Creativity is the fundamental key to any successful commercial photography when mixed with a strongly defined shooting style. Commercially it is very important for client to choose a photographer based not only on their obvious technical ability but most importantly on their ‘style’ of work, this has been the main driving force behind all successful photographers for over 100 years and one that is just as important to day as it ever was with the age of digital technology. True creativity still exists in the capture and control of light with your subject mixed with a strong creative vision of the world.

NFT – Port of London Tilbury Shoot

NFT_logo_RGB

This week saw commercial photographer Tim Wallace working with one of our long standing clients ‘NFT’ to create new work for marketing, brochure and corporate use.
NFT are currently in the process of having a purpose built facility constructed at The Port of London, Tilbury and Tim has been working with NFT to create some photography that captures their presence and operation at the port and places their branding inline with that of the port in a dynamic style.

Our background working with NFT Ltd in the UK

AmbientLife have been producing commercial and corporate photography for NFT for over 5 years and they are one of our valued clients in the UK.
Initially Tim was approached by NFT when they were looking to build on their corporate image library, making changes to their content so that it reflected a more dynamic and high end feel to their imagery for use both in corporate advertising as well as at a point where the company were going through some changes to both rebrand the vehicle livery and also launch a new commercial website. With a fresh and high quality library of commercial photography the company was able to feed their advertising and marketing with new dynamic photography that stood out as well as utilising it for such items and customer calendars and as framed art work around all their UK sites.
We have been successfully working with them through out their business growth over recent years and as well as creating vehicle photography we have also been heavily involved to projects to capture their operation. This is something that we often find goes hand in hand with the truck or commercial vehicle photography when a client is seeking to build a strong brand image library and this is something that we have great experience in. This can involve warehouse, depot or operational line work and all of these Tim approaches in the same way, first understanding the requirements and then working with the clients marketing team to formulate a ‘brief’ or shooting list of whats required and how that can be achieved. We are very aware that halting work in an operational area or taking tractor units out of the operation, even briefly, can have a cost implication for our clients so we invest time to ensure that the imagery required is achieved with the minimum impact to the business operation. In many cases this is where working with a ‘experienced’ commercial photographer with knowledge in an industry really can make a substantial difference, not only to the actual quality of the photography itself.

NFT Distribution provides Primary and Secondary Chilled Distribution services to all major retailers and manufacturers through their transport, warehousing and logistics solutions and is a specialist in both chilled and fresh food, although they also deal with ambient, frozen and grocery goods. When a food item has a short shelf life, it has to get from the factory and into the store in the shortest possible time, so that the consumer is able to enjoy it at its best.

NFT estimate that there’s a one in three chance that the fresh chilled food item you have just purchased from the supermarket will have travelled on an NFT truck at some point in its life. To illustrate the tight timescales that NFT are working to, think about that freshly made sandwich you just purchased from a leading supermarket. It’s possible that your sandwich only came off the production line around 14 hours ago, and since then has been wrapped and boxed, has been collected by NFT and brought into one of the NFT depots, where it has been consolidated with other products and delivered to a regional distribution centre. There, it was ‘picked’ for that particular store, and subsequently delivered, unpackaged, put onto the shelf.

‘When a product is fresh, NFT ensure that it is keep it that way.’

Tim – “The Tilbury project was a massive undertaking from a logistical and photographic point of view and its one of those shoots where planning and preperation are very much the key. I did a recce of the London Port of Tilbury a few weeks before the shoot meeting with the Port management team to look at possible locations that were usable for our purposes and also most importantly looking at access and the actual working area’s and how they operate. In a busy port such as Tilbury there is a vast amount of activity when a ship berths with its cargo containers and whilst having this as a backdrop is great visually it also brings its own issues from a health and safety point of view with a lot less space to operate and shoot than you might think. The shoot was planned out and we completed that this week for our client who will now be using this photography to promote their new Tilbury presence through their marketing and corporate outputs.”

