I love this luxury product shot of the Omega Seamaster. Nice watch too… do you think I could hang on to it….?!

With a launch at the Bristol Sound and Vision HiFi show imminent I was asked to shoot the new LX range of speakers from Mission. The first two models, the LX2 and LX3, made their début at the show supported by a range of photography including a selection of cut-outs and the more creative images you see above. Looking pretty good I think you’ll agree and after a quick listen at the show I can confirm they sound pretty good too, as you would expect from Mission of course! All images ©Adrian Lyon.
These beautiful components from Track Audio were part of a brochure shoot with David Denyer PR which included all their range of audio support equipment. It’s exquisitely made stuff, the attention to detail and the wonderful machining goes right across the range. A joy to photograph! All images ©Adrian Lyon.
So do you remember the humble audio cassette and the majesty of the mix tape and recording your favourite tracks from the Top 40 on a Sunday afternoon? It’s hard to believe it’s fifty years old yet at the same time it seems like an age since it was a useful way of storing and reproducing music such has been the progress of technology in recent years.
It was never the most reliable of media with great arm-fulls regularly needing to be fished out of the deck before being feed gently back into the cassette plus it never really sounded good, especially after a spell in the car. But it did (eventually) allow music to become properly portable and accessible almost anywhere (assuming you had enough batteries) which is reason for celebration in it’s self.
Wonder how long it will be before we’re saying similar things about CDs and DVDs?

These are a two of my favorite shots of the Magico Q1 speakers and Jadis JA120 amp from a couple of recent shoots for HiFi+ magazine. Both are gorgeous products and phenomenally expensive too, but worth every penny, I’m told… (guys, may be next time I could borrow them for while?!) All images ©Adrian Lyon.
To welcome in the New Year I’ve just added three new shots to my still life and product photography folio. I’m excited by this new work which is a more graphic style and I will be continuing to explore this direction in the coming weeks. Hope you like them! Clicking the link above or the image will take through to my folios. All images ©Adrian Lyon.
Here’s another cover shoot for HiFi Plus, this time of the exquisitely made and sounding Sonus Faber Amati. More images from the shoot were used to open and illustrate the review. I really enjoy getting to grips with curves and highly polished finishes of these products which is always an exciting challenge to light, I just wish they weren’t so heavy! All images ©Adrian Lyon
Following on from my last post about shooting interiors this is an example on a similar theme from a recent life style interior shoot for Leema Acoustics (the purveyors of very fine HiFi). These shots were all on location and for them to use for their advertising and HiFi show promotion. There’s more exciting work for Leema to follow when it hits the streets soon.

Here’s the cover from a recent shoot for HiFi+ (April/May 2010 issue). Amongst the Hi-Fi press it’s a title I’ve long wanted to work for so it’s pleasing to have shot the Ayre QB-9 DAC for the cover and lead review. There’s more shots inside to illustrate the review and if you haven’t already picked one up get your copy here. All images ©Adrian Lyon
As the World Cup is about to kick off it seems only fitting to post this study. It’s part of series I’m working on looking at items which have played a part in our lives and then been discarded as we move on to the next newer or better thing, perhaps forgetting some of the moments shared along the way. More to follow soon… All images © Adrian Lyon.
PS Come on England!
