LPA Photographers / Charlotte Tolhurst / Arden’s

November 21, 2014

New recruit Charlotte Tolhurst is off to a brilliant start here at LPA, and for her first blog entry we’re kicking off with with these striking shots for Arden’s baked goods.

Charlotte was commissioned to photograph each of the Arden’s products with their ‘perfect pairings’, beautifully capturing the rich colours against the dusty backdrops.

Charlotte’s fresh, bright and contemporary approach to food photography lends itself perfectly to both creative editorial jobs and more technical packaging shots, and we can’t wait to watch her already impressive body of work grow!

5 Minutes With… / Terri Coates / Picture Editor

November 14, 2014

This month we spent 5 minutes catching up with Terri Coates, here’s what she had to say…

© Terri Coates/Pashley

- Could you tell us a bit about yourself Terri?
I’m a picture editor & photographer. I studied creative advertising at Lincoln University and I’m originally from Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Photography has been a passion of mine since I can remember, so I moved to London after finishing university, to pursue my career. I got a job at WENN, a news and celebrity picture agency. I always dreamt of art directing photo shoots since I was a little girl due to my slight obsession with the TV show ‘America’s Next Top Model’ so when the position of Picture Assistant came up at IPC Media (now known as Time Inc. UK), I jumped at the chance. I have now been Picture Editor here in the Creative team for 4 Years.

- For people not in the industry, could you explain what being a Picture Editor entails?
A picture editor at a magazine manages a team of picture researchers. They search for and clear all rights on any images that will be used for the publication. My job differs slightly from an editorial picture editor as I work in the Creative Advertorial team, which works with both, editorial teams across varied magazines and our advertising clients. Advertorials are editorial content that is paid for by an advertising client. Our team researches and shoots all the images, which are to be used across all 24 Women and Lifestyle magazine titles at Time Inc. UK.  My day-to-day work is extremely varied due to working on various campaigns and for various advertising clients. I could be in the office researching images, casting models and researching locations one day or attending client meetings and art directing a photo shoot the next.

- What are the best and worst things about your job?
I love my job! My favourite part is art directing the photo shoots. We work with such varied clientele, which means some days I could be on a fashion shoot and another times photographing celebrities or magazine readers, bloggers etc. on a location shoot. I would say the most challenging part of my job is to keep both sides happy, the editorial teams as well as the clients. Sometimes they might have a slightly different vision of what they would like from the advertorial, so great communication skills is a must.
