Excuse the pun, but the last few weeks I really have been.
Working with airlines is always something I’ve enjoyed, and just recently I’ve been working with Norwegian Air as well as Stansted Airport on some exciting new projects.
With my new video venture in full swing now, I was keen to offer up my services on my recent shoots and in turn was able to create the below video – take the time to sit back, relax and enjoy the flight as the film develops…
It’s great to be back on the press side of corporate photography, after working as a partner in a busy photo news agency before I started out on my own in 2001.
Working and living in Suffolk can be fantastic for photography which I know I’ve mentioned before (who wouldn’t love all of the natural scenes around here?), but as I work from home in Iken it’s sometimes exciting to get out of the house and immerse myself in a corporate environment where there’s a real buzz.
Going forwards I’d love to team my videography with more corporate clients – so watch this space!
Today it’s Jet2 holidays launch at London Stansted, my role as photographer is to capture the event for both MAG airports press office and Jet2 holidays PR department.
It’s 05:00 am at check-in for a few bleary-eyed group pics then out to the apron for boarding at sunrise and what a cracking dawn it was!
With my photo brief in hand I worked through the list of management shots, crew greeting passengers, families boarding and generic aircraft pictures before my 07:30 deadline – first two flights departing… Main focus on branding and friendly service.
No time for coffee, straight back to the terminal to download the pics, edit my selection of 80 plus pics and uploaded high and low res versions for the PR media machine to start it’s social media frenzy by 09:00!
Time for a quick coffee and Danish before wave two starts as passenger’s check-in for the lunchtime flights. A real buzz in the terminal as the Jet2 hospitality team gave away free holiday and discounts – the kids loved it. Time for more group pics and the cake cutting whilst snapping the party atmosphere.
11:00 and camera now full with wave two pics it’s time to head back and edit them before uploading another 40 or so favourites to the main set. Time for the media team to get them out to the world once again.
13:00 and my jobs done – starving but still buzzing and ready for my next commission…. Check out the Jet2 website for your next holiday at https://www.jet2.com/
Wow, loving these pics 🙂 What an exciting launch it was! Thanks, Holly – Jet2
