New work for Berkeley Homes

At the end of the summer we were shooting in London for Berkeley Homes - North East London. With a new high end residential development going up on City Road, Berkeley needed a series of stylish lifestyle and portrait shots showing the appeal of the area. Shooting in trendy Shoreditch over 4 days we worked with models and local businesses to bring the area to life. Big thanks to Lisa, Sophie and Becky at Hunter Design for art direction and project management. Here are a few of my favourites:

Canon Cinema EOS shoot

Back in November we spent a couple of days shooting film crews on rooftops. Canon had got in touch and wanted to produce new imagery featuring their Cinema EOS range of cinema cameras. Showcasing the new C100 mark II, C300 and C500, we featured a real film crew at work on location in Essex and on the roof of the Truman Brewery in London. Here are a few of my favourites.

Cityscapes for London & Partners

At the start of the summer I was commissioned by London & Partners, the official body for promoting London, to shoot a series of cityscapes of the capital. I started my photography career as an editorial travel photographer, and I still get great satisfaction from shooting beautiful landscapes. Over the course of a few months I ended up on top of tower bridge, on the top of the Victoria Tower, on the balcony of the 3rd most expensive hotel room in London and several other iconic spots around the capital.

You can see a few of my favourites below, and for more landscapes from around the British Isles, visit the website here.

Unilever graduate recruitment campaign

Back in August we travelled around Europe for Unilever. They wanted to show the range of careers on offer across the company and the global brands they represent to improve the caliber of graduates they recruit.

Working with London-based agency SAS, we shot a series of environmental portraits of Unilever employees in a diverse range of locations including plush office blocks, a fake supermarket, an R&D lab, a robot controlled shampoo factory and the car park of a giant distribution centre.

Here are a few of my favourites:

And here's how they ended up:

Handmade London - Gavin Monery at London Cru

A few weeks ago we spent the afternoon with Gavin Monery, the head winemaker at London Cru.

Having just begun creating their second vintage, London Cru are the capital's only winery. While the grapes are gown by vineyards in France, Spain and Italy, everything else - pressing, fermenting, ageing and bottling - takes place here in London. They supply a number of bars and restaurants around the capital or you can order their wines online to enjoy at home.

Below you can see Gavin tasting one of last year's batch. Take a look in hi res on the website here.
