Shore Projects watches – Styling and photographing for Project 2 watches.


Shore-projects-watch-2-Little-Big-Bell I thought it would be fun to show you a shoot that I styled and photographed recently for Shore Projects, a cool watch brand that is inspired by the beauty and fun of the British seaside. Shore-project-2-rose-gold-watch-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell The shoot’s theme was ‘Summer and Fun’ and was part of a campaign for Project 2, Shore Projects’s latest collection of four new watch faces.

The four new faces were in silver, gold, rose gold and black.

I picked the Rose gold face called Salcombe. The strap above is in Rose gold.

What’s cool about this watch is its innovative strap mechanism which allows for interchangeable straps.
Shores-project-watch-leather-strap-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell I wanted to create a Summer vintage feel here. Love the light against that lace dress with the Tan suede strap, Shore-projects-Little-Big-Bell and the striking pink Peonies contrasted against that 1960s blue laminate desk.

Here I’ve shot the Pistachio green polka dot strap against a beautiful yellow floral Summer skirt. The bright pink and powder blue of the book is just the perfect accent colour to show off the mint.

Shore-Project-2-watch-rose-gold-styling-and-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell I must admit, I have fallen in love with this watch.

Rose gold, mint and polka dots, such a great combination.  Shore-projects-baby-blue-watch-strap-Little-Big-Bell Seeing that it is now Summer, I thought it would be fun to use this cute dress with pastel ice cream cones in the shoot.

The watch strap is now a pretty powder blue. I loved matching that pop of orange in both the shoe and that sweet hand held rose.

I think the peach and orange tones really bring out the light blue of the strap. Shore-projects-baby-blue-Summer-fun-Little-Big-Bell Here’s another view. Shore-projects-Summer-florals-Little-Big-B That tint from the Rose gold really looks great with powder blue, don’t you think? Shore-projects-watch-straps-Little-Big-Bell Here they are all together with the interchangeable straps. Time for tea after a day’s shoot. Shore-projects-2-watch-styling-and-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell What’s great about this watch is that it is Unisex.  Shore-projects-straps-Little-Big-Bell Hope you’ve enjoyed my styling shots.

I never knew photographing watches could be tricky as you need to capture its details at particular angles and avoid reflection, but I had such a fun time doing this.

Wishing you a lovely week ahead.

    Gorgeous pictures and I want that watch, with the turquoise strap!

    Noticed the book in the shoot is an old favourite of mine ‘Mrs Harris goes to Paris’ by Paul Gallico which I can recommend and will now re-read.

      Hiya Lori! Hopefully seeing you on Saturday 🙂 Those straps are so cool aren’t they? I can’t decide. xx

  2. I’m waiting for a box of watches and straps to arrive so this post has me very excited! Although now I’m thinking should I have gone for the Salcombe not the Cowes! The rose gold is beautiful.

      Hi Em, lovely to have you visit here. I think the Cowes is lovely too. Enjoy your watches 🙂 x

  3. Hello Geraldine, such a lovely photoshoot you did! Congratulations! I truly love these flowers (especially the peonies) and the rose gold watch with the mint green straps. Totally ready for summer now, when seeing these pictures. 😉 Hugs, Inge x
