When I was recently asked to design some graphics for packaging I threw my kit in the car and headed off to Bedfordshire. This photo forms the ground roots for the final design. I had already decided on an incomplete sketch design and needed a photo as reference.
Here's the final design for the logo element.
Relaxing on the sand dunes in Northam Burrows, North Devon waiting for the sun to go down. Camera set up, only thing missing is a nice glass of wine.
I was quite pleased with the final result especially as the dog walker gives a feeling of scale.
I got a call from a previous customer the other day asking for his new system to be photographed. It's great when the customer's relaxed enough to have a bit of a laugh with you. They turned this product shoot into a fashion shoot. Need a camera in the back of my head so I don't miss anything:-)
I recently helped as tech advisor for a shoot in The Core, Corby where I took the opportunity to photograph the dance routine as it was filmed. Great fun but I had to race off the stage into the wings before the cameraman turned 360 to face me!
