Julian Calverley:  London Philharmonic Orchestra

“They were looking for drama,” says Julian Calverley.

No doubt the London Philharmonic Orchestra found it when their agency, Chaos Design, commissioned Julian to shoot their recent ad campaign.

Known in part for the moody style of his photography—threatening skies, theatrical landscapes and more—Julian was the perfect choice to shoot the giants of the orchestra in front of London’s iconic landmarks.

People and places were shot separately—only a half-day was allotted for the musicians, while the locations were done in three long days, from sunup to sundown. “The landscape images were actually three frames stitched together,” says Julian, who used an ALPA 12 STC with ALPA HR Alpagon 4.0/40mm and IQ180 MFDB. The STC allows an integrated shift of the camera back, so the lens remains precisely in place, avoiding any distortion. Once the agency had paired artist with area, Julian finished the images himself in postproduction.

“It was incredibly exciting to shoot in London,” says Julian. “It’s an exciting, buzzing place. It was intense—and a bit of an adventure.”

What’s a shovelhead? It’s a person who digs without checking the ground first, potentially damaging the public infrastructure beneath—and it’s how Randal Ford and the DCP Mainstream turned a relatively dry topic into a creative, memorable and remarkably affective ad campaign.

The character, drama and romance of Alexandria, Virginia played a starring role in Cade Martin’s beautifully shot creative for the city’s tourism campaign.
