Tobias Reymond Foto | Film Amsterdam

"In this Spotlight, Tobias Reymond Foto | Film shares some of its latest studio-based work, as well developments in moving content. Autumn has arrived, and therefore we show some dark and exciting images. Really fresh colourful fruit in dark atmospheric lighting makes the images interesting, and great for packaging!

In addition, we had the honour of shooting the evolution of Heineken bottles for the Heineken Experience. The oldest bottles date back to 1900, and are usually shown in the Heineken museum, Amsterdam.

With social media and moving billboards coming up, we focus more on moving content. For this reason we’ve invested in a serious motion control rig, thus we're now able to realize repeatable and subtle movements. This allows for cost-sensitive productions and tag-ons. We shot a 25” TVC for Samsung kitchen appliances, all 16 takes shot in one day!

Our team consists of three professional and well trained photographers, a production manager and a designer / backdrop artist. We draw from a consistent group of the best food stylists and retouchers. We are preferred suppliers to Unilever, KLM and Ahold."
