This shoot was commissioned by Fighting Fit magazine for its Olympics issue. James is an Olympic gold medallist (Beijing 08) and the current European Super-Middleweight Champion. Several sets of step-by-step exercise photos were shot at his training gym in addition to these portraits...

Briony's work currently explores biological themes, informed by her previous education in biochemistry. These portraits were shot at the Pangolin sculptors studio in London in the last week of her year there as its 'sculptor in residence'. The work she has created during this time will be shown in a solo exhibition at Pangolin London in January.

For the second time showing my portfolio of cover-to-cover location portraiture resulted in a commission to photograph and retouch product. 'Out of the Ordinary' is the strap-line for the ad's which will be placed in golfing magazines in several countries. This style of visual is the polar-opposite of that usually used for golf equipment advertising - Normally saturated blue skies & green grass compete with studio backgrounds & bright graphics.

These portraits were commissioned by a creative agency that specialises in food & drink brands. 70% of London's Chinese chefs use this particular stock powder.
The select for print ad's & POS is an accurate representation of the agency's pre-prod' visuals...
This is an alternative from the shoot that didn't make the cut...
The chef is a Chinese Masterchef of the Year. Straight after the shoot he prepared five stunning fusion courses for four of us. The food was so good we all plan on booking tables there soon.

Corporate photography sometimes has to work in a 'letterbox' format for Web page headers, and also full-frame for media such as annual reports and presentations. These examples were shot last Thursday in a newly renovated building. The client wanted the interior design to feature where possible. We have taken to describing this type of corporate photography as 'work-lifestyle', and the cropped format as 'banner shots'.

One of my earlier corporate portrait commissions was in the Summer of 2007. It was for three company directors. This shoot stood out at the time: I hired a room on the 23rd floor of Canary Wharf to meet the brief for a windowed blue sky background. The brief, based on a rival company's portraits, also dictated flat lighting, tight framing, off-camera direction and shallow depth-of-field.
We shot together again last month, this time using a room on a first floor of their commercial park in North London. The brief requirements were much more open this time. We needed to refresh but not completely revise the 2007 set...
