Wolverhampton Grand Theatre Photo Shoot

I’ve always loved the theatre, so I was very excited when an opportunity came up to shoot a series of images for the Wolverhampton Grand and working with the fabulously creative people in their marketing team and their performers.

The shoot was all about selling the theatre rather than a specific show and the wide variety of entertainment and performances they produce, so no one genre could dominate the images. Working with their marketing team and their agency we’d recce’d and planned a series of images using characters from many of the genres they perform at the theatre.¬†As with all shoots where you have lots of elements coming together the whole team had to pull together to create the scenes we had planned and my two assistants Ben and Jack did a fabulous job of getting everyone and everything in the right place and on time.

TNT Magazine

Back in August last year, our friends at TNT UK called looking for a series of images of their new Swindon depot and the people who were in training to work there. It was a challenging shoot due to the contrast of the beautiful sunny day (not many of them last year) and relative dark of the warehouse facility. I knew before turning up that the trainees would all be knuckling down to learning their new roles and therefore the shoot would be very fluid so I’d planned my approach accordingly, going with the new Profoto B1 lighting system for its on camera control and lack of trip hazard wires, very important in a dynamic work area. The shoot was great fun, the lighting gear worked seamlessly and the trainees were fabulous and all helped out as much as they could.
