Early in 2015, I had the pleasure of working with photographer Simon Stock to help create the launch images for the new Bentley Bentayga SUV.

Collaborating with Stock were the UK based post production studios, Mustard Post and Tank who joined forces especially for this.

Working closely with Mustard Post and Tank, I was responsible for the HDRI panoramic image capture and creation. Commonly referred to as domes.  These domes are an integral component for the CGI artists, allowing highly detailed real-world lighting to be used to light a scene.

At the beginning of June 2013, I was commissioned to retouch the limited edition Jacobs Creek Wimbledon Bottle just in time for the start of  Wimbledon.

The bottle and drinks were photographed by Rob Lawson and were used in and around London for both print and broadcast media.

Oli Kellett Go Ahead

In May this is year I worked on a campaign for McVitties Go Ahead, shot by Oli Kellett at Hoxton Studios In London.  It was the first time I had worked with Oli which was great fun. After meeting Oli at a Creatives Unite meetup in London, he remembered my specialities in creating multi-part compositions. On site comping was integral to the whole shoot.

Whilst running the digital capture, as we shot the different elements of the portraits I was able to comp them together very quickly. The benefits of this process means if something wasn’t working we could re-shoot it until it was.  The client was really happy as it meant we could move onto the next shot confident we have the last one in the bag.

Zeo Bottle Rob Lawson

Zeo was a big drinks campaign from last year I worked on. The main portrait was shot by David LaChapelle and the new Zeo bottle was photographed by Rob Lawson for the first time.

Working on set as the digital operator I was able to discuss in detail with the Art Directors, establishing a clear brief of what they wanted to achieve. This made the post production process run smoothly, delivering the final images on time for a tight deadline.

The Campaign was a huge success and was instrumental in bringing ZEO to the UK market.
