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.

Bed Head

A month or so ago I hit up Parklife Festival in Manchester to shoot for Tigi Bed Head. I can say, categorically, that the job was thoroughly enjoyable, but the festival itself…well…it wasn’t my cup-of-tea.

I drove up from London with a producer/editor and spent two days shooting behind the scenes, interviews, product shots etc.

And this is what we put together.

BTS

Working behind the scenes is great…except…it’s mental, completely mad and relentless!

That all said, I love it, absolutely.

I can only post a sneak-peek at the moment…

…but welcome to BTS on a gigantic Rimmel shoot with a very lovely Georgia May Jagger.

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

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…

British Fashion Awards

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!

Aussie

Late last year I had the great pleasure of helping to shoot three ‘looks’ for haircare brand, Aussie.

It was a job shot with fantastical video communications agency, Bespoke Banter.

Although I ve shot a (relatively) fair amount of video, I’d never really done anything like this before. Coming from an exclusively stills orientated background, video production is exciting, wonderful and hugely rewarding – and there also seems to be more of it to take advantage of – paid work anyway!!
