All about time

It’s been a while but I am back. Back at last and it’s a wonderful feeling.

Loads of video work and some super stills assignments in far away lands and now I am here, stirring, whirring and coiled like a soft spring.

It’s about time; I am not finished yet!

This is a promo I made for a very good friend of mine. He has an undeniable and innate talent for all things beautifully crafted. I suggest you all take a good look at his work. Hugely keen to do more of these sweet little things

These two edits were a pleasure to shoot. My colleague is an absolute star and so easy to work with.

This edit was great fun and shot in a brilliantly incongruous setting. The light, however, was much too bright and really quite unhelpful…as were the rush hour beeps, bumps and bangs.

These are always good shoots, if not ever-so-slightly intense.

This was crazy! My stills for this can be seen here

In this one, I shot Topshop, Erdem and Hakaan Yildirim. This is the no faces edit

Another wonderful Bespoke Banter production.

British Beauty

A couple of weeks ago I spent the best part of a week working on a job for L’Oreal. The team were truly ace and it was a wonderful assignment – from start to finish.

The visual idea was to shoot a few interviews and then simply get on the streets and piece together great footage of ‘people’; nice close-ups, slow mo etc. I had to direct, which was a challenge and really quite tiring, but amazing fun and hugely rewarding.

So here it is:

The Corporate Conference

This is the second international conference I ve had the pleasure of shooting.

It was quite an enjoyable endeavour, really, and we were a team of three; a cameraman (me), a lovely editor and a producer/spieler.

We shoot throughout the day and then deliver an edit to be played the following morning. Three edits in total.

Oh…and it was in Munich – so could be worse!

Welcome to the Innovation conference.

Kent and Curwen

My first ever attempt at shooting a fashion show! Madness. I never thought I’d find myself working on these jobs – but I am far from complaining!

This was an edit shot for historic British brand, Kent and Curwen, courtesy of clever communications company, Bespoke Banter.

Thoroughly enjoyed every single – sweating-it-out – minute.

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.

Rimmel London

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…

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.
