20 Jan Educational Studio portrait photography
If you have visited Bristol city centre recently there is a chance you will have seen some of Hacker’s work. In the window of the Learning Partnership West building at the corner of Baldwin Street and Colston Avenue are four enormous prints of portraits of young people – which you would be forgiven for mistaking as a Benetton advert.
Hacker took the images as part of LPW’s re-brand led by the hugely talented design team at Blended Creative. The photo shoot was art directed by Creative Director Eugene Conlon over three days to produce a photo library for the company which they can use online, in the city centre window and throughout the offices within the building.
“The brief for the shoot was to create images that would spark an aspiration for learning rather than to show learning within the learning environment.” Bristol commercial photographer, Hacker explains. “So we chose to focus on simple portraits in a studio complete with stylist and make-up artist to produce high quality images with a neutral background, depicting people of all backgrounds and ages having a good time.”
Learning Partnership West recognised the value in commissioning aspirational images for their business to create a consistent brand message from the website right through to the office space. Using a professional photographer means they have a high quality product with great lighting which can be used for years to come.
