A flood of inspiration

A place to feel informed, inspired, excited or even a little bit annoyed at times.

BE PREPARED… to get soaked! /January 2019

We were asked to help a local Scout group in their preparation for attaining the Scout photography badge. In the spirit of the many Scout camps that I attended in the pouring rain, I decided to demonstrate the principles of shutter speed by exploding water balloons over a couple of willing volunteers. I managed to capture spectacular water droplets in motion as well as some hilarious expressions, whilst hopefully inspiring the next generation of photographers!



HO HO HO!🎄 /December 2018

In the words of the great Noddy Holder…..’It’s Christmas!!!!!!!!!’…… which means it’s time to ‘deck the halls’, open the mince pies and indulge in the endless Christmas repeats on TV with a warm mug of hot chocolate!

From the whole team at Flood we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy New year!

A Day out in Donny /November 2018

Despite Doncaster not being the most glamorous destination for a location shoot, we relished the opportunity to photograph Sharps latest collection of bedroom furniture down there.

A cold warehouse didn’t dampen our enthusiasm either….although a pair of long johns will be packed in my overnight bag next time!❄️


Run of the mill /October 2018

This is a project I’ve been really excited about photographing. It’s a massive restoration job on the outskirts of Burnley not far from where I went to school.

The town seems to be on the up….it’s a shame the same can’t be said for the football team!




Are you sitting comfortably? /September 2018

We certainly were when we kicked off September with Sofology’s latest ‘trend’ shoot. Inspired by Pantones colour predictions for next year. This was our favourite due to it’s edgy styling whilst managing to retain a feeling of ‘coziness’.

A glass of red in front of the fire would do nicely……bottoms up!





Och aye the ‘view’! /August 2018

A  week long break in Scotland for some R&R was just what I needed after a busy summer in the studio.

It was a time to empty the mind and take in some of the incredible scenary the British Isles has to offer.

I also braved the chilly swells of the North Atlantic to ‘enjoy’ a spot of Bodyboarding. Those icy waters made me appreciate the trip to the whiskey distillery even more!!




A flood of babies /July 2018

There’s been lots of baby talk over the past few weeks in anticipation of the arrival of two little bundles of joy!

Congratulations to team members Sam and Paul who both became fathers this month to beautiful girls Erin and Ella.

…..here’s to crying babies, sleepless nights and countless nappy changes.

It’s all worth it of course!

Spin to win! /June 2018

Being keen fans of the sport, we are delighted to sponsor a small, local dedicated junior cycling team. The Green Jersey are posting some impressive times & have a number of high placing & wins in national competition.We wish them well especially with the Junior Tour of Ireland on the 10th July, the Flood training kit looks like a winner!

Hive of activity /May 2018

Better start ironing the shirts!

We are really buzzing to be shortlisted for a Hive Creative and digital award this month which see’s us facing some of the best in the business from our local area. #hiveawards18

No April showers in Bath! /April 2018

It was lovely getting out of the studio for a few days this month and enjoying the great British sunshine, breathing in some fresh country air and shooting some brand new bedding designs with the Cabbages and Roses team 🙂

Around the block. /March 2018

Following on from the latest trend which is ‘Colour blocking’ we decided to use this with maximum effect on the latest Sofology room sets.

What do you think??

All in good time /February 2018

We’ve managed to make time to put one of our new brand signage ideas into practice as part of our studio spruce up…so there’s definitely no excuse to be late then.

and…..Action! /January 2018

Its been a busy few weeks shooting stills alongside a large film crew for Sofology sofas and quite challenging at times manoeuvring around ladders, boom arms, babies and dogs!!

But against all obstacles and Lou’s stopwatch, the end results speak for themselves.


A flood of good cheer /December 2017

…mince pies, sherry, sprouts, tangled sellotape, Monopoly, slippers and Home Alone.

Whatever your Christmas brings let’s hope it’s a restful one.

Happy Christmas from all of us here.

Big in Japan /November 2017

Konnichiwa 🙂

November brought a change from the normal shooting day in the studio (for Paul anyway) with an amazing and exciting trip to Japan. Which is one place everyone should go if they can.

We travelled all across Japan in a fun packed 2 week break taking in all the sights and loving all the different scenery, food and wonderful people………just don’t forget to pack your camera!!


A flood of changes /September 2017

We’ve changed our spots, not only with a fresh lick of paint but also a new name – evolving from Lime Creative to Flood.

There are many reasons why we thought the time was right for a change but in short, we’d simply outgrown our old brand. So we commissioned Telling Stories to help us define both our ability and our personality.

Our new name is underpinned by the simple idea that we’re really rather good at creating natural light, which is what many of our customers suggested was our super power… Well, that and the fact we’re a pretty good bunch to work with too.

We’d love to hear what you think of our rebrand so please do drop us a line.

Niels, Paul & the Flood team

Christmas comes early (again) /August 2017

On the road again to that there London town – we got into the festive spirit early (without touching a drop) by spending four days shooting Christmas in August… Is it too early to get excited about cranberry sauce?


Making a big splash /July 2017

Following a huge bathroom set build in our very own studio here in Darwen, enjoying an exciting day with the film crew was also a welcome added bonus.

The build was pretty demanding, but it was also very rewarding to work on such a large and complex room set and the results were well worth all the effort.


Peaks and troughs /May 2017

Who says photographers don’t know how to have fun? Well, probably no one actually… and although a day tackling Striding Edge then Helvellyn isn’t for a stroll for the faint hearted, we call it fun.

A great day was followed by a lively night out (obviously) in the name of team building – watch this space for our next adventure.
