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.

Company: Bespoke Banter

Director: Scott Wimsett

First Camera: Me!

Second Camera: Sam Orams

Return

The Bronica ETRSi is my new toy and this Christmas I thought I would run a few rolls through it and see what happened. I am quite impressed but feel the next rolls of film will be better; the auto exposure prism finder is mighty helpful but just cannot compete with the light meter in my D700.

Different cameras are much like different cars or motorbikes. You quickly learn the characteristics of each vehicle you use and how much you can push it or pull it. I certainly need to rack up some more miles on this wonderful Bronica.

Photos below are shot with fuji pro 400. I am eager to explore colour films – as well as black and white, of course.

Daydreaming with…James Lavelle

Working for PR companies certainly has its merits.

The end of August was the beginning of an exhibition hosted at the rather brilliant gallery, Haunch of Venison. ‘Daydreaming with…‘ was the brainchild of UNKLE’s James Lavelle. Far-flung, and exciting, the project called on a number of artisans, learned in a plethora of trades, to synthesize still and moving imagery, and static and active sculpture with music.

Mr Lavelle has most certainly summarised the founding concept of this event far more articulately than I could ever:

“Even though music is the medium I’m attached to, it’s only one element of the arts that inspire me and this is true of all artists in that they take inspiration from other creative forms and channel them back into their own endeavours. Film, paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, scents, all the forms you either see here, have all provided that inspiration for me and this has in turn ultimately impacted heavily on the music UNKLE has created.”

Enter; the exhibition
