MOORE IDEAS IN THE RAIN

Always make other people run !

Always make other people run !

Delighted to welcome the boys back after shooting with so many girls. We had a very happy time as we spent half an hour shooting the lads as they larked in the mud, graciously accepting my ideas, including getting wet sitting on the leaves in the woods. It rained throughout but that did not deter our shoot at all.

Looks lovely but they were trying to push each other off the bank behind.

Looks lovely but they were trying to push each other off the bank behind.

Nice flat light but low levels resulted in shooting at fast ISO to keep the shutter speed up.   I also added to the entertainment by falling flat on my face as we climbed through a broken fence.

Twins as well as brothers

My knees look like they did when I was about eleven but the D3 kept itself together very well!

“FREEDOM”

PS6

Light Blue for Schools

As you go on, you find yourself reflected in your achievements, in others perceptions and even in dark corners. If you put anything at all into your work, it will shine back at you.

PS8

Classic Brown for portraits. Spontaneous moments are where we excel.

The questions are: Is it what you thought it would be? Is it enough? Is it what you want? We have had a wee bit of that and decided to clarify the answers and build a plan for the Wild Highlander. Articulate the things we care about and the way we care about them – then it is true for us and will be true for everyone.

PS18

One of my favourite images I have taken - to date.

PS38

Greater clarity would not have made for a better moment. Genuine feeling is a must in our style.

Wild Highlander is about people. It always has been about people. Through all the diversity of images on our site, 90% of them are of people. It is not that we love people, ( although we probably do), it is that we love what people are – fascinating, evolving buckets full of surprises and stories.

We try to make people look like they are and like they are perceived. If we can do that then – job done!

PS43

What you do not see is often more important that what you do. The mind fills in the blanks.

PS24

Even our Commercial work, like this chocolate advert, is driven to catch moments

PS44

Isn't this how every boy is seen by his mum!

There is consistency in our style but not cloning. We do not shake the face of one client into the frame of the last picture. But we do shoot in a similar style consistently and largely unwittingly. s our only reason for taking photographs at all.We have incorporated some legacy images not shown here before to introduce the brand diversity before we update you on many stories that we simply ran out of time to discuss last year.

PS42

This image shortlisted this client into the New York finals of the Ralph Lauren Modelling competition.

It is this creative freedom that sits at the essence of what we do – we have discovered. And it is this freedom that we will continue to place at the centre of our world. In creating our new look we have tried to release that looseness of style. A style that we had straight-jacketed in a fine edwardian script and the monochromatic elegance of our look to date.

Trying to make the brand reflect where we wanted to be rather than who we are.

PS37

Sometimes you find you have taken a picture that comes into your "I wish I'd taken that" category - and be thrilled you did. Found, not Posed.

PS35

Every Dog has his Day !

PS15

Taken in natural light on a cold winter dusk with a door light slightly shining from the left. Tribute to Nikon and the D3 Sensor.

PS12

Looks beautiful in a natural oak frame

PS34

Just light from a stairwell window. Nothing special but the day itself!

That closet is now trashed and we stand basking in natural light. The branding you see in the previous blog post and you will now see tranforming all of our communications and activities is designed to reflect that loose creative freedom that is our only reason for taking photographs at all.

PS32

Lisa Kwei (pronounced KWAY). First album is due out in June. Beautiful Singer who has served her apprenticeship.

PS27

I am proud if this image. It tells the esact story I was looking to achieve.

PS9

Don't know how this got so right but studio madness takes over sometimes

PS1

The Godfather. Looking hale and chipper but muttering ...'get on with it'

PS26

Ulorin Vex shot courtesy of Yerbury. An Honour.

We have incorporated some legacy images not shown here before to introduce the brand diversity before we update you on many stories that we simply ran out of time to discuss last year.

PS13

Athena eat your heart out

PS14

when a model is not a model ...

PS10

A very unadventurous look at skintone with an eye cocked to Mapplethorpe

PS4

Writer, Actor and Director Graham Pountney

PS11

No-one, and I mean No-one, has ever looked better with no front teeth.

PS5

In Memoriam

PS3

A celebration of life

PS25

PS2

Cool and beautiful with great smoky eyes. Reading Vogue all your life pays off.

Catch you soon…

“FREEDOM”

PS6

Light Blue for Schools

As you go on, you find yourself reflected in your achievements, in others perceptions and even in dark corners. If you put anything at all into your work, it will shine back at you.

PS8

Classic Brown for portraits. Spontaneous moments are where we excel.

The questions are: Is it what you thought it would be? Is it enough? Is it what you want? We have had a wee bit of that and decided to clarify the answers and build a plan for the Wild Highlander. Articulate the things we care about and the way we care about them – then it is true for us and will be true for everyone.

PS18

One of my favourite images I have taken - to date.

PS38

Greater clarity would not have made for a better moment. Genuine feeling is a must in our style.

Wild Highlander is about people. It always has been about people. Through all the diversity of images on our site, 90% of them are of people. It is not that we love people, ( although we probably do), it is that we love what people are – fascinating, evolving buckets full of surprises and stories.

We try to make people look like they are and like they are perceived. If we can do that then – job done!

