Sarah Beeny Location Photography & Filming

Location Photography & Filming at Rise Hall

Back in January Blink Photo were lucky enough to work with the very talented Sarah Beeny at her amazing stately home in Yorkshire – Rise Hall. Set in twenty seven acres of the most wonderful countryside the hall is an idyllic setting for a photography shoot with its stunning views and ethereal beauty. We sent two location teams there to create content of both photography and video for Sarah’s new venture, Sarah Beeny’s Home Handles.  in partnership with Hafele.



Freezing Temperatures

Over a four day location photography shoot we created a series of question and answer style videos. The questions were of a DIY/ up-cycling furniture nature so we wanted to create an environment which reflected this and so we styled up one of the out houses at Rise Hall which provided the ideal setting with its exposed brick walls as a workshop. As the shoot was in January the weather was extremely cold with minus temperatures on the first day which caused a few technical hitches such as the sound of thawing ice dripping off the roof – fortunately an old mattress saved the day and was placed under the dripping to mask the sound and wasn’t picked up in the recording. Sarah remained completely professional in the freezing cold and didn’t let it phase her as she was able to deliver her answers to the questions with ease (with the help of a small hot water bottle to hold in between takes!)


Inside Rise Hall

On day 3 of the shoot Sarah dressed up for the occasion as she posed for a series of portraits with Hafele’s Marketing Director Chloe Thacker in one of the beautiful sitting rooms in front of a roaring fire. Our stills photographer then continued to take a series of shots of the actual handles themselves in situ in the butlers kitchen and on furniture belonging to the hall. The four ranges of handles have been developed by Sarah and its her attention to detail for beautiful, quality fixtures and fittings in the home that prompted the partnership with Hafele. The bedrooms in the hall which is now a wedding venue have all been carefully and tastefully designed each with its own unique personality. Each room provided the perfect location for the four ranges of Period Classics, Urban Living, Vintage Glamour and Modern Life as each piece of furniture in the room was carefully selected to fit the style of the handle.

Rise Hall was the perfect setting for capturing the essence of the new range of handles and over four days enough content was created to launch a brand new website, videos for Youtube, a brochure and images for packaging. Sarah was an absolute delight to work with and it was a pleasure to meet her-we wish her luck with her new venture!!
