In a dark corner of TT Liquor, Shoreditch, Nigel takes portraits of real bartenders for Makers Mark new campaign ‘Make your Mark’.

The whole project was conceived to challenge the viewer into making their own mark.


Rob was delighted to be commissioned to shoot both Stills & Motion for Jack Daniel’s through JWT Puerto Rico and South American Production company Rocket to the Moon.

Pulling together a highly skilled team so that the 2 set up’s could be shot in tandem, it was a long day of precision, close up shooting. The added excitement of having Coca-Cola in the mix meant for an eagle-eyed production, involving motion markers and specific colour matching.

Everything was shot on specially made surfaces and using lighting set up’s that matched each execution for both stills and motion.

The fantastic results are out now across both JWT and Jack Daniel’s South American social media streams.



The creative behind this shoot was all about, heritage, nature and maintaining a connection with your origins.

Rob made haste to Portugal with Drambuie for a new lifestyle drinks campaign on rooftops and by the sea. The warmer climate was a welcome change in the peak of winter.

Rob designed the series to intrigue and emphasise the craft of making a ‘proper’ cocktail. The series was also awarded a winner at the 2017 AOP awards.

Rob shot this series for Treasury Wine Estates by creating a French artisan aesthetic using glassware/chairs/surfaces. TWE commissioned the shoot to promote their unique acquisition of various Champagne/Red/White wine estates across various regions of France.

Rob photographed a library of images for The Glenlivet at the start of 2017. Through the year the contents have slowly made their way up on social media but our favourite has just launched.

It took Rob two days, two locations and a many more props to create 20 images celebrating the years’ festivities.

Rob was on location for Johnnie Walkers special release ‘Ghost & Rare’.

These whiskies are crafted from ‘ghost’ distilleries that have long since closed, together with other rare malt and grain.

Rob shot this series of party inspired images for Absolut Vodka.

The creative around the shots was inspired by the Christmas limited edition bottle, which this year had a coat of shimmer sequins which changed colour depending on which way they faced. It was all about the party…
