Whilst making arrangements to move safely out of lockdown and back onto shoot production, Phil Fisk and his agent Louise Turner at Flock took up the opportunity to curate a beautiful shoot, with a talented team, in a wonderful shoot space. As a team they were all keen to create and wanted to explore how the new shoot guidance from the APA/AOP (Advertising Producers Association / Association of Photographers respectively) worked in practice. It was essential for everyone involved to follow the guidance to the letter. Challenges were met and all aspects of the shoot ran very smoothly. The initial concept started with a conversation with Phil and quickly developed into project involving both stills and moving image, all turned around in 2 weeks. We catch up with Phil to find out more about his career and the inspiration behind creating Separation a new project to come out of lockdown.
