Restaurant Photography of Buonissimo Italian Restaurant, Birmingham We love food, particularly Italian food, and so our mouths were watering when we were asked to provide photography of the ambience and food at Buonissimo. Though many restaurants and bars like to show off their sleek interior design and styling choices through images without people, the team at Buonissimo wanted to focus on the ambience of the place when it is in full swing as well as their signature dishes. So as not to disturb paying patrons, the restaurant owner arranged for friends and family to fill out the venue one lunch time whilst we snapped away. Alongside candid images of the guests enjoying themselves and the serving staff doing what they do best, we also photographed their signature dishes as they came out of the kitchen. Above is a small sample of the images we captured during the time we were there.

ITG Christmas Office Party at Revolution Bar, Birmingham Getting that work/life balance right is so important, and as key as big conferences, product launches and networking nights can be to your business, it's also important to keep staff motivated and morale high. Socials and team building events are a great way of doing this, particularly after often stressful periods such as Christmas where you really need your staff to perform. So why have these events photographed? Investing in social and team building events have already proven to increase morale which in turn positively effects motivation, engagement and performance within your company. By having the events photographed, your team will get to revisit a day they found to be great fun, several days after the initial excitement may have worn off. Not only do the photos give them something to come together over, but giving them the option of sharing the photos on their Facebook, Twitter and other social media pages, allows your brand to be seen by hundreds if not thousands of people if the images come watermarked with your logo in a corner, something which we are more than happy to provide. Above are some examples of some of the 500+ images provided for the 2014 ITG Christmas office party at Revolution Bar in Birmingham. The clients (both ITG and Revolution Bar) requested a range of images including atmospheric shots of the venue, it's food and decor, candid photos of the team having fun as well as group portraits. These were to be provided within 24 hours and include the respective company's logo in order to increase it's social media presence whenever staff members uploaded the photos.

PR: Unit/Production Stills Photography The chaps in the Channel 5 picture publicity department are a regular client of ours and we’ve photographed everything from live shiny floor entertainment shows to international drama productions for them. Here are a selection of shots taken for a range of their shows including Celebrity Big Brother 2014, The Great Christmas Toy Giveaway, Cowboy Builders and Home and Away. Celebrity Big Brother: With filming going out live, time was of the essence and we only had 60 seconds of the commercial break to get a set of solid PR shots for the show. Turnaround of images was required same day so that they could be released in the following day's press and media packages. The Great Christmas Toy Giveaway: 'The Great Christmas Toy Giveaway,' presented by Myleen Klass, Sam Nixon and Mark Rhodes and with special guest appearances from the likes of Union J; star of Eastenders, Natalie Cassidy; Olympic medallist Anthony Ogogo and McFly. We were required to provide non-disruptive photography of the show as it was being recorded as well as grab portraits of the presenters and special guests for the promotion of the show. Same day delivery was required in order to meet sign off requirements. Cowboy Builders: For this assignment we went out on location in Coventry to what was effectively a building site. With time extremely limited, we had only 30 minutes to capture arresting portraits of presenters, Dominic Littlewood and Gabrielle Blackman in between filming segments for the show. With no mains power available, we were required to work as a mobile, self-contained unit in order to get the shots the client needed. Home and Away: When Australia's Channel Seven
