It’s been an awful long while since I was last here and for that I feel really rather terrible…

…so I am here to make partial amends. Here’s a few bits-and-bobs shot over a fair number of months.

Still Images

I am a happy man!

Over four years ago I started out as a photographer. Little did I know at the time but a real and necessary transition into video work was essential to my survival…so…I started shooting more moving pictures and less stills.

But now! I ve managed to secure some wonderful photography clients that have levelled out my ratio of Video:Stills to 60:40 – and I am happy about that!

A couple of weeks ago I was sent up north to photograph Manchester Grammar School for a great publishing company.

Here’s a few shots…

LCM and Fudge

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!

Visual Research

A large part of what I do centres about visual research. You receive the brief, the location of where you’re to be shooting and then the you’re off, on towards your destination to illustrate the story using both video and stills.

Simple and I love it.

The following photos and showreel are a small example of what I love best…visual storytelling.

The Flour Pot

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!

Cornish Wave IV

For four years now Anthony Lambert OBE has organised an informal, cathartic and hugely exciting few days down in Polzeath, Cornwall. Spinning dits, surfing and a healthy quantity of port reign supreme in what has become a regular and necessary meeting of friends.

A great grouping of wounded Royal Marines, Surf Action grafters and a few lads similar to myself comprise this wonderful lot. It really is a feature of the year and the best, most extraordinary, aspect of this meeting is witnessing the incredible progress made by lads brutally affected by war. It is absolutely inspirational to see their immense strength in adversity and optimism in place of despair. My hat goes off to you lads.

I could only stay a day so photos are limited – and I couldn’t even get in the sea!

Welcome to CW IV.
