European Energy Label Commission

It is a great pleasure to announce this news. In the fall we were contacted by the European Energy Bureau about creating some custom light painting images to go with the release of the new European energy label. It proved to be a really fun project and you can see some of how they were used here. The press release for the new energy symbol is here.
First up was to make some light painting tool that would create something similar to the energy symbol the European Energy Bureau uses to grade various products on their energy efficiency.
We started with color matching the symbol

A 110 volt AC powered LED bar was used as the base light

The set up was powered with a portable lithium battery

A stencil was needed to create the arrow shapes in the energy symbol

The finished set up looking pretty crappy but it certainly did the job

Shooting various patterns on black would give ideal elements for them to overlay other photos.

As well as the above designs we created a variety of headers and banner images for their various SNS channels and website.

All in all a very fun project that we are proud to be a part of. For those who missed the links at the top of the article you can see  how they were used here.  The press release for the new energy symbol is here.

Dicks everywhere!!

Japan is Buddhist country and has temples and shrines for everything. Included in these are several fertility shrines buried deep in their forests. They are hidden due to the embarrassing nature of the visitors. People that usually come here to pray are having trouble conceiving.

Sachi Amma

It was a pleasure to meet and photograph the worlds number 2 ranked outdoor climber, Sachi Amma. He won the 2012 and 2013 world cup lead climbing competitions cementing his place as the worlds best indoor climber before focusing on the great outdoors. He has climbed over ten routes this year alone!

Vertigo

So a few rock climbers came down to Okayama to take a shot at Karachi. An unforgiving climbing route that only a handful of people(7 to be exact) have been able to climb. We were asked to document it and of course we jumped at the chance. We look forward to posting some of the shots we got this day!

Okinawa Video Seminar

Late last night I returned from a great weekend away in Okinawa, catching up with friends and teaching video techniques and tips. All in all it was a great weekend, and a shame that it had to end so soon, as we’d only scratched the surface on different techniques and editing programmes.

Images now available for licensing!

As most of you know, we work closely with Getty Images. It is a very unusual case as we not only work with them on creative stock and video, but we also cover news for them. Come next year, we will possibly be putting out a big event as collaborators. It really is exciting working with such a world renowned company.

“Your photos are beautiful, you have an amazing camera”

“Your photos are beautiful, you have an amazing camera” or words to that effect, are words that probably most photographers have heard countless times from friends, family or random strangers. It doesn’t take into account the numerous hours spent planning, shooting and editing said photos and simply gives all the credit to the click of a button.
