Julian Calverley: Never Let Them See You Sweat
WHAT’S THE BIGGEST PROBLEM YOU ENCOUNTER WHEN SHOOT A WORLD-CLASS ATHLETE? Her stamina. “At no point did she break a sweat,” says photographer Julian Calverley. “We had to add perspiration using the make-up and effects artist.”
It wasn’t the only magic that Julian worked for a recent Science in Sport ad campaign featuring Helen Jenkins—professional British triathlete, Olympian and the 2008 and 2011 ITU World Champion. With access to Helen for only one day, Julian shot her in studio in Bristol, England, and added background images during post-production.
“We had her running on a running machine with no side bars, to achieve realism in her muscle tone and posture when running,” explains Julian. Later, he shot the stunning landscapes that served as powerful backdrops for the images.
It was fast—but fun. “It was a real pleasure working with Helen, and when you understand her achievements you can’t help but be in awe of someone with that amount of dedication.” The feeling was mutual. “Helen’s agent made a point of telling us that we were the nicest crew she’d ever worked with, so a perfect end to the day!”
HOUSEwarming: Greenhouse Welcomes Sarah Anne Ward
GREENHOUSE IS THRILLED TO WELCOME SARAH ANNE WARD TO OUR ROSTER OF TALENT.
A love of photography is imprinted on Sarah’s DNA: As a child growing up in the DC Metro area, she would explore the darkroom in her grandparents’ basement. “I never met him, but my grandfather served as a documentary photographer and film developer in World War II. He never wanted to hold a gun, but he wanted to serve—so he held a camera.”
Sarah’s stunning food and drink photography is the result of her extraordinary passion. “I always want to do it differently—to bring my subject to life and to tell a story,” says Sarah.
Her work with soft goods mirrors that of her food photography, offering a unique perspective that injects personality into her subjects.
Sarah has worked with an impressive client list, including J. Crew, The New York Times, Wine & Spirits, Pentagram Design, the Carbone Smolan Agency, Random House and more. We are thrilled to have her join our team.
Saddington Baynes: 30,000 Pixels of Gorilla
This fierce and furry beast was created for Nissan’s latest ‘What If?’ campaign in collaboration with TBWA\Chiat\Day.
Saddington Baynes tells us, “This is not just any gorilla – it’s 30,000 pixels of gorilla! He was developed using our new fur system that allowed us to create millions of individual hairs on his body. It was the perfect opportunity to showcase our recent developments in life-like fur creation, combined with organic modeling, hand sculpture and styling skills.”
