Apple -USA visit.

A wonderful opportunity to get to meet the amazing art producer , creatives and producers at the Apple Photo Department in San Francisco this month . The portfolio/book seemed to go down very well,  as did the little 20 page magazine we created – made up solely of iPhone ‘snaps’ , simply as a little leave-behind-thank-you. Here is the cover.

New U.S. work published

Here is one of the images made recently for ‘Liberty Mutual ‘ which I can now show. The commission was to provide a minimum of ten ‘beautiful’ and ‘iconic’ images of the well know lady landmark for this famous Boston based client , who use her image in their advertising.

I had three hours helicopter-time over two days , two dawns and one evening. The weather played ball with us on one of those mornings and gave me what I was looking for . That moment of evocation and symbolism associated with this place. Just a little rendering here on my version and no comping.

Thank you to ; Allison of Liberty Mutual , Patti & Renee of Schumann & Co.,Chicago. and Anneka Howe of ‘Howehaus Productions’ New York, for all providing the opportunity and help making it work so well. Finally ,Scott Freeman at ‘The Operators’ -London for the terrific post production on the clients final pics.Liberty-FIN-2June-myversion+flag+USM
