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!
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…
It’s a bit too hot at the moment to even consider cosiness as a concept, but we couldn’t resist this lovely book that Susan Bell has shot for Ebury Press. Hygge is the Danish concept of feeling of belonging and warmth and finding joy in small things. Well, we can totally go along with that – so make a pot of coffee, relax in your favourite chair and curl up and dream with this book, full of gorgeous images and ideas.
We had a very happy, champagne fuelled, night out (thank you Tattinger and Pink Lady) at the Food Photography Awards last night . It’s always a lovely chance to see many of our favourite clients in one place, and to look at some amazing food photography on the walls. But last night, we had even more to reason to enjoy it as our very own Susan Bell won first prize in the Production Paradise Food off the Press category (https://www.pinkladyfoodphotographeroftheyear.com/finalists-gallery-2016/ ) To say that Susan was surprised to win would be an understatement – but she rallied round and we helped her to celebrate late into the evening. Congratulations Susan on a fabulous win!
