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.

Back to the Darkroom

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.

With thanks to Four Corners Film.

 

Gazelle Twin - Exorcise

In Summer 2014 I shot with Director Chris Turner the music video for Gazelle Twin’s ‘Exorcise’. Shot on SVHS the degraded quality of the image compliments the malevolence of the track.

Watch it here!
