... Of The Week
This week we bring you MULTI-TALENTED PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE WEEK. Kerry Harrison was recently commissioned by creative agency Sixteen Hands to direct four short films, shoot a bank of images of children and lastly to compose and record the music for an animated film for Children's Social Work Matters. The brief for the photography was to create natural, light imagery for use on a Children's Social Work campaign. The aim was to give the impression of the positive outcome of social work. LPA Production cast four models and Kerry shot at three locations to show a variety of urban and countryside environments. Extra care was taken in both the styling and locations to ensure that everything fitted with the branding.
The four documentary style films were directed to highlight some of the challenges and reality of being a social worker. Featuring real social workers, they demonstrate the pride and passion these people have for their careers and the people they help. Tara's video, shot in the iconic Sheffield Park Hill Estate also talks about her past and how this inspired her choice of career. Through his connection with the subjects Kerry managed to create truly emotional videos for use on the www.childrenssocialworkmatters.org website.

Finally Kerry wrote and recorded the music for the animated film and the four documentaries with Rob Julian.
