March '24

I recently found myself in a Manchester studio surrounded by some of the top scientists in the UK Nuclear industry. SMRS were driving a campaign to highlight the careers available at the National Nuclear Laboratory. Working alongside videographers, Thunder & Lightning, my part was to create portraits of the scientists. These would later be stylised and used on NNL’s website and social media sites. I was initially worried that scientists might not be naturally at ease in front of the camera, but I was quite wrong and I met lots of big characters. Someone nearly choked on their lunch and was heroically saved by the sound man John, doing the Heimlich manoeuvre!  It’s never dull on my photoshoots…

I spent a few days with Manchester Fertility Clinic renewing their portraits for all the staff. We wanted to create a friendly but professional feel as well as get a consistent look across the whole company.  Clara from MFC worked tirelessly organising the photoshoot and kept everything running smoothly. We went on to do a few lifestyle images around the site reflecting the friendly, warm and caring atmosphere.

This seems to be a science-themed newsletter this month with my next visit to Orcha in Cheshire.  Orcha (the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps) found themselves in need of photography content for their website. They had just moved into new lovely offices. I worked with Lucia, from Orcha, to create office lifestyle images of staff working together and collaborating.  This shoot was a mixture of seeing a situation that was happening naturally, adding lighting and a little bit of direction and also orchestrating whole situations to look natural.  I’ve created a case study here about this office lifestyle photoshoot.

Lastly, one of my regular visits to MCS in Cheshire to keep their headshots up to date.  I love this blue background – I think it looks very modern and distinctive and it’s a nice change from white or grey.  The MCS people are always a joy to work with and I look forward to my visits.

That’s everything for now – the next one will be along in April.

Bye for now – Claire.
