Oli was awarded a winner in the hugely competitive ‘Personal Work’ category at the PDN for this series exploring people at crossroads.
Drawing inspiration from some of the pioneers for Chicago street photography; Harry Callahan and Ray Metzker, his new collection continues the long tradition of documenting people within urban environments. The series was shot over a 12 month period across multiple US cities; LA, Miami, San Francisco, Chicago, New Orleans, Houston, New York and Atlanta.
With his shoestring budget, Oli stayed in hostels and spent his days walking the city streets with a minimal kit, to discover the subtle differences between people and places. Driven by the endless chance and a prevalent political crossroads for the American people.
We are all looking forward to the ceremony on the 25th June!
Guy continues his work with the Northern Ballet with this latest work for the Nutcracker.
The backplates were shot with snowfall at Glencoe in the Scottish Highlands. Talent was photographed in the studio and later composited to create these magical scenes for the Christmas season.
Erik travelled to Belvedere Palace, Vienna to capture an experience around the newest Crystal Cruises adventure, down the Danube River.
The series intends to depict how you FEEL arriving at the Belvedere Palace on one of the riverboats. It establishes an association with a feeling rather than a literal narrative.
– Erik –
“As we flew into Vienna, we knew it would be a dreary affair. The forecast had low cloud cover, fog and rain during the time we were there.
The Fog of the Danube River and the cold late winter weather was not going anywhere.
As a location photographer weather is always on my mind. We spend a lot of time planning our productions around weather patterns to make sure we can create the images we want without getting us and the client stuck on location.”
However, the team rolled with the poor weather and pitched en route shooting very early morning and late evening. This enabled the interior and artificial lights to light up the Palace, making the best of the bad weather.
This assignment was captured in 3 parts; The landscapes in Europe; people in Los Angeles; With the third layer created using CGI.
“The studio part was, in this case, a bit of a dance. Big dresses and a lot of movement where I’m observing, letting the talent be a part of the story and narrative rather than over-directing.
They move, I observe and capture.”

Peter shows us his talents are not limited to just the studio by taking motion cameras, installed in drones and flying them over Champagne Jean Josselin’s rolling hills. The final advert as you can see is exquisite.
Sheraton Hotel turned to Erik for their latest hyper real photography campaign through Venables Bell & Partners. All the images were shot using genuine employees adding a touch of authenticity.
Guy captures the emotive dancers of the Northern Ballet, to create a fairytale composite for Hans Christian Andersons Little Mermaid.

Oli is the Grand Prize winner with ‘Roosevelt Cable Car’ at this year’s PDN New York.
Taken from the Queensborough bridge through a gap in the wire mesh just large enough for a lens. It is accompanied by ‘Taxis and Man’ which also made it into the show.
However bleak it may seem in London with the turbulent weather, remember it’s even worse elsewhere.
These were taken up a mountain with Nigel hanging out the side of a helicopter…
Whilst shooting to showcase the premium outdoor gear from Arcteryx & Rab, Nigel uses the drone to capture these moody images.
