A photography toolkit for P&O Cruises

The brand team at P&O Cruises asked us to create a photography ‘toolkit’ for A Taste of Madeira, an exclusive new shore excursion developed by wine expert and P&O Cruises Food Hero Olly Smith. The excursion, at the famous Blandy’s vineyard near Funchal, gives unique insight into the process of making the world-renowned fortified wine.

Olly’s time was limited so the shoot schedule required meticulous upfront organisation in London. But even the best-laid plans couldn’t keep Olly’s popularity and gregarious personality in check. Every time he got recognised (a lot) he stopped for a chat, then there was the little matter of endless tastings of award-winning wine… Creating content can be pretty tough sometimes.
