The Return of Gully

The Return of Gully

I'm delighted to announce I've been asked by Morecambe BID to do another series of photos for their #IndependentMorecambe town centre campaign. Here's a reminder of the first set - a mix of quirky and straight images, several of which appeared on empty shop windows in the town. The quirky shots all feature Gully, Morecambe's webcam sensation. Who will Gully be visiting next time around?

It’s a wrap for town’s empty buildings

Last year Morecambe BID commissioned photographer Johnny Bean with a brief to “bring the essence of the business out” without resorting to ‘shoot and scoot’ photography. BID said the intention was to highlight the independence, quirkiness and individuality of Morecambe’s business offer whilst producing a fun and light-hearted campaign.

John O’Neill, Manager of Morecambe BID, commented: “We wanted a different campaign, one that would bring the essence of the businesses out without resorting to the ‘butcher with a plate of sausages’ shot. "Johnny managed to capture the essence of the brief very well and there is a fun element involved, as well. “Every shot features a gull, not as obvious in some as in others, and there’s a quirkiness about it. "In ‘Gullfight on Victoria St.’, Gully, our webcam sensation, is seen packing a six-shooter whilst facing down Colin Brown who’s only armed with a blow dryer.
