Photographer Jason Tozer collaborated with Dolphin to shoot the Liverpool nightclub Cream’s latest advertising literature. Dolphin’s creative director Rob Petrie explains how Tozer got involved. ‘For the Cream campaign we use a variety of photographers, but for this particular shot we chose Tozer because he is one of the few guys we know who has utmost control over very technical images. Tozer produces strong, unusual, fresh contemporary images. In this case we wanted to show a patriotic summery image with the Cream logo.’
