Introducing: The Prop Swap

Hello beautiful Copper Boom followers!

Lots of things are going on behind the scenes here at Copper Boom HQ, including potential new space to house our HQ, but more on that another time.

For now, what we'd like to do is introduce a new weekly thing: our Prop Swap.

In order to take beautiful photos, to tell the story of your products, to keep things fun and fresh and relevant, we need brilliant props. And seeing how we know lots of fabulous creatives with gorgeous products, we thought we'd ask you for props to use.

How it works

Each week, we'll post a blog here listing the props and types we're looking for. In exchange for a prop (some we'd like to keep and some we'll just borrow), we'll take a dedicated product photo for you to use. That's right. Not just the photo where your product is a prop, but also a beautifully styled photo of the prop you're giving or lending to us.

How to get involved

If you see anything on the list below or next week or whenever, get in touch! Send us a snap or a sketch of your product via email (hello [at] copperboomstudio [dot] com) and we'll let you know when and where we need it.

Note: we can't guarantee photography on a quick turnaround, and we can't always take detailed direction for Prop Swap photoshoots. But we'll do our best.

The List

So, right now, our first ever Prop Swap, we're looking for:

  • Christmas bunting, paper or fabric, reading 'Merry Christmas'
  • Dog collars and leads
  • Ribbon
  • Gift wrap
  • Wooden, metal or Eames style dining chairs, different colours and styles
  • A sofa! Okay, this is a biggie, but as we look to move into a bigger space, we'll be able to photograph and use larger furniture. So we're looking for a neutral, lovely sofa to use in photos.

If you can help us out with any of these products, please get in touch! We'd love to hear from you.
