Client: APRICOT Beauty

Project: Capture the beauty and healthcare brand APRICOT

Worked with: Ivan Stamato Baptista

The assignment

The natural cosmetics brand, APRICOT Beauty was looking for a photographer who could capture the lifestyle of the company rather than its products. The idea was to portray the products in a natural and warm way.

In addition to capturing the brand, the photographer was required to handle the organizational aspects. These included scouting a location and finding a model.

The process

In order to find the best talent for the job, APRICOT Beauty collaborated with Cherrydeck.

By submitting a brief, APRICOT Beauty was able to open a job opportunity, where they specified the budget and requirements, and gave an overview of what the job entails.

Ivan Stamato Baptista was the photographer chosen for the job, and was sent the products that should be presented throughout the campaign.

The production

After finding out that he had received the job, Ivan was sent the products by the brand and indications for the shoot. Soon thereafter, he chose a day for production and the team he wanted to work with.

When I saw what they were looking for I immediately got inspired and sent my application.

The main aim of the campaign was to show the usage and vibe of APRICOT through its products and the lifestyle it represents. The organizational aspects of the project took not more than 3 weeks, while the photoshoot itself took only 4 hours.

In order to capture the positive lifestyle of the brand, Ivan used a Nikon DLSR camera with a 105mm lens for most of the close-ups. The campaign was shot on a Mediterranean-style rooftop with white walls and floors, so a reflector was not needed.
