BrewDog by James Williamson

Brew dog launched the official Advertising campaign for Beer Punk IPA, with a fantastic campaign. Black and white shots of people that had invested in BrewDog, officially called #Equitypunks. 

So they decided to use me to photograph them, alongside the talented team at,  www.studioartcommerce.com.  We collectively arranged to shoot a large group of people at the AGM, and then went on the mammoth tour round the UK,  to shoot some specially selected Punks with interesting hobbies or jobs. Here is a selection of the shots from both the AGM and the round the UK campaign. A special thanks to @floheiss @swansandpetrol @studioartcommerce @suegurner @samschaef @torsethomas @heidecohuu and the rest of the crew at the Agency.  Below Is a selection of images and art work for Poster and Press. 

The work has been picked up by The Drum and Contagious magazine, I am sure there will be more to follow.

BBC Tumble. by James Williamson

Screen Shot 2015-05-14 at 22.46.26.png

I was recently asked to shoot behind the scene images for the new BBC show Tumble, on their promotional film shoot, by the agency http://www.redbeemedia.com. An exciting project.  It quickly transpired that I had an opportunity to also shoot portraits of the talent.

So between myself and the ECD at Redbee, we came up with a plan.  Once we had the ok from the BBC, it was just a matter of trying to be in two places at once!

The day was full on, with capturing the behind the scenes filming,  then once the talent was free, rushing them back to the studio set up and producing a set of consistent portrait images. My idea was to capture them as if they had just finished their best move, that split second after presenting themselves to the judges, being proud and satisfied with their performance. It's not easy as most of the moves look the same, so we came up with a few shapes which lend themselves to the brief but that also give you a beautiful image. 

Once we had our set of images, it was off to the amazing boys at http://thetank.co.uk, to work their magic, adding a sense of drama and showmanship to the final grade.

Check out the BBC Tumble gallery in commissioned for the full set of images.
