Sun Still Shines on You

video
Earlier this year I had the opportunity to work with Patrick Balfe of Beau Brummel Music, 
when he asked me to shoot the video for his song Sun Still Shines on You.

Shot on a Canon 7d using a mixture of Canon and Nikon lenses. 



Thanks to Pete for the loan of the camera and to Chris for assisting on this.



Any constructive input is appreciated.

George Mallory

Shot on my old Bronica ETRS, the one on the left was on Kodak E100VS Slide and the black and white on Ilford XP2. These images formed part of an exhibition and were based around the story of George Mallory and Andrew Irvine who disappeared whilst attempting to summit Mount Everest. I managed to pick up the goggles from an old army navy store for £5 and the jacket from a charity shop. We walked for miles to find a spot suitably in the middle of nowhere along the sea front and it was even colder than it looks in the pictures!

Everything looks better in slow motion

I just came across this link on Chase Jarvis's blog. 
The New York Times have commissioned a series of slow motion video portraits of some of the worlds top tennis players.
Shot on the Phantom Flex camera at 1250 frames per second in full 1080 High Def.
They are beautifully lit and prove my theory that everything looks better in slow motion.
See the video here



















Yasmin


























































A couple of months back I decided to get back in to taking portraits just for fun. Everything has been getting so serious lately that I began to lose site of why I started doing photography in the first place. 
So I called up a few friends and have been making regular shoots with them just for the hell of it.
The above shots of Yasmin were all taken on the same day, all except the last one are a mix of ring flash and daylight.

Welcome to the darkslide

Hello and welcome to my photographic blog.
As this is my first post I thought i'd sweeten the deal by uploading a picture.
I will be posting a mixture of old and new work and also test polaroids and contact sheets, 
so keep em peeled!
