Creating Multimedia for Instagram Feed and Story

We love creating media designed to be used on multi platform, its the best way for us to spend our time creating assets clients can use in multiple places to reinforce or deliver their message in a modern way.

The post above and the actual asset below can be emailed to viewers from the posted or by email using the file below as the file type is  open an source .mp4 we can also be save in a .mov format if you prefer.

Black and White is to us classic, it's a style our clients like to work with, it draws you to the subject more, perfect for actors dancers and models making a first impression with casting directors and brands.

This type of asset works perfectly alongside a stills package as both can be produced in the same session whether in natural light or a studio setup.

Square format

The square format originally a Instagram design is now also supported by Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin. We think the square video stands out and is a refreshing look but so too is the

Portrait format
Instagram Story a portrait format, this is an option we can build into a conventional video shoot.

To use this video within an Instagram portrait style feed, we deleted the square overlay from the design process.

Contact me to discuss how we can create modern content like this for your agency, brand or the discerning private client.

Brit Rapper Simmy from 2007

Manchester Photographer Jason Harry
Rapper Simmy by Manchester Photographer Jason Harry

An image straight from our image bank of 2007.

We shot this image with Simmy in a mixed light location, a lot of our work is shot this way. The site near Manchester has recently been developed which is a shame as we enjoyed using it a number of times over the years.

We love creating images that show identity, we also like our kit to be flexible and highly portable. Back in 2007 the small Canon strobes used had to be linked either with a commander unit on camera or using a trigger that was not always reliable in either strong sunlight, over any distance or tight angles.

Luckily for me I found Michael Bass Designs in the USA, he most graciously modified a number of Canon 580EX for me to work with my Bowen's triggers up to 100m away from me in any conditions... this was a game changer for me for sure. This also freed up other shooting possibilities.

If you are a photographer looking to extend your kit workflow and creativity check his offerings and see if any would help you!!

If you are wanting great imagery for your or brand identity get in touch, we would love to speak with you.

John "Mr Condition" Hodgson IFBB Pro, Training at ULTRAFLEX Normanton.

We visit one of the UKs best equipped Gym facilities as John trains with owner Charlie Marsdon at his ULTRAFLEX Gym Normanton.

Up close and personal John has plans for 2019, so this installment is an insight to his normal condition with some extra attention to diet, you may recall I photographed him in the lead up to his birthday, this was a month or so after we did that session for him in at Hollingworth Gym in Manchester.

John says "Training is the stimulus/catalyst for growth and growth can only start to occur providing you train correctly and overload the muscles by progressively increasing the weights you lift over a period of time.By training in such a manner the muscles are forced to adapt by becoming bigger and stronger, this is termed as Progressive overload."

John Hodgson needs little introduction, but for those not in the know he is world renowned for his muscle condition in competition and generally year round. 

Here John links with Lukas Gabris prior to his Mr Universe qualification in weekly workouts to check his progress and put him through the kind of workouts he would of done himself when he was preparing for his own shows. Johns is testing Lukas determination and work ethic to the limit, at times pushing him past his own natural limits.

Abdominal's or Core, Lukas is again taken into new waters with John's techniques for working this area.
