I decided that I needed to start photographing more products to add to my portfolio. Shoes were chosen and photographed. backgrounds were made in 3d and the image of the shoe's were layered into the 3d environment .
I bought this classic Olympus very cheaply at a car boot sale. I just think it is so lovely and I wanted to dignify it in a photograph.
Made these items just as winter hits hard here in the UK ... just in time for Christmas ! I know.. should be making something more Christmas like !
I am particularly pleased with the texturing of the ice and the cone !
I have spent a lot of my time in a part of the world where communism was pretty much the only way to think. Now that's not the case and democracy ( of a sort ) rules. But much of the every day architecture of communism still exists and people don't simply have the vision, money or drive to change and move forward. These buzzers mark entry to the door ways of a set of apartments in a typical tower block in a town called Pitesti in Romania.
I created the whole scene in CGI with my ever developing skill set . The Idea came from a gun image that is used in a graphic sense to advertise gun shops in America. I just made the idea more 3 dimensional ! I was again testing Neon type lights.
I have been testing Neon lights in CGI using Modo 901 by The Foundry. My understanding of light really comes into play in this field. As I light the scene and arrange things in the same way as i would in creating any photograph.
A beautiful brief for a very tasty product. Made for a great start to 2015.
Its amazing how beautiful this very special Broccoli can be when photographed close up.

I hadn’t worked with Richard and Mark since they had left Weiden Kennedy. Great guys to work with as they really appreciate quality. So their idea of creating hand crafted detailed artwork ( via Richard at Andy Knight’s) required some research and specialist printing. We made three ads and also some moving image, more can be seen on my web site.
Ribena with M and C Saatchi was great. I hadn’t shot moving liquid before. So it was nice to do something different. Lots of retouching was involved at the end of the day. Seeing the 48 sheet posters was great I had always wanted to do a Ribena shoot.
