Kara’s Yoga

Yoga and Fitness Video and Photo Production


This is Kara, a Yoga teacher originally from my home Town Henley on Thames, but now based in Central London. I worked with her a few weeks ago and it was a great experience.

Initially, she wanted to do a corporate photo shoot, consisting of a few portraits of her in her Hammersmith studio. But by the time we met, it was clear to me that we should do a more lifestyle shoot and introduce video too.

The Photos

First we concentrated on the photographic side. She had one of her members to help us create some shapes. Once we set up lights, it was time to decide how much exercise I was going to make them do. Yes, I was going to milk this opportunity and they kew it.

The day was really sunny, so I decided to combine the outside lighting with the ones I had inside. The look had to be fresh.

We must have spent a good couple of hours shooting a few poses while they were opposite to each other, as it was important to show how the work was done. This gave the images a graphic look I was very happy with.

Also, I wanted to show the social side of going to Yoga classes. And, most of all, the human interaction, which in today’s busy world it seems to be more difficult to achieve.

The Video

Finally, I produced the short video introduction. And since Kara was all about freshness and spontaneous charm, I asked to improvised her lines.

We set it up outside just to make it more natural. Karen, the assistant for the time, was in charge of the microphone. She did great. Eventually, after a couple of takes, we got it just perfect. It was a wrap!. short but just what she was after.

It was great fun doing this shoot.


UK Recruiting Video Production

Corporate Video

I was asked to do a small Corporate Video clip representing the industry UK Recruiting Limited works in. We met a few days before the shoot to discuss the images they were after. From that we built a Story Board and presented it to them for approval. It was a hit straight away. And so we booked a couple of building sites around London to do our filming. We knew we could film everything in one day but we had to be organised as we can’t really stop the building work for too long.

The Company, www.ukrecruitingltd.com, works in the recruitment field and they concentrate in the building construction industry. They gave me a fairly simple brief, let’s do building sites where we have our recruits in but also show the people interaction between the company and the work force we provide. As the video clip was to be used for their website, we couldn’t have a three minute clip either. so just about a minute then to keep it dynamic and attractive. No pressure there! It was a great day and everything fell into place. Light was good which in London is never guaranteed. People were in their posts as we requested. Props were ready and with the help of our Editing department (thanks to Diego) we got a whole day’s filming session into a minute more or less.

The actors had to do a couple of takes here and there to beat the nerves of being in front of the cameras but it all worked out great in the end. If you ever need a Corporate or a fashion video, come and talk to us.
