Bon Bon Jewellery

Here's a few photos from a brilliant photoshoot on Friday for Bon Bon Jewellery, who needed some photos of their beautiful handmade jewellery for their new website. It was a huge team effort from Redhead Media (who are designing the new website), Nadine doing hair and makeup and Kirsty our model, and of course Lizzie & Geraldine who had to make all the jewellery for us to photograph. ...

Lola by Marc Jacobs

Had a brilliant day in the studio today, shooting products for a magazine ad. Lots of great stuff, here's my favourites. And here's a photo of the studio setup and me in action! For the photos above, I placed one of the lights underneath the table to create a pool of light round the base of the product and to highlight the details of the bottle. Looking for a product photographer? Contact me on 07731 37 97 27 or studio@ianolsson.com...

Eagle Radio Guildford

I took these presenter photos for Eagle Radio in Guildford a while ago. You may have walked past them many times at the top of Guildford High Street, they're huge! (see the person walking at the bottom of the photo for scale). I finally took this photo of them 'in situ' as I have been meaning to for ages. So, next time you're in town, have a look now you know who took them! PG, Posh Al & Kim Mark Chivers & Darren Scott ...

Walking With Dinosaurs

I had loads of fun playing around with cuddly toys and flashing things for the new Walking With Dinosaurs Tour (coming to an arena near you this July/August). The wearable dinosaur tail was a particular favourite! I photographed all the merchandise for the online shop. As much as I love photographing people, it is sometimes nice to have subjects that don't move. I can spend all the time I want setting up my lighting and don't have to worry about expressions or blinks! To see the online shop with more of my product photos, click here.

Nando’s Opening

Chris & Simon, aka the "Evans Twins" drew the crowds to Nando's new restaurant opening in Glasshouse Street, just off Regent Street. Diners could pose with the boys and take away their own polaroid picture. The restaurant was buzzing and packed full all afternoon. I'll definitely be back next time I'm in the area...

Exclusive Beauty Clinic, Frimley Green

The Exclusive Beauty Clinic in Frimley Green, Camberley has loads of intimate little rooms off of the main reception area for various treatments, massages, waxing etc. My favourite was the slightly spooky blue glow of the tanning machine. I expected the Dr himself to jump out at me any second! Thanks to Jane, Miranda & Andy for keeping me topped up with yummy hot chocolate throughout the day. ...

Nando’s Covent Garden

Thanks to the team at the flagship branch of Nando's in Covent Garden for the great food and cocktails! I can recommend the chicken pitta with cheese and pineapple. Well, it would have been rude not to check the quality of the food and drink that i was photographing wouldn't it?! Slightly different from all the rest, the Covent Garden branch has a very cool bar. There's a wall full of interesting artwork, a massive curved chandelier and old wooden bar furniture. Highly recommended :.) ...

A lovely weekend in the Three Valleys, France

I have just got back from a fantastic long weekend at Chalet Bouquetin in St Jean de Belleville, a picturesque alpine village in the Three Valleys region of France. I had the pleasure of photographing a beautifully converted 18th century monastry. A true home from home. If anyone would like to stay, it sleeps up to 10 and is great for skiing in the massive Three Valleys area, or walking/mountain biking in the summer. For more information, please email jonlerneruk@gmail.com, phone 07541 636 925 or go to the website. ...
