WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
In 2008 I purchased my first DSLR, a Nikon D40, I had little knowledge on how to use a camera or how to work with lighting. This was my first ever set up produced during that time, using various precariously perched desk lamps with translucent coloured acrylic sheets leant against them. I blagged and borrowed props and set them against varnished cladding. It was an attempt to mimic the work process of set designers and cinematographers I admired.
Though this photo was un-used it became a building block for the American Reflux project, which has lay dormant for the past year due to work commitments. Next week I begin the first in a series of on location shoots for a sequel ‘of sorts’.

THE BONEYARD MK II

The Trans-am key fob and Dremel tool are stills taken from my current project. It’s coming along slow and steady as I can only shoot and edit it on my days off. The bike was shot today at work as part of the same project but ended up surplus to requirements.

TEAR SHEET
Part of a documentary series I did on a shop owner with a history steeped in racing BMX and motorbikes. He used to compete during the earliest days of BMX riding on a chrome Curtis frame.

FIREBIRD

Recently dusted off my camera to begin shooting some footage for a short edit documenting the process of building a 1:24 scale ‘79 Firebird. These are a couple of stills filmed so far.

A LONG TIME COMING
It’s been eight months since my last post and as you can see updating hasn’t been my forte. During this time I’ve been doing the “Day Job” and have yet to use one creative iota. I have now a couple of projects in the pipeline and I’m temporarily running things out of a tiny loft room whilst currently seeking a new studio space.

COLLABORATIVE EXHIBITION

This September saw the start of an exhibition featuring work from myself and illustration by my good friend Kazimierz Szostak.

We had a really nice turn out for our exhibition. Thank You to all that attended and a special Thanks to Adam Fisher for the impromptu window illustration during the private view as well as my London based friends who made the epic journey up here, you guys have been awesome.

THE END IS NIGH HERE

SFX MAKE UP

My viewfinder arrived on Friday so I used it for the first time on an outdoor shoot, testing faux perspiration and bruising techniques.
