Featuring a lovely tune my my dear friend and ex-band mate from back in the day:-
On a windy day last week I went to my local park to do some test shooting with my new A7SII in 120fps slow motion mode.
I shot handheld with Picture Profile off and the Neutral setting with auto white balance. I used a Pentax 35-70mm K-mount lens on a Fotoga adapter.
The footage was conformed to 24p in Premiere, black and white levels adjusted, some saturation and a touch of sharpening added.
Corporate Shoot – Fragrance Laboratory
So my second of 4 planned Green Man tattoos is finally done!
Above is a timelapse of all of the sessions that it took to finish it.
This weekend I traveled to Seki in Gifu prefecture to shoot Shinzan Roshi a legendary Zen monk and calligraphy master for a client in the UK.
A few weeks ago when I was back in the UK I finally managed to get down to see my dear old friend and amazing tattoo artist Mr Gary Burns in Brighton.
“DIVISIONS” a Uchujin & Sean Bonner collaboration.
Someone asked me the other day WTF all the stuff I was carrying was, so I thought I’d do a quick post to show what I take when I leave the house to a shoot.
I recently did a fashion shoot for a new Tokyo based fashion label called “Strangers”, whose website I also built.
The lovely people over at CFYE.com (Crack For Your Eyes – GREAT name!) have published an interview with me and some of my work.
At the end of last year I worked with the Danish journalist Thomas Davidsen on a piece for the Danish newspaper Jyllands Posten about Kybei sushi in Ginza.
Almost 5 years ago I was the Director of photography on the documentary “Twende Berlin” about public space and gentrification filmed in Berlin and Nairobi (some blog posts from the time HERE ).
Directed by Vincenzo Cavallo and produced by the team from Cultural Video Foundation.
The full documentary is now available to watch online.
Super proud of my work on it as it was my first ever DP assignment. The finished piece is well worth your time, hats off to all involved.
It was an amazing time for me and I miss dearly all the people involved (you know who you are!) massive Upendo love to you all!
