Beate collaborated with a team of filmmakers to produce this exquisite video worthy of a stint on the TV as a true Ad campaign.

By the end of the shoot, the team, the studio and almost every inch of equipment were caked in glitter. Not a bad way to spend your day…

Nostalgia is Beates latest personal series.

Produced part in camera, then finished in retouch. It harmonises studio shot flowers, fabrics and lens flare with naturally captured images of the sky.

Beate comments ‘ I was inspired by the emotional and visual interpretation of smell and memory. I am intrigued by their strong and profound link with each other. This is my attempt to visualise the deep longing, to understand our emotions, nature and life in the universe itself. It is about the fleeting glimpses of discovery, insights and forgetting again.’

New personal work from Beate in collaboration with stylist Gemma Therese Pearce.

This series aims to inspire the possibility of new and futuristic flavours, in endlessly exciting combinations. The use of sculptural forms and directional lighting, similar to that of an exhibition piece, is used to dramatise the scene.

Beate creates evocative water worlds in her newest personal project, titled ‘Escape’.

The body of work focuses on surface and textures. The submerged flowers and other living elements symbolise purity, whilst the rippling water visualises distractions in life, concealments to the truth, or desires.

The distortion of objects serves as a reminder that the human experience could never be one dimensional.

New personal project from Rob Lawson.

With the ambition of creating visuals that drench its audience, Rob uses a macro lens and gets super up close and personal with the drinks. Smoke machines, olives, and a few well-timed splashes later, Rob stops to repeat the process with another mixer.

Gala perfume is the latest series to emerge from Peters collaboration with Gala Magazine. The blend of still life photography and moving image creates complications of its own but Peter and his team circumnavigate these to build in a complicated set of shattered glass.

Beate made her way to the origins of Royal Salute’s special edition, Kew Palace.

In the midsts of winter, Beate layered light to create rays of warmth to emulate the rising of the sun over Kew and a 28 Gun Royal Salute.

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.

Peter was commissioned by Royal Salute for a series of inspiring images that depict a glorified scene from the brands’ history.

Each of these illustrated depictions draws on different aspects, worlds & cultures the product has reached, to portray this the illustration outstretches the front door framing. The concepts are intended to engage and bring alive a new range of packaging, this was achieved by creating worlds of wonder on set.

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.
