Cinemagraph Photographer / GIF Maker & Creator

Joe is an experienced Cinemagraph photographer who specialises in shooting, creating and making Cinemagraphs and GIF’s. Joe’s been working with GIF’s and Cinemagraphs for around 4 years now and has created them for brands such as: Adidas, Shell, Loreal/Vichy, Direct Line and Another Austria.

Cinemagraphs are a new type of media that many brands are just starting to pick up on. Also known as GIFs or living or animated photos. They’re great for social media, digital advertising, online adverts and digital outdoor.

What is so good about creating GIF’s and Cinemagraphs is that they can be easily incorporated into an existing stills shoot. Meaning you can generate moving content without the hassle and expense of an additional shoot.

How Are Cinemagraphs Made?

Joe has developed a few different methods of creating Cinemagraphs and GIFs, that all fit into existing workflows. The method chosen depends on a couple of factors such as the animation required, the lighting style and final output requirements.

One technique involves using studio flash which means the look of the Cinemagraph or GIF can be identical to the look of the finished campaign stills. This is great for continuity across multiple media outputs and different channels.
