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:

Cameraman: Me

Producer: Cassidy Uggla

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.

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…

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!!
