Options For Adverts And Posters

Here are the initial proposed adverts and posters from a days model (Thea) shoot earlier this month. The client will choose two or three from the set of options offered. I particularly liked image ‘hi res ads-2‘ featuring Thea’s mane of hair to create a fantastic look. H

Panoramic, The South Bank – Image of the Month – May 2013

Here’s the latest view of The South Bank from the roof of 80 Strand in London. The client wanted this fantastic and exclusive panoramic view at twilight from the building they are marketing. The weather was perfect and this image was stitched together using seven images taken on a professional panoramic tripod head for accurate alignment of frames. Enjoy, H


Tea for One – Image of the Month – April 2013

Tea for one is advertising my clients woollen shawl, it a good exercise of photographing and comping together the three elements  of the base, body and neck to create this quirky image. Thew client loved it saying it has come out even better them they hoped. It’s always nice to please a client and be appreciated. Harry.

Shoot Across Europe – 22 Cities in 25 Days

I’ve just completed a demanding project photographing prime high street retail properties right across Europe for Redevco Real Estate Management. Over a five week period we worked to a tight schedule of planes, trains and taxis in nine countries, working in twenty two cities across Europe over twenty five days. Each property needed internals, externals and local lifestyle photography. It was full on work at each site, getting the job in the can (whatever the weather), then navigate to the next plane or train. In between shooting I used my iphone to snap whatever caught my eye whilst on my journeys. I love being able to use the iphone as a creative snappy camera, you actually get those quirky images that you normally just say “that would make a good picture”. Anyway this is my selection of iphone images from my megatrip. By the way, it’s also damn useful for instant communication!!! Cheers, Harry

Triumph in the cold!!!

The recent 2013 model shoot for Triumph was in a very cold Norfolk.

The team was Gareth from Triumph who oversaw the production of the  shoot, Mark Hynds on art direction duty, modelling were Zoe and Mark, the lovely assistant Steve on lighting/equipment plus me behind camera.

The sun was added by assistant Steve using a double warm gelled Quadra head directed at the lens just off frame. This obviously didn’t warm the models, so we had a plentiful supply of good humour from everyone (and the car heating on full blast).

We produced some great shots and Gareth emailed some positive feedback which is always great to hear.

“Mate, love them, they are even better than I remember! Thank-you for a great two day photo-shoot it was a pleasure working with you, I’m so pleased with the clothing brochure and I believe it to be better than any previous version” – Gareth Bright.

Here are some snaps from Steve and some pages from the finished brochure. H

Yorkshire Post Abstraction – Image of the Month – January 2013

On a recent commission to produce internal and external images of The Yorkshire Post in Leeds, I couldn’t resist finding some abstraction angles of this “Marmite” building. At the twilight hour I noticed the austere car park lighting illuminating the external, perfect to help create this abstract angle of seventies concrete design. I like Marmite by the way! H.
