Being in an age with instant access to the internet there is an infinite time of videos and movies, vines, documentaries, tutorials and lectures on anything you can imagine... It becomes apparent people have done pretty much everything when it comes to experimenting with camera angles and directing techniques, locations and props, you name it somewhere you can find an example. From Edgar Wright to Paul Greengrass to Chris Evans, Comedy, action and self documentary of lifestyles. I love the cinematic angles used in a lot of car and top gear films, they are filmed very smoothly and have amazing sound quality... obviously the film production has had a bit of money spent for these videos. Chris Evans is great when it comes to describing the feel of the environment and saying the right things at the tight time, with a bit of humour which I think is needed in any video where you are speaking directly to the camera or audience, it keeps you engaged and excited for the next few minutes, with the good angles and overlapping of audio over many different videos adding to the overall experience.
I want to Film someone speaking to the camera talking about their life or their work they make, make it funny and split the whole thing up into a lot of cut scenes and good audio all the way through, with a cohesive concept running thought it too. I'm currently photographing motion enterprise but I cant fit the time in to video whilst focusing on and putting so much time into the book on them which is on film, It will be very difficult to do both in one shoot and achieve quality images and videos ill be happy with, I meet up with them once every month on average and when I see them we have a lot to talk about and have a few hours each time.
I'm also currently working with Louis Parsons who is a painter, currently collaborating with me and another student on some mad work, using fractals and abstraction, various techniques and business ideas we can make a big scene with a new type of abstraction or symphonicism with our findings of art and photography... which creates a clear link between the objective world and subjective, which anyone can make sense of... but this is an idea in progress and has just started out. Louis is up for documentary's of him and us together working on the art and discussing ideas, but we need weeks and weeks of thinking of these ideas and concepts with the knowledge of philosophers and artists and photographers as well as doing uni work and constantly reading and researching things. This is too slow and too big to rush as a uni project, and I will keep this in the background at all times, documenting and making stories anyway because I love capturing this journey.
Wedding and bookings
I am available for Weddings, Festivals, Gigs, Band shoots, individual portrait shoots, family/ group shoots, videography, dance videos.
Being a Photojournalist I have been trained to work fast and accurately and along side the journalistic approach I am also capable of being able to create a project with you. The documentary side to my practice meas that I have the patients and the vision of helping create long terms based projects, such as books, exhibitions, public talks documentaries etc.
It is your ideas I am interested in. For a shoot if you have an idea, a vision, it is my aim to try and get as close as possible to what is in your head and bring it into reality. That way you are happy and we are all actively creating something new and meaningful.
Interested in creating something together? Unsure about something? Or simple want to ask me something photography related then give me a message, always motivated to listen.
