We shot this lovely campaign for Specsavers in sunny Brighton and thankfully the weather was on our side and the lights stayed mostly in their bags. Proper summer holiday feel and no animals were hurt in the process of making these ads.
Cheers to Sue Odell, Lisa Dredge, VUE, Amanda and all at Locate Productions, The Forge, as well as Mike, Aaron and Lisa from Specsavers.
VIP MOBILE KIDS SHOOT
More from the VIP shoot, here are some of the Kids shots. Got to say the language barrier was a little tricky given my almost total lack of Serbian (I think I’m one or two words short of not knowing any Serbian, terrible!) but through gestures and sheer willpower we got there.
VIP SUMMER SHOOT RECCE
I was over in Serbia again a couple of weeks ago to recce 42 locations in 3 days, including travelling right up to the Romanian border and finding remote islands on the Danube, should be a great shoot.
VIP 6 SHEETS
Spotted in Belgrade, excuse the terrible phone shots!
This year I have started a few personal projects. After making my feature film I really needed to dedicate some time to personal photography rather than the humongous task of making a film (trailer here), so it’s been fun, and hard in equal measures!
These three are from one of the projects on Tribute Acts, an interesting world to say the least! More to come soon.
I know I grew up in a small West Yorkshire village but I am a New Yorker at heart. I think it was watching all those Woody Allen films in my teens that started it, and then Hip Hop was born there and not in Wakefield so that sealed it
MY NIECE is 8! YIKES
How did that happen? She had a spy party and a large chocolate cake…..wish I was 8 again.
Here’s a few images from a three day shoot for EON. It wasn’t all about the kids but I like these three.
Thanks to Locate Productions, Sue Odell, Kate Vaughan and VUE as well as Carole and Duncan from the agency.
VIP MOBILE WINTER SHOOT – BELGRADE
It was a pleasure as always to be back in Belgrade shooting with Leo Burnett Belgrade and Bas Celik production house. We had 6 long days with amazing locations and great street casting .
It was also nice to shoot the older generation without them having to wear beige action slacks and check shirts and be all bland. More of that I say.
LES MILLS GLOBAL
We did a great shoot for Les Mills earlier this year, casting over 30 dancers and making a fantastic daylight studio look like a gym.
Thanks as ever to VUE, Sue Odell, Locate Productions, Katie Cordell, Michelle Rowbotham as well as our lovely agency and client!
I feel like I’ve been ignoring my blog of late, seems like I’ve taken to Instagram ( here ) for those behind the scenes moments and random stuff and then it’s been a busy old start to the year so no time to get things sorted!
However I am MOST pleased to be back in Belgrade shooting more with Leo Burnett Belgrade and Bascelik production house. We worked together two years ago and it was one of my favourite shoots, lovely people, lovely city, lovely brief – basically a big bag of loveliness.
So here is the fantastic art director Milos on our recce from a few weeks ago, in his old art studio. Tomorrow we start the first shoot day of six and then it’s back for more in May, браво I say!
Found a few more images I like from the England Rugby shoot I did a few months ago. Genuine players, genuine moments but for very specific purposes. I nearly got flattened a couple of times but all in the pursuit of the image I say!
Absolute messy chaos from a shoot last month. Lots of Cornettos and Twisters eaten all round!
Happy New Year!
I know a lot of people start the new year by throwing themselves into some crazy fitness regime but I’m full of cold so will have to just post some new fitness images whilst staying very still in the office and trying not to breathe on anyone.
Hoping to be match fit for Thursday and Friday when the first shoots of 2016 start but until then I’ll just be here sounding a bit like a Yorkshire Darth Vadar.
We did three great shoot days for Electrolux earlier this year and are hoping to get some of the images in-situ very soon. In the meantime here’s this one, which I really like, a nice tender (and quiet) moment!
Blistex ad campaign
Great to see the first of the new Blistex ads out and about.
Many thanks to the lovely clients, Scott, Henry and Katie from the agency. Sue Odell, Rebecca Pearson, Aleks and Cathy at Vue, Kate Vaughan, Hayley, Sam and Will, phew!
Lots of new shots to come from this shoot. Managed to pull off a late summers evening feel despite the bitter cold, well done all!
We had all possible weather options up in the Lake District for our latest Lowe Alpine shoot. Here featuring rain, late afternoon sunshine and that lovely half way up a mountain blustery gale. Love it!
