Raccoon London & My Perfect Cousin

Brief Response and Estimate

Brief Response

To create a library of bespoke photography and video content reflecting the brand values, tone and energy through a series of shoots on location and in the studio.  To deliver a range of assets that reflect what the brand stands for - authenticity, sophistication and charisma; inclusive and understated.

The content will re-affirm the position of Nyetimber as the modern icon of discerning accompaniment for food lovers, wine lovers and refined celebrations for life lovers, by creating aspirational luxury imagery and video that invites large audiences to discover and enjoy the brand. 

This response delivers a detailed budget proposal and costs plus portfolios of our recommended team members who would best fulfil this brief.

Our final recommendations for models (blogger partnerships) and locations and creative direction will come at the next stage of development once we have sight of your creative brief, brand guidelines, and the opportunity to move forward with a creative development meeting with your team.

TEAM Solution

Raccoon London (Stills) & My Perfect Cousin (Video) bring together a one-stop solution offering in house creative services covering all production needs, working closely with your internal teams and agencies.  By working together we are able to offer a consistent output for both photography and video, producing seamless and cost effective shoots by combining resources and support teams. Based in London we have extensive networks, both in the UK and internationally, of suppliers, locations and creatives, to enable us to fulfil any size brief with the appropriate resources, expertise and equipment.  

There will be one Project Manager across all shoots for a single point of contact between ourselves and your team.

All progress will be managed online to enable you to see moment by moment progress and status on any project and deliverables - including budget status.

All deliverables will be available via a private online platform for approval processes and download.


Our unified workflows will ensure in subtle ways we communicate and re-affirm the Nyetimber brand in the look and feel across all deliverables. This will be achieved by not only considering the lighting solutions, shared locations and set builds, but also the composition and colour treatment for everything created.  Our photographers and film makers will have creative freedom but work effectively within the brand parameters and closely with your creative team.


Raccoon London has a roster of over 20 photographers covering every genre including food, drink and lifestyle, and will match the strongest photographers to the Nyetimber brand once we have access to the guidelines and creative brief.

To retain consistency in delivery of content, compatible photographers specialising across genres are recommended.  A specialist food and drink photographer for the product shots and a specialist lifestyle and portrait photographer for the location photography.  All imagery would be edited together for brand focussed look and feel, subject to the next stage creative development.