PS43

What you do not see is often more important that what you do. The mind fills in the blanks.

PS24

Even our Commercial work, like this chocolate advert, is driven to catch moments

PS44

Isn't this how every boy is seen by his mum!

There is consistency in our style but not cloning. We do not shake the face of one client into the frame of the last picture. But we do shoot in a similar style consistently and largely unwittingly. s our only reason for taking photographs at all.We have incorporated some legacy images not shown here before to introduce the brand diversity before we update you on many stories that we simply ran out of time to discuss last year.

PS42

This image shortlisted this client into the New York finals of the Ralph Lauren Modelling competition.

It is this creative freedom that sits at the essence of what we do – we have discovered. And it is this freedom that we will continue to place at the centre of our world. In creating our new look we have tried to release that looseness of style. A style that we had straight-jacketed in a fine edwardian script and the monochromatic elegance of our look to date.

Trying to make the brand reflect where we wanted to be rather than who we are.

PS37

Sometimes you find you have taken a picture that comes into your "I wish I'd taken that" category - and be thrilled you did. Found, not Posed.

PS35

Every Dog has his Day !

PS15

Taken in natural light on a cold winter dusk with a door light slightly shining from the left. Tribute to Nikon and the D3 Sensor.

PS12

Looks beautiful in a natural oak frame

PS34

Just light from a stairwell window. Nothing special but the day itself!

That closet is now trashed and we stand basking in natural light. The branding you see in the previous blog post and you will now see tranforming all of our communications and activities is designed to reflect that loose creative freedom that is our only reason for taking photographs at all.

PS32

Lisa Kwei (pronounced KWAY). First album is due out in June. Beautiful Singer who has served her apprenticeship.

PS27

I am proud if this image. It tells the esact story I was looking to achieve.

PS9

Don't know how this got so right but studio madness takes over sometimes

PS1

The Godfather. Looking hale and chipper but muttering ...'get on with it'

PS26

Ulorin Vex shot courtesy of Yerbury. An Honour.

We have incorporated some legacy images not shown here before to introduce the brand diversity before we update you on many stories that we simply ran out of time to discuss last year.

PS13

Athena eat your heart out

PS14

when a model is not a model ...

PS10

WE’RE BACK

OrangeandblackFORBLOGRGB

We have field tested the new look but feel free to add your comments

Its been a very long time. Somehow after getting back from our brilliant Cornish Hols, our feet never touched the ground. Shireen joined the business between school runs and has been invaluable in liaising with our lab and framers. Cromarty has grown and still sees the studio as his home. We have had a great first year, with some very interesting adventures and now we will share them with you. 2010 is the year of the new brand. We have worked with all our agencies to bring a whole new Wild Highlander brand to you. Fresh, Young , Orange and Black and with a unique URL. Our web and network teams believe that we are the first people to register a mobile phone number as as url. So if you have our logo you have all our details. I expect that this will catch on. But On with the show and welcome to 2010 and the New Wild Highlander.

FIRST LINK IN THE BLOGCHAIN

In response to the Blogchain started by IDLE (see http://idle-idle.blogspot.com/).

OK (As I also admire the audibly haggard R2 late evening twinset), lets start with obscurity. My link is Queens of the Stone Age ‘No One Knows’. Why (apart from the genius of being the band that released the album Music for the Deaf) is that Stone word – Ah ha – very tenuous you say – but not so.

Queens of the Stone Age supported the Rolling Stones in LA and Las Vegas on their 2006 Bigger Bang tour and caused some controversy. Frontman Josh Homme (sic) suggesting that the Rolling Stones only released albums these days to remind people they are alive and not because they had anything creative to offer. Why not bite the hand etc etc.

WHY THIS SONG? As it happens a great song with a classic metronomic riff worthy of many of their peers and even Peers (Sir Mick) that lifts them to the heights that encouraged Dave Grohl to play with them and record their ‘Songs for the Deaf’ album.

FYI – Just announced – the new super – weird – group called Them Crooked Vultures consisting of Homme, Grohl and John Paul Jones of Led Zep fame. UK Tour dates just announced.FYIPlymouth Pavilions (December 10)Portsmouth Guildhall (11)Blackpool Empress Ballroom (13)Birmingham O2 Academy (14)Edinburgh O2 Academy (15)London HMV Hammersmith Apollo (17)

Anyhow – its a starter for ten. Queens of the Stone Age with No One Knows – any takers??

CROMARTY 13 WEEKS

Keep Alert for the unknown

Keep Alert for the unknown

It has been a busy few weeks for Cromarty. he has learned to commute, to wait, to walk on a lead, to guard a house, to greet strangers and ward off unwelcome ones, he has learned to paddle, almost to swim, the taste of seaweed and the pleasure of hurling it across the beach. he has found out that he is not a Great Dane but has a bigger heart and brain. He has met with vets, hotelliers, gardeners, babies, traffic and dogs. He has paraded down Padstow high street (it took an hour including all the adoration), and scampered across the cliff tops at Tintagel. He has enjoyed dog food, dog vomit, bird shit and rabbit droppings. He has met with wild horses and dined at the White Hart. All in all a satisfactory holiday for a 13 week old dog. › Continue reading
