CommercialModel Shoot

(UPDATE, Nov 2017) – see comment from Alexandra in the comments box below.  I had absolutely no knowledge until now that real-fur was used.  Based on this information being true, I can now confirm that I will not be shooting for Holland Cooper again.  PLEASE RESPECT ANIMALS AND THE ENVIRONMENT, many thanks, Richard.

——————-

Up until now, all shoots I’ve carried out for luxury clothing brand ‘Holland Cooper‘ have been studio-based.

When they told me they had a brand new kids clothing section to announce to the world, we knew it simply had to be a location shoot, making the most of the autumnal colours us Brits love so dearly!

How fortunate we were to have such an adorable little girl and her sausage dog puppy join us for the shoot.  Both were unbelievably so well matched and camera-friendly as they patiently posed for each and every photo.  Who said never to work with kids and animals anyway?!

The photos are already on Holland Cooper’s website, and I hear will also feature on big banners inside Harrods soon too.

  1. Hi,

    Are you aware Holland Cooper uses 100% real racoon and fox furs on their garms from skinned alive animals who were bred in tiny wire cages in China and developed extreme mental illnesses? Also, the inside of the coats are insulated with 100% real duck feathers from ducks who have been plucked alive until their skin was ripped off and sewn back with no anaesthetic?

    Unfortunately, the use and abuse of animals has come back into ‘fashion’ in the last few years. It’s everywhere on the British high street, from Primark to Max Mara. It’s the pom poms on hats, attached to bags or shoes, the fur trims on parkas and even cat and dog fur has been found to be sold by outlets such as Misguided. It’s mislabelled as fake fur and the tag says 100% acrylic. 90% of the fur sold in this country comes from China where there is no animal welfare, so locals’ pets could be stolen and skinned alive for a decoration.

    We have contacted Holland and Cooper but they refuse to receive any educational advice and have blocked people from speaking up.

    I hope in the future you will consider promoting an ethical and compassionate brand who respects animals and the environment.

    • Thanks so much for what seems to be correctly-researched information, that I absolutely wasn’t aware of. I will now update the blog post, and vow to never shoot for Holland Cooper again. 🙁
