Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at a photo shoot? Read on for an exclusive peek into the action at our most recent G Plan shoot, on location in Norfolk.


It all starts with location. Finding the perfect setting to fit our brief was no easy task, however after weeks of searching we came across Stable Acre in Norfolk. Stable Acre is an incredible house designed by David Kohn. With a huge open plan layout, contemporary neutral colour scheme and crittall windows looking out over the countryside, it was the perfect choice.

Upon arrival at the house, the team get to work immediately. The space is cleared, lorries are unloaded and the furniture is carefully unpacked. Three different sofas are to be photographed over the course of the day including Washington and Milton from the core G Plan range and a stunning new corner sofa, Corsham, an exclusive for SCS.

Next, the photographer and creative director get the camera and lighting equipment set up and we start planning the shots. When everyone is ready and raring to go, it’s time to bring in the star of the show… who seems to be relaxing in the sun!

Whilst the models are whisked into hair and make-up, our stylists get to work creating the sets. Location properties usually come as a blank canvas, and Stable Acre is a great space that can be made to look contemporary or classic depending on the sofa design and the shot required.

The styling team carefully select and arrange the furniture and soft furnishings to give the sets a stylish but cosy feel, creating the perfect home for a G Plan sofa.

With everything in place, the models are brought in and the photographer can finally get to work. The models enjoy testing the comfort of the sofas as we try a number of different sitting positions and camera angles until we get the perfect shot.

Eight hours, hundreds of shots and countless cups of tea later, we’re thrilled to share the final photographs with you…
