I’ve enjoyed and naturally moved towards full multimedia in 2014. 4K cameras and professional sound give clarity, bite and realism to subjects.
I’m also very proud to welcome Brian and Chloe to the team here. Together we’ve ramped-up production quality on-set and sped-up turn around back in the editing studio. Testing both the new camera and editing workflow has been a crucial part of the last 2 months.
The second example video is a montage of over 78,000 5D Mk3 RAW files, processed groomed and edited to create a stunning day to night sequence in 4K. The camera was fitted with a 17mm TS Lens and mounted in a custom solar powered marine housing.
This December marks 3 years since I began recording the progress of the Victoria Station Upgrade in Central London.
It’s been incredible seeing the engineering challenges and logistics behind such a major project. All happening within and underneath one of London’s busiest transport hubs. A selection of the images are soon to be featured on Victoria Line Tube platforms to show the works taking place behind the hoardings.
We also got a tweet out of Number 10 Downing Street this morning which can’t be a bad marker of success..
The Principality of Sealand is an unrecognised self-declared state (or micronation) located on a British-built platform in the North Sea. Its mass consists of HM Fort Roughs, a former Second World War Maunsell Sea Fort, off the coast ofSuffolk, England, United Kingdom.
While it has been described as the world’s smallest country, or the world’s smallest nation, Sealand is not recognised by any established sovereign state, although Sealand’s government claims it has been de facto recognised by the United Kingdom and Germany.
In February 2013 I was privileged enough to visit Sealand with Michael Bates and his son on assignment for the Sunday Times Magazine. A fascinating day of Photography and Video…
Last month I had the amazing opportunity to spend 6 days in Lagos, Nigeria, on assignment. The main body of work is embargoed and won’t be released for a few months. In the mean-time here’s some portraits I took of some Nigerian Truckers when I had 30 minutes down-time. There is such an amazing diversity of tribes and backgrounds within Nigeria represented by this single queue of driver’s waiting patiently to receive their cargo.
LAGOS, NIGERIA – NOVEMBER 5TH, 2012: Truck drivers from across the 32 Nigerian states wait patiently to fill their trailers with fuel at a tank farm in the port of Lagos. Despite being the world’s fifth largest producer of crude oil Nigeria lacks refineries and as such has volatile availability and prices of oil products. (Photo by Toby Smith/Reportage by Getty Images)
