David O'Coimin is a man with a mission - to create more user friendly, collaborative and productive spaces for working environments - but it goes deeper than that. David's proposition is that the uses for his Nook mobile meeting pod are only limited by the user's imagination. And that was where Story Photography came in. After a chance meeting, David asked me to photograph his pods at Bristol & Bath Science Park, and to help show the Nook's flexibility in different settings. We had a fun evening with pizzas and beers and thanks to the volunteer models who brought the pods to life.
The Society of Light & Lighting are always looking for ways to promote the benefits of good lighting, and a plan to light up nine heritage locations around the UK seemed like too good an opportunity to miss for some great photographs. I hot footed it to the Ironworks at Blaenavon, part of the Blaenavon World Heritage site, where Hoare Lea Lighting used (amongst other fittings) hundreds of LED tea lights to light the site, each light being wrapped in a piece of paper with the name of a former worker written on it. Some quick editing meant I was lucky enough to see some of these images featured in magazines and also on the BBC One Show.
Story Photography has recently completed a marathon photoshoot in and around Edinburgh for Eastern Western Motors, who are Scotland's leading privately owned motor group. The shoot was commissioned specifically for use in a new induction presentation being prepared by Bristol Based The Prezenter, using Prezzi software. We visited 19 sites in four days, shooting buildings, operations and staff, covering brands from BMW to Harley Davidson. Our client is delighted with the results and we can't wait to see the finished presentation.
Harmsen Tilney Shane have completed another high quality and impeccably detailed fit-out in London - for 39 Essex Chambers, and Story Photography were honoured to photograph the project. I always know that a commission for HTS will be a joy to photograph, and this was no different, suffice to say that barristers' reputation for large volumes of paper was proven to be true!
