LPA Photographers / Iain Crockart / Saatchi Masius / Radisson Hotel Group

December 16, 2013

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.

LPA Style / Charlie Cave / Games on the Beach

December 12, 2013

With the frosty weather out, we thought we’d share some summer sunshine with this beach shoot styled by LPA Style Charlie Cave and shot by photographer Steve McDonough.

Shot at Hengistbury Head in Bournemouth, making good use of a friends’ beach hut, this test shoot gave Charlie the chance to experiment with kids’ styling and grow her portfolio. We love the smiles and energy, makes us look forward to summery days!

LPA Style / Charlie Cave / #4ThePlayers

November 21, 2013

LPA Style’s Charlie Cave recently collaborated with director Will Innes Smith and Adam Wells (Got Got Need) on this fantastic project for PlayStation which was commissioned by Drum.

In anticipation of the much awaited launch of the PS4, this nostalgic video takes us back in time to the release of the PS1 right up to the new system, featuring some of the consoles most iconic games such as Tekken and Resident Evil. The mammoth nature of the project definitely kept Charlie busy and she did a fantastic job tracing changes in decor from 1995 right up to the present day. Absolutely brilliant work Charlie, well-worthy of all the praise you’ve been getting.

LPA Style / Charlie Cave / Farnham

October 1, 2013

LPA Style Charlie Cave teamed up with the fabulous photographer Steve McDonough over the summer to shoot these images in her hometown of Farnham, Surrey. 

Full of vibrancy and colour, Charlie’s delicate and girly styling compliments the bright late summer sun which Steve has captured so well. I think these are making us all a little nostalgic for our youth in the office.

This colourful and happy shoot for Ritz Crackers was produced by our team at LPA Production and photographed by former LPA Futures photographer Olly Burn (now represented by Making Pictures). After we scouted the location and cast the models, our talented girls at LPA Style completed the picture: styling by Charlie Cave and hair and make-up by Ellie Tobin.

If you are either commissioning photography or being commissioned, LPA Production can take care of any or every element of your shoot, so just give us a call!

Charlie Cave / Owen Silverwood / TFL

April 4, 2013

Back at the tail end of last year, LPA Style’s Charlie Cave worked on this great set of images for TFL shot by Owen Silverwood (represented by East Photographic).

Promoting the London Overground (that’s the orange line if you don’t know!), Owen’s images are simple and beautiful and would definitely catch our eye whilst waiting for a train. Charlie’s work is impeccable as always, sourcing unusual props such as DJ decks and commissioning a hand made belt to look like the orange overground line! Charlie even provided the writing which accompanies the compass. Lovely work Ms Cave!

5 Minutes With… A Stylist / Charlie Cave

January 28, 2013

We’ve spent 5 minutes with people in every area of the photographic industry, from model bookers to animal talent agents. For our first chat of 2013, we thought we’d stay a little closer to home and caught up with the inimitable Charlie Cave of LPA Style. With a wealth of experience in the fashion and retail industry, Charlie is one of the most creative stylists in the business. Here is what she had to say….


-­ Tell us a bit about yourself and what you do?
I am a stylist for both stills and TV commercials. My work involves researching, mood-­boards, props, set builds and wardrobe. I am also a mother to two amazing little girls. Unfortuately both work and children have been most unkind to the bags under my eyes.

- ­How did you become a stylist?
Whilst at university, I did work experience for the jewellery designer Tom Binns in New York where I met several fashion stylists. I become really interested in the idea of styling, but found the fashion industry incredibly scary. So I decided to try and get experience in interior styling. After graduating, I worked at Habitat and Liberty department stores doing visual merchandising and window displays. During this time I also did lots of assisting, then after several years I started getting my own jobs. I was very lucky to work with two brilliant stylists/journalists who took me under their wing, Vinny Lee & Margaret Caselton. They taught me so much – I am very grateful to them.

- What are the main skills you need to be a commercial stylist?
You need to be extremely organised, with good knowledge of all the prop houses, stores etc. An ability to get on well with people and most importantly understand the brief is key.

Patrick Harrison / General Medical Council

November 2, 2012

Patrick Harrison has recently been working with the General Medical Council (GMC), shooting this heartwarming and tender set of images.

Shot for the GMC’s in-house material, LPA sent in a great team: in addition to Patrick, Charlie Cave provided the styling while Claire Louise supplied hair and make-up to our doctors and patients for the day. The result is a beautiful set of images which capture the power of humanity.
