Teaser campaign for Design Junction 2013 & signage photographs.
Some months ago BCMH asked me to take pictures for a teaser ad for the Design Junction show which happened last week. Last week I went to the show to document the signage BCMH had worked on. There is more info on the work at their site here, BCMH
I was the DOP on this for Art & Graft. We recreated the images from the print campaign into a live action version for this short ad to promote the Barbican’s Classical music Season
Shooting in the old sorting office New Oxford St I took these empty space while waiting for props to materialise.
This week saw the D&AD awards at the Roundhouse in Camden, London. My friends at BCMH were commission to design and art direct the event identity and I went in at the 11th hour to capture their graphics as they were installed. See here for the full story.
A while back my friend Fiona Hermansson asked me to come and photograph some of the customers for a shop she was working with. The shop on the Portobello Road is an Aladdin’s cave with clothes from some of the most exciting figures in the fashion world. Their customers and friends are encouraged to drop in and hang out and the brief for the shoot? Studio 54 meets back stage at the Theater. My take on it was to create 5 characters to represent the shop Check out their website for more info about the shop and their ideology.

John Walker & Sons - Odyssey from ART & GRAFT on Vimeo.
A few months ago Art & Graft approached me to do the photography for a new whisky John Walker and Son were launching called Odyssey. Love Creative commissioned Art & Graft after seeing the work Mike (A&G’s Creative Director) and I had done together on “24 Hours, Pavey Ark” and “Island/Universe”
This time we were to off to Scotland for 5 days to capture the majesty of the highlands and lowlands using a motion control rig that enabled some of the dynamic backgrounds you see in the final film. We provided lunch for hundreds of midges while we braved the Scottish weather to collect the footage which would be processed as individual HDR images and graded back at the studios in London. Using a Nikon D800 each frame is a massive 36.3 Mega Pixels. Once we had photographed everything we needed for the film I retreated to patch up my bites while Art & Graft set about creating the Magic. I think they describe that best over on their Blog, Here.
I am really pleased with the final film and the graphics make for a engaging and stunning introduction to the new whisky.
New work /
I have been very busy working on lots of very interesting projects for the last three months some which I have published below and some which will come out over the next month. The stills here come from a one of those projects with a wonderful man named Jordan McKenzie and our mutual friends at Brickwall films. I can’t say much more about it at the moment but there will be a film within the next month.

It is always a pleasure to work with talented people and BCMH are one of the most succinct and stylish studios out there. The above images are on the homepage for the BCMH website the former two being on a mobile and the latter on a desktop.
