I started a personal project following the Severn Bore surfers in the summer. Its always a fairly hectic couple of hours as you have the chance to overtake the bore a few times if you are quick enough to get back to a car. To be continued next year
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
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.
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.
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.

I am loving the Steller App. It creates lovely small digital books from your phone while on the go. It works very well on tablets and phones. Here is the first of many short picture stories I will be publishing. Click https://steller.co/s/5L44TpCapnv . The images below are screenshots from the book.
