BTS with Young Guns making I Want Out

My friends in Young Guns recently released their music video for I Want Out and I joined them on the day to document the making of it.

Here is the video I made.

JD Wrap with CuT

Last week I had another shoot with the guys from CuT, for an up-coming Jack Daniel’s campaign that I’ve been working on, so we decided to take a wrap photo before packing up. A great bunch of guys definitely worth checking out.

John Taylor of Young Guns

I’ve been spending a bunch of time with the guys from Young Guns, while they’ve been working on their new album, and it’s been great as always.

I shot this photo with John a few weeks back while taking a break during the video shoot for their latest music video.

I really like it.

Sam Smith cover of Stay With Me by Tyron Layley

I filmed another one-take track with my friend Tyron a few weeks back while out riding bikes in the city. This time it was of the song “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith and I really like it.

Vagabond Flag EPK

I’ve been working on a really great project, for Vagabond Flag, over the last few months which will be releasing shortly. It’s something I’m really proud of as I have had quite a lot of creative input regarding the visual representation of the project. I created, with Ryan Prout, a series of EPK’s for the project and this one is my favourite. Definitely watch it if you have a second.

Bullet For My Valentine 2014 Calendar

Last year I photographed some new images with the guys from Bullet For My Valentine to be used for their 2014 Calendar. It was really nice working with the guys again and a privilege to see them playing live again … they sounded massive as always. We photographed during a day together at The Roundhouse before they played that evening. I love a lot of the images we took but cannot show them off yet but thought I’d share these few tearsheets from the actual calendar which is obviously out at the moment.

The 1975 cover of Sex by Tyron Layley

My friend, Tyron Layley, recorded a cover of Sex by The 1975 and I really like it a lot so I decided to film a video for it. The track is beautiful and I wanted to keep it simple so I filmed it all as a one-take session in my studio with a single back light. To create some atmosphere I decided to shoot the track at double speed on the Sony FS700 so that I could slow it down in post and give it that “airy” feel.

I’m really happy with how it came out and think it’s a great tribute to an amazing band by one of my favourite artists. Give it a listen and a share if you have the chance.

Original track written by George Daniel, Matthew Healy, Adam Hann and Ross MacDonald of The 1975.

City Water Flyer

I shot some promo images for the guys in City Water and they’ve used one of the images for an upcoming show of theirs.

Ziey Website Images

A few months back I worked with Ziey on some new promo photographs for him to use for his current press campaign. His real name is Sam Gibbons and he’s a 20 year-old rapper, singer and songwriter from Greenwich.

It was great getting to know him during our time together and we shot some really cool images together.

His website has now been updated and a few of the images have been used as banners around the site so I thought I would post up my favourites on here.

Pure Love Say Goodbye

Tonight the guys from Pure Love began their final tour to say goodbye as they call it a day. I photographed the set down in Kingston and it’s really sad that this is a farewell because I feel like there are still too many people who never got to experience a great show like this. Jim Carroll is one of my favourite performers and I shot this of him doing his thing. Goodbye Pure Love … you’ll be missed.
