Queen Mary 2 remastered – Press release and videos for my work with Cunard for the Queen Mary 2 refit
Earlier this year I was commissioned by Cunard to capture photographs featuring the opulence, splendour and grandeur of Cunard Line’s former office buildings in Britain and North America. The images are to be used on the fleet’s flagship Queen Mary 2 during her major 2016 refit. Cunard Buildings in Liverpool, Southampton and New York each feature in a specially-commissioned set of images to be displayed in the ship’s suites and staterooms when she re-enters service following her three-week refit this June.

This has been an incredible assignment. Starting in Liverpool, where the Cunard Building is still such a dominant façade on that famous waterfront, was amazing. The exterior of the building is striking and once you arrive inside it is stunning. Everywhere I turned, from the old luggage areas in the basement to the former First Class Lounge on the top floor and even the roof with its view across the city, I was spoilt for choice. In New York, the inside of the Broadway building is simply breath-taking. At Southampton, the Grade II listed South Western House with its long association with ocean travel, was also an inspirational location. All of these buildings are so important to Cunard and it has been a privilege to visit each one and record a small aspect of the part they have played in both the history of Cunard and the maritime history of these great cities.
I was lucky enough to be able to visit the ship and see some of my photography in place, unfortunately I didn’t have time to get professional shots of the work in place, but I did manage to get a couple on my phone.
