Food glorious food (x 2)

We’re loving our double food Christmas campaigns  – with Mowie Kay for KFC and Con Poulos for Waitrose – we’ve covered all your Christmas food desires…Do get in touch if you’d like to see more work or call in books!

 

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!

 

 

Awards here, awards there…

We’ve been happily collecting a clutch of awards  to go on the office mantlepiece over the last month  – David Boni won a Roses award for his Smooth Glasgow portrait project for Whyte and Mackay (exhibition picture) and both Tom Parker and Susan Bell were winners in the Pink Lady food photography awards.  Tom Parker won first prize in the Politics of Food category  and Susan was second in the Food of the World  category. We’re very proud of all our talented photographers and look forward to more wins in the future – no pressure!

January already?

We really needed our Christmas break this year as we finished off 2016 with a 3 days shoot for a new beauty client with Susan Bell and started 2017 with a 4 day shoot for David Boni with another new – this time pharmaceutical – client.  It’s only halfway through the month and we’ve already been out and about with the portfolios and treats for hungry browsers and had a creative PPM at the top of an unfinished skyscraper with Mowie Kay.  So all in all 2017 really started  with a bang for us – and we hope it has for you too.

 

Looking forward to working with old and new clients again this year – and do let us know if you’d like to book us in to  come into your office to show you portfolios and bring you cake…

 

#InLucidsWindow

Today we drew back the curtain to unveil Con Poulos as this months artist #InLucidsWindow .

Opting for a refreshing Ice Lolly and a Pina Colada image, we hope it puts all our visitors and neighbours in the mood for Summer.

Spring at last…

A whole weekend of sunshine (alright and showers) and we know spring is really here as Mowie Kay’s most recent shoot for Caffe Nero has just come out. We always love working with Caffe Nero and shot these gorgeously summery frozen drinks  on a sunny, but cold, day in January. Now the days are a bit warmer we can’t wait to put these drinks to the test…

What a difference a year makes…

On our way back from a meeting with a new client last week, Mowie reminded us that it has been a whole year since we started to represent him.  How time flies when you’re having fun! Apart from being a delightful person, he is also a rather talented food photographer and we’ve loved introducing him to new clients…from big brands including M&S, Caffe Nero and Harrods to Borough Market superstar scotch egg purveyors Scotchtails. So here is a reminder of some of Mowie’s shoots over the last year and we can’t wait for the next year of working together! If you still want to see even more of his work you can follow him on instagram and twitter as well as on our website.Scotchtails Slicing copy Mowie_Kay_M&S_Week3_1932_SalmonCooked Mowie_Kay_M&S_Week3_1658_Truffles Mowie_Kay_M&S_Week3_1474_FlourEggsSugar Caffe_Nero_Takeaway Latte_0179 Harrods-Burrata-Opener-Option-1
