Fashion Shoot for Luke 1977  

Here’s the results from a shoot earlier this year with British mens fashion brand Luke 1977. The brief was ‘SURVIVAL KIT’ with a nod to the great outdoors and surviving the elements. They had Brian ‘The Lion’ Rose current WBO Intercontinental and British Champion modeling for them and I found the location, an abandoned quarry in the welsh mountains, it was a hard, harsh environment to match Brian’s hard fists, they also had a Sky Sports camera man came along to film it all.

The Elinchrom RX Rangers where dragged up the hill for the job with a few Quadras thrown in for good measure, I shot the flash shots on the Nikon D800 and the natural light on the Nikon D4 using a 50mm f1.4

All in all it was a great shoot even if it was bloody freezing cold. Here’s what Luke had to say about the images:

“The outcome was amazing and he hit the brief bang on and within budget. Not only was the shoot conducted in a professional manner but the post production work was stunning and gave the images another dimension. We have had a very positive response to this campaign that has gone national through various media. Communication and enthusiasm was solid throughout and we look forward to working with Ross going forward.
Luke Roper, Creative Director”

Dare2b AW13 Photo Shoot with Driven Agency.  

 

This time last year I was doing a shoot with the Driven Agency for Dare2b clothing Autumn/Winter 13 range. We shot it in Saas Fee, Switzerland  for a week with fairly tricky weather and snow conditions through out, hence we used the Elinchrom Quadras quite a lot. I used the Nikon D800 for most of the non action and the flash action photo’s, but reached for the Nikon D4 for the skiing pictures and the nightlife photography.

Here’s a little video of the shoot below.

Fashion Photo Shoot for Apsley’s of Pall Mall  

 

Here’s a few pictures from a shoot I did with Apsley’s of Pall Mall, the brief was to shoot some details shots of the shop, needle work and marking out, then shoot their suits with models, firstly against a concave background which we set up in the shop, then shoot using the shop as a background before moving outside to shoot in the street. I used the Nikon D800 and Elincrom RX 600 Style lights for the fashion shots in the shop, and the Nikon D4 for the detail work and the fashion pictures shot outside. The entire day was made a whole lot easier thanks to the splendid work of models Charlotte and Sam, who I have to say, are an absolute pleasure to work with :-)

Mountain Warehouse Catalogue Photo Shoot AW14  

Here’s a couple of pictures from the Mountain Warehouse winter 2014 catalogue photo shoot, this year we worked out of #Morzine, but with absolutely shocking weather 2 days in we had to chase the sun and go to Alpe d’Huez for one day, we also went up to Les Get for a day and from there I shot a panorama using the Nikon D800, it’s eight shots stitched together and although it looks long and thin, the file is massive at around 800mb and when you zoom in you can see ski tracks on almost every peak.

Snow and Rock Spring / Summer 2013 Catalogue  

This was possible one of the best shoots I’ve done for a while, it was for Snow and Rock and it all started in the awe inspiring Chamonix valley. We spent the week shooting in Geneva, Annecy, Chamonix and Italy and pretty much everything just fell perfectly into place, the crew where fantastic, the weather was sensational the autumn colours where just starting to kick in, the rainbows appeared on que and the pasta and coffee took some beating.

Alice Cooper @ Caprices Festival, Crans Montana.  

I went to Crans Montana in Switzerland this month to shoot the Caprices music festival, a nine day affair which happily mixes music with skiing. On the bill for one of the nights we where there was legendary horror rocker Alice Cooper. It was arranged for me to shoot the whole show rather than the obligatory first two songs and I have to say Alice really knows how to put on a show, he pretty much blow the roof off the place, not to mention his sizzling lead guitarist Orianthi. I shot 50gb of pictures as the whole thing was so photogenic with 10ft Snakes and Frankensteins rolling around the place. The D4 handled the whole thing beautifully and D800 didn’t to badly either.

Driven Photo Shoot in Tenerife  

This was a shoot I did last year with the Driven Agency in Tenerife for Dare 2b, we shot mostly in Mount Teide national park which I have to say was pretty spectacular not to mention roasting hot, which was fine in February. We shot mostly mountain biking with Ben Savage and Hanna Barnes and road biking with Oscar Pereiro. We also did a few bouldering shots and a little running. I shot with the Quadra’s for a couple of shots but we also used reflectors as the sun was so bright. Shooting in a dormant volcano is slightly weird as the whole place is covered in what can only be described as cat litter and a fine brown dust, which is great for biking action shots but plays havoc with the camera gear. I was having to hide my camera up the front of my shirt immediately after every shot and changing lenses almost made me cry.
