Yesterday we were invited by RenewableUK to photograph a visit at FT Technologies’ facility in Surrey with a same day turnaround. Former McLaren Croup CEO Martin Whitmarsh was there to lead the review for The UK Offshore Wind Industry to create a clear Supply Chain Development Plan as part of its vision for 2030 which was announced last month.
The plan will set out how the industry can deliver £2.6bn in annual offshore wind exports by 2030 (from £0.5bn today) and support up to 27,000 high quality, well-paid jobs across the country.
Climate change is one of the biggest issues humanity faces and it’s great to have the opportunity here at JKP to see behind the scenes what is being done to help fight against it.

In 2007 Lauren Bush founded FEED, a charity set up in conjunction with the UN World Food Programme to help tackle child hunger. Lauren’s idea was simple, create products that would engage people in the fight against hunger. Every one of their products has a number stamped on it that signifies the amount of meals or micronutrient packets provided with its purchase.
In 2011 Clarins partnered with FEED for the first time in its mission to help children suffering from poverty and malnutrition. Since the partnership began, globally Clarins have provided over 15,300,000 meals. Today Clarins UK launches it’s 4th consecutive year of their Gift with Purpose campaign where each purchase of the Clarins FEED bag provides x10 school meals for children living in poverty.
Above is some of the content we created for the Clarins FEED 2017 social media campaign.
When a procession of Norman soldiers escort a group of prisoners through the depths of the forest, they are ambushed by a band of bloodthirsty thugs. The Normans routed and shown no mercy, a captive minstrel manages to trade his life for a song. Composed on the spot, he promises his attackers immortality through the ages. But sometimes legends are born by accident, and history can play a game of Chinese whispers with the truth.
Shot over one weekend in Langley Park Forest – The Legend of Bob Leonard is the latest short film produced by Samantha Grieves with writer/director Will Kenning and DOP James Kar.

Earlier this year we met and filmed an interview with Es Devlin on behalf of MediaStorm. The recipient of this year’s WSJ. Magazine 2016 Innovators Award in the field of Design, she is largely considered the most pre-eminent stage designer in the world.
Having worked with some of the greatest artists of our time, including Adele, Beyoncé and Kanye West, Devlin uses design to create “gestures” on stage that evoke the spirit of her clients.
A truly deep commitment to her craft, you can easily see why Devlin deserved the 2016 Innovators Award. She gave us an inspirational insight into her thoughts and processes and we were really fascinated by how her designs transpire through the different pieces that she creates.
Her sense of responsibility to her audience with what she is creating is something that really resonated with us here at JKP and it was a real pleasure to be able to meet and film her interview earlier this year.
Highlighting both her impact in design and the brilliance of creating what are essentially memories check out her interview below:
Es Devlin has spent 20 years investigating some of the most important stagecraft of the last two decades. From Wagner to Beyonce, Devlin has created stage design that expands upon the core ideas of each performance regardless of genre.
