Laidlaw Auctioneers & Valuers
For this photoshoot James worked with BBC Antiques Expert Paul Laidlaw on a series of portrait and documentary photographs, in and around his Carlisle auction house. This collection of photographs were an instrumental part in the auctioneers new website launch. Laidlaw Auctioneers and Valuers are based in a converted mill and pride themselves on merging state-of-the-art technologies with the raw industrial features found in such a Victorian building. James’ challenge on this shoot was to capture Paul’s fun-loving personality, foiled against the atmospheric ambience of his saleroom.
Posh Paws Dog Grooming Salon
Based in the heart of Haltwhistle, Northumberland, ‘Posh Paws’ gave James one of his most enjoyable challenges yet; capturing the pace and character of a busy dog grooming salon. Owner Stacey Waugh wanted publicity images for use on her social media pages and website, capturing the unique vintage vibe she has so lovingly created. The four-legged models meant that James had to be quick on his feet to catch the best shots, but it was Stacey’s connection with her clients that really stole the show.
'Love Your Nation' - Catalogue Photoshoot
I worked with Love Your Nation on their new 2017 range. The photos I took were to be used as part of their summer catalogue. Love Your Nation is a vintage homeware and accessories company based around the idea of celebrating all that is British. Their homeware accessories are very unique which is what they wanted to show and highlight in the photographs.
