It’s funny how every Annual Report season seems to end up homing in on a particular sector. This year for me it seems to be all things related to Aviation.
This time of year it is not unusual for me to spend a lot of time in airports and on various aircraft but not necessarily in the Jump Seat!
This years Report & Accounts for ASL Aviation threw everything at me.
From standing on the roof at Charles de Gaul airport in Paris, on a freezing cold February night, photographing cargo planes being loaded.
Sniffer dogs prowling up and down lines of freight to be cleared for loading.
To maintenance crews on the apron at Shannon Airport carrying out various pre flight checks.
Oh, and did I mention lots of shots of planes.
Further images from the project can be viewed in context here.
Another project took me up to Edinburgh for Carnegie Orr, to shoot portraits of a selection of John Menzies personnel who work in and around the Airport.
Baggage handlers, check in staff and various other characters around the business were photographed for use throughout this years Annual Report. You can see some of the resulting spreads below.
