Royal London needed artwork for its themed conference suite. Each room is named after a different London bridge and pictures were needed that reflected this.
After showing a team from Royal London our work on location at another client site we took a detailed brief. We proposed a shortlist of alternative prints, finishes and costings. We discussed the finishes available and after a few iterations the short list was narrowed down to a final selection.
The result was twenty uplifting canvas prints. A variety of different styles were adopted. As an example, for the Chelsea Bridge room we produced a giant panorama. By way of contrast, for the Southwark Bridge room we produced a quadrant of smaller canvas prints. For the other rooms either single canvases or small portfolios were installed.
Nichola Fernandez, Interim Facilities Manager said "Our initial thought was to commission a photographer to shoot images for us. But we found the Mr Smith collection online and realised that we could buy the prints we needed from their catalogue. This was a cost effective solution for us and we were really pleased with the result."
Quite simply, the best photography of London I have ever seen

Getting shots like these takes years of practice and technical know how … outstanding creative vision.
