Retail people

Shooting the Board of Directors and senior management team for Debenhams 2016 Report and accounts gave me the chance to shoot some really nice group shots in an interesting environment, with some room to breathe for a change.

It also gave me the chance of an altogether more illuminating experience, shooting in-store scenarios in my natural reportage style, to cover all kinds of activities from the clothing rails to the make-up counters, featuring a wealth of individuals who drive the business of this retail giant.

Getting your kicks

A chance meeting at a networking event with Ken Pankiewicz from KickFit gave me an insight into his world of running a Martial Arts School.

A couple of months later I found myself shooting an event for him where the full repertoire of Martial Arts skills were on view.

A Private view

As Summer comes, so do the End of Year Shows.

Further to a project for Wycombe High School for Girls towards the end of 2015, I returned to capture the culmination of creative achievement from the Art Department on the opening night of the exhibition.

Following the Paper Trail

Early 2016 saw me back on the road for Global Paper & Cardboard products manufacturer Smurfit Kappa to shoot some new images for their Sustainability Report incorporating locations in the UK, The Netherlands, Austria & Switzerland.

Lots of paper work, but on an industrial scale.

The next move for Beiersdorf

The starting point for a fresh new look for the Beiersdorf Careers homepage was to create some "moving stills" for a new web banner.

Working through a process which included various tests with cinemagraphs we eventually settled on some "quiet" video clips to combine into a simple moving web banner.

Some screen grabs from the banner can be seen below.

The video for the banner can be seen here showing off all it's moves, together with some additional new photography throughout the new look Careers section of the Beiersdorf website.
