Talk at The&Partnership

Quite different from my usual shoots.

Havas Lynx Talk
Did a remote talk about my work for HavasLynx Manchester yesterday.
Did it over Zoom with about 20 creative listening in. It was organised
by my agent James and Sophia Shaw, Senior Creative Curator at Havas.
Lots of questions afterwards. Ended up with jaw ache!
Lockdown Natwest Ads
Well I have to say this has been one of the most unusual shoots I’ve ever done. Here we all are in lockdown and I get a call
asking about how we could do a photo shoot of NatWest employees, letting the public know that they were on hand to help out in
these strange times.
It’s a tricky one. How to do a shoot without actually being there? We also couldn't send anyone around to help set it up.
After some discussion it was decided to shoot these on the models own camera phones using family members or partners to act as the
photographer. Not an easy one for someone who has never photographed to a brief before.
So the team all logged onto Zoom and the shoot began.
Asked to do a lecture at the London College of Communication today for the BA(Hons) degree course.
