LPA Photographers / Ray Massey / Chromedia / Porsche

February 9, 2015

LPA Photographer Ray Massey was recently commissioned by Chromedia to shoot these dynamic images for Porsche.

Whilst Ray is best known for his impressive catalogue of studio work with drinks brands, he is as comfortable shooting out on location. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of their historic win of the historic Targa Florio road race, Porsche have produced the anniversary Cayenne GT2 II GTS. Ray shot the car on a road trip from the Porsche engine plant in Stuttgart, to Dr Ferry Porsche’s Design studio in Zel am See and over the notorious Grossglockner high Alpine pass in the Austrian Alps before driving to the Sicilian mountain site of the famous road race circuit. We love these energetic images which capture the true power of the Porsche engine.

LPA Futures Oliver Haupt has been recently working on a creative new personal project with St Bride’s Choir.

Housed at St Bride’s Church on Fleet Street, St Bride’s Choir was formed in 1957 and have been singing ever since. Shot on location, Oliver captured the chorists mid song in a series of captivating portraits. Known for his use of light and expansive retouching skills, Oliver’s project perfectly captures the exuberance of the choir and the atmosphere of the church.

LPA Futures / Catching Up With Holly Pickering

February 3, 2015

With the deadline for LPA Futures 2015 fast approaching (February 13th), we wanted to catch up with Holly Pickering on her time as part of the Futures programme. Here is what she had to say…

©‎ Holly Pickering

- Hi Holly! Firstly what made you want to enter LPA Futures back in 2013?
I was at the point of thinking seriously about leaving my previous career in fashion to make the leap into becoming a full time photographer, and LPA Futures looked like a great platform to gain exposure within a really competitive industry, and also a great opportunity to benefit from LPA’s experience and hopefully develop my work as much as possible.

- How did you feel when you were selected as one of the winners?
Surprised as I never expected to make it to the final five, but really delighted as I knew it was going to be a huge opportunity!

- Have the two years lived up to what you were expecting?
Definitely, I think the first six months were a big learning curve as it’s a struggle getting your name out there initially, but I’ve been really lucky to have built up a great client list with LPA’s help and have been really busy shooting  – and it’s been great to see how much my work has developed looking back over the two years of the programme.


LPA Style / Claire Portman / Morrisons

February 2, 2015

LPA Style’s Claire Portman recently provided the pretty hair & make-up on this endearing shoot for Morrisons childrenswear brand Nutmeg.

Shot by Ross Bolger for the latest collection of Nutmeg clothing, we love Claire’s simple yet effective grooming, complimenting the clean set ups and cute illustrations perfectly.
