Direction. Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. A world renowned resource preserving and monitoring migratory waterfowl. The HQ of the WWT commissioned Skylark to capture scenes of the Severn Estuary for a recent interior remodel. It was the perfect time to connect with award winning photographer Jim Johnston who captures soulful landscapes perfectly. After a day of recce and pitch of options to key personnel by Skylark, Jim joined the team to dodge weather, negotiate mud and models and ultimately deliver breath taking images that now fill the visitor centre walls.
Direction. Bristol based Brewery and Tap, Moor Beer Co. can't do any wrong. With a catchy brand that's easy on the eye and a broad selection of craft beers that are easy on the palate (they really are), they're growing rapidly. Skylark joined the Moor Beer marketing crew to capture some of their best sellers for the forthcoming 2017 Moor Beer Book. We dreamed up the 'lived in' look and the excellent Edward Fury captured our dreams for posterity. Here's to the future!
Production. A fantastic Cotswold shoot for Accolade Wines festive promotion. Wanted: An immaculate location, impeccable styling and industry leading photography. Skylark delivered. From location scouting and booking to sourcing, briefing and managing the team. And of course all those other little details. Used in their online portal and due to print any day, the end results have received the highest...well...accolade. Huge thanks to the talented Edward Fury for photography and Jaine Bevan for styling. Cheers!
Direction. One of the South West's leading motorcycle dealerships Bridge have rebranded. No more hackneyed journo bike shots. No mainstream manufacturers cliche. A little heart and soul please. Something to get the adventure worm turning. Day trip or beyond, daydreams to inspire were delivered. Skylark conceived, produced, directed and photographed the 2 day campaign with James King.
An inspiring week of trail running in Fuertaventura proved an invaluable start to December, preceding detailed client side digital artwork and content management for Gloster Furniture; www.gloster.com. Never desk-bound, Skylark enjoyed the pre Christmas buzz catching up with old friends agency side and client side - as well as establishing fresh and exciting partnerships. 2016 offers creative management, design and artwork with agricultural accolades, brewing boffins and weekend warriors alike. The New Year has arrived!
Creative Direction. After the True Mountain shoot I knew the results were good but I was on pins awaiting final images. Knowing they were due to be used at a huge scale in European exhibitions added to the anticipation. Some of the most exciting images I have had the pleasure to capture, the campaign is unquestionably the result of an excellent team. Mother Nature kindly supported the process with perfect conditions.
Production, Creative Direction. That wrap shot. I'll never forget it. The culmination of two wonderful days in the beautiful Lake District. From concept sketches to art direction, it was a delight working with James King and Charlie Sproson to capture the excitement of mountain life for British brand True Mountain.
Art Direction, PR, Campaigns. A brief review of Gloster's recent PR success. Investment in impeccable imagery pays dividends. If your image is right, a publication will use it. Capture consumer attention with irresistible covers and spreads.
Creative Direction, Production. Sometimes locations just need to be perfect. Tasked with a search for stylish architecture and rolling vineyards no ordinary location company would do. After identifying likely properties Good Spaces joined the team and we tackled the process with a unique approach. The results? What's not to like about Napa Valley?!
Creative Direction, Production. Take a vibrant city (Barcelona will do nicely). Add summer sun, a rooftop bar, a dizzy mix of characters and some way out styling from the excellent Goodspaces team. The result - a fantastically fun vibe. Perfectly on message for the stylish new furniture range 'Nomad' from Gloster.
