After twenty years as a graphic designer, working with clients including Toyota, British Airways, adidas, Waitrose and Boots, Clive Booth decided to follow his lifelong ambition of becoming a photographer and filmmaker.
In 2006, whilst a guest at a tribute to Nick Knight hosted by Moet & Chandon, Booth took a series of pictures which caught the attention of Knight, who then invited him to shoot at the following February's London Fashion Week for SHOWstudio. Booth also went on to become Knight's regular set photographer. Commissions soon followed and Booth's career as a fashion, beauty and portrait photographer and filmmaker began.
Booth's association with the still and moving image first started in the early nineties, shooting films in extreme locations for TV including a two month expedition to Spitsbergen in the high Arctic, several Scottish and European filming trips followed including climbing and filming on the Eiger, Switzerland for Blue Peter in 1991 earning him a prestigious silver Blue Peter badge. Other commissions include ad campaigns, commercials and short films for House of Holland, George Michael, Canon Europe, Asus, Intel, House of Amouage, H&M, Ernst & Young, Fiat, Shu Uemura and L’Oréal. His clients have included Louis Vuitton, Moet & Chandon, Silhouette Eyewear and MAC Cosmetics. Booth is a member of the Canon Ambassador Programme and the Adobe Influencer Programme.
