FIVE BROADGATE

5_broadgate_2

On a quick walk through Liverpool street’s Broadgate complex last week, I photographed a few views of the new Number five. A complete contrast to what it replaced, with its sharp cutting design lines and 22nd century looks, It most certainly would not appear out of place in science fiction blockbuster!

BARCELONA

BARCELONA

One of my favourite European city’s has to be beautiful Barcelona!

Having been there many times over the years it alway’s has something
wonderful to see and photograph. From gothic architecture to tree lined avenues
that flow on forever. Always inspirational. Never boring.

(A bit like me then……….)

CGI Render verses straight photography?

In a nut shell, visually, there isn’t an awful lot of difference. Both look fantastic!
The difference comes in “production turnaround time”. Which eventually filters down to cost…….

SONY CHIC

One of my recent studio jobs involved shooting the new SONY e-reader for London based agency BD-network. Shot over the course of a couple of days, we photographed the range’s various color ways and provided initial retouching for the selected shots.

By providing well over forty different variations of color, angles and propping we were able to produce a exciting and comprehensive set of images for SONY’s innovative new e-reader.

PHOTOGRAPHY ON LOCATION AND WHY IT CAN BE BETTER THAN THE STUDIO

melba

I have been working with MELBA LONDON since the companies birth back in 2000. Since then I have seen the rise of this small brand specialist and helped to build their reputation in the fiercely competitive maternity ware market with distinctive imagery.

Company owner, Rebecca and I have always worked closely together to pull together the annual shoots. “We initially started shooting the garments in the studio”, says Rebecca, “but quickly realized that creating a story around a location was producing images that brought the whole collection alive”.

The most recent shoot was conducted in a location house in north London, which by careful initial selection proved a fantastic back drop the 2012/13 maternity range.

LEYTON!

One of the many routes home occasionally takes me behind the east London Olympic park. This is the bit that was rarely seen on the telly but is just a stones throw from all the televised glitz and glamour of the 2012 Olympics. With the grim Eurostar depot on the left and residents allotments on the right the Olympic glitz is back again! Its almost Hollywood meets Leyton. On a budget.
