to go above and beyond what was expected to get the shots we wanted. We will be booking future work with him for sure.
