It’s been a busy year for our photographers. There have been collaborations with the likes of Ford, Honda, Siemens, Lufthansa, and design label Open Ceremony.

As 2017 comes to an end, we wanted to share some of these highlights. So check out the private gallery in the link below.

In the meantime, happy holidays and have a great New Year.

“This will be a challenging workshop where we invite you to venture outside your comfort zone,’ they say.

Rebecca McClelland, former picture editor at The Sunday Times and New Statesman magazines, will also visit as a bonus guest lecturer. She is currently deputy director and curator of The Ian Parry scholarship for young photographers.

Jørn Tomter

Tea & Water Pictures is excited to announce a new photography and magazine project, I Love Shrewsbury.

It follows on from Jørn’s super successful (and still ongoing) I Love Chatsworth Road project, and marks the second chapter in his photo stories about local people and everyday lives.

Like ILCR, it’s about bridging community gaps and connecting people, and documenting a geographical area.

Tea & Water Pictures is working in collaboration with Jørn and Shrewsbury producer, Sam Pooley, from PS wecreate to put it together.

“We aim to chronicle Shrewsbury’s rich history, heritage and charm, but also the changes going on as it becomes more culturally diverse,” says Jørn. “It should be a valuable archive of this town, something for future generations. But also a way to connect people.”

As part of the project, specially-illustrated, charity tea towels of Shrewsbury Coffee House have been made. They are designed by Cherie Jerrard and being sold in aid of homeless charity The Shrewsbury Ark.

The first ILS magazine is due to be published in early 2018.

Jesse Burke

Jesse has had the chance to shoot legendary biologist and storyteller Bernd Heinrich for U.S. magazine Outside.

“I stayed in his cabin and got to know Bernd and his life and land,’ says Jesse. “It was an incredible opportunity.”

“Bernd is a true naturalist and lives off the grid in Maine on 650 acres. No electricity, no road access, just him, his wife and the woods. You will want to read his books and this story.”

Jesse travelled up to Maine a few times to photograph Bernd, also an ultramarathoner, capturing him at home in the wild, holding a raven’s skull and bear-hugging a 50ft pine tree to inspect a crow’s nest at the very top.

‘What an incredible woman…truly an honour and inspiration,” says Gabriela.

Micheal McLaughlin

Micheal has been shooting drive technology at Siemens’ historic factory in Ohio and the workers behind it.

His photos include some really quite beautiful images of machinery at the Norwood manufacturing plant, one of Siemens’ oldest facilities globally.

Micheal’s assignment was to show how its current American workers are trained, and the apprentice programmes making them technically adept.

“One of the most enjoyable aspects of shooting on location is that you never quite know what you will find,” he says.

“And there is almost always someone or something unexpectedly wonderful that shows up.”

The factory makes electric motors used in rail systems and oil, gas and chemical power generation.

It dates back to 1898 and is currently undergoing a $14 million investment in new equipment and machinery.

See more of Micheal’s work below.
