Product photography for BSA

BSA are a Birmingham company who have been trading for 150 years.
They have recently updated their website and marketing material and I was asked to provide product photography for the air rifle range.
Working closely with the art director, we managed to get all the guns photographed in their factory, without the need to take them off site.
