Cosy up with Hygge

It’s way 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.

Cool Cows

Have you ever seen such a cool looking fringe? This gorgeous girl, called Morag, was the star of David Boni’s latest shoot – for The Royal Highland Show.  If you go to the show look out for Morag in all her glory on a billboard, with a few added extras that make her even more lifelike…!

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)

All the info is here – and we hope to see you there… http://www.brockleysociety.org.uk/thenandnow/

Welcoming Tom Parker – amazing travel and lifestyle photographer

travel002

 

We are so pleased to announce that very talented travel and lifestyle photographer Tom Parker has joined Lucid Representation.

Tom’s career as a photographer was established during the Asian Tsunami in 2004, when his photographs of the unfolding tragedy were used on the front pages of almost every international newspaper. Nowadays he’s renowned for capturing exquisite, iconic images of some of the most beautiful places on earth. Tom has shot in over 80 countries and last year alone flew the equivalent of round the world five times. He is immensely versatile – working in the deepest mine in Asia to shooting erupting volcanoes from helicopters in the Congo, as well as capturing the essence of luxurious hotels.

It’s probably best not look at his pictures before you book your summer holidays (serious travel envy), but do have a look at his work here: https://www.lucidrep.com/photographers/tom-parker-2/

Do give us a ring or email if you want to arrange to meet Tom, or call in his books and we look forward to showing you his work soon!

Pick up a (D&AD) pencil

210131_d553ee3305464914b75ffb3c1bd0eb74We are absolutely delighted that Robyn Vickers and the Ogilvy and Mather crew won a graphite pencil in the D&AD for their project for Amnesty. It was a tricky project involving hours and hours of work with melted wax, candles, models and hidden figures.  The project raised both money and awareness for Amnesty and was a great success.  We are proud that Robyn was involved – you can see more about the project here:

The other side of the camera

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!

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.
