AMEC is one of the world’s leading engineering, project management and consultancy companies and they need, want and get the best. This FTSE 100 company has customers such as BP, Shell, EDF and National Grid to name just a few and employs 29,000 people globally.

One of the cores of their philosophy is a belief in people, investing in training and development, promoting teamwork and the sharing of knowledge and best practice as well as recognising the power of diversity. It was my pleasure to work with them on some new imagery for their graduate recruitment program and to imbue these values into the images. I’m glad to say we achieved that thanks to a great team at AMEC and some honest hard graft!

David (seen pictured here) is a bright and determined consultant working in the medical sector. Head practitioner at The David Laszlo Partnership he is driven to providing excellence. Not unlike me! It was a pleasure to be asked by the good folk down at Create Marketing to shoot this for DLP as everyone involved worked hard and well towards making the images work.

Just finished a very enjoyable production with Lloyds Banking Group. Working in turn with their clients to create some strong human focused imagery, based around honest graft, the imagery is supporting email and online campaigns as well as brochure support and a print ad campaign being rolled out as I write, courtesy of the excellent Rainey Kelly . It was a great pleasure working with the Lloyds Team and special mention to Paul Cromwell for steering us through so ably. A joy to have the opportunity to meet and photograph some of their great client companies. Baking, engineering, scaffolding and  composting! among the excellent entrepreneurial endeavours [try saying it!] that we covered.

So a big thank you to all the nice folk from all the client co’s who helped out on this one, some great folk out there !!!

Rufus Leonard have just revamped the British gas web site, and a very nice job they have made of it. Part of this process was a chilly December shoot with yours truly to get some imagery. Here is just a few of the images we made over just two days.

These are from a project I worked on just before Christmas and has now rolled out over 64 locations around the country on huge banners, posters and totems. I polished off my special hard but soft light (!!) and used the inherent lack of depth of field of medium format to create the feel. What was nice about this is the result is very much a team effort from a great client contact, nice one Katie, through to excellent account management and creative direction from the agency Rufus Leonard. The subjects themselves (all 15 of them!) to a man/woman could not have been more patient whilst we tweaked in the tight lighting requirements. These are the real people not models.

Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together.

This is the very nice and accommodating Helen on the floor of Lloyds Banking Group trading floor which she is responsible for. I shot this on the amazing Canon 200mm F2 which is a monster of a lens and will set you back about £5K. This is shot at F2 which has a depth of field shallower than a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother.. The Canon 200mm F2.8 lets in half the light and is 5x cheaper but there is something so creamy and lovely about F2 (apart from getting you out the poo when the light is failing) that its worth it. (don’t tell the family that this is where the holiday money went!)

I’ve been shooting a lot with Lloyds recently both for the current ad campaign featured in the business supplement in the Times newspaper and also as collateral for their web site. It’s been an interesting project with visits to some of the UK’s major business’s such as Virgin, Innocent Smoothies, Dairy Crest, Hotel Chocolat amongst others, we have been shooting the real Lloyds business advisors with the CEO’s and finance directors of these blue chip companies…

…here’s a couple of examples from the work.

The very nice Maria from Lloyds Corporate markets was kind enough to stick a Pace and Power book in the post which arrived this morning. All part and parcel of Lloyds 2012 Olympics work which I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot a couple of portraits for – including Lord Sebastian Coe and the extremly nice CEO of BT Global Services Jeff Kelly.
