Stills Based Motion A Perfect Fit.

Many years ago (circa 2008) I had my own photography training site and community where I would video, present and film photoshoots and the post production work to form an A-Z of a complete shoot.

After a few years I decided to close the site and concentrate solely on assignment work once again. For a while I felt I had in some ways wasted several years of my time and energy but as I have since learn’t nothing goes to waste.
Some of the things that I would have never had photographed in my day to day professional life or techniques used in post production have since proved of huge benefit to me.

The biggest benefit though was the skills I had to develop in capturing video as the tutorials on the site were all video base content.
Over the years these skills have enabled me to not only increase my earnings but led me to explore other motion based stills work.
At heart my first love will always be still photography but more and more I can see the big benefit to clients to be able to offer motion work alongside capturing stills and even repurposing stills into 2.5 d Parallax movies to provide even more content within their budgets.

Another area Ive been commissioned to work in is blending video with stills which is often referred to as Cinegraphs.
This campaign was shown on digital billboards at airports all over the U.S.A and here in the U.K

More recently Ive been shooting some video combined with Time-Lapse work which I feel is a perfect fit to my photographic style.

Stills based motion offers an engaging alternative to purely shooting video although as with all things requires a learning curve to get the best from it.

Protexin, Stop Motion Company Video

For several months this year we worked on a large project for a company called Protexin.
Protexin manufacture and distribute worldwide Probiotcs for human & animals consumption and where looking for a new way of showcasing to their international customers their impressive state of the art production line, staff and premises.
As we had been keen to work with them for quite a while we set up a meeting and proposed shooting a video using thousands of still frames (and some motion) to showcase their company in a contemporary and engaging way.
After shooting using the technique at one of the many exhibition that they attendĀ  (see Protexin A Engaging Video Solution ) they decided to expand the project even further to produce the finished video below.
After a fair amount of pre production and planning not to mention many many hours of processing, colour grading, a pinch of after effects and plenty of video editing the project was finally finished.
Protexin where extremely happy with the finished product and we have since worked on several other albeit smaller Photographic projects with them.
