Anyone who reads blogs regularly will have come across many posts where we claim our inspiration is drying up. It happens to me all the time - sometimes just for a frustrating afternoon, other times for infuriating weeks on end. It can be so incredibly annoying, but is part and parcel of any creative job. I think it's partly due to constantly creating content - I never take time away from it, because I love to do it and just don't want to, but it means I never step back from it. So sometimes you have to find ways to refresh things without actually taking that step back. A big one for me is shooting in new places. Whether that be through travelling to new cities, exploring a new part of London (something I never do and need to do more) or, as is the case here, hiring out a studio.
I did this for the first time last Autumn and got some of my favourite ever photos from it. Since living in London and being rather obsessed with my own flat, I have really come to love shooting indoors, so working from a studio has been the perfect way to take things a little further. Also, as a little side note, my favourite place to find locations is on Shoot Factory and it doubles up really nicely as an amazing website to stalk for interiors inspiration - I have spent more time than I care to admit feeling fascinated at the houses some people live in!
So this is the third post I am sharing what we shot in the studio, and I have a couple more to come too. It has certainly worked for making me feel inspired because it has made me think more and more about Spring/Summer content and everything I want to create once the weather permits. As I mentioned the other day I have been in the Dominican Republic for the past week (We leave tomorrow, nooooo!!!) so the outdoors and jungle vibes have been continuing in a big way for me too.
