Volker Stevin - Colwyn Bay seafront development - some photos from the construction site.

Construction photography in Colwyn Bay - courtesy of a new international client Volker Stevin. photos of volker stevin wessels colwyn bay development, commercial construction, photography

Brief was to grab my hard hat, steel cap boots and head up there to capture the essence of the project. To appreciate the full scale of the project - I was hoisted into the air in a steel cage. From there I could direct the crane driver to swing me out over the coastline to get some great aerial shots of the site. The new sea-front defence is quite something to behold from the air. It will eventually be a nice "stroller-friendly" promenade which is sure the transform the Colwyn Bay landscape. It's great to be working for a nice big construction firm and there are plenty of upcoming jobs in the pipeline - including a new development in Lancaster in a couple of weeks time.

A very quick photo-driven blog post from the amazing Reflection on the Waterfront opening night in Liverpool. Have had numerous people asking me today how it was - so here it is! A fantastic blues set from Connie Lush got the night off to a cracking start. People poured in from all over the Northwest for the Macula Spectacular and it was great to photograph it with the atmosphere of hundreds of people in front of the lens...

Am currently editing a lifestyle shoot today - then it's back off again tonight to photograph the Liverpool Philharmonic orchestra performing on the waterfront. Gonna be another brilliant night - get down there y'all!

Getting to take photos of the lads getting the Macula Spectacular ready was a fantastic night (middle of the night mind)... and they started with a few of their own ghoulish images being projected onto the Liver Building... everything around, dark, quiet... gave an eerie feeling to the whole scenario. Contrasting that with tonight - the opening night of the "On the Waterfront Liverpool" event - it's sure to be buzzing! Get down there from 10:15 onwards to check out the Liver Building like you've never seen her before!

Commissioned by a Liverpool magazine I was lucky enough to capture a sneak preview with some photos of the "Macula Spectacular" last night. Dramatic 3D animations are being projected onto the walls of the Liver Building and the new Museum of Liverpool - telling the intriguing story of the history of Liverpool. This technical wizardry comes to Liverpool all the way from the Czech Republic and will be on show officially Friday night 10:30pm. I definitely recommend you go down and check it out!

The Return of the King - Kenny Dalglish at the recent opening of LFC Boot Room

image photo of kenny dalglish, manager liverpool football club, lfc, by ant clausen photographyThe much hyped return of King Kenny Dalglish to the manager position of Liverpool Football Club is now starting to fully come to fruition, with recent wins against some of the top premier clubs. When you live in Liverpool - you'd literally have to have your head stuck in a "muddy pool" to not know about the recent return of King Kenny, or anything to do with LFC to be honest! The recent opening of the "Boot Room" which is a fantastic family oriented restaurant steeped in history and a great place to have a meal before or after the game, has been a huge success. I've been there recently to grab some promotional photos and also sample some of their culinary delights. I thoroughly recommend you go do the same!

Could it be fate? Two strangers meet on a recent photoshoot with new Liverpool online company Fatepod.

A fleeting glimpse, a glance cast, a crowded room, the right place at the right time... could it be fate? I was there to find out on a recent photoshoot with new Liverpool-based online company Fatepod...
The basic premise is you may have seen someone, that catches your eye/tickles your fancy, but don't have the courage to make yourself known. Fatepod gives you that opportunity and potentially more! With a recent mention in the Times, the popularity for this concept is soaring. Fatepod is sure to become more than just a fleeting glimpse!

Liverpool locals brave the cold and turn out for John Lennon's Anniversary. Some photos from tonight's moving vigil.

A cold but special night at the inaugural John Lennon Vigil. Was down there to grab some PR photos next to the Peace Monument in Chavasse Park, Liverpool One. Was a great turnout considering the freezing cold temperatures. Lots of Liverpool locals were holding candles and glow sticks whilst singing along, to commemorate the 30 year anniversary of John Lennon's untimely death. Here's some photos from tonight.

