Many congratulations to David Boni for his win at the IPA awards for this project – for one of his favourites jobs of the year creating these witty and lively portraits:
This campaign promotes the National Library of Scotland’s free exhibition ‘Northern Lights: The Scottish Enlightenment.’From David Hume to Adam Smith, figures of the Scottish Enlightenment created, discussed and refined ideas that challenged established views and had a profound effect on the society we live in. Their ideas of science, philosophy, language and economics shook the world.
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!
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…
David Boni has been at it again with this campaign for Merlin Amusements with these bug eyed tourists. Shot in Glasgow for TBWA Manchester you can’t miss these posters at the moment. And watch out for the eyes following you…
David doesn’t just stick to shooting beautiful stills for sport and advertising clients but is also an assured commercials Director and DOP – directing live action and online content for commercial and charitable organisations. David’s beautiful lighting, crisp direction and calm persona makes every shoot a pleasure – whatever the medium.
With bases in both London and Glasgow, while shooting all over the world David’s clients include Manchester United, RBS, Wonderbra, Strongbow and HM Government to name but a few. We’re really looking forward to introducing his work to those of you that don’t know it already…but if you can’t wait for and want to see a portfolio or a film showreel let us know!
Mark Harrison was photographing an author in Frankfurt last week, who has written a rather lovely description of what it is like to be on the other side of the lens*. It’s absolutely worth a read for the quality of the writing, but it also encapsulates all the elements that we think make Mark such a brilliant portrait photographer – makes us feel quite proud of working with him!
*As the portrait of Clare Dunkle has not been published yet, here is a behind the scenes photograph of Mark with Olivia Williams also looking very happy with her portrait.
This morning we unveiled the latest addition to our office and new regular feature #InLucidsWindow
Every month we’ll be showcasing a different image from one of our lovely photographers.
Working with the creatives at True Digital, our Alistair spent a glorious pie and pint filled five days with staff at Fullers. Here are just a few of the shots from the campaign.
