Most of my commercial photography involves conferences and events, so it is great to work on a commission that presents a different challenge. Apparel and fashion photography is an area that requires a high attention to detail, management of colour balancing across a range of images and the ability to successfully get the best out of a team of live models.

Leeds based agency, Creative Emporium booked me to help client Under Armour, create some high-end photography for their branded sports clothing.

They required dynamic images of people wearing their items, while undertaking sport in a realistic setting. Creative Emporium already partnered Liverpool John Moores University, provding branded clothing for a range of sports teams. So it made perfect sense to plan a series of locations using their excellent on-campus sports science facilities and labs. We had 6 models and four locations over the course of a day, so it was fairly intensive day shooting !

The model released images were used across various media. Below are some screen grabs from their branding website.
