Commercial photography in Newcastle

13 September 2018

The shoot had been planned for a few months. I had been contacted by Seth Ridley, MD at Kino Creative back in May and asked if I could help out by providing imagery for the KBR project.

KBR are a wi-fi and networking solution providers and they want to improve their website and have a more authentic presence, rather than using stock image all the time.

I had spoken to Seth at Kino creative a few times on the phone and the brief was to capture specific jobs being carried out by the team, indoor and outdoor, whilst also creating a sense of professionalism with posed and natural shots.

He wanted a photographer to capture the team actually at work during one of their projects in a school in the North East. The school was newly built and ready to open in September so the work had to be done in August whilst the teaching staff and children were not there.

The director at KBR was very organised and sent a list of all the jobs that would be getting carried out. He also made sure all the lads had brand new, branded polo shirts and high vis jackets so they looked great.

The team were a little camera shy on the day, but they relaxed as they realised they’d be no catalogue style posing, just a few tweaks to hand and arm positions as the photography was mostly done whist they were working.

They also had to ‘act’ out a few situations that weren’t necessarily on the agenda of that working day. Like installing the outdoor cameras and units. KBR needed to have a range of shots to choose from so we mage sure we got a great variety of imagery on the morning.
