Food Glorious Food

We’ve been working on some lovely top secret Christmas projects recently with our food photographers – we can’t show you any of that work of course – but grab a snack, and settle down to drool over these examples of Susan Bell, Mowie Kay and Con Poulos‘s tasty work to whet your appetite!

Do get in touch if you’d like to see more work, or find out about availability of any of our artists.

Mark Harrison Portrait of Britain

Congratulations to Mark Harrison for his third win in the Portrait of Britain Competition.  We love this double portrait of Mark’s, which is one of the 100 winning entries into the 2018 Portrait of Britain competition. The work will be exhibited on JCDecaux screens nationwide from the 1st Sept, on bus stops, high streets and in train stations, as part of the biggest exhibition of contemporary portraiture ever held.

We can’t wait to see it on billboards around the UK, as well as seeing it in the book which will be available from Hoxton Mini Press. Books can be pre-ordered here: http://www.portraitofbritain.uk/pre-order-book/ and you can see the full set of winners and shortlist here: http://www.portraitofbritain.uk/

 

Winner Winner!

Congratulations to Tom Parker for winning  the “InterContinental Food at the Table”  at The Pink Lady Food Photography Awards last week – one of our favourite nights of the year (thanks to Tattinger and the fab Caroline Kenyon).  Great to see Tom’s work up on the wall and you can see all the finalists and his winning work here: https://bit.ly/2KJCC9F

We’re looking forward to next years competition already!

 

 

Pink Lady Time Again

It’s that time of year again – and this year both Tom Parker and Susan Bell are both up for a prize, but in different categories (phew).  We can’t wait until next week when the winners are announced at our favourite event of the year.  Keep your fingers crossed for both of them! https://bit.ly/2GyCdoi

 

Portrait of Britain – Mark II

For the second year running, we’re delighted to announce that Mark Harrison has a portrait in the BJP Portrait of Britain outdoor digital exhibition, chosen as one of 100 from 8000 entries.  In partnership with Nikon, the photography giant, Portrait of Britain aims to show the social and cultural diversity of people in the UK and showcase everyday citizens and unsung heroes. Simon Bainbridge, Editorial Director at the British Journal of Photography, was excited about the latest portraits for 2017, saying, “Collectively, the portraits celebrate the unique heritage and diversity of modern Britain, as much as its thriving photography culture and the myriad styles and approaches they employ in their work.”

Mark’s portrait of Rebecca Bunce was commissioned by Stylist Magazine and you can see it here online or look out for it on JCDecaux screens in shopping centres and commuter hubs around the country throughout September.

We’re Back – New Website!

It’s been a busy few months here at Lucid – taking on new photographers onto the roster (Susan Bell, Rowan Fee and Penny Wincer) and  working on some lovely projects with our existing photographers – more about all of these in another post – but we are delighted to finally have our new website up and running. It’s cleaner, bigger pictures and easier to navigate and hopefully has everything you need to find which one of our fabulous photographers would be best for you to work with.  Thanks to the fabulous Tom Hole for his tireless work on it and creative ideas.

Please do get in touch if you have any problems/ideas about the site but we hope you enjoy looking at it as much as we do! (images here by Rowan Fee, Penny Wincer and Susan Bell)

We love working in Brockley – it’s a really lively area stuffed with artists, creatives and interesting events.  So we’re really excited to have been involved organising this big piece of public art that is happening this weekend (19th July). The photographer is Simon Terrill – well known for his crowd photography.  If you have any connection with Brockley and fancy being part of a mass photograph with thousands of other people now is your chance! All the info is here – and we hope to see you there… http://www.brockleysociety.org.uk/thenandnow/

“Don’t think of it as dying” (Terry Prachett 1948 – 2015)

Very sad to hear about the untimely death of Sir Terry Prachett.  His books were a fixture on our teenage shelves, and his satirical fantasy world will be much missed.

This shot is from the series that Mark Harrison took of Sir Terry and his brain scans in 2010 for the Saturday Times Magazine.mh070910_times_pratchett-3964
