We supplied the shoot management for this RNLI ‘Keep In Touch’ campaign having been commissioned by Art Buyers and Agency, Proximity London.
The image has been used online on the RNLI website with the important and timeless message that ‘your support will save lives’.
Shot in the carpark of the RNLI HQ in Dorset, the people in the tick all either work or volunteer for the RNLI and even included individuals rescued by them.
With the help of runners from Bournemouth Art College, we brought the beach to the RNLI by laying sand on the ground. There were plenty of laughs as a cherry picker and megaphone were used to co-ordinate the tick formation so Photographer Howard Bartrop could get the perfect shot.
The aerial shot of the sea was taken using a drone over a beach in Norfolk before the two images were combined to create the final result!
We just about managed to keep our heads whilst out working with photographer Adam Hinton for Historic Royal Palaces recently!
Adam (Wyatt Clarke & Jones) shot some hair raising reenactment scenes at the Tower of London for their ‘unforgettable day out’ campaign that states ‘real drama doesn’t come in a box set…from the Kray twins to traitors and polar bears, the Tower of London has seen it all.’
A world away from all that drama was the shoot for The Empress and the Gardener, a current exhibition at Hampton Court Palace, presenting for the first time ever ‘a remarkable collection of watercolour paintings and drawings once owned by the Empress Catherine the Great of Russia’ and ‘vividly captures Hampton Court during the time when Capability Brown served there as Chief Gardener to King George III.’ It is on until 4 September 2016 and entrance to the exhibition is included with palace admission.
Locate Productions provided shoot production services for these summer stills campaigns that were used in advertising posters seen across the capital.
These great images are from the latest Peugeot 308 ‘Take a closer look’ campaign shot by Photographer Andy Glass. The images were used to promote their 48hr test drive option and were shot at a location we sourced in bonnie Scotland. … Continue reading →
We recently went underground and over rooftops with Photographer Shamil Tanna on this energetic shoot of some Parkour personalities. Shamil is an ascending star in his own right and is sought after for his portrait and campaign work, having captured many well known faces in the world of sport and beyond.
One of our urban Library locations provided the backdrop and platform for this display of athletic choreography, that at times appeared to defy the law of physics. The results were stunning frames of runners suspended in motion, as if frozen or held by an invisible force, that make you look twice.
According to Parkour UK ‘the sport originally termed Art du Deplacement, now also often referred to as Parkour or Freerunning, was founded in France in the 1980s by a group of nine young men.’
The urban streets and car parks of France seem the natural place for such a sport to be conceived and forged that reflects their national motto of ‘Liberté, égalité, fraternité’. This is not rebellion in action but freedom, vive le Parkour!
When Photographer Laura Pannack needed to find a slate quarry, for the back drop of one of her test shoots, she knew just where to look. We were able to help her find just what she was searching for in the Locate Productions library.
Laura, represented by Wyatt-Clarke & Jones, explains more about her work in Wales, and in particular her encounter with Hannah, in her ‘image of the week’ blog.
It was all action on this shoot to drum up awareness of charitable trust Team Rubicon UK recently! Created so that ex service men and women and other specialists could be put to good use, Team Rubicon ‘unites the skills and … Continue reading →
