Let us be honest, it is never easy organizing a successful photography shoot. Finding the ideal location, hiring the right equipment at the best price possible, and assembling a highly skilled creative team requires excellent contacts, extensive research and time – often in short supply. That’s why Frank-Adam is here, helping you every step of the way so that you can deliver on brief, on budget and on schedule without additional stress.

About us

Frank-Adam launched in the autumn of 2009, offering production support to the creative and media industries, photographers and agents. Our service is carefully designed to deal with the finer details so that you can concentrate on the creative process and final images.

To date, we have consulted for growing media agencies, established broadcasters and global photographic agencies on a wide range of multimedia projects. Working alongside you, as part of your team, we are best placed to understand your personal needs and project requirements, delivering the best service possible.

To us it is more than just another production; it’s your production.

They say you are the sum of your experience and we have been working in the industry for over 18 years both here in the UK and the US. Our collective international experience ranges from picture editing, commissioning and artist representation to art directing, production coordination and finding the perfect photographer for the brief (in other words Art Buying, but more on that later).

We know what you expect from a job  -  and we know how to do it.

Frank-Adam offers a complete photographic production support service, working with you from the initial concept stage through to post production, ensuring you meet those all-important deadlines and budgets.

Fuel Fest party at Battersea Power station featuring Tinie Tempah

Challenge: Working within strict image briefs we were asked to document a series of Nike events at various locations in London. The images needed to be approved, retouched, resized and uploaded to Nike’s various social media platforms under tight time constraints. The Nike stunts included Nike Leap Day, Supernatural Launch, World Basketball Festival, Tinie Tempah’s Scavenger Hunt, Nike Training Club workshops, Nike British 10k run and an interactive Fuel Fest concert at Battersea Power station.

Solution: Utilising the expertise of high-end Sports and Music photographers we skilfully coordinated our selected team at each event. There were, in many cases, simultaneous stunts occurring at the same time. This required careful planning and coordination to successfully cover each area’s brief. Due to the demands of the deadline we devised an edit workflow with our on-location digital editors to enable them to edit and select images from the thousands that were being shot. Working closely with the client we were able to deliver the images that they requested and in the required formats.  

Result: Nike successfully promoted all of the UK events through their various social media platforms including their live ‘Fuel stream’ feed.

Challenge: To photograph for print and online campaigns covering 8 different European territories promoting the FIFA EURO 2012 game. We needed to find models that appeared as though they were native from each of the relevant countries. We needed to get approvals for all of the models from all of the countries involved before progressing with the shoot, whilst working to a tight deadline.

Solution: We provided the full 360 support from art buying, coordination of the shoot, right through to overseeing the post production phase and delivery of the final images. Working closely with the agency we coordinated all of the needs from each of the European offices at every stage of the production. We organised an extensive casting week to find all of the football fans and even brought our retoucher to set to work closely with the client during the shoot. The entire crew worked tirelessly to produce the 8 print campaigns and various online images in just 2 days.

Result: From Dylan’s expert shooting and perseverance, our amazing crew were able to deliver the great campaign in time to launch the new game successfully.

Potter’s Herbals

Client: Potters Herbals
Project: Mr. Potter
Usage: Advertising
Role: Producer
Photographer: Gary Moyes

Challenge: Potter’s have been pioneering their herbal remedy for nearly 200 years and this was the first advertising campaign that would feature Mr. Potter, therefore the model was key to the success of the adverts.  The intention was to maximize the shooting day to provide a wide range of costume and props options for various product launches. We were given 2 days to turn the shoot around, secure the CD’s model selection and negotiate their contract (with the inclusion of TV advertising), source costume and Victorian backdrop.

Solution: We broke the shoot down into all of its elements and organized the shooting schedule in such a way so that alternatives could be sourced on the morning of the shoot and photographed in the afternoon. Having a strong team that worked effortlessly together was key to the success of the shoot.

Result: The photography formed the basis a successful advertising campaign and consequently model that portrays Mr. Potter has appeared at press launches of the product.
