I was recently commissioned by the V&A to shoot their Summer 2016 campaign. The campaign runs live throughout July to September in print, digital and billboard mediums like the image bellow shot at Heathrow Airport.
In early January 2015 I shot the latest Castrol Magnatec TV advert directed by MLF. This huge feat of photographic innovation involved motion control, stop motion photography and LED lighting technology. Watch the making of video here to see the tremendous efforts of all involved.
After a two year absence from the darkroom it was a pleasure to be printing again. After a full day of printing it re-affirmed my faith in shooting on colour film. The physicality of a negative, the smell of chemicals and anticipation of the developed print is an unparalleled experience. Glad to be back!
See bellow a test print of ‘Bathers’, a photograph shot at the Dead Sea, part of a current personal project.
