This retouch was to be used as a Christmas card for Yamaha Music UK.

The brief was to create a Christmas scene from an existing photograph of one of their grand pianos. I decided to make the Yamaha Grand the centre piece of the image, much like a Christmas tree might be on a traditional card.

This photography was to advertise the Yamaha Sound Projector, comprising of over 40 speakers. Yamaha wanted to show this, while not detracting from the overall look of the front grill.

So for this final image I merged two separate shots (with and without the grill) in post and then added a new background.

This image was created entirely from scratch.

At this stage the client has no packaging produced, so they provide me flat vector artwork of what will become the packaging and I have to create a 3 dimensional representation of what it will look like, including the contents.

The weather was not ideal during this shoot and at the time there were still no leaves on many of the trees, so I was asked to make the image a little more summery with more green in the trees and to brighten the overall image to seem less autumnal.

This was one of the most arduous retouches I’ve ever had.

The brief was to remove all the metalwork from the original Gabion wall image. The metalwork would then be physically remade in-store, as part of a display section for a leading boot brand. The image was going to be a backlit transparency, so ever stone had to be perfect.

The overall retouch took 4 days to complete.
