The Recession Busting Liverpool One - a photo from yesterday's shoot in the snow...

liverpool_one_shopping-1 Had a great day at Liverpool ONE yesterday photographing images for their 2013 promotional archive. This was the last shot taken - and it really just shows that at 0 degrees and in the snow - people are out and about enjoying shopping at Liverpool's finest shopping area.

Right. Time to pack my bags now. Off to New Zealand for two months - where there'll be more photoshoots... but this time on the beach, in the sun!

Look out for some sunnier, warmer updates from here on in!

This Red Chair Has Your Name On It - Liverpool ONE Summer Beach Has Launched!

Photo of Liverpool One summer beach launch Whoever said that England doesn't have a summer?

The sun was shining, the cocktails flowing and the funky band were a' playin! Yep it's that time of year again when Liverpool ONE is creatively converted into everything that's good about going to the beach. Well worth a look this weekend - if we all collectively do a little sun dance... there'll be lazy hazy days of summer to be had down at the beach. Go check it!

Some Corporate Portraits for the Liverpool One Team...

A perfect winter's morning greeted us as we hit the Liverpool One outdoor shopping complex for some team portraits. The marketing team had a massive year last year with some fantastic events going on. From Gok Wan's Fashion Runway to X Factor stars Rebecca Ferguson and Marcus Collins live in concert - there was always something happening! We were lucky with some soft morning light. We hit a few locations to accentuate the diversity of Liverpool One. Although clean black and white studio portraits can be very effective - I also like getting out and about and utilising the environments in which people work. It gives a nice natural and more contextual feel to the photos. Donna, the Liverpool One Marketing Director - was about to be published in an article relating to the state of retail. We went to both Peter's Lane and Paradise Street to get some portraits that had the necessary retail "feel" to them.

X Factor Star Rebecca Ferguson sings in Liverpool on the eve of her album launch - some photos from last week's event

As it's been proven time after time - the best artist in the X-Factor competition doesn't always win. One such artist - Rebecca Ferguson had a special homecoming gig in Liverpool One recently. She even spared time to have a cup of tea and a few photos with some fans nearby before the concert. Singing outside in Liverpool One the cheers of a maddening crowd soon hushed as her distinctive soul/jazz voice found its rhythm. Her daughter then came on stage and made the show that much more special. A local Liverpool lass with a rare talent and natural humility to boot. I'm looking forward to having a listen to the whole album "Heaven" which has now been released. If the rest is as good as the singles i've heard already... it's sure to be a wee gem...

Liverpool Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner - some photos from another spectacular occasion

Was delighted to be invited to photograph the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner again for the third year running. The return to the spectacular Anglican Cathedral made my job a lot easier with such a stunning backdrop. I had to remind myself that there were well turned-out Liverpool businesspeople in the frame also! The introductory speech was from the Earl of Derby, followed by Chamber chairman Jack Stopforth. The key note speaker was Charlotte Hogg - head of retail division - Santander. As a sponsor of formula one racing - I soon worked out why there was a Formula One racing car in the nave of the church! They all had positive messages for the future of Liverpool and the Northwest. The evening was bought to a close nicely with 80's group Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. Anyway - enough banter - here's some photos from the night...

The sun hangs low in the winter sky and casts long shadows on Paradise Street - Liverpool ONE.

liverpool one paradise street in the winter by ant clausen photographer A cold, yet perfect afternoon for photography. Working for Liverpool ONE I had a couple of hours to capture and update their portfolio of images. This time of the year is just magical for taking photos with the soft light casting long shadows on the city streets.

It's official - Christmas has hit Liverpool - some photos from Liverpool One's festivities last night

Liverpool One kicked off Christmas in fine style last night with all sorts of icy shennanigans going on. First up - grabbed a few photos of the 32 Santas jumping on the North Star ride. Next was Santa's Grotto followed by the rest of the attractions including an ice skating rink, climbing wall and a toboggan run.
Next week the Liverpool council will be turning on the lights of the city with their fantastically colourful parade through the streets - so stay tuned!

Something for the petrol-heads! Pageant of Power, Cholmondeley photos 2010

A break in the weather gave me a window of half an hour to run round and grab some photos of the Pageant of Power, Cholmondeley. Lucky there was some sun otherwise there would only be close-up shots of V12 engines! A fantastic setting down in the Cheshire country-side, the pageant of power is essentially a festival for those who prefer the smell of gasoline to music. Although some might argue, the sound of a supercharged V12 engine is music to ones ears!

Summer Beach Volleyball in Liverpool ONE - some photos from Tuesday night

After raining all day, the sun came out and I headed down to Liverpool ONE to grab some photos of the new beach volleyball set-up. And what a fantastic set-up it is! Beside the new outdoor plunge pool and next to the tropical cocktail bar is where it can be found. Perfect for the balmy summer evenings, grab a team of workmates and head on down for a quick game of beach volleyball followed by an ice cold cocktail!

Photos from One Park West Show Apartments - a sneak preview.

Described as being the "jewel in the duke's crown" the final phase of Liverpool One is being implemented. These are the One Park West 17 storey apartments overlooking the Mersey River. I was there for the grand opening by the Duke of Westminster a few months back. Now the apartments are on the market and are being snapped up by savvy Liverpudlians and investors further afield. I was there on Thursday to take a few promotional shots for their new marketing collateral. So, hot off the press, here's a sneak preview inside... one, park, west, photography, liverpool, events, commercial, portrait, photos, photographer, chester, manchester, apartments, wirral, ant, clausen, photographer

One Park West and the Duke of Westminster

The 19th of December signified the official opening of the One Park West Apartment Complex, Liverpool. To see some of my pictures on the BBC website click here. The Duke of Westminster was present to open his latest venture after the Liverpool One shopping complex is thriving in the Liverpool Christmas rush. Also present were some budding artists of the future. Here's a few photos from the occasion:

The One Park West Panorama, Liverpool

Due to open before Christmas - the dramatic waterfront block that is One Park West will be tempting potential buyers with views out over the Mersey and the new cosmopolitan area of Liverpool One.The Brief - to capture the views to entice potential buyers in with the dramatic panoramas they can see from their new balconies. The solution... grab the Manfrotto, the D300 and then stitch like mad using Photoshop CS3. Panoramas are great if viewed say 1 metre plus across... but you often need a bit of close up detail too... so I grabbed another shot where you can clearly see the Albert Dock a bit clearer. Then wandering back to my eco-friendly bicycle I looked back and noticed the sky had turned quite a cool shade of red - so I grabbed another shot and then did a quick HDR render on it to bring out a bit more detail.
