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…
We were delighted to see that three of Mark Harrison’s portraits: Nadiya Hussain, William Parr and Stephen Hawking were all chosen to be in the final 100 for The BJP Portrait of Britain competition. The images can be seen til the end of September on JCDecaux’s digital network of screens in railway stations, shopping centres, high streets and bus stops around the UK. You can also see them here: http://gallery.portraitofbritain.uk/
Mark was also talking about his entries on BBC Radio London with (l to r) Dylan Collard photographer, Jo Good – presenter and previous photographic subject of Mark’s, Simon Bainbridge of the BJP, and Mark Harrison.
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…
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.
