LPA Photographers / Julian Love / Hunter Design / Berkeley

March 3, 2015

LPA Photographer Julian Love was recently commissioned by residential development giant Berkeley (North East London) and project managed by Hunter Design to shoot for Berkeley’s brand new development, 250 City Road.

The crew visited some top spots around Shoreditch, capturing a mixture of lifestyle shots and portraits of local artisans. Enlisting the talents of stylist Charlie Cave and hair and make-up artist Claire Portman, the final shots look flawless.

The images look fantastic and we really enjoyed working with everyone at Hunter Design!

Dear Ask an Agent,

I recently quoted for a shoot for an ad campaign and have now been asked to go into the ad agency for a chemistry meeting. I wondered if you could tell me what this is it and what they will be expecting from me?

Culture Corner / What’s On / Spring

February 26, 2015

Our regular feature Culture Corner is back for Spring! Whether you’re in London or further afield, we’ve compiled a list of the best things to see and do this month…

Drawn by Light / Science Museusm
Sam: ‘The latest show to be held at the Science Museum’s Media Space is a must-see for anyone with an interest in the history of photography. Drawn by Light contains 200 fascinating treasures from the Royal Photographic Society, exploring the early experiments and structures that paved the way for something we all take for granted today. Visitors can see some of the earliest known photographic images such as Nicéphore Niépce’s heliographs, alongside work by some of the most influential contemporary photographers such as Martin Parr and Don McCullin.’ Drawn by Light will run until 1 March when it will move to the National Media Museum, Bradford 20 march – 21 June 2015.

Lynda Benglis / Hepworth Wakefield
Tom: ‘
Near my hometown of Leeds is the fantastic Hepworth Wakefield. As well as viewing the work of local born artist Barbara Hepworth, the current retrospective of Lynda Benglis is a must see if you’re up North. An undeniable icon of the feminist movement in the States, Benglis’ work spans everything from sculpture to photography, painting to ceramics and all points in between. Playing with her materials and their perceived qualities, the artist challenges perception and the way we look at sculpture as a static art form. Lynda Benglis at the Hepworth Wakefield runs until July 1st.

#IPHONEONLY: Julian Calverley / Snug Gallery
Cassie: LPA photographer Julian Calverley is soon to be exhibiting at Snug Gallery in the charming town of Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. Just over the hill from my hometown of Holmfirth, I’m planning to drop in when passing by and I’m really hoping to catch him between 28 – 29th March when he will be holding informal talks and Q&A sessions. I like the parallel in Julian’s painterly landscape images being displayed in the picturesque Pennine town, which I think has such stunning landscapes of it’s own. Of course my main draw is the use of the camera phone to capture these beautiful images, which are equally as atmospheric as his signature large-scale landscapes. It’s rare that a photograph allows you to take a breath of fresh air yet Julian achieves it with each picture.

Rubens and his Legacy / Royal Academy of Arts
Lisa:I’m looking forward to seeing Rubens and his Legacy at the Royal Academy of Arts this month. Divided into six themes, the show sees his own masterpieces sitting alongside those of the many artists he influenced, from Picasso to Rembrandt. It looks to be a fascinating exhibition that demonstrates Rubens’ range and influence across art from the 17th century up to the present day.’

Christian Marclay / White Cube
Jonathon: ‘Best known for The Clock, his twenty four hour video the Guardian described as “a masterpiece of our times”, Christian Marclay is back at White Cube. This time he is showing at the cavernous Bermondsey branch with a multi-disciplinary show involving everything from video projections, animations and paintings to a series of collaborative performances with contemporary musicians. One of the main themes is booze and with Pub Crawl, Marclay documents his early morning weekend strolls through Shoreditch with a collection of half empty pint glasses, wine glasses and cans of lager. This show is in no way similar to The Clock but it’s already been billed as the show of the year by journalists.’ Christian Marclay is at White Cube Bermondsey until April 12.

LPA Photographer Liz McBurney has been busy shooting several clever personal projects lately, adding to her witty concept-driven body of work.

Liz is primarily a still-life photographer but is well known for shooting food and drink in unexpected, highly creative ways. In this series she worked with food stylist Neus Monté Perlas to create the shapes of countries out of the drinks they are famous for – tea for England, coffee for Italy and wine for Spain. Lovely work Liz!

LPA Photographers / Ray Massey / Chromedia / Porsche

February 9, 2015

LPA Photographer Ray Massey was recently commissioned by Chromedia to shoot these dynamic images for Porsche.

Whilst Ray is best known for his impressive catalogue of studio work with drinks brands, he is as comfortable shooting out on location. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of their historic win of the historic Targa Florio road race, Porsche have produced the anniversary Cayenne GT2 II GTS. Ray shot the car on a road trip from the Porsche engine plant in Stuttgart, to Dr Ferry Porsche’s Design studio in Zel am See and over the notorious Grossglockner high Alpine pass in the Austrian Alps before driving to the Sicilian mountain site of the famous road race circuit. We love these energetic images which capture the true power of the Porsche engine.

LPA Futures / Catching Up With Holly Pickering

February 3, 2015

With the deadline for LPA Futures 2015 fast approaching (February 13th), we wanted to catch up with Holly Pickering on her time as part of the Futures programme. Here is what she had to say…

- Hi Holly! Firstly what made you want to enter LPA Futures back in 2013?
I was at the point of thinking seriously about leaving my previous career in fashion to make the leap into becoming a full time photographer, and LPA Futures looked like a great platform to gain exposure within a really competitive industry, and also a great opportunity to benefit from LPA’s experience and hopefully develop my work as much as possible.

- How did you feel when you were selected as one of the winners?
Surprised as I never expected to make it to the final five, but really delighted as I knew it was going to be a huge opportunity!

- Have the two years lived up to what you were expecting?
Definitely, I think the first six months were a big learning curve as it’s a struggle getting your name out there initially, but I’ve been really lucky to have built up a great client list with LPA’s help and have been really busy shooting  – and it’s been great to see how much my work has developed looking back over the two years of the programme.
