People often ask us: ‘What does a typical week at JMPUK look like?’ Without wanting to stray too far into cliché territory, there isn’t really such a thing as a typical week.
This week, for example, the team shot and edited a boxing preview video for Sky Bet with Sky Sports’ Anna Woolhouse and former world middleweight champion Darren Barker in London, as well as a horse racing preview shoot with ITV Racing’s Ed Chamberlin and Oli Bell for the same client at Ascot Racecourse.
There was also a major commercial photographic shoot for Exeter Chiefs, and Bristol City’s busy pre-season media day, which included three set-ups.
On top of this, our team worked on a promotional video and stills for Almondsbury Garden Centre, several live sporting events – among them the Premiership Rugby Sevens at Northampton and many pre-season football fixtures, including our photographer Robbie Stephenson returning from Bristol City’s pre-season trip to Marbella 24 hours later than scheduled after his initial flight was cancelled.
We were also at the well-attended Evening With Gary & Lee Johnson at Ashton Gate Stadium as the official event photographer, and still had time to pitch our video and PR services to an exciting potential new client, as well as continuing the recruitment process for the positions of Camera Operator and Video Editor for which we recently advertised.
So, all in all, that just about sums up a typical week at JMPUK – for the main reason that next week is likely to look very different indeed.
