Owner and creative director Cameron wanted to showcase the talents of his team of stylists at both the Jamaica Street and Cressington salons. The lighting style and background was to be dark and moody in order to give emphasis to the hair styles and colour techniques used to create the looks.

Looking SWANKY !

Kingfisher Group headshots http://gregmorrisphoto.co.uk/blog/2018/6/kingfisher-group-headshots After a call form a contact at B&Q head office in Southampton and I was off to London to Kingfisher Group head office to photograph a group of Kingfisher colleagues in from France for the day to attend meetings in Paddington. Kit all loaded in the car and I'm on my way. 

After a 5.30 am start I was at the London offices of Kingfisher in time to meet the 12 colleagues who were over from Kingfisher in France.

 

Lighting set and test shots done, the brief was to shoot each person in a formal three quarter length shot and then a less formal, closeup head shot to be reproduced in black and white. 3 hours later, the shoot wraps and those travelling back to France headed for the Eurostar while I packed up the kit and headed back North, fortunately the M6 was clear and I made it home in good time.

Commercial video, timelapse and stills photography http://gregmorrisphoto.co.uk/blog/2018/6/commercial-video A recent last minute call from a local industrial client resulted in a quick dash down to their manufacturing site to document x4 40 foot containers being loaded up with an order shipping out to Basra. This last minute shipment is a regular occurrence for Inciner8 who regularly ship their products around the world.

 

Alex Billingsley, marketing director at Inciner8 wanted us to capture timelapse, stills and video of the shipment which required x4 40 ft containers and a 45 tonne specialised crane to lift the products onto the containers. By attaching GoPro cameras to the crane hook and the cab as well as a static camera we were able to record the lift from several angle thoughout the day.

 

The footage is now with the editors and I will upload it as soon as it is finished. Here are are a few stills taken on the day.

Inciner8 http://gregmorrisphoto.co.uk/blog/2015/4/inciner8 A call from a website designer lead to an interesting few days shooting large medical and industrial incinerators for local manufacture INCINER8

The biggest challenge came lighting these huge machines, some of which are over 3 meters in length and weigh in at a hefty 5500 KGS. 

As it would be impossible to transport the units to the controlled studio environment, Greg took the studio to Inciner8 at their Southport based manufacturing unit.  

Manouvering the units in place was easy enough thanks to the skill of their fork lift drivers, once positioned, Greg was able to build a light tent around each one ensuring and evenly distributed light avoiding unsightly flare and highlights while clearly showing off the build quality and all the USP's of each of the various units in the vast range.

Lighting is key to a job like this and this was quite a challenge for Greg whose 30 years of experience came in to play to ensure the client was delighted with the end results. It transpired that an earlier attempt by a less experienced photographer had not been successful as they had arrived on site with just a basic on-camera flash gun !  Greg has worked in many challenging situations around the world, shooting corporate brochures and Annual reports for Vauxhall Motors Ellesmere Port Plant, Cautaulds, BAA, Q8 oils, and the Civil Aviation Authority on locations as diverse as the engine room of a Fishing Trawler in Grimsby, the fire station at Gatwick Airport, in the emergency generator plant deep under the Home Office in Whitehall and even down a giant mine shaft in Finland.

Next up for Greg is a trip to Holland to photograph the interiors and exterior of new accommodation units at a well known holiday company site just outside Amsterdam.....stay tuned for more pictures.

Food and Restaurant Photography http://gregmorrisphoto.co.uk/blog/2014/11/food-and-restaurant-photography Greg has recently had a number of commissions from the food and restaurant sector.

A change in discipline from the more complex studio roomset photography, Greg rose to the challenges and recently produced a series of images for Bents Home and Garden, one of the UK's leading garden centers

Bents have won countless awards and its Fresh Approach Restaurant can cater for every taste with a wide selection of culinary delights from traditional dishes with a modern twist to more creative and contemporary options that are sure to tantalize your tastebuds.

Setting up a daylight studio in the corner of the restaurant, we were able to produce a library of images for use across the business on promotional literature, website POS as well as social media sites such as Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram which included still life shots of food and beverages as well as behind the scenes shots of the kitchen staff and chefs.

 

By bringing the studio to the client, Greg is able to maximize the facilities and expertise of the team of in house chefs and patissiers while minimizing costs.

To view more of Greg's food work visit the food and drink section of "My Folio" on the home page.
