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 would like to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Portraits for Wool and Water!

I was recently contacted by Wool and Water which is a custom Knitwear label from Amsterdam, they provide knitted bow ties and braces and the sorts for humans and animals alike, their products are beautiful and bespoke, you can see their website here www.woolandwater.nl

I was contacted to visit a play writer in London and photograph him in his home wearing his new bespoke, handmade woollen braces! This was a fun task and it was great to meet Rob Evans and capture portraits of him sporting his new outfit, and learning how he gains his creative workflow in his home!

Commercials, Headshots and Short films!

It's been a busy couple of weeks, I've worked on a few Commercials, headshot shoots and also photographed the behind the scenes on a short film for the 48-hour SCi-fi challenge.

The 48 hour Sci-fi film challenge is an exciting one, as you only have 48 hours to make the film from the script to final edit, so not much sleep is had, but it's a lot of fun all working together to get it made in time. My job was to document the weekend and the spirit of making the film with behind the scene shots!

The final film from this shoot can be seen following the link: https://vimeo.com/263838480

Below is a few Unit stills from the set to!
