Pete Price hits the beach, Liverpool styles...

Some say Liverpool doesn't have a beach... well that's all changed down at Liverpool One. All we need now is a summer!
Went down to grab some photos of the launch night tonight and for about half an hour, the sun came out! Amazing transformation with palm trees, cocktail bars and the largest portable roller coaster in the world. Fun for the whole family! Definitely worth a look if the evenings turn out to be balmy, warm and dry at some stage... finger's crossed!

Model Portfolio - Emily from Liverpool

A little while back I photographed the model portfolio of Emily. Watch this space for Liverpool's next top model! It was a free model portfolio shoot with Emily signing a model release so we could use the images for our stock photography sites. That way Emily gets international exposure and high res images from the shoot and Ant Clausen Photography receives a small percentage from future image sales. We're currently looking for models for similar shoots, with stock photography being the main theme. The first test shoots will be unpaid, and if the model is successful and has the look we're after, there will be future paid work.Contact Ant Clausen Photography on 07814 457 247 for more details. Here's some photographs from Emily's shoot.

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

Some photos from the recent Barclays branch opening - Hull.

One of the things i'm lovin about photography here in the North West is it's taking me to a few new places I might not otherwise see. Hull for example. Barclays have recently opened a new branch here, located centrally in the town square. Here's a few photos of the people that both make up the town and visited the new branch that day. I was working this job courtesy of Steve Stills photography who is based in London.barclays-14 [nggallery id=16]

Another great networking event with the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce. Held at the cool Osqa restaurant bar on Roscoe Street - there was lunch laid on, a bit of speed-networking and presentations by local business people. Next event will be when the tennis comes to town.

A Photo from New Zealand...

Think i'm over the jet-lag now, so with a bit of luck the blog will start to roll again.Here's one of my favourite shots from my recent trip back home to New Zealand. Taken at sunrise on a beach north of where I grew up - I guess it's the subtle moody tones of the images I like. Last year I was chasing big dramatic landscapes. This year, so far, i'm enjoying more of a toned-down feel. mangawhai-1 To check out some more of my print images - please click here: ant clausen prints

HOT models night at Chaya...

ant_6143Hmmmmmmmm scorchin' even... let's not beat around the bush... The inaugural "red carpet" event took place on Thursday "slap bang" in the action district of Liverpool. Many pretty people adorned both the bar and the cat walk for an evening of 'decadence delirium' sure to please any self-respecting young, hip, wannabe "be-seen-type" individual. The best thing about it is there'll be an exclusive night on the last Thursday of every month... so everybody can grab a slice of the action. The lads behind the magic are a couple of NYC entrepreneurs here in liverpool looking to raise the bar in everything that is "late night - don't tell the mrs." Here's the shots from the night - click here: models night chaya Churrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!

The Mystery Tipper Hits Liverpool

tipper-1Coming from a marketing background - I always appreciate a good campaign - and this one was a cracker! Red C Marketing from Manchester came up with the mystery tipper campaign to incentivise taxi drivers who wore their sticker on their cabs.

And today a lucky Liverpool cabbie's ship came in.

After the cheque was presented to a rather happy cab-driver, we drove round Liverpool landmarks to take a few photographs.

It's all about the networking...

Having photographed quite a few networking events recently - it's interesting to note their increasing popularity. There was a great turn out at the most recent "striding out" event at the Mandarin restaurant, Victoria street. Perhaps it was due to the quality of speakers present. The theme was "trends for 2009 and how these will affect young entrepreneurs. Speaking were Phil Blything, director of Glow New Media, Claire Walker, freelance sector development manager for Merseyside ACME, Richard Bamford, Executive Chairman of Enterprise Ventures and Councillor Warren Bradley, Leader of Liverpool City Council.A great night and some valuable insight was gained. Here's some shots from the night. Please click here striding out liverpool

Snow on the rooftops of Liverpool...

snow-1One of the bonuses of living in the top floor of an apartment is that you can look out the window and immediately see Liverpool from a fresh new angle... you can then poke your camera out the window and take a photograph! So when it was icy cold yesterday morning... that's what I did. It was amazing seeing Liverpool blanketed in a fresh coat of snow. I then rode my pushbike down to Sefton Park and grabbed a couple of quick shots. Will be uploading a few more photographs shortly. sefton-1

Lightworks Photography Studio in Static

Have been busy painting the new "Lightworks" photography studio in Liverpool and had to endure an afternoon at Ikea yesterday buying some funky furniture. Dubbed "the Lightworks" it will be taking the collective space of Ant Clausen Photography and Deana Clarke Photography to a new level with a permanent studio set-up and client meeting area. Pretty exciting stuff with the planned use of the space being utilised for creative portraits - fashion/corporate... you name it!Stay tuned for some shots once set-up and blog entries to let you know what's happening there. Ciao!

The Bloggers Block..

An interesting theory - what happens when a "blogger" gets a bit too busy and perhaps doesn't have time to add the attention and detail needed to keep a blog ticking along. I imagine a similar occurrence when a writer gets writer's block and they stop writing for a while until they find inspiration from somewhere... and start writing again. I guess one of the bonuses of writing a photography blog is that you can always let the photos do the talking. And that's definitely a bonus, and in a lot of ways - that's how it should be. So today in "show and tell"..without further adieu... here's one of my favourite shots from the past year, as it embraces everything I stand for. Firstly you have to have healthy respect for the ocean before you go out into big surf. You have to have a sense of adventure and daring to take on a big wave and ride it with grace and you have to enjoy the lifestyle that goes along with everything to do with "our mother ocean"3d-5-5

Flaring Cocktails at Chameleon...

Back again to photograph the hottest new bar in Liverpool. This time the focus is on the cocktails. "Flaring" which is the bartending equivalent of juggling - was on display and definitely a challenge in low light. I opted to shoot with available light to show movement in the bottles/shakers etc and hope the bartenders weren't dancing around too much. Was quite happy with the results (see photos below)I definitely recommend checking the bar out at some point - will be back in there when they've got some live acts playing.
