Today we have an interview with a brand new producer from the UK, Fox Glove Productions. They caught my attention with their stunning images, scenery and love of Balloon Ace balloons. Today we speak with Ben about his new studio and model Roxy
Give us a little introduction….
Hello everyone my names Ben, from the UK. I used to run a C4S site back in 2006/2007. I always enjoyed the market of balloon fetish. Throughout the UK lockdown I noticed that content was drying up on the bigger studios and the biggest studios are either German based or American based. No Big UK based studios anymore. With the photography & videographer experience I thought let’s get back into the market and rock this world with foxglove productions, the only UK based balloon fetish C4S store. I told my ideas to Roxy in which we spoke about the ideas and what we could do at length during lockdown what started as an idea came to life after lockdown we went and did our 1st photography shoot…

Tell us Roxy’s Favourite type and colour Favourite popping methods
Roxy is amazing to shoot with, we are currently in the process of doing our own Q&A on Roxy thoughts on the balloon fetish world. The energy she brings to the shoots is amazing, the smiling laughing & giggling from start to finish. She fearless when it comes to balloons I have to calm her down in the shoots as just wants to burst the balloons straight away, she’s consistently making me jump from misbehaving all the time and I lost count of the mount of times she says “BANG” in the shoots.
Her favourite colour is pink balloons her preferred method of popping is using her very pointy nails or heels. She is new to the market so doesn’t have a preferred balloon type Yet... although she does enjoy straddling 17” tuftex balloons.
You have some great photos already, how do you find idea and inspiration
I do alot of outdoor photography in general, so bringing balloons into it does have its challenges, balloons in forests & corn fields with spiky thorns etc are not a good combination so it was an enjoyable challenge, inspiration comes easy as I have a creative mind, while am doing one shoot i will be thinking of the next 3 shoots. Although Roxy is very natural in front of the camera with both balloons and photography in general, this always helps with ideas and inspiration when the person being captured is easy going.
Soon you’ll be making videos, what do you plan and what is the best way for people to make suggestions or orders from you
We our shooting our 1st videos 4th October for our C4S site, these videos are going to be in a gym and boxing ring style shoot. That’s all the detail I’m giving away at the moment on them. Who can believe they left balloons after a party at the gym? Belbal Vs Tuftex in the boxing ring? Who knows?
Most shoots are outside in beautiful scenery will you always shoot outside or in the future in studio?
Photography outside is much more brighter and been in Yorkshire give us some of the best scenery to shoot outside. However the majority of the videos will be studio based.
What is your ultimate goal and there anyone you would like to collab with
The Goal of foxglove is to bring new content to the market using UK balloon supplier Balloon Ace. In terms of collab we want to find our feet to start with. But that doesn’t mean in the future we can’t share a photo shoot in person in the forest if Alissa & the girls made a visit to the UK.
