Johnny Carr 2014 winner of (RADS)

The Recruitment Advertising Agency

The Recruitment Advertising Awards (RADS) are the most prestigious event in the HR calendar – a showcase of the very best in candidate attraction and employee communications. That’s why wagamama were singing and dancing when they won Best Employer Brand. The campaign gained plaudits from the judges because of some stylish studio photography from Johnny Carr. During a two-day shoot of everyone from Chefs to Servers, Johnny captured what makes the wagamama culture different. The understated quality. The attention to detail. The sense of individuality, authenticity and non-conformity. It’s all there. The essence of wagamama, in how their people look.

‘Johnny’s great. He’s good company, he likes good music and his technical craft is outstanding. It all comes together in vibrant, creative shoots where the end result always eclipses the initial idea. When we want award-winning images, we call him. It’s that simple.’ Dan Birmingham, Creative Director, Jupiter
