Escape Plan

This was a commission to create a library of photographs to accompany a TV ad for Celtic Manors #Escapeplan. Just to confirm the Still photographs in this blog post are mine. The Video was made by Wordley Productions

48 Hours in Wales

A few years ago I had a fantastic commission. To photograph real people on holiday in Wales for a stopmotion piece to look like user generated content (see end of post). I have spent years working in Wales and know it well so this was an amazing few days. 

 

Principality Building Society

Back in 2015 I was commissioned by Mr B and Friends to capture an archive of authentic lifestyle images for use on a variety of media. They ended up being on: 48 and 6 Sheet Billboards, in store literature and their website amoungst other places. This was a big shoot as it was over 3 days with many Location Houses and a big team of Art Directors, Designers, Producers, Model Families, real people from the Principality HQ, MUA and Stylists. 3 Very long and productive days but I am thrilled with the results. We have just completed another 3 days last month to update their imagery. I cant wait to see it in use and blog the new images after release. 

 

Here is a more extensive edit of the images.

An Hour With... Little and Long Coffee

AN HOUR WITH

Steller Story Books

I have been spending my spare time glued to my phone making small story books from commissions and personal projects with the awesome app Steller. Some of which have been featured by on the homepage and have had a bit of attention. My most recent is 48 hours in Wales. A commission from a few years ago https://steller.co/s/5M2GyjcJ4ue.

Adrian Sellick. The last remaining mud horse fisherman in Britain “I think I am probably the last fisherman in the world to still be using the mud-horse but it’s like a hobby to me. I don’t believe you could do it unless it was in your blood, I am the fifth generation of my family to use the mud-horse and I could never give it up.” The mud-horse itself is a hand-built wooden sledge which enables fishermen to navigate his way over the treacherous mudflats of Bridgwater Bay, where the technique was used by many families only a couple of generations ago.

I took this image 2 years ago when the tide was very high mixed with large waves. I had forgotten about it until I found an old framed print the other day. My friends saw it and loved it telling me about ‘the face’. I never noticed it before and honestly Havnt retouched the waves on this image at all. Just darkened the sky and a fair bit of contrast. Now I can see the face it looks like Mother Nature jumping from the sea. I was hoping I would spot some running horses like the Guinness ad!! #storm #sea #ocean #wave #wales #porthcawl #magicmoments #seascape #spray #ocean #igerswales #waves #surf #boom #runoutofhashtags #landscape #guiness (at Porthcawl)
