My latest work for Just Eat has been up and around the country for the last few weeks, it was shot for the lovely guys at The Red Brick Road.

The shoot was lots of fun with a studio full of popadoms and the smell of cooking king prawns! We all snacked well that day!

The just eat app has been very useful too as we moved into our new house recently and finding the best takeaways was great as it’s taken a while to unpack all the kitchen stuff!!

Happy and healthy new year

Happy New year to you all, so here we are another year, hope everyone has a happy and prosperous one!

The end of last year was a very busy one work wise, so much so I didn’t get a chance to blog much so after this one I’m going to post all my latest news in a flurry of posts, so i apologies in advance!

So Kale is the latest super food and I was delighted to help promote Florette’s new salad baby kale for the Now agency.

Creative director Lee Smith came up with some great ads and when I saw the layouts I knew they were right up my street.

It was a fun and very healthy shoot with lots of lovely baby kale left over for us all to have lots of very healthy salads in the days that followed!

The finished ads are running now in magazines and on 48 sheet posters. Grab a bag and help that healthy start to the new year 😉

Christmas all wrapped up.

Before Christmas I was asked by BBH to shoot a Christmas poster for British airways. It was great to work with Harry Orton and Robin Warman again, they came up with a clever idea to use the belts as a bow.
The poster was used on their 96 sheet poster site that welcomes people as they arrive at Heathrow airport as well as 48 poster sites.

Don’t forget it!

Last month I shot the latest Marmite campaign for Adam & Eve DDB with creative team – Tom Webber and Nick Sheppard.

It has to be one of the most enjoyable shoots I’ve worked on for a long time, from start to finish. Sometimes you get layouts sent through and you can tell straight away that it’s going to be a great ad, this was no exception. It’s such a clever and simple idea, and the way they wanted it shot was right up my street!

All the guys from A&EDDB and Marmite were great to work with. It was a fun couple of days shoot, if not a little sticky at times! (I’ve just about got the smell of Marmite off my Camera gear).

Wesley West had a great time making all the prop products that are in the cupboards. I helped out by shooting the food photography for the packaging, I couldn’t resist having my photo’s in one of my photos!

The TV ads they’ve created are also great and very funny and are causing a bit of a stir right now, as you’ve probably seen!

My posters are going up around the UK on 48 sheet posters and 6 sheet – keep an eye out for them.

Why not visit the Marmite site and help end Marmite neglect!
But don’t report us here, I promise we will get through all of theses soon enough!

My latest work for Esso is now running on 48 and 6 posters in the U.K.
The shoot was commissioned by DDB London working with Art director Matt Lee and copywriter Brian Ridley.
One of my first ever commissions was for Lego 12 years ago so was great to be working with Lego again.
