We aim to make our clients lives easy by foreseeing issues, solving problems and making sure everything happens when it is supposed to. We can handle every element of a shoot from art buying, through casting, locations, set building and travel plans to post-production and delivery.
We believe that it's communication and personal service that are at the heart of every successful project, the keys to understanding the brief and then realising the client’s vision, whether the client is a brand, an agency or an individual photographer.
To every job we bring 20 years of experience and expertise in managing shoots from the biggest of plans to the tiniest of details. Every Shoot production is supported by our network of collaborators, all specialists in a host of skills and disciplines, that we call on to help fulfil our clients’ ideas.
And that's just what we do.
OCCASIONAL AGENT responds to changing times by offering photographers agent and production support services on a job by job basis.
The internet has changed the game and made it a whole lot easier to get work seen. Buyers are using all the channels - blogs, instagram, facebook and the rest - to seek out and hire photographic talent.
But getting the job is not the whole story. Executing and managing all the elements of a photoshoot can seem daunting and stressful. The pressures of handling business details and organising logistics often overwhelm photographers just at the moment when all they want to do is to focus on the images.
That's where we come in. If you have a job in (or almost in) the bag OCCASIONAL AGENT exists to give you all the help and support you need to make certain your shoot is a success, for your clients and for you. We have the experience and expertise to help with every stage of the process from fee negotiations and usage to the delivery of the final work and anything you might need in between.
'I really want to say how very easy and straightforward it was to work with everyone at Shoot Production on the Sainsburys' Christmas poster campaign 2016. It was a long, pleasant and enjoyable project with rewarding results in the finished product. Even though there were a few grey areas at times; Shoot Production always kept you in the loop.' - Susie Theodorou, Food and Prop Stylist
'Adele and her team are always an absolute pleasure to work with and bring masses of of professional expertise and an often much needed sense of calm under pressure.' Nick Allen, Senior Creative, BSkyB
'Giving a heritage brand like Wedgwood a contemporary look needs both creativity and sensitivity. Rebecca demonstrated both in abundance; her images balance an ambitious fashion-feel with a tone and character that honours Wedgwood's rich past. When it's getting late and your cabbage-flower jellies are starting to melt, you need a talented, organised and committed team around you. Rebecca and the Shoot team delivered.' Roly Grant, Creative Director, BuroCreative
'I’ve worked with Adele and Shoot many times and can honestly say, hand on my heart, they are pretty amazing. They are always up for the challenge, often turning things around with small budgets and tight timings.' Kevin Smith, WCRS
'I have now worked with the team at Shoot on several projects and the level of commitment and efficiency has been outstanding on every single one. We are often faced with short time lines and limited budgets, but without fail, Shoot has pulled it off and have been a joy to work with. Throughout each project there has been a real sense of making things work even when the barriers seemed too high to climb. I couldn't recommend the team more on the basis of experience, efficiency, professionalism and a lovely bunch of people!' Amber Elliott, Campaign Head Sky Living and Sky Arts
'The brief we handed over to Shoot was this - we have x amount of dollars to organise a shoot from Australia in London in next to no time, we want talent, we want wardrobe, we want locations and we want this to all come together on time and on budget without compromising the idea. Shoot went away and delivered exactly that. Working with Shoot was a hassle free experience, the production of this campaign came together seamlessly. Truth is, even if the photographer is the perfect creative for a shoot, the production company is just as important to make the idea come to life.' Mary Darzi, Senior Producer, Clemenger BBDO
'After this amazing day, I want to tell you THANKS for all, many thanks forever Adele, for your professional work and good crew that you have. We felt very nice in all the moments in the shooting and before the shooting. Now I can say that I have a little professional family in London for the next projects. Many thanks Adele forever!' Juan Ross, Director, Ross McFly Productions, Spain.
'I have worked with Shoot Production several times now to produce our Farah Vintage campaigns and have only great things to say about them. They are extremely professional and are able to get all my requests done on time and on budget. I recommend them highly. Mia Zackrisson, European Head of Marketing, Perry Ellis Europe Ltd
'We wanted to drop you a line to say what a fantastic job Shoot did managing our Chicago Fire job. Shoot always
makes a fun, low-stress working environment. But what I really wanted
to say is: What a bunch of badasses! They know what they're doing, and
look good doing it.' Lyndon Wade, The Wade Brothers
