Client: STORi Institute Purpose: Advertising / web site Web Site: www.stor-i.lancs.ac.uk Art Direction: Steve Thomas Photographer: Andy Hockridge Brief(s): Create a portfolio of images from around the building / shoot students working and debating
This job came to me through knowing Steve the MD of Folio whom I have known for nearly 20 years, Steve also runs the photography unit at lancaster University and he often calls in outside help when they cannot cope with demand. I have done several jobs of this nature for Steve but this one for the STORi I am the most pleased with. The institute trains some of the brightest statistical minds from around the globe, graduating at PHD level. The brief was to imaginatively capture the building and atmosphere within - paying special attention to making the students look businesslike. The most difficult aspect to the work was coping with a bright orange wall that ran the length of the building!
