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!

 

 

Pink Lady Time Again

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! https://bit.ly/2GyCdoi

 

100 years of (some) women getting the vote

Another brilliant commission from Stylist Magazine for Mark Harrison – shooting these two groups of modern-day feminist activists, with the look of 100-year-old photography, to mark the centenary of women getting the vote for the first time in the UK. Admittedly it was only given to women over 30 or property owners…even so – a huge milestone that we are all celebrating. Have a look here if you want to see more of Mark’s group photography.

Portrait of Britain – Mark II

For the second year running, we’re delighted to announce that Mark Harrison has a portrait in the BJP Portrait of Britain outdoor digital exhibition, chosen as one of 100 from 8000 entries.  In partnership with Nikon, the photography giant, Portrait of Britain aims to show the social and cultural diversity of people in the UK and showcase everyday citizens and unsung heroes. Simon Bainbridge, Editorial Director at the British Journal of Photography, was excited about the latest portraits for 2017, saying, “Collectively, the portraits celebrate the unique heritage and diversity of modern Britain, as much as its thriving photography culture and the myriad styles and approaches they employ in their work.”

Mark’s portrait of Rebecca Bunce was commissioned by Stylist Magazine and you can see it here online or look out for it on JCDecaux screens in shopping centres and commuter hubs around the country throughout September.

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…

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…

Cosy up with Hygge

9781785034466

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 absolutely love this Stylist magazine cover shot by our very own Mark “la Chapelle” Harrison – a fantastic story about the weird and wonderful world of Hello Kitty superfans. Definitely worth a read | https://bit.ly/1Ph45al
