Wayne Hemingway

Back in June I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Red or Dead co-founder Wayne Hemingway. As usual in any situation involving a well known personality time is very limited, so it always pays to have a game plan. I walked around the building looking for a good spot and found a canteen which had floor to ceiling windows all down one side, I took my meter readings and set the camera all before hand so I was ready. I knew I wanted the background to bleed out to white behind him, so I metered accordingly. In total I shot 5 frames of which this was the best.  
All images were shot using a Bronica ETRSI with a 75mm lens.

The Shining

To promote a season of Kubrick films being shown on More 4 in 2008 Channel 4 created a promo showing a Kubrick's eye view tracking shot through the set of The Shining. 

The set was meticulously crafted, props were replicated and look-a-likes were found to play Kubrick's cast and crew. The best being Kubrick's script lady at the end of the clip. 

I am a huge fan of The Shining and this is a great homage to a classic film.
