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.
With all sorts of props on hand from an Alladin’s cave of a location a simple execution of the brief was achieved for this series of clean minimal shots commissioned for medical software company Nervecentre.
Commissioned by Philosophy Design with creative director James Dicken on hand to art direct, the cove of the in house studio at Film + Medical was used to create these shots for the website.
With Hospital locations increasingly difficult & expensive to access for shoots, Film + Medical proved to be an ideal location to achieve the desired look.
Turn around from the cove and behind the camera was a fascinating environment with all sorts of artifacts old and new from the medical profession as well as various sets around the building and an amazing stock of props. A great resource for any shoot of a Medical nature, all in the usual non descript building on a west london trading estate. Mind you, parking was easy!
Visit the Nervecentre website to see more images from the shoot.
New Year, New website and the return of familiar subject matter.
It's always nice when clients come back for more and I started the year off very quickly, only 2 days after the festivities, with a trip to Germany to reacquaint myself with the Paper and Cardboard manufacturing process courtesy of Smurfit Kappa.
Further trips to Denmark and Italy were undertaken, followed by some UK shoots in Bristol, Cumbria and Chelmsford before adding some symmetry to the job by finishing back in the Industrial Heartland of Germany.
I seem to be going there quite a bit these days.
Oh yes, an economy that seems to be working. Wouldn’t that be nice, if somewhat unfamiliar.
Fascinating places as usual, Hot and humid mostly with cardboard and paper flying past at a rate of knots, sometimes covered in ink or rippling to create a corrugated layer.
A procession of hard hat hair moments and health and safety briefings were negotiated, but plenty of fun was had on the way to creating a lovely set of pictures for a great client to use in this years annual report and a lot more besides. You can find a selection of previous images shot for this client here.
