Great to have one of the Liberty Mutual / Havas NY shots from the campaign choosen in the Honorable Mention category at the awards last month.
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.
CHICAGO / SAN FRANCISCO / LA -OCT.
I am fortunate in having the friends and colleagues that I have in the USA, along with the new friends and creatives I made and met on the trip to Apple combining portfolio viewings in Chicago , San Francisco and Los Angeles . Specific thank you to you both at LEO BURNETT. You great guys at MUH.TAY.ZIK / HOF-FER . You at MULLENLOWE ! , you at ARGONAUT , VENABLES and you at BUTLERSHINESTERN for the great response and help with finding a new U.S. representative . Thanks all.
Here are a few images I had time to make on the compact during a manic schedule …
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.
One of my favourite places and this week having to print some new as yet unseen files shot last year of this unique City and in some pretty unique light . This and others are up on my site in the ‘NYC Highline’ project as well as instagram #darranrees .
