Amit & Naroop’s personal project ‘Urban Forager’ focusses on substance abuse.

Up and down the country, little silver canisters can be spotted thrown across the urban landscape of major cities. They contain Nitrous Oxide or ‘laughing gas’ and are made in Taiwan for the catering industry.

Inhaled via the use of a balloon, this NOZ gas is being used by teenagers across the UK as a drug. It is seen as a gateway drug, leading users onto more dangerous and addictive drugs.

These images form part of an exhibition called The Urban Forager curated by designer Michelle Lowe Holder, to be shown at The London Design Festival in September. The campaign highlights the material waste caused by the use of NOZ and the consequences it has on the environment.

Beate photographed this series of images for Swarovski under the watchful eye of many burly looking security guards!

Light and shadow were used to define the shape of the product and emphasise sparkle. Watch this space because the jewellery shots are yet to be released.

Elise’s winning image at Life Framers ‘THE HUMAN BODY’.

“Elise’s composition seems effortlessly elegant – a flawless landscape of rolling female forms, like sand dunes. It’s both subtle and sensual, captured in muted grey and soft candy pink – It’s compelling in its simplicity.” Life Framer.

The latest personal project from Beate. ‘Stream of time’ is an examination on the passage of time, the stop-motion clips consist each of between 42 – 94 stills.

The music that accompanies the back and forth motion was specially composed to flow and unite sound and vision.

Claudalie was shot for Sunday times. Beate uses her signature lighting style to create waves of light that sweep across the scene, the pastel background is interjected by focal light formed by light passing through small clear beads sprinkled around the set.

Elise’s new personal project ‘Heavenly Creature’ centres around the natural. Sunlight bounces into frame from below the model, softening the harder shadows that can form in daylight settings.

This series also signifies a move away from studio beauty and into a slightly more loose, naturalistic beauty.

Nigel shot this series of bikers in the Autumn whilst traveling with friends in the UK. The use of natural light displays Nigel’s genuine ability to capture feeling whilst being light on the foot.

 

Rob’s recent commission for Hendricks Gin got him creating a miniature & magical botanist garden table in his very own studio!

With the prop stylist sourcing all kinds of weird and wonderful objects, the team set to work creating a few quirky motion clips to accompany the final photographs.

Beate uses light refractions in the latest Lumene campaign. The still life images draw on mineral elements and feature alongside the beauty images.

Peter was commissioned to produce these ornate dishes for The French Milk Cooperative to promote French produce and French cuisine!
