Barry Sanders, RG 3, Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart…. four legends of American football…. and a massive grizzly bear. This commission from the folks over at TBWA Chiat Day L.A was so much fun to shoot. As with a lot of these things the sporting personalities were on a super tight deadline…. throw in a full blown TV commercial on the same day and as you can imagine…. timing and logistics were paramount. The day was micro managed down to the last second. We had three sets simultaneously running so we could quickly hop into the right place should TV make some last min changes to their schedule. It was a crazy day but our team pulled it off…. and we had some fun at the same time…..

I’m flying back to London, working on this series and thinking about William Eggleston’s ‘Democratic Forest’
I guess Eggleston in that book was trying to be free from the constraints of working to a particular self imposed brief.. and instead just allowed himself to take pictures.
I think I was unintentionally doing the same thing yesterday when I shot these. I just wanted to spend a day taking pictures of things that I was attracted to and work with the colour of each individual image as opposed to trying to explore a theme.
So Mr Eggleston… Thankyou for continuing to inspire me to explore and learn.

The end of last year saw us shooting in Miami. Southbeach is jam packed full of the most amazing art deco buildings. This is ‘Firestone complete auto care’ … and we love that typeface…..

We’re extremely happy to have been asked to shoot Zurich for McCann Worldwide.
The campaign was shot in L.A. where we worked with some great model makers and location scouts.
CGI was expertly handled by Recom Farmhouse…. we leave it up to you to guess which elements were done in post !
Colour work : Layer1

I’m on a mission at the moment to to get all the work we have shot over the last few months up on the blog. It’s been a crazy time that has seen us shooting in Beijing, St Moritz, L.A, New York, Miami, Cosa Rica, the French Alps and Nepal. Here is the beginning of a lovely campaign for Nissan that we shot in Barcelona.
It’s so nice to work on print where the type and art direction is so minimal. Art directors Braulio Kuwabara and Fabio Abram wanted the image to do the talking…… Bravo !

Pullman Hotels for DDB Paris.
It’s not every day that you get to stand ankle deep in a warm infinity pool and photograph the sunset. So when we got the call from DDB asking if we’d like to shoot Pullman hotels in Jakarta and Phuket we were pretty excited !
Brilliantly art directed by Jenna Haugmard and Arnaud Viallaneix

At the end of last summer we put on our crampons, grabbed the Alpa and a rope, and headed up the Mer de Glace, a seven kilometre river of ice that flows from the summit of Mont Blanc.

I’ve been hankering to play with black and white lately. Thinking about fusing something contemporary with the classic. Here’s the first of what might turn into an interesting project.
