Our AW22 Shoot plus WIN a stay with Malting Farm

Hicks & Brown AW22 Photoshoot At Malting Farm (Read on to enter our competition)

We always look forward to our photoshoots, they are a brilliant day for creating content which is used throughout our socials and website for months to come. All our lifestyle shoots are outside, we use limited props and really do let the products and setting do the talking.

What better location than at Malting Farm, a small, family run luxury cabin site nestled in an idyllic corner of North East Essex farmland. The cabins are all individually designed and were the perfect setting for our shoot. Also with a combination of farmland, cabin interiors and exteriors, fire pits and reservoir there were plenty of great settings to use. 

The small, but perfectly formed site has everything we needed (and everything a staying guest would need to relax). Situated between a wildflower meadow and a lazy stream, each of the luxury cabins has been individually designed and specifically created to provide privacy and space.


There is always so much work involved in organising these days, from casting the model, choosing a photographer and videographer and stylist as well as creating long lists of products to be shot to ensure nothing is missed. Then there are the outfits to be sourced so finding clothing that teams well with our hats, we like to use natural fabrics and use a mix of current high street clothing to more vintage pieces too. 


The day was spent moving from location to location, the results we thought were amazing, ready for the changing season ahead.

After a few very busy days preparing and a long day on location, our AW photoshoot was complete. Thank you to our small but wonderful team who made this happen. And a huge thank you to Malting Farm for lending us their fabulous site for the day.

WIN: We've teamed up with the wonderful Malting Farm and East Coast Distillery to offer one lucky winner the opportunity to win a x2 night stay at Malting Farm and a Gin Distillery Tour at East Coast PLUS a Suffolk Fedora from Hicks & Brown. Ends 12.01.2023. CLICK HERE TO ENTER.
