Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Our brief was to promote Canon EOS, a leading brand of DSLR cameras.
Beginning with the insight that great photography is about being inspired, we
launched a new era of branded entertainment for Canon designed to inspire
photographers of all levels. We began with a documentary series called
‘Seconds/With’, which has created a new channel for professional photographers
to inspire the wider photography and creative communities.

Creative Execution
‘Seconds/With’ is build around the insight that while a professional photographer
spends decades behind the lens, the shots they value most add up to just
fractions of a second. We sat down with four of the world’s leading photographers
– Darren Jew, Simon Harsent, Craig Golding and Stephen Dupont, and asked
them to consider their years of photography, with a key fraction of time they have
found that is invaluable to them. The juxtaposition of time from their entire career,
and the one fraction of a second they cherish, gave a rich insight into the life and
craft of professional photography.
‘Seconds/With’ launched online as a series of four online episodes - The first four
photographers created the first four episodes of Series One. The response from
the photography community and the creative community as a whole has been so
successful, that the series will remain ongoing as a new arm of branded content
for Canon.

Results and Effectiveness
By creating a new channel for professional photographers to inspire the larger
community, ‘Seconds/With’ has began a new conversation between Canon and
the photography community, and marked a new era of entertainment for the
The response from photographers and the creative community has been so successful, that the series will remain ongoing as a new channel of branded content for Canon.
