LPA Photographers / Iain Crockart / Captain Fawcett Limited

July 3, 2014

LPA photographer Iain Crockart recently shot these stills from a short film for Captain Fawcett Limited at Carter Steam Fair.

Iain’s fondness for facial hair has become something of a theme in his work of late – his side project Captain Fawcett Limited has become hugely successful as a “purveyor of the finest quality gentleman’s grooming requisites”.  The film was created to promote their Expedition Strength Moustache Wax and portrays a strongman who thought he had lost his strength until he discovered the product.

The authenticity of Iain’s vintage aesthetic here ensures the resulting images are convincing and captivating in equal measure.  Looking forward to seeing the finished film, great work!

LPA Photographers / Iain Crockart / Steampunk

June 6, 2014

LPA Photographer Iain Crockart presents a different and exciting offering with his new collection of images titled ‘Steampunk’.

Always one for the unique and unorthodox, the adventurous side to Iain’s character comes out in these dramatic shots of the Frome Steampunk gathering. According to Iain’s website “Steampunk is a subgenre of speculative fiction, usually set in an anachronistic Victorian or quasi-Victorian alternate history setting. It could be described by the slogan “What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner.”

The clever mix of science ficton, fantasy and horror encourages an imaginative reception and we think the combination of fascinating costumes, powerful lighting and captivating expressions are sure to make an impact!

LPA Moving Image / Iain Crockart / A Bullet Across Rajasthan

March 19, 2014

The ever intrepid Iain Crockart recently journeyed to Rajasthan to combine two of his greatest passions, motorbikes and photography, well in this case video!

Travelling on 500cc Royal Enfield Bullets, Iain ventured through the vast deserts of Rajasthan as well as the bustling cities which fill the region. Iain said of the trip, ‘The smiling waving children, the sweet chai, the road side dhaba’s for a lunch of what was available, the near misses and occasional impact with wildlife, the laughs around campfires lasting well into the night…. all part of the adventure’. We love this little video which shows an insight into life on a hog!

The Brief

LPA Photographer Iain Crockart was commissioned by Saatchi Masius for a great little campaign for the Edwardian Group London Training school ‘ED.G.E’. Known for photographing ‘real people’ in real environments but also used to big productions with a shoot crew, Iain was the perfect man for the job.

”Essentially we want to shoot EGL hotel employees (from chefs and porters through to management) with props that help to develop a narrative about key ‘behaviours’ that EGL want to promote. So an example could be a chef holding a map of Italy, to promote passionate behaviour. The narratives are currently being developed and we’d be interested in sharing the early drafts with you at some point, to get your input on how we can use props and lighting to best support the stories.

We’re hoping that we can shoot in around 3/4 weeks time and I’m estimating that we’ll need around 2 days.

To get the ball rolling from our side, my colleague Tom Rudge will be in touch to ask about day rates etc and as we move forward we can hopefully book in a kick-off meeting with you.”

Iain Crockart recently shot this interesting shoot for the Radisson Hotel Group training school ‘Edge’, with the skilful aid of LPA Style Charlie Cave, and  Claire Louise.

This shoot and advertising concept by Saatchi Masius combines the idea of how motivation in your personal life for a passion or hobby can improve performance in the professional workplace. Charlie’s imaginative styling and Claire’s attention to hair and make up definitely complements Iain’s expert eye behind the lens.

Iain Crockart / Captain Fawcett / Ricki Hall

November 7, 2013

Carrying on from yesterday’s hairy blog post from Victoria Poland, we present this recent shoot from Iain Crockart which combines three of his favourite things: photography, motorbikes and beards!

Shot for Captain Fawcett, a gentleman’s grooming range, Iain captured the fantastic Ricki Hall as a brooding biker who spends as much time looking after his facial hair as he does looking after his bike. Furnishing a range of products from moustache wax to shaving brushes, Captain Fawcett is a side project of Iain’s which has proven to be as popular as his photography. Don’t know how you have time to do it all Iain!
