Covid-19 social distancing graduate photoshoot

All set up with oodles of social distancing to shoot 50 graduates over the next six hours !

Careful planning and a co-operative client allowed us to safely set up and photograph 50 graduates and their families from ACS International School at Egham today.

Holborn Studios 40th Anniversary

I’m delighted to say that my portrait of actor Kenneth Cranham has been selected by Holborn Studios to be part of their 40th Anniversary photographic and film exhibition this June. This image will be exhibited alongside some very iconic names in professional photography from the past 40 years so it’s a big honour. It was shot as pre-publicity for his role in Florian Zellers’ play “The Father”, which takes an emotionally intense look at the world through the eyes of a man experiencing dementia. Cranham won an Olivier Award for this performance.

DIY SOS

Earlier this year we visited the house in Bromsgrove to photograph the Stiltz homelift installation. Until last night all our pictures were under BBC embargo, but now the programme has aired we can finally show them. 28 year old Karis was diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a baby. She still lived with her mum Karen, who’s own health was deteriorating and was making caring for Karis almost impossible. Older sister Jo was desperate to give Karis a new home, but her house was wholly inaccessible as the doors and corridors were too narrow for a wheelchair and there was no easy access to upstairs. To avoid Karis having to go into a residential home Jo’s house had to be completely remodelled by Nick Knowles and the team. Needless to say Karis and her family were absolute joy to work with and it was a pleasure to see how the DIY SOS project – and in particular the Stiltz homelift – has changed the family’s life.

Sock it to me !

It’s November. The weather has been terrible and we have socks to photograph. I foolishly suggest the “socks on the line on a sunny day” shot would be a nice addition to my client’s website. She says yes. I then realise that am now totally dependent on the weather. But what’s this ? On the morning we’re ensconced in the studio the sun suddenly comes out ! We grab the products, some clothes pegs and a length of line and rush outside. We grab the shot and 20 mins later it starts pouring with rain again…
