December 2014. Client: Top Secret

Top Secret isn’t the name of the client, I mean I’m not telling you. To be honest, it is all my clients: As part of the head shots and portrait package I offer ‘Basic retouching’ within the quote. This means I remove spots, shaving cuts, I lighten the bags under the eyes, whiten the teeth…

October 2014. Client: The American Society Of Composers, Authors And Publishers (ASCAP)

Dan Wilson and Marc Almond were a couple of the guest performers at the ASCAP 2014 Awards. Dan Wilson who co-wrote “Someone Like You” with Adele, performed the song solo and even without Adele’s great voice the song still has a lot of power. Marc didn’t disappoint either with his ‘Tainted Love’. Mouth open or…

September 2014. Client: Skelly & Couch

If you want to restore a listed building but you also want to incorporate modern acoustics, lighting and thermodynamics you’d call a good architect. But who is the architect going to call for help with the effects of, say, the annual sunpath or potential groundwater temperatures on the heating designs? Skelly & Couch, that’s who!…

August 2014. Client: International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF Global)

ITF invited a delegation from China to the UK to talk about transport and in particular how the high speed trains are run. We travelled from King’s Cross St Pancras down to Ashford in the driver’s cabin… None of the delegation jumped up and down shouting ‘Yippee! I’m in the driver’s cabin on a high…

June 2014. Client: Up Side Up

Up Side Up is where you can find (and buy) interesting objects that are made by graphic designers. It’s similar to kickstarter where the ideas Up Side Up love will get developed into production runs if enough people hit the buy button. I have made a few videos for them and it’s not just a…

April 2014. Client: Opportunity Now

I now have a Nikon D4s (after a battle with the insurance company) so everything is back on track. It gave impressive results after it’s first outing to photograph the Opportunity Now Awards hosted by Alice Arnold at The Brewery. Opportunity Now is a membership organisation representing employers who want to transform the workplace by ensuring…

March 2014. Client: Harvard Business Review

I borrowed a Nikon D800 as my insurance claim is not yet finalised (see previous blog post). The sensor is too big for a lot of my uses especially when the client (HBR London) needs an image to tweet on the night. The JPEGs are 7360 x 4912 pixels which is big enough to project…
