Myself, Emma (product designer) and Katie Nattrass-Daniels (Creme Creative, Art Director) travelled down to Plymouth on Monday to carry out a full day photoshoot recce for the Royal Marines Shop. We spent the night at the Stonehouse Barracks and enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the mess with the marines. On the Tuesday we spent the day with 1 Assault Group Royal Marines. 1 AGRM is the lead for amphibious warfare and Royal Navy board and search training.
We travelled around the coast on a landing craft in search of the best locations for the upcoming Royal Marines Shop photoshoot. The shoot will be carried out between 11th-14th July and will be used for the RM shops upcoming marketing for 2016/17. We have some fantastic locations lined up to use as well as a selection of models including serving/ex Royal Marines and members of the Royal Marines band. Over the next two months there is a huge amount of planning to be done to ensure we get the most out of this fantastic opportunity.
