Fully Furnished - The Furniture Union Shoot

Okay, I'm not gonna lie. A lot of the time this blog is just a vehicle to show off some lovely new photographs. And why not? It's our trade after all and we're good at it (Not meaning to be boastful, of course!). Plus we hear that google likes something new and a little boost to SEO performance wouldn't go amiss!

We are fortunate to work with a variety of super clients all over London ranging from estate agents to developers to architects and interior designers. And we like our property photography to come in various guises. It keeps us on our toes and stokes the inner embers of inspiration. Okay, I'll stop there!

The Furniture Union, a company who specialise in furnishing and interior design products invited us to shoot this fantastic property in Paddington, not far from Hyde Park and Imperial College. We found a marvellous new-build house on a private road decked out in stylish and elegant furnishings - and TFU had installed the kitchen and bathrooms to a high spec too.

Take a look at the wonderful results - I'd quite happily have this as my London pad. Just sayin'!

The Bagel Factory - Flats For Sale In Hackney Wick

The Bagel Factory is a new, 140 flat development in the heart of Hackney Wick from Aitch Group property developers. Meticulously designed by Hawkins Brown, BuckleyGrayYeoman, and HWO Architects, the style of the apartments and decor reflects the industrial heritage of the area, and also the large artist population which makes Hackney Wick such a vibrant place to be.

The Bagel Factory is also on the Help To Buy scheme, an increasingly popular option in a tough London property market.

Here is some of our work from a half day shoot at this beautifully presented show flat for the development.

The selection from the bedrooms is lovely - we particularly like the wall of floor to ceiling Crittall windows, perfect for a renovated industrial building.

The urban chic in the bathroom here is softened with some greenery. The parquet-effect wall tiles are a particularly effective touch.

Colour choice in the kitchen is perfect for the industrial heritage theme.

The renovated warehouse feel of the exposed brick wall is offset by plain, light walls elsewhere, with soothing greys in the flooring and more of those fantastic steel windows.

A secluded, private balcony finishes this show flat off nicely!

To register your interest in a new home at The Bagel Factory, please contact the Aitch Group on 020 8504 4500 or

Property photography snapshot - Preparation

It may seem obvious, but getting your home ready for a photographer is really very important. An excess of clutter and personal belongings could mean the potential buyer misses how spacious the room is, or how marvellous that shiny granite worktop looks. 

As home photographers, our experience means we can instantly know what should and shouldn't be in shot, and we're happy to assist. However, it is a fine line between being a photographer and being a house clearance company! Far better that all of the big items, like a clothes horse, an ironing board and dirty washing are already all tucked neatly out of sight. Then we can concentrate our time on the finer details and make sure a home looks as best it possibly can.

As a last resort, when access is difficult or permission is not granted to move any items in a property, we do have one or two tricks up our sleeves. Check out Pixangle's photo editing skills on THESE!
