Commercial Work

Commercial work accounts in large part for much of my day to day freelancing. Each job can be very different from the last making it very interesting. I undertake most kinds of work from small 1 hour shoots to large year long commissions.

Recent work has included a 3 day documentation of the mothballing of Aberdeen Music Hall, a 10 month long commission from LESS to produce The Faces Behind Our Food a touring exhibition of portraits and stories of local Food Producers, and a commission to produce a poster image for an upcoming show by local Theatre Company Attic Door Productions.

“Eureko is an international trade and export services company based in the North West of England. Whenever we need great photos of our team for social media, website or general promotional purposes, we turn to Johnny Bean. Quite simply, he’s one of the most experienced, talented and easy-to-deal-with photographers in the region. Taking photos for a company’s commercial image and identity requires the artist to grasp the psychology of the specific business sector as well as of the individual’s product or services. Johnny possesses a rare knack for getting inside the intangible business mentality and business personality and revealing them both through facial expression, posture, backdrop and those telling minutiae of clothing, colour and group configuration. And he achieves all of this with an informality and, frequently too, with a whacky (and relaxation-inducing) sense of humour. We’ve also been to his public exhibitions where he captures pretty effortlessly what is striking, popular and sensuous in the everyday world of the present. It goes without saying therefore that Eureko Associates recommend him most strongly as a naturally gifted and versatile photographer for all seasons and occasions.” – Vivien Hacker, MD, Eureko Associates Ltd.
