This was another epic shoot over a long period of time. More info can be found out about this shoot here. In a nutshell my agents LPA ran a nationwide competition open to creatives to come up with a winning campaign for the charity the Mental Health Foundation. The prize was the campaign produced, shot, styled and printed by professionals. The campaign featured on billboards, bus posters and press nationwide.
I was involved from the beginning of the process of the competition through to sourcing props and wardrobe at production stages.
Here are a few behind the scenes pics!
Photographer Tony Pleavin, my good friend Hannah Marshall and I have just returned from a cruise around the Mediterranean. At the risk of it sounding like a holiday we were actually shooting for P&O Cruises for the launch of their newest ship to the fleet, Azura. The ship is beautiful, huge but beautiful and attention to detail with the decor, entertainment and food (oh the food) has not been spared one tiny bit. We took 6 lovely models with us as well as great clients; Karen, Kate and Andy and generally have set about shooting a great set of lifestyle images for P&O’s library and brochure. I will post the shots up once they are complete, but for now here are the “they look like we were on holiday” behind the scenes shots… It has only just come to my attention though that there are none of us working – I am going to try to find some of those to prove we were!
My favourite clients Visit Britain commissioned myself and Simon Winnall to work on a new campaign targetting the overseas market to entice them to the UK. The campaign was in collaboration with British Airways, featuring the caption “A different picture around every corner”. On each final ad there will be a camera dial that features as a device to see all the different attractions and activities the UK has to offer. Final ads to follow once I receive them.
For now here are some behind the scenes shots. I Produced, Art Directed (on behalf of Albion) and Styled all shots.
We shot a Busby toy soldier street performer in London on the Southbank, a Jazz band in Cardiff at the Millennium Centre, Pipers in Scotland at Eilean Donan Castle and a cake seller in Suffolk at Cobbs Cottage Holiday cottage.
Here are some shots from our kids at play lifestyle shoot for Cultura. Simon and I had lots of fun working with these great kids. I especially loved the prop making of the tepee, oh and the Pimms we had on the lawn!
