My photograph of a storm clearing in the Highlands, photographed with Vismedia during a recent assignment for Drax Group plc has been shortlisted in the Motif Collective “Storms” photography awards.
The photograph was taken as I waited for the low clouds to clear from the Cruachan Power station. I looked back down the valley and saw this incredible moment where the storm clouds still lingered but it was clear in the distance.

"Life, on Intergen" is a new film showing the people behind the energy company Intergen. Banks Film | Photo have worked with Intergen for ten years covering their power projects in the UK, Netherlands and Mexico.
Since its founding in 1995, InterGen has had a successful track record of developing, constructing, and operating power projects around the world. Intergen has always strived to be a leading energy company generating safe, reliable and sustainable power in the communities in which we operate.
The film and images were created to reflect Intergen’s core values of safety, integrity, teamwork, entrepreneurship and community.
I wanted to show the people behind the company, and Intergen as a global team of experts in all levels, aligned and motivated by a common goal to forward the long-term value of the company.
It was also important to show Intergen’s commitment to contributing to the quality of life in the communities where they operate, and to respect the people and cultures of the communities.
