So long 2015!

Ok so back in April I got very excited and said I was going to post loads this year and well...
I didn't :-( now as a sort of explanation its been a very busy year even by my standards, i've traveled across the world this year - Norway, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Singapore, Australia, Aruba, Bon Aire, Curacao, Antigua, Barbados, USA, Netherlands and France!

I've shot over 50 video productions and done over 20 stills shoots. MBP have delivered over 150 video assets and I have delivered over 10,000 still images!

I have traveled over 15,000 miles in the UK and we have created work for 15 new clients.

And i've become a dad!

Below are a few image highlights for the year!


























 

And here is a link to our new oil and gas reel for 2015:

I also wanted to say thank you to everyone that has made this possible over 2015 - the clients (your all amazing please keep working with us!) the crew you guys have really pulled a shift for us this year! The models who have all been incredible, hair, makeup, stylists, drivers, chefs, bookers, cleaners, writers, lawyers, accountants, advisers and of course the MBP family :-) Hope everyone has a great Christmas and New Year and i promise I will do more proper posts in 2016!

fashion and production

So anyone that knows me knows that I split my time between my senior producer role at MBP and shooting fashion - here's my fashion page: click here

This year has been a great year for MBP in fact our best ever year since we started yey, we have diversified out and found some great new clients, incredibly cool new industry sectors and we are soon launching a whole new arm of MBP - more info will follow shortly (gasps welcome now)

Our all new super exciting showreel will be online very soon as well yey!

And with my photography it has been a great year too and its just going to get better and better - 2 new books are in the planning stages and some new equipment will be arriving in the next few weeks and then lots and lots of pics will follow!!

But in the meantime I got to create something really cool recently with a great team. Mairi Mcqueen was part of the mastered hair program and she was set a brief for Johnnie Walker whisky she asked me to shoot this for her and it was great! fo…

The life and death of ideas.

So its been a while... (I feel obliged to start each post like this!)


I thought it would be interesting to talk a bit about why I do what I do because exactly a year ago today I was in the North West of Australia filming chemical tank cleaning operations for an oil and gas service provider! - glamorous I know! Here's a pic to prove it! :


And then 5 years ago today I was shooting a commercial in New York (had to attach classic pic!) :


In-between these 2 incredibly different and yet strangely similar shoots I have had the honor of meeting and working with some of the most incredible people on earth. I've laughed until my sides have hurt, i've cried with friends at the horrors of what we are filming and I have been lucky enough to experience and see some of the most beautiful sites on earth.

I have been involved with over 2500 productions and along the way shot over 800,000 stills which take up ALOT of hard drive space!

I know a little about very very many things if you want …

2017 a year of fun ahead!

So it is nearly the end of January 2017 which is quite exciting!
I always like this period as its a chance to build on what I did right the year before and correct the things that didn't go so right!

So this year - The main plan is the create more films and shoot more stills!
I mean alot more of everything as thats what i love to do!

And spend more time looking - sometimes I can forget that its as important to look at life as it is to look through a lens at life.

but in the meantime here's our new showreel which I thought everyone might like:

and here are some stills from the hassleblad - i feel im really getting to grips with this camera now, it took a few weeks to really understand what it can do and wow im blown away!





Lots more images to follow and more info on kit as ive got some pretty fun new lights and adapters which ill tell you all about over the next few weeks and months!

In the meantime happy 2017 and hope the next 11 month…
