With a launch at the Bristol Sound and Vision HiFi show imminent I was asked to shoot the new LX range of speakers from Mission. The first two models, the LX2 and LX3, made their début at the show supported by a range of photography including a selection of cut-outs and the more creative images you see above. Looking pretty good I think you’ll agree and after a quick listen at the show I can confirm they sound pretty good too, as you would expect from Mission of course! All images ©Adrian Lyon.
One of the great things about being a photographer today is the flexibility we have in producing a wide range of material out of one project. Below is a behind the scenes video from a shoot for a Pharma client we’ve put together from the materials we shot for the ads, videos and time-lapse movies, which is a great example.
As you can see the brief was to shoot a mountain bike broken down into it’s component parts and then arranged into a graphic layout. The agency needed to produce ads in addition to printed support material with a video piece for the product launch. So from the one shoot, using our specialist overhead camera rig, we produced two time-lapse movies of the bike and it’s components building up plus behind the scenes footage with a time-lapse of the shoot progressing, not forgetting, the hi res stills images for the main ad and lots of detail shots of the components for the support material. Phew!
It was a great shoot (ads to follow) and great to be able to produce so much material for the agency and clients in combining the stills and video into one shoot. All images and video ©Adrian Lyon. All rights reserved. Video music courtesy of Bonobo
These beautiful components from Track Audio were part of a brochure shoot with David Denyer PR which included all their range of audio support equipment. It’s exquisitely made stuff, the attention to detail and the wonderful machining goes right across the range. A joy to photograph! All images ©Adrian Lyon.
So do you remember the humble audio cassette and the majesty of the mix tape and recording your favourite tracks from the Top 40 on a Sunday afternoon? It’s hard to believe it’s fifty years old yet at the same time it seems like an age since it was a useful way of storing and reproducing music such has been the progress of technology in recent years.
It was never the most reliable of media with great arm-fulls regularly needing to be fished out of the deck before being feed gently back into the cassette plus it never really sounded good, especially after a spell in the car. But it did (eventually) allow music to become properly portable and accessible almost anywhere (assuming you had enough batteries) which is reason for celebration in it’s self.
Wonder how long it will be before we’re saying similar things about CDs and DVDs?

It’s almost time for the 2012 AOP Photographers Awards and I’m delighted to have had this image series selected for the 2012 Awards. It’s a great feeling to get the email announcing your images have been selected to be part of the couple of hundred images which make up the book and exhibition (out of the several thousand entries!). Yeah!

These are a two of my favorite shots of the Magico Q1 speakers and Jadis JA120 amp from a couple of recent shoots for HiFi+ magazine. Both are gorgeous products and phenomenally expensive too, but worth every penny, I’m told… (guys, may be next time I could borrow them for while?!) All images ©Adrian Lyon.
To welcome in the New Year I’ve just added three new shots to my still life and product photography folio. I’m excited by this new work which is a more graphic style and I will be continuing to explore this direction in the coming weeks. Hope you like them! Clicking the link above or the image will take through to my folios. All images ©Adrian Lyon.
Here’s another cover shoot for HiFi Plus, this time of the exquisitely made and sounding Sonus Faber Amati. More images from the shoot were used to open and illustrate the review. I really enjoy getting to grips with curves and highly polished finishes of these products which is always an exciting challenge to light, I just wish they weren’t so heavy! All images ©Adrian Lyon
Here’s our studio mailer as a reminder we have a superbly equipped south London studio base with two shooting areas and drive in access attached to a Victorian house which is often used for additional locations. People photographer Chris Holland and I combine on shoots to work as a two camera unit or run multiple sets ups in the studio to improve productivity, budgets and scheduling.
