"Shooting stills as part of a live action shoot can be tricky in my experience, but Warren was ready for anything. Our campaign took us up mountains, inside skyscrapers and in family back yards and he was comfortable in all settings. I felt confident that he understood my brief and was able to capture both the more orchestrated setups and off-the-cuff moments with ease. Ours was a technically challenging shoot with many setups requiring Warren to deal with existing lighting but he commanded the space and the talent perfectly and my client and I are delighted with the results."

"Photographer Warren Baynes shot with us on a stills campaign on the back of TVC in April 2022.This was for a German credit bank called Auxmoney.

The client had chosen him amongst many photographers due to his convincing portfolio. He is an experienced photographer and understands the pressure of a film set. 

He conducts his work effortlessly and in a professional manner, the client was very happy with the quality of his images.

Warren is fun to work with, besides his photographic skills, he is very accommodating and flexible."

"I worked with Warren on a multi-day campaign shoot for a global pharmaceutical company. The campaign included multiple deliverables across digital, print, video and social and we also chose to combine the photography and moving image shoot. 

The campaign covered two completely different brands which required two sets of creative, multiple cast, different styling, and a number of locations, activities and set-ups. There were obvious challenges, mostly around the activities, talent and locations, not to mention the tight schedules for photography and moving image. Warren proved to be the best photographer for us in this situation. 

He has the ability to remain calm and engaged in the most challenging of situations - whether it was shooting with young children on skateboards, or dangling off a cliff-face shooting an action shot of a rock climber - Warren was on it! Warren is not only an amazing creative photographer, but he is also loads of fun and an absolute pleasure to work with. It makes a difference when working under pressure to have someone you can trust, but to also lighten the mood. My ECD and I were 100% confident that Warren would not only get the shot, but we also knew he would deliver beyond expectations, and with a smile. I can't wait to work with him again."
