Whenever I go somewhere new I try to seek out the local tattoo shop as it almost always provides interesting people to talk to.
My hometown proved no exception and I’ve slowly become friends with the good people there.
Back in December last year I was lucky enough to visit “VC Motorcycle Club” (The VC stands for Vicious C*&ts apparently:) at their workshop in East London for INFLUX to interview Gemma and Namin for the short film above. It’s finally up on the INFLUX site so I can share it here.
Head over to INFLUX to read the full article.
A couple of weeks ago I was very lucky to get to work with legendary DP Rodney Charters, Kaiman Wong, Dan Chung, Daniel Peters, Mickey Westcott and Maria Sergejeva on a video for Atomos about their new Sumo 19″ monitor/recorder.
It was a really fun 2 days and great to work with such talented lovely people.
I don’t get to take a lot of photos that feel like work these days what with my focus having shifted almost entirely to cinematography, but my wife has been setting up her freelance hairdressing business here in the UK and asked me to build her a website and take pictures of her haircuts for marketing and promotion.
It was actually a lot of fun and I’m pleased with the way they turned out, helped of course by the fact that she is very talented and we had some great models!
Starting the new year as I mean to go on I’ve been working on a few new things with more exciting stuff coming in the next couple of months.
One of those is a collaboration with Christian “Documentally” Payne – Creative Director, Technologist & Documentarian.
(And it should be noted a very interesting, funny and nice man, you should subscribe to his newsletter – the poor dear only has 25K (!!) followers on Twitter so go follow him there too:)
This months piece I DP’d, shot and edited in Belper, Derbyshire for my good friends Postfuel is now up on the Influx site.
This time it’s about Bowler Motorsport, a company that builds custom rally cars based on Land Rover Defenders.
Another fun and interesting job contributing to my slow and steady slide towards becoming a car nut.
The past few weeks has been a blur of (good) busyness what with a trip to IBC in Amsterdam at a days notice with the newsshooter.com team, a D.P. and editing job for my mates Postfuel on drift car nutter Buttsy Butler, a motion graphics job and then this past week to Photokina in Cologne again with Dan and the newsshooter.com team.
