Halewood Inspired ‘Live Shoot’ event a big success…

This week we held the Land Rover ‘live shoot’ seminar event at the Halewood plant led by UK automotive and commercial advertising photographer Tim Wallace of Ambient Life.

This event is the largest that Calumet are involved with in the UK and it took place at the Land Rover plant in Halewood in a dedicated shooting area that is used by the Land Rover Experience team.

The event was aimed at a select group of mainly professional photographers as they were led through a 2 day course consisting of a ‘live shoot’ with Tim on the first day and then a day in the class room to discuss techniques, workflow and post capture routines.

Hasselblad, Profoto, and Epson provided full product and staff support during the two days and were on hand throughout to assist Tim and help ensure the the attending photographers had the best possible experience. Tim’s ‘live shoot’ seminars started a few years ago after being asked by Jaguar to perform an ‘industry first’ shoot on stage at their Castle Bromwich headquarters, since then we have seen the demand increase and this year not only did we stage 2 of these new extended format 2 days Land Rover seminars but also we have delivered a special Centenary event for Morgan at the factory in Malvern.

Tim – “This year I wanted to extend the format on our Land Rover events as I felt that photographers still had many questions once the live shoot was completed so we decided to extend this year to a 2 day platform. It’s a pretty intense few days for everybody including me in truth but the feed back that we have received from this first event on the new platform is very positive indeed and I’m looking forward to us enjoying more success working with Land Rover. It’s been a great 2 days and the support that I receive from our suppliers such as Hassleblad and Profoto really makes for a great experience for all those that attend, this time we had the new Hasselblad H4 for people to use doing the 1st day shooting out in the field as well as the latest lightweight field lighting solutions from the Profoto team.”

In 2011 we plan to hold more of these with our client Land Rover and details once they become available will be on our news pages and at Calumet Events.
