LPA Style / Claire Portman / Superdrug / 50 Years of Beauty Looks

June 23, 2014

Health and beauty giant Superdrug are currently celebrating their 50th year in business and have put together this great short.

Taking inspiration from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s, LPA Style Claire Portman put these eye-catching retro make-up looks together to capture the spirit of the Superdrug brand. It’s hard to pick a favourite but I think we’re going to go for the 80s.

LPA Futures / Oliver Haupt / FCB Spain / Master’s Gin

June 18, 2014

LPA Futures Oliver Haupt was recently commissioned by FCB Spain to shoot this vintage style campaign for Master’s Gin. 

Shot on location throughout Spain, Oliver was commissioned to capture both the past and present of the brand and we love the results. Oliver’s also a master of post-productipn, manipulating the images to give them a real historic feel.

Apparently smashing the Gibson guitar was easier said then done and Oliver nearly had to cut in half before the final shots! Definitely will be having a gin and tonic tonight to celebrate his results.

LPA Photographers / Three New Signings!

June 16, 2014

We’re very pleased (and excited!) to announce three new photographers to the LPA team! After months of searching every avenue for the best photographic talent around, we’ve picked three real gems and we can’t wait to start working with them.

Still-life supremo Liz McBurney, lifestyle photographer Andy Smith and the fabulous Charlotte Tolhurst who can make anything look good enough to eat, our new additions fit the roster perfectly.

Here’s just a taste of their talent…

Liz McBurney

Still life photographer Liz McBurney is well known for her witty imagination, making some of the most everyday objects beautiful in their own way. Liz’s lighting skills are second to none and her creativity is certainly going to keep us on our toes. Collaborating with London’s finest model makers and prop stylists, Liz works from her studio on Brick Lane. Clients include Dare, Greenpeace, The Guardian, Iris, Sainsbury’s, Shell and TBWA.

Yorkshire born Andy Smith has already made his mark on the London photography scene shooting for a range of clients including BBC, the Bank of England, Conde Nast, Hilton Hotels, Immediate Media and Volkswagon. Andy’s spontaneous, reportage approach to lifestyle photography coupled with his fantastic use of natural light has already got us excited in the LPA office and we can’t wait to see what’s next!

Charlotte Tolhurst

Food & Lifestyle photographer Charlotte Tolhurst has amassed a wealth of clients over the years, including to name a few, Alpro, Asda, Design Bridge, Havas, KFC, McDonalds, and Weight Watchers.Charlotte’s bright and seemingly simple approach to food ensure everything she shoots looks utterly tempting. Supported by a team of home economists and stylists, with a North London studio at hand, Charlotte is ready to get her teeth stuck into any commission.

LPA Style / Charlie Cave / Harveys

June 10, 2014

LPA Style Charlie Cave recently styled these thoughtful and homely interiors for Harveys Furniture.

The idea behind the shots was to use different scenarios and themes of each room, to inspire the right props to complement the furniture in the best light possible. For example one shot takes an approach of a young family’s apartment in contrast to another which captures more of a bachelor pad. Charlie is always gifted in sourcing unusual and beautiful props, and styling themes with a sensitive and feminine approach.

LPA Photographers / Julian Calverley / iPhoneonly

June 9, 2014

LPA Photographer Julian Calverley embraces the power of the camera phone with his latest book of landscape photographs taken entirely with an iPhone.

Julian is well known for his atmospheric advertising and landscape work, working regularly with clients like Mercedes, Aston Martin and Bank of Scotland. Typically an advocate of professional photographic gear, the last couple of years have brought Julian round to the spontaneity of the iPhone and the ability to share results with a wide audience, via online feeds and blogging platforms. Julian has found that on location, with the ever-changing light and weather conditions, an iPhone can act as a visual notebook, to quickly document a fleeting scene, or often to take a memento image of his ALPHA camera in front of him.

Composed of 60 high quality colour photographs, printed using a waterless lithographic, this book is sure to make you consider the power of your iPhone in an entirely new light.

The book is available from the Lionhouse Bindery

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 Photographers / Rowan Fee / John Lewis Technology

June 5, 2014

LPA Photographer Rowan Fee shows off his skills with product photography on his latest shoot for the John Lewis technology magazine.

We love the aquamarine colours and use of light, Rowan always knows how to bring the best out of the products he shoots, using perspective to great effect. These Canon, Samsung and Sony products are presented in interesting ways, using certain products to show off others, like the camera captured inside the television for example. The images add to the collection of work he has already shot for John Lewis, having also worked on the John Lewis 2013 calendar and birthday card.
