The White Company Interiors

Frank has been working exclusively with The White Company Interiors Team in Cape Town for 9 Years. And we Love them! We love the product, the concepts, the props, the food and are always proud of the final images.

This season we had the pleasure of working with the talented Anders Schonneman as photographer and the lovely Elkie Brown as stylist.

With a small flexible team they always manage to effortlessly create the flawless alfresco scenarios; the tempting dinner table, the perfect garden party and the immaculate white bed. One day I might just have to jump into it!

The White Company returned to Frank Productions again this season to produce their Fashion, Interiors and Lifestyle shoots.

World reknowned photographer David Loftus shot the interiors and lifestyle images.
Frank Productions sourced a handful of bespoke ‘on brand’ locations which were then styled by Elkie Brown to create a relaxed al fresco White Company environment ready for the models to add a touch of life.

The Fashion shoot was headed by New York Based Fashion Photographer Olivia Graham, art directed and styled by Sarah Clark. Frank Productions helped create the Capri Glamour, with yachts, unique locations and props.

Frank sourced and cast two model families, Mums, Dads and countless kids. The models worked across both the fashion and lifestyle shoots, which were being shot concurrently and therefore Frank productions worked hard logistically to co-ordinate, models, wardrobe, product, props and Lunch! (on some days we had 30 people on set!).

Frank Productions produced the Marks and Spencer Home shoot for the 7th time in Cape Town. Working Closely with Axon publishing who efficiently produce, art direct and design the Catalogue for Marks and Spencer.
It is always nice to welcome old faces to Cape Town and catch up but this year we were also introduced some new team members. Photographer Jeroen van der Spek from Holland, which gave producer Francien van Eck a chance to polish up on some dutch.
It was Jeroens 1st time shooting in Cape Town and I think it is afe to say he was really happy with the variety of locations on offer, the weather and the level of production service.

We also had the pleasure of working with reknowned interiors Stylist Glen Proebstol who flew in from New york for the shoot.
Glen added magic his magic to the images, the shoot atmosphere and Cape Town. We at Frank productions are still missing the music and the moves.

The shoot is always a production feat as 12 tons of product arrives on our shores, which needs to be unpacked, sorted into stories, pre assembled and delivered to set each day. After 7 seasons we would like to think we have the hang of it as this shoot proved to be a huge success.

Next, another loyal client to Frank productions came to Cape Town in December 2014 to shoot their Home Catalogue. Their 7th consecutive season with Frank Production.

As usual Art Director Tim Garner came to Cape Town for a locations recce prior to the shoot where he toured the Western Cape, reccying all the new locations on offer.
Frank also organised meetings with potential local stylists and photographers that could be part of the team.

With all locations pre selected and crew well briefed the shoot always runs smoothly. This year we had two teams shooting consecutively at different locations.

Franks team worked hard therefore to ensure that the right product was with the right team at the right location, which is logistically harder than it sounds as often the product needed in two places at once!
