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.

Handmade London - Seb Edge at North London Darkroom

I'm continuing to shoot more portraits for my Handmade London project as it's popularity grows.

Last month we headed to Tottenham to meet Seb Edge who runs North London Darkroom. Seb set up the darkroom in 2012 to provide a space where he and other film shooters could develop and print their work. Shooting in the confined space of the darkroom under dim red lighting was a bit of a challenge, but I'm pleased with the result. See it in high res on the website here.

Moss Bros Bespoke Campaign

A few months ago I shot the launch imagery for Moss Bros' new range of bespoke suits. Established in 1851, Moss Bros are a British formalwear retailer with over 100 branches across the country. Shot on location in a beautiful old house near Greenwich, we spent a day with Creative Director Sotos Georgalli and his team creating a series of images evoking the craftsmanship that goes into each suit. Look for it in stores now, and take a peek at a few of my favourites below.

Not On The Highstreet campaign

Back in the spring I shot the lead imagery for the new 'Dadpreneur' campaign for Not On The Highstreet. We spent a day with the lovely Ed Benn and his family. Ed runs a small design company called Stabo making screen prints from his home in Cambridgeshire. I shot the picture in the same style as my popular Handmade London project.

Here's the final image:

And here's how it was featured online and in print:

See some of the pictures we shot over the summer live on the new Canon "Come and See" website:

New EOS and Powershot cameras for Canon Europe

Things have been a little slow on the blog lately as we've been out shooting so much over the summer. So I'm pleased to be able to share some of the work we've been doing for Canon Europe and JWT. We've shot in London, Florence and the Italian Alps to create fresh lifestyle images to support the launch of the EOS 7D mark II, the XF205 camcorder and a whole range of Powershot compact cameras. You can see a few of my favourites below:

TUI Marine in the British Virgin Islands

Been a bit quiet on the blog recently as we've been away shooting so much. But last month we were out in the British Virgin Islands shooting an image library for TUI Marine and their luxury yacht brand The Moorings. I shot for them last year in the Bahamas, and this shoot was to launch their latest boat, the 514 Power Cat - and very nice it was too. We shot for 6 days across 5 islands with 4 models on 3 yachts. Here are a few of my favourites. Big thanks once again to Shannan at TUI for the commission.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launch

Last autumn I was commissioned by R/GA in New York to shoot for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The brief called for atmospheric pictures of London life that would appeal to a Generation Y audience, but with a focus on the overall scene rather than the people in them.

After casting a team of extras from Facebook and Twitter we hit the streets for 5 days with a lightweight crew to make staged documentary shots in style that could have been shot with a smartphone. Big thanks to Katie Higson and Tim Bowditch for assisting, Danny Bouchard and Bryony Collins at LPA for production support, and Tamara Lund at R/GA for the commission.

Here are some of my favourtites:
