Proper Coffee. Now in a can. - Costa Coffee

I was recently commissioned by BBH London to shoot a new Costa Coffee product for an outdoor advertising campaign. The can’s were still in their prototype phase, and we didn’t have a lot of product to shoot, so we had to make sure that we got it right first time!!

Thanks to Luke for expert spritzing skills, and to everyone at BBH, for making it all go so smoothly.

Serve

Some new work I recently made, looking at the idea of “the perfect pour”, it started with an illustration on the back of a Duvel bottle. The illustration demonstrated how the glass should be held at 45 degrees, and the beer poured steadily into the glass, and it got me thinking… how far could you take this scientific approach?…

New work with Owen Gildersleeve for the Fresh Future Awards 2019

Some highlights from a couple of shoots I worked with Owen Gildersleeve, for the launch of the Fresh Future ’19 Awards.  Owen was asked to interpret the 4 categories of awards (Carbon, Bronze, Silver & Gold), and we worked together to bring these hand-crafted rock and mineral forms to life, in a series of other worldly sets.  Enter the awards now, at freshfuture.site

Disphotic

This series of pictures came out of a recent collaboration with floral stylist Kasia Borowiecka.  The Dis (lacking) Photic (light) zone in oceanography, refers to the layer of the ocean where only a small amount of light reaches, where lifeforms exist in perpetual twilight.

Thanks to Kasia, and Mai Kittipanwanich for the excellent floral styling, and to Dennis Post Production.

With the recent launch of Goose Island’s session beer, “Midway”, we were asked to photograph the can and various animations for its launch. It’s all over London right now!

Thanks to Mother (London) and Wellcom London for the commission.
