Yeh, nice. 11.03.18

Been a while since i've done one of these. I'm in the process of building my video rig so this time it's all about visuals. 

Haven't been this impressed by a documentary for ages. Been following the situation in Flint, Michigan through some friends from there. The story behind it all is enough to make this show fascinating and to add to it the cinematography is so impressive. Getting the shots they did in the situations they're in. Think Cops but with an actual story and shot like a movie.  

2. Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri. Maybe an obvious one but this film made me think, was strangely heartwarming and is shot beautifully. Acting is next level. A short review but basically just watch it. Two thumbs up!

hope you watch and love all of these as much as I do. Look out for some video from me in the coming weeks/months.

Balios Umbrellas

Shot for Balios Umbrellas look book Autumn 2017. The brief was pretty simple... London. 

Miss Gatehouse

Decided to share a bit more of the work I've been doing on my blog. Here's a few images shot for clothing brand Miss Gatehouse online. 

Observation & Reflection

Shot on a cloudy day in East London in digital and 35mm. 

Sutherland, Scotland

Every year we go to Scotland for an escape from life in a city that doesn't let you have a moments peace. London can be the best but I feel like I need these trips with no phone signal or internet for a week to reconnect and refresh. It's nearly impossible to ignore notifications and emails unless you have no choice. On top of that the fresh air is so revitalising, it's really on my mind how polluted our air is and being in the middle of a forest on top of a hill in the middle of nowhere I can really feel the benefits.  Mountains, forests, rivers, lochs, beaches, oceans and a tonne of rainbows. I'd recommend the Scottish highlands to anyone.

Summer's Not Over Yet

To fight away the dreary mid summer days I decided to bring out a new series of books and prints. All available to buy now from my store!

Some classic A6 pocket notebooks with lined and plain paper and a limited run of 100 page perfect bound A5 notebooks with super thick paper. 

Along with a set of 3 12" x 18" prints to celebrate the brightness of summer. 

Enjoy!

On the longest day of the year which also turned out to be the hottest I met Nicola for a super quick shoot in Stratford. It was perfect weather for some colour.

Slowlights

In what has been one of my favourite projects, I've been working with Slowlights on an ongoing basis since February this year. From promos at 5am on the coldest morning of the year to their biggest live show to date. Getting creative on the design and videography front is a massive bonus for me too.  I would love to get involved with more campaigns like this but it helps that I'm totally into the music too!

It's been a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to continuing the journey.

Ocean projections

Sometimes I just have a million ideas going through my head. Luckily people like Ocean are willing to let me shine all of those ideas directly into their eyes at once. 

Here are the results...

A little bit of red and a little bit of white.

There are studies confirming that high amounts of pink colour can have a calming effect on the nerves and even create physical weakness in people. Although, overexposure to the colour may have the opposite effect...

Some quotes from popular theologians

Always a rad time shooting with Hayley Ku'unani.
