Journal

Welcome to my journal. A collection of projects (personal and professional), thoughts and observations. To be honest, it’s just an excuse to showcase films, behind the scenes work, to talk and share ideas. Hope you enjoy it.

Dundee

Dundee

I've been on my travels again, a short stop in Dundee. If you haven't guessed already I love an archtectural detail, so following on from the Sunderland posts here's a few things I spotted in Dundee. I try and pick on compositions that are slightly "off" that's not...

Debbie Honeywood

Debbie Honeywood

A while ago I was asked to create some images for actress Debbie Honeywood. These would be used for her IMDb page/card. Debbie’s the lead actress in the new Ken Loach film “Sorry We Missed You”. And if you follow the news from the recent Cannes Film Festival, it’s...

Brew Lab

Brew Lab

And we're off, at least three this month, so here's a set of campaign ads for Brew Lab and a couple of short films. Here's a little bit of info from David Whitfield, Creative Director at Infinite…, "Brew Lab is an independent company, based in the North East of...

Sunderland Streets

Sunderland Streets

I carry a camera (not a phone) nearly all the time and I'm drawn to creating images like the ones below created on Sunderland's streets. Every town and city has images like these, either hidden or right there in front of you. Some might view these and get the...

Vote Hoult

Vote Hoult

We created images and short films for the Vote Hoult North of Tyne Mayor campaign, which was used across pretty much every media channel possible. Here's a couple of examples below. As per normal, the deadline for this one was yesterday, and some of the film...

BTS

BTS

I'm a bit of a Behind The Scenes (BTS) GoPro pest and I think it's a bit of fun, so here's the proof, but I'm not a lover of the ‘selfie’ but I like to take pictures with other people, possibly because I like the idea of a ‘team‘ working on some of the projects I get...

Apollo Pavilion

Apollo Pavilion

It was an anniversary recently for the Apollo Pavilion in Peterlee. Love it or hate it, it’s still there and that’s a good enough reason to make an image of it! Time was tight with this one, weather wasn’t too good and I had lots of other things to do. For the...

Back in the Kitchen

Back in the Kitchen

Back in the kitchen, with all the foodie/drinkie images I've been creating lately. So here's a portrait from a happy job (they're all happy jobs!) from a short while ago. I've changed the way the final render was - made it a bit more edgy, but hey it's the joys of...

SOTM (January 19)

SOTM (January 19)

Here’s an alternative for Shot of the Month January 2019, with a bit of Behind The Scenes (BTS) in case you don't visit the Facebook page. It's a busy start to the year so lets hope it continues and for the gear heads SOTM was created with Nikon D800e PCE lenses...

Think Ahead

Think Ahead

It's the second post of the new year and what a title: Think Ahead. You think I'd be making these up – but you know I wouldn't do that! This is a short film to promote the Think Ahead programme that is “a new route into social work, for graduates and career-changers...

SOTM Review 2018

SOTM Review 2018

And as a creature of habit, it’s the annual SOTM Review 2018 – all 13 of them! It's a good job I'm not sponsored by anyone, all these were created with Fuji, Sony, Nikons – all of various flavours! So here we go with 2019 and hopefully another year of adventures. I...

Savour Magazine

Savour Magazine

Here’s a couple of projects for Savour Magazine, one for the Brew Stories Lads at Allendale Brewery and another for an article about Grape vrs Grain. If you visit the Brew Stories page you can see a short film that accompanies the grain part of the magazine piece....
