LPA Photographers / Iain Crockart / TT Riders

June 15, 2015

LPA Photographer Iain Crockart recently shot these rather daring TT riders, a difficult task when they’re travelling at 160mph!

A bike enthusiast himself, Iain’s passion has seen him travel the world, from the Himalayas to Arkansas to ride and shoot. Ian always impresses and we love how he has managed to capture the speed, dynamism and excitement of the sport.

LPA Photographers / Iain Crockart / Politics: The Painful Truth

April 20, 2015

LPA Photographer Iain Crockart has offered up his thoughts on the upcoming General Election in this derisive still life image.

Inspired by comedian Billy Connoly’s sentiment that ‘the desire to be a politician should ban you for life from ever being one’ and frustrated at the daily posturing and promising, he went looking for the spikiest bramble branch to illustrate his idea in his graphic and composed signature style.

LPA Photographers / Iain Crockart / Captain Fawcett

January 9, 2015

In addition to being a talented photographer, Iain Crockart has a keen interest in all things facial hair with his joint business venture, Captain Fawcett.

Creating bespoke beard oils, waxes and other great products, Captain Fawcett teamed up with model Ricki Hall to create his own signature scent, Booze and Baccy. Rather than cigarette butts, think ‘honeyed fresh tobacco leaves, dusty aromatic frankincense, maple-like benzoin, woody oak moss and warm exotic vanilla bean, layered with mid notes of fresh hops and sweet bog myrtle finished with the top notes of spice from the bay rum tree and zesty orange’. We love the product and this great promotional shot Iain took with Ricki at LASSCO in Bermondsey.

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.”

Joe Luffman, the Design Director at Saatchi Masius initially told Iain. (more…)
