A mash-up below of some recently released work.
This year I’ve been sent abroad to photograph various people in the beauty Industry at Clarins, Elizabeth Arden and L’Oreal for the New York based Condé Nast magazine Beauty Inc. This occasion it was a few days in Paris to photograph a cover story of Laurent Attal, the Executive Vice-President Research & Innovation at L’Oreal.
For anyone who’s tried shooting in France in August, they will feel my pain in trying to get equipment. The country is basically shut down for the summer. Regardless, I was pleased with what we shot in the end especially considering the brief snippets of time we had with Laurent.
Tate & Lyle
I was asked to create some eye catching imagery to promote the ‘Talking Pack’ campaign for Tate & Lyle featuring Melanie Sykes. The idea being that if you download the smartphone app Blippar, you can scan the barcode on a pack of T&L sugar and the app will show you a video specific to that type of sugar with Melanie giving tips, inspiration and best uses for that sugar to help with your baking and cooking.
We shot at Portland Place where the therapy scenes in the Kings Speech movie were largely filmed. As you can see on the behind the scenes video, we shared Melanie’s time with a film crew which can be tricky. Different brief, different lights etc. But a thankfully harmonious set meant we ploughed through and everyone got what they needed.
Payday loan companies have recently been getting some bad press. However the statistics of who use Wonga’s services tell a different story. With this in mind, Wonga commissioned BAFTA nominated film maker Gary Tarn to make a film. Gary had full autonomy and Wonga weren’t involved in the creative process to keep complete impartiality. The only stipulation was that the film used Wonga customers somehow.
The finished result is ‘12 Portraits’. I was asked to shoot the film poster and some promotional & PR imagery of Gary.
