Professional Photographer Magazine kindly asked to interview me for the July Issue of their magazine.
Advertising Photography Capturing Chefs In Copenhagen
This image is from an advertising shoot last year for Knorr which took me to Copenhagen for a whirlwind shoot.
This was not my first trip into Europe for Knorr having previously shot in Rotterdam a couple of times. I was once again briefed by Bristol agency Flourish to what was required for the product which was for Unilever‘s Knorr Artisan range.
Commercial Photo Shoot, Yeovil Town F.C. Community Sports Trust
Combining two of my passions in Commercial Photography & Football is as my mum would have phrased it “like having your cake and eating it !” My son now 11 and a half has been at Yeovil as a player since he was around 7 years old. As a result of spending a lot of time at the club for training sessions and games, the Yeovil Town Community Trust learnt of my work as a commercial photographer in Somerset and asked if I could help them with their imagery & promotional needs. The Trust is the charity arm of Yeovil Town F.C and also run the Youth teams and training sessions and various other work within the local community.
The latest images they required (show here) were to illustrate the various Development Centres that are located around Somerset and their appropriate kits for a new website launch. Having full creative freedom I decided that the kits and model would look great captured against a white clean background and then to create some impact with the creative use of lighting.
The trust knowing my son had recently modelled in a video for the NSPCC and the fact the budget was tight being a charity asked if he would model the kits for the shoot.
Here are a few of the images with the completed photo retouching.
We find ourselves quite fortunate more often than not to work for some very nice people / clients.
It’s only natural that we actively seek out companies and agencies whom we believe are not only a good fit with the type of work we do and enjoy but also who are known to be great people to work with.
Protexin are one of those such companies based not too far from our studio who we had heard great things about.
They had some very impressive new premises and won several awards including being voted one of the best local employers to work for.
I should add Protexin manufacturer pro biotic products for both human and veterinary consumption.
After several phone calls and mailers we met up with the marketing team over a coffee at our studio cafe to discuss some ideas we had for them.
As it turned out what we had to say and show went down very well solving a particular problem the team where seeking a solution for.
Below is the first of several videos we are producing over the next several months to help Protexin showcase their production & premises to their overseas clients in a contemporary engaging way.
