The Chocolate Festival, Easter 2015

easter choc
The tastiest event in London, and we have it covered!
The Chocolate Festival has been running since 2009 as well as the Cheese & Wine Festival, Tea & Coffee Festival and Real Bread Festival. We’ve been covering them all pretty much since they started at London’s Southbank Centre.
Last year The Chocolate Festival took a giant leap forwards and moved indoors to North London’s Business Design Centre in Islington.
This year was a super treat for all as the Cheese & Wine Festival also ran alongside The Chocolate Festival. Chocolate, Cheese AND Wine… what more can you want?!
There was so much to cover and we’re looking forward to sharing the final promo vid when it’s all done.
What we love about The Chocolate Festival:
Meeting the best chocolatiers and artisan producers in the country! (Plus being able to sample and buy all their tasty products is of course a major bonus!) ;-)

We had a bit of a nerve wracking wait for the latest Collection to arrive in London so that we could get them straight into the studio to photograph, meet the printing deadlines and send them off to Vogue UK. Luckily all went well despite the delays and we made up for the lost time. Continue reading

Joyeux Anniversaire Tour Eiffel!

Eiffel Tower
Today the Eiffel Tower marked it’s 126th anniversary of it’s public opening and we just so happened to be in Paris for a photo shoot! After a very early start and a lot of photographing, we managed to finish late afternoon giving us just enough time to visit the Eiffel Tower before heading back to London.

Great time in Munich earlier this week shooting with the ‪Birdycam 2 and Sony ‪A7s‬, DJI Phantom 2 with gimbal and GoPro 4 for some great aerial shots, plus the Canon C300 and C100. We had a fantastic crew for this shoot and working with The Creative Grid is always a treat. We’re looking forward to sharing the final adverts when it’s all live.
For now, here’s a couple more videos from behind the scenes on the shoot:
