As a television BTS photographer I was commissioned to deliver stills photography on an MQA commercial shot in London. As time was tight most of the content was shot behind the scenes and during the making of the TV commercial.
Curiscope, a virtual reality education company needed some PR Brand Photography for their website and social media. The producers needed both stills and video as part of the final deliverables. I was booked to photograph the behind the scenes (BTS) stills and produce additional specials photography that created fun, interactive content of the talent.
With experience as an on set photographer I understand the importance of time and making opportunities happen. Producer Ed was on hand to steal the talent when they had a break from filming for a quick stills photoshoot on the side. We were able to focus our time on getting genuine reactions and a lifestyle feeling to the images. Another key part of the brief was to capture the kids interacting with the product in a way that showed clearly the product and technology used.
We ended up using a mixture of natural light and the on set available lights inbetween takes. Sometimes a still photographer can’t get the best angle during the main shoot so it’s vital to speak up and grab that 1 minute with the talent at the appropriate time to get a better angle and face to camera options.