Dennis Eagle Trucks – 2015 Brochure Shoot

DENNIS EAGLE LOGO 2013 PLAIN

truck photography lorry HGV photographer

Dennis Eagle have been one of our truck industry clients over the last 2 years, and in that time commercial photographer Tim Wallace has worked closely with the UK based company to produce their commercial advertising and marketing photography. This week we were shooting the new 2015 model brochure for Dennis Eagle at one of the UK’s largest vehicle studios.
The facility is one that we use for some of our automotive car work but also when the vehicle is somewhat larger and in this case it was the prefect location to allow Tim to complete the shoot on 3 new Dennis vehicles.

All the studio work was shot using a Hasselbald H5 medium format camera system, this gives our client the very highest quality image files for then to then utilise across their business whether that be in brochure and marketing material or being deployed in large format on posters at trade motor events or on billboards. Using a high end image capture system we feel is imperative to our clients to give them not only the flexibility of imagery use but also the very best image quality possible to project their product to their own customers.

Tim – “The day started early as I arrived at the studio not long after 7am, we had a lot of work to get through with quite an extensive shoot list from our client covering three vehicles and various detail / accessory images to capture too. When I arrived the first of the vehicles was already on site at the studio entrance and we had brought in a dedicated vehicle cleaning crew to work on all three throughout the day. When we shoot cars in this sort of situation it is normal that they would be cleaned and prepared in the factory and then transported via a covered transporter to the studio, however thats just not possible with vehicles of this sheer size and weight so each of the vehicles shot had to be driven to the studio directly from the Dennis Eagle factory and then cleaned and prepared on site. As with any shoot the devil is in the detail and its good solid planning and preparation that really makes the difference on a shoot like this.”

“We met with the Dennis Eagle marketing director to go over our planning of the shoot as this is always an essential in these situations, which vehicle would be shot first and in what positions and in what order, this is crucial to the shoot as you do not really want to be moving these very large vehicles around too much if you can avoid that to both save time and also keep your shoot location inside the massive studio infinity cove as clean and free from contamination as possible.
Our lighting on this shoot was all ‘continuous’ lighting equipment that gives us the control over the light that is required to get the right lighting over a vehicle of this size and complexity.”

NFT Mercedes Shoot – UK

nft banner
This week saw commercial photographer Tim Wallace working with one of our long standing clients ‘NFT’ to create new work for marketing, brochure and corporate use. Recently NFT made some changes to the ‘livery’ of their fleet and given the size of the operation through out the UK and the hundreds of vehicles that involves this was a perfect time to bring up to date their commercial photography library of images and make use of the new livery. Our client ‘NFT’ contacted Ambient Life photographer Tim Wallace to assist in this project, and commissioned a series of photographs to show their new branding in a dynamic and modern style and this week Tim worked with the company shooting on location at one of their largest warehouse sites in Daventry as well as on the a proving ground to allow him to capture the new Mercedes tractor – trailer units in the new livery.

The project was completed over just one day and was not without its challenges, not least how to shoot multiple large vehicles moving at speed in a safe and controllable environment. This was achieved with the help of the proving ground facility who we contacted to assist with the project. The facility offered photographer Tim Wallace the perfect opportunity to capture some dramatic images that would normally not be possible on the open road. Safety was a paramount concern through out the shoot and a great many of the shots that Tim produced were achieved by using a modified open back chase car to shoot from with of course the use of a full body harness that Tim designed for just this sort of work.

Dennis Eagle approached AmbientLife a few months ago as they were looking to push forward and improve their web presence as well as cover the launch of two brand new prototype vehicles that will soon go into production.
Earlier this week commercial photographer Tim Wallace worked on location in Devon using the dramatic Dartmoor landscape as a backdrop shooting the two new vehicles and also producing work for web, marketing and brochure use for the company. We look forward to further projects with Dennis Eagle that are already being planned to move into the production element of the business and other areas to bring these up to the required standard also in coming months.
