Nostalgia school shoot

This collection of images is from a Getty Images shoot. We wanted to make this set of shots believable and gritty, not too polished. Shot at a school in inner city London, we were able to make use of the playground and gym which reminded me of my childhood school.  We chose a colour palette to enhance the feel of nostalgia. The gym styling was also aimed at a retro feel. As with most shoots involving children, the key was to shoot at their height and run around with them. Letting them control the action kept it real and believable.
