These energised images were created for STRYYK.

The brief; to create fun and energetic visuals for customers to visualise a night out with a non-alcoholic drink.

Colorama sets the tone across these images as STRYYK is poured through the frame.

Rob shot this series of dark images from a bar corner for Don Papa. Using spotlights and a layering technique, Rob intensifies the colour of liquid and intensity of shadows.

Macallan commissioned Rob for a series of images to promote Macallan 12 & 18-year-old blends. The bar lounge location was selected to portray a lighter spirit with excellent length. Rob and the team used the lighting set up to create extra interest through the use of flare & rays.

Rob’s latest commission for Southern Comfort harnesses drinks texture to create a series of mouthwatering drinks.

Lens flare and warm gels go towards giving the set build a summer’s evening feel.

JWT – New York commissioned Rob for the new Grand Marnier campaign.

The team spent two days in London bars capturing signature Grand Marnier cocktails, beginning with the Grand Sidecar. Also on the hit list was; Grand Collins, Grand Margarita, Grand Tonic, Grand Man Tai and Grand Old Fashioned.

5cc in Farringdon and The Kennsington’s K-Bar played host to the shoot, each boasting a grand atmosphere in their own right. But for added dynamism, the bar talent had to place the finishing touches across all cocktails.

To celebrate summer and their new campaign, Tanqueray commissioned Rob for a series of slick serves. They also captured something a bit more bubbly in the shape of a lime falling through liquid… G&T anyone?!

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

With this in mind, Rob photographed bottles and serves in situ. Campfires, picnics, and rock pools are but a few of the places the team ventured to capture Jura’s familiarity.

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.
