The Kai Face

I’m finally sharing the results of a very interesting art commission.
This is the Kai Face.
It is the biggest thing I’ve ever worked on, in terms of time I spent on it (indescribable), and also size – this is a piece not made for the internet. It’s going to be printed at least 2 metres tall.
At [...]

Why the John Lewis Christmas advert is so much better than the Littlewoods one »

Why the John Lewis Christmas advert is so much better than the Littlewoods one

Yesterday on twitter I felt the urge to tweet my reaction to seeing the latest Littlewoods TV advert. Kids on stage, instead of performing the Nativity play, sing a popstrel ode to capitalism, naming an array of branded gadgets, the audience full of proud smiling parents.

Up high in Dalston »

Up high in Dalston

Less than a week after the London riots we found ourselves hosting our August Shoot Experience in East London. Ironically enough, with the police attention it has garnered, it was one of the safest places to be in the country. Again with 5 new models, the smoothest-operating styling team we’d yet known, and a new [...]

Video 1/3: using Phase One for fashion portraits

Check out my new video below – this takes a close-up look at pictures I shot with Phase One kit (645DF and p40+ back) at recent Shoot Experiences in London. I used a 75-150mm Phase One medium telephoto lens for most of the images seen in the video, and the quality of the lenses you [...]

My promo video

Last year, independent filmmaker and producer Alistair Briggs made a video of my first workshops that took place in a London studio. I was wowed by the cleancut result and posted it to my Vimeo page. We then started working on a promo video that would encapsulate the wider picture of everything I do: fine-art, [...]
