Tractors and Robot Arms

I worked on a little Commercial last week doing behind the scenes photography on a Farm in Rugby it was an interesting shoot with tractors and a robot arm for the camera, which was called the Milo! It was very fun to photograph, and watch manoeuvre around the actors to capture the scene.

Here’s a few photos from the shoot, I met some lovely people and leaned how to sneakily get my shots without being hit by a gigantic mechanical arm!

HAPPPY NEW YEAR!

Well Its the end of 2018 and its been an amazing year, I’ve managed to lock down a beautiful studio to capture some wonderful portraits and headshots in, and have met so many wonderful people in the process!

I’ve had plenty of adventures with traveling for work and working with some extremely talented people in the film industry working on brilliant short films, music videos, and commercials. Some of which have had Vimeo staff picks and one has won a few Shark awards. I’ve had some of my work exhibited at Nottinghams first photography festival.

Most of all I’ve had a lot of fun doing the job I love, which il be forever grateful for, I look forward to the future in 2019 for even more photoshoots and adventures!

Here’s a selection of some of my favourite photos that I captured in 2018!

I worked on another music video in Ireland for musician Daithi and Director Lochlainn Mckenna, which is on the low down till the video is released, so I’m unable to share photos for this at the moment. But I can share the music video I worked on in the summer for Daithi, which is here: In my Darkest Moments which has won 3 Shark awards since its release!

I also just came off doing Unit stills on a Short Sci-fi at the weekend, the photos for this are in the editing process at the moment.

And last but not least, I worked on a great little short in Manchester called Lippy, which is a short horror for FOX’s Hulu, Huluween film festival. It was great to work with Director Lucy Campbell DOP Phill Wood, and Actress Kierston Wareing. Stills can be seen below, and on the unit stills page.
