The Brief / Anthony Nolan / NHS Stem Cell Registry Annual Review

July 25, 2014

The Brief is a quarterly feature on the LPA blog which takes a behind the scenes look at a photoshoot.


Photographer: Patrick Harrison

Client: Anthony Nolan

Title: Together for Better

Art Director: Dilhan Attanayake

Shoot dates: February 2014

Usage: Annual Review, UK, 1 year

This time we centre The Brief on a project Patrick Harrison has recently completed for UK Charity Anthony Nolan, the NHS and the Department of Health.  Having worked with Patrick previously, the client knew his natural reportage-style approach and knack for capturing his subjects in their own environments (see below) would make him perfect for the job.

The Brief:

The original brief from Dilhan Attanayake, the Creative Studio Manager at Anthony Nolan and Art Director for the shoot, was to produce a series of portraits for the Anthony Nolan and NHS Stem Cell Registry 2014 Annual Review.  Each portrait would capture a different person associated with the cause, from the chief executive of Anthony Nolan to donors themselves.  The purpose was to mark achievements made in stem cell transplantation so far, and to measure further progress that can be made.  The images needed to be natural and engaging, with a contemporary feel.

The Shoot Prep:

This involved:

Photographer’s Requirements:

• Photographic expenses for x 4 half day shoots – digi-capture, equipment and lighting kit, post-production


• Photographer’s 1st Assistant


• Expenses – Travel & mileage to Nottingham, Leicester, RAF Brize Norton and North London


• Couriers, mobile and production insurance

The Location:

It was decided that Patrick would shoot each subject in his or her own working environment, which saw him traveling across the country and meeting lots of interesting people affiliated with the cause.  Patrick’s ability to capture people in a spontaneous and genuine manner has resulted in final imagery that is sincere and anchors the message of the Annual Review perfectly.

Patrick shot the stem cell donors in Nottingham, Leicester and RAF Brize Norton, as well as shooting representatives from Anthony Nolan and the NHS in London.

The Shoot

This was a successful and enjoyable shoot for both Patrick and the client, who both commented on how smooth the process was.  Here Patrick reveals a bit about the things he needed to consider upon receiving the brief:

“This was a really nice portrait brief from Anthony Nolan. The client and the art director were present for the first shoot, which was the perfect opportunity to discuss how best to approach the other shoots as I would be doing these alone with an assistant.

We discussed that all the portraits would be used bleed on a single page A4 portrait format with no text so shooting with this in mind meant all the shots taken were usable. The tone of the portraits was the other major consideration. They needed to be focused and direct, capturing and communicating the strength and openness of all involved. The pictures would be used to encourage others to consider being a donor in the future so this wasn’t a light hearted brief. 

I love photographing real life stories and meeting new and inspiring people is always rewarding. My aim is always to make those people feel as special as possible, and to be sensitive to their wishes. This ultimately means making quick decisions about possible locations / backgrounds and working as a team with the assistant to put everyone at ease. The experience should appear to be effortless and should hopefully be rewarding and enjoyable for all and not like a bad trip to the dentist, which is probably what most people are expecting! 

The final images were printed beautifully and seeing them for the first time was really exciting, I don’t think I’ll ever lose that feeling!”

Here’s what Dilhan had to say about working with Patrick:

“The right Imagery on this project was key to its success as we wanted to show how individuals from everyday backgrounds could, by a selfless act, save the life of a person with blood cancer, by donating their stem cells and registering as a donor on NHS Blood or the Anthony Nolan register. The individuals in the images taken by Patrick Harrison came from all walks of life and in this respect we wanted the images to reflect them and their surroundings in an honest, realistic way that Patrick’s captures effortlessly.

The team at LPA were fantastic from our initial conversation about the idea to the delivery of the final images, they made everything run so seamlessly that all we had to do was concentrate on making sure that we had a worthy design to marry Patrick’s beautiful images.”

LPA Photographers / Patrick Harrison / Anthony Nolan

April 1, 2014

LPA Photographer Patrick Harrison‘s sensitive and empathetic style won him this commission for the Anthony Nolan and NHS Stem Cell Registry.

These portraits are of stem cell donors Zach, Andrew and Ross who have all saved someone’s life with their selfless act of donating cells. The whole production involved four different shoots, shot on location in the donor’s environments including an RAF base in Brize Norton and a physics classroom. The images were then used as full page spreads in Anthony Nolan’s annual review brochure to help illustrate the organisation’s commendable work.
