Studio!

I have acquired a small studio space! It’s so exciting to have a space to shoot creative portraits, fashion projects and everything in between.

Me and my partner Karl have spent the last two weeks making it a lovely little space to hang out in!

Me in the studio space the first day I moved in we have done a few tweaks to make it a bit more homely now, It has a lot of character!

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!
