Commissions

No words are necessary to make a connection.

Why use a photographer  – When you commission your own dedicated photo shoot the result is your own personal collection of imagery; photographs especially made for you.  The images will have your voice, your personality and you will be able to use them wherever you wish; across your social media, invites and of course for your website which is your shopfront. Oh and doing a shoot is fun! I’ve never finished a photo shoot where the client hasn’t been ready and excited to see the images as soon as they’re ready.

Here you can see some examples of my work – these jobs all started with a conversation about their identity, message and skills.

Client: Gold Park contemporary jewellery www.goldpark.co.uk

Gold Park, based in Lewes make fine contemporary jewellery from heirloom gold, Annie Slack and Susie her sister run this perfect venture. Annie is the designer and maker, she handcrafts the pieces made to order using traditional forging and shaping. Susie runs all the other important details.

Brief: To create lifestyle images for their website. During our pre shoot chat Annie said  “ I like the straightforward openness of your work”. Gold Park wanted an honest snap shot of a day in the life at the studio – working within the limits of their busy day, we came up with a nice selection which they have used in rotation on their website.

Kind words:

“It was a pleasure working with you Moose. After an initial conversation and emailing over a few examples of images I liked from your website you very quickly understood what we were after and the look we were trying to achieve. the shoot was very fun and quick and easy, I have complete faith in your photographic eye! We look forward to working with you again.”

Client: Brian Smith writer http://www.briansmithwriter.com/about

One of the great things about doing a “project” as opposed to a job is that there is so much FREEDOM to PLAY  and that then it may even lead to a  publication – like in this example of a cover for Brian Smith’s first book.

Client: ASK Restaurant in Oxford

This is another example of a ” day in the life of ” kind of job

Client: Miller-Bourne http://www.miller-bourne.co.uk

Brief: To create lifestyle images for their website

This job was about creating images for the company’s new website. Working together with James the art director from Ground Nation who designed the site, Miller Bourne wanted  good all round life style images of the designers, managers and admin staff at work. Showing them being creative efficient hard working and enjoying their environment. Miller Bourne are proud not only of their excellent standard of architectual work but also that the company provides a fun, secure and friendly atmosphere to work in, combining serious concentration and skill with a healthy amount of socialising thrown in for good measure. Great atmosphere = Great work !!!

The staff head shots all had to be taken at their offices during their busy schedules – so working with speed was essential here – not too much faffing around.

For this site I also shot a small film which adds a nice touch to their site.

Kind words from the Art director: 

“Hi Moose – Great to see the Miller Bourne project on your blog, thanks for supplying me with great images for their new website – you made what can all too often be ‘dry’ content, contemporary and fun! great work.”

Brief: Studio shoot with kids and toys used for publicity

Client: Terracotta Row

Terracotta Row are Amazing

The main man Saher came up with this brilliant idea to make bags out of recycled sailcloth – what makes this so unique is that every single bag has it’s own personality – no two bags are the same. Saher is a massively talented guy – watch out !!!

Kind words:

“Many thanks for the brilliant shots you took of me and my bags. They really captured something special which I’ve been able to share with the world on my website! Hope to work with you again in the future.”
