This quite literally has to be a pretty ‘sh***y location. Yes this is us shooting a portrait against a big pile of poo at MTS (a human waste cleaning service)… Most comedic moment was us all and the agency WCRS travelling back by train – we managed to clear a whole carriage from our new fragrant odour “Crew de la Shiete”
Sometimes jobs come along where you meet people who are a true inspiration, this shoot was certainly that.
Maddie Thomas is a Paralympian Basketball player, at the time of our shoot she was waiting to hear if she had been selected for the ParalympicsGB Team. On her Paralympic debut at London 2012, Maddie was part of the team that secured the best finish for ParalympicsGB since the 1996 Atlanta Paralympic Games, finishing in 7th place. She is in my eyes a young, rising star and inspiration!
It was nice to also work with the team at Mccann Erickson again.
Been producing a shoot on behalf of Vue with Dylan Collard for Santander. We’ve been on a tour of the UK shooting within various trades at multiple businesses. This saw us at Coultons bakery in Eccles, Psyche clothing shop in Middlesborough and Haskins garden centre in Sussex. Check out the weird and wonderful protection we had to wear – Greg your beardy barrier is undoubtedly the best! More touring to continue…
I’ve been sourcing all sorts of industrial props, backgrounds and surfaces for this, to then set design with the products. This was some quite intricate styling on shoes and boots ensuring all creases in leather were perfected and laces neat.
