Hello

Now seems the perfect time to revamp my website & blog.

Funk Da Cirque

Funk Da Cirque

A lot has happened over the past 12 months. The 2013 Summer began with a trip to the Netherlands documenting the 'Funk Da Cirque' troupe, kickstarting my relationship with the London's Roundhouse. 

This time last year (August 2013) I was starting out in London interning with Rex Features working on the picture desk. This led to shooting lots of exciting events & meeting celebrities such as Jenny Frost, Warwick Davis & one of my favourite actors, Bill Nighy. I fully mastered the art of editing, captioning & wiring in a shoot in 5 minutes, all whilst sipping a latte in the nearest coffee shop.

Autumn 2013 saw me shooting film stills on a number of amazing short films for the NFTS (the best film school in the world!). I started 2014 shooting yet more film stills this time on a fantastic film based around the Spanish civil war.

Spring saw me busy in waders shooting the devastating Somerset Floods. From Prince Charles' arrival by boat to the flooded 'island' village of Muchelney. To a tractor ride through very deep water to witness James Winslade's 'Great Cow Evacuation' moving 600 cattle through the night away from his flooded farm. After the waters receded I got up in a microlight to shoot post flood aerials. Full photo series here.

Below is a favourite image from the year so far, part of my new circus photo project. I've been learning an incredible amount assisting fashion photographers. Especially retouching skills - Thanks.

It's amazing to see a project go from concept to publication. I worked with Matilda Temperley to develop the concept & picture edit her flood book, a stunning record of the somerset floods. You can buy a copy here: http://burrowhillbooks.bigcartel.com/product/under-the-surface-somerset-floods

I've shot some truly amazing weddings this summer. I find I'm almost exclusively using my sigma 35mm 1.4 Art Lens. This thing is amazing.

More film stills.
