I have now shot my first jobs in the crazed and frenetic world of a fashion show.
London Collections: Men was my first intrepid adventure into the fine art aestheticism of the catwalk. Angles, lines, textures and croissants.
You find yourself in a trance like focus, frantically attempting to cover-off your shot list – all the while fighting off other intrusive pieces of glass, both mirror and lens. It’s ace, particularly when you’re working with a wonderful team.
Although an edit – largely shot by me for another brand – has yet to be signed off, this piece below features a few of my clips towards the end. The rest (and majority) was shot by a most capable cameraman, Martin Roach.
Company: Bespoke Banter
Produced and Edited: Catrin Griffiths
First Camera: Martin Roach
Second Camera: Me!
Here’s a little sneaky peek at one of the jobs I am rather excited about.
I was on second camera and stills – a partnership of two wonderful and extraordinary disciplines. Do give me more, some more and a little more please, sir.
The whole team; models, make-up and production were an absolute dream to work with – and collectively, we powered through two LONG days.
Video edits to follow…but in the meantime…
Make-Up: Kirstin Piggott
Company: BESPOKE BANTER
Produced and Directed: Sam Orams
DOP and First Camera: Martin Roach (he’s pretty special!)
Second Camera and Stills: Me!
Welcome to make-up specialists, KIKO.
This was a fun job to shoot, slider and all. Thank you Bespoke Banter for producing and editing such a jazzy store-opening promo.
I am not one really for cosmetics, but you can find this glossy shop on Regent Street.

Welcome to HelloTV and The Scott Report.
Again, these were shot by me but orchestrated and edited by the lovely lot at Bespoke Banter.
It was quite the experience and I don’t believe I ve ever met so many popular faces in such an intensely short space of time! Mental.
Getting the sound levels right was a challenge to say the least!
Welcome to Brighton based bakery, The Flour Pot; a wonderful establishment full of wonderful people, making wonderful breads, buns, sandwiches and pastries – and I know, I ve tasted them!
I thoroughly enjoyed this job. It reminded me of why I do what I do and why I must continue doing what it is I do.
Shooting food – and any subject for that matter – in situ without overly manipulating the environment is a brilliantly liberating experience. Lines, textures and light naturally create wonderful compositions and all that is required of the photographer is to open his eyes and get shooting. Brilliant!
