Some new work for Worldpay creating the images for their new campaign targeting small business folks. Nice to work with the guys at BBP agency for this one.
Had a special guest in the studio last week. Congrats to her for not breaking anything. This time...
Nice to see the digital OOH for the Lipton work I shot a couple of months ago go live for 72 & Sunny. Bring on the summer!
Nice shoot last week with Jack Daniels care of Twin productions and Haygarth. Busy shot list as ever but some nice environments to work in so some good stuff was got in the can. Though (slightly worryingly) I've now decided to add an essential piece of equipment to my shoot EQ list moving forward....see 3rd picture below. Essential I tell you!
Well, it's customary I suppose, so I kicked off the year in a saintly manner with Lipton Ice Tea at Holborn Studios. Lovely team including the folks at 72andSunny Amsterdam, the genial Ray Spencer, digi whizz LSdigi, Rob from Edge, Lucy @undercranked & the man with his finger on the melodical pulse Rich Harris. Busy but productive times....must be all that caffeine.
A set of images I finished the year with. I was clearly vibing dark, moody monochrome as xmas approached....I can only blame the relentless London social xmas drinks scene for taking it's usual annual toll on morale... Till next year!
I've been on a bit of a drive recently to actually print pictures rather than just collect them in the endless recesses of my digital back-ups. I've used Blurb before and was putting a recent book together and thought I'd try someone else out. So I had a look at what Saal (http://www.saal-digital.co.uk/) have been doing and put together a landscapes book based on a super wide format.
So how'd it work out? Few images below. One of the nice features is the lay-flat binding which means you don't loose anything in the gutter. This is a really nice feature actually...and in fact it seems like there isn't a gutter at all (the image somehow runs across it) which allows images to do they're thing with minimal impact from the bind.
Build quality feels good and printing sharp with good colour fidelity to originals. I used the Saal software to put the book together (as I wasn't intending any text) which was pretty straight forward.
One hurdle I did have was trying to pay for it as the e-commerce part of the process for some reason wouldn't accept cards from my bank. Was a bit odd as I tried too different accounts from that bank...and only when I switched to use a card from another bank did it process payment. So a bit of a frustrating end to process.
But all in all...nice product!
More work for The Macallan up next - the release of Double Cask shot out of a couple of lovely locations in east london. Styling by Tamsin Weston.
