Set Building & Styling

We set the standard when it comes to room-set building and styling.

Set Building

A professionally built room-set can completely change the look and feel of your product – giving it scale and mood. Our set-building team knows exactly how to enhance the features of your product to make it more desirable. It doesn’t have to be a complete room-set to make the difference – of course large furniture photography does require a large set, but smaller items benefit from being shot in a setting too – it brings your product to life and adds to its appeal.


As with everything else we do at HDTWO we involve you at every step to ensure you get the images you want. We begin with simple floor plans and mood boards to create the right feel for your product and market. Working closely with room-set stylists or with yourself we achieve the perfect look and feel to present your product to the right audience in the right way.


To save you time and money we have a well-stocked in-house prop store and a selection of pre-built walls, windows and flooring – alternatively we can source or create bespoke items if needed. Our team of set builders are highly experienced, but we also have close working relationships with specialist set builders and tradesman which we call upon if required.


We work closely with some of the best stylists in the industry to get the right look for your images. We involve our Interior Stylists right from day one – creating mood boards for colours and themes and propping your shoot to achieve the exact look and feel for your product and audience. Whatever look you’re after from classic style to contemporary chic, they know how to get it spot-on and just as importantly, within your budget.


Stylists are a key ingredient when it comes to food photography too. Our freelance Food Stylists and Home Economists are a vital asset to the team and ensure food looks mouth-wateringly magnificent. Our Food Stylists know how and where to source the best ingredients and how to prepare and cook food specifically for photography – and of course they can do it all conveniently in our in-studio kitchen.


Hair & Make Up Artists are crucial when working with Models, every blemish in their skin will be put under the spotlight and every stray hair on their head will be visible. A keen and critical eye is vital and our freelance Hair & Make-up Artists work right alongside our photographers to ensure everything is picture-perfect, using our in-house model changing room.