A North West Winter - some photos of the frostiness...

It's a lovely thing when the countryside gets blanketed in snow and frost. Problem is finding time to photograph it! Was up St. Helens way yesterday, pulled off the A57 and attempted to capture some of the frostiness.

It's a very cold, but magical time of the year up here...

An Annual Dinner with Liverpool's Finest - some photos of last night's chamber of commerce dinner

photos of Liverpool Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner 2010 with Lord Heseltine by Ant Clausen Liverpool Photographer, photography, pics, event, photography, PR, commercial

A fantastic night had by all at the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner at the ACC Convention Centre last night. Was certainly a bit of a "who's who" in the business world. A great turn out of 581 of Liverpool's finest local businesspeople. The Earl of Derby began proceedings followed by CEO of the Chamber Jack Stopforth. Lord Heseltine gave a compelling speech and further instilled the importance this man has had on Liverpool's past few decades of development. Was great to hear he was ultimately responsible for keeping landmarks such as the Albert Dock from being torn down. Finally business icon Martin Broughton rounded off the speeches. A great night and an optimistic future ahead for the City of Liverpool.

Lord Heseltine hits Liverpool - some photos from this morning.

Pulling up in his late model Maserati - this man knows how to travel in style. Lord Heseltine is here for the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner tonight. I'm just learning more about the man and his ties with Liverpool that date back to the Toxteth riots of the 80's. Will no doubt be an interesting speech this evening in front of the 581 Liverpool businesspeople that are turning out for the annual dinner.

A Chilly evening in Liverpool - a few photos from the Christmas Animation festivities

It was a rather chilly affair grabbing photos at week two of the Culture Liverpool Christmas Animation festivities on the streets of Liverpool!
Exactly one month till Christmas - certainly didn't stop all the hardcore Liverpudlian shoppers from getting out amongst it. Here's a few snaps from the night...

Tonnara di Scopello, Sicily - a quick photo from a recent commission

photos of Tonnara di Scopello Sicily by Ant Clausen Liverpool Photographer, photography, italy, location, pics, event, photography, PR, commercial

Arriving back in the UK this morning - i'm now going through the collection of photos taken at the Tonnara di Scopello - a former tuna factory converted into exclusive residences.

Had an amazing time with two and a half days to capture the Tonnara with a combination of exterior/architectural detail and landscape shots. With no real rush or pending deadlines for the photos, it was pretty darn cool to simply take my time and attempt to capture the various elements of the location at different times of the day.

I will be posting a few shots from the shoot in the coming days, but first up here's a shot taken yesterday evening - one of the last shots I grabbed. This shot was taken with a 30 second exposure. The water was actually quite rough and I had to hold the tripod down due to high winds. The only adjustments made to the photo is a white balance adjustment in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and basic sharpening on output.

Out of Office - taking photos of the Tonnara di Scopello, Sicily

Two months ago I was at the Tonnara di Scopello getting married. Now i'm being commissioned to head back and grab some promotional photos. I must remember to hand my business card out more often! As it's pretty much my favourite place on earth - i've already got an extensive archive of shots of the Tonnara (a converted tuna factory on the northwest coast of Sicily), however the rooms of the Tonnara have not been professionally photographed. So I'll be spending the first half of next week doing just that. The photos will then be used for general marketing purposes etc. Email coverage is few and far between but I'll try and post a couple of blog updates from the piazza in Scopello village. Ciao ragazzi!

Some photos from Liverpool Chamber of Commerce platform lunch at Panoramic Restaurant

Yesterday I found myself taking photos 34 floors up at the Panoramic restaurant Liverpool, for another successful Chamber of Commerce Platform Lunch. Not only is it a great chance to meet and network with other local businesses - but you also get to dine in the best restaurant in town, with the best views out over the whole city. There was a great turn out and some great networking to be had across a wide range of local business people attending. Here's a few photos from the event...
