Uncropped Nokia shots

It just occurred to me that I don’t think I ever shared the uncropped shots I did for Nokia’s 1020 campaign last year (before they were sliced to fit the 16:6 digital OOH screen format that is). So here they are!

If you read my blog you’ll remember that I shot these images for the Nokia 1020 iSpy campaign that ran on digital screens across the UK and on Nokia’s twitter account - so the shots needed to be super detailed to make the iSpy game playable. Also, what was most challenging was that all the images needed to be shot on the 1020 handset and be super high resolution so we could zoom in over 4x in the campaign. We also couldn’t use a mounting system as the phone needed to be triggered manually on the touch screen - this second part became pretty terrifying when hanging out the side of a helicopter shooting 2 handed over mid-winter London;)

Shot in RAW and processed at full res (exported to Tiff) they’re around 100mb each which is just amazing for a camera phone! These are compressed to about 1mb on the blog…

Anyway, I think the results are pretty epic for a phone camera, don’t you?

Here’s a video of the campaign showing how the images were used across Ocean Outdoor’s screen network:



Yoga 3

I’ve been shooting with the team from HMX a fair bit recently, predominantly lifestyle images for Lenovo’s newest range of multi mode laptops – the Yoga 3. For this latest campaign we shot against 4 wonderfully minimalistic sets built in the One Red Eye Studio in Peckham. As the set was lit exclusively for the video side of things I needed to use the same lighting setup which was great as it really ties the video and stills together nicely I think. Here’s a selection of some of my favourite shots from the day:

And here’s the HMX produced video:

Total Women’s Cycling awards…

So, the lovely team at VeloVixen (and one of my fabulous clients) are competing for top spot for ‘Best female specific retailer of the year’ in this year’s Total Women’s Cycling Awards. A win for them would be more than well deserved! So if you have a spare moment have a look through their (brand new) website and get voting here. There’s £2500 worth of cycling kit up for grabs too!


New Year, New work..

Happy New Year!

A week into 2015 and this year is already off to a cracking start. I’ve a lot planned for this year and will hopefully also get a bit more time to blog and share more BTS stuff than I did in 2014…

I’ve been shooting a lot of commercial lifestyle stills over the past few months, primarily with the awesome team at HMX so I thought I’d quickly share some of that work.

It’s great to see my work used both as campaign imagery as well as still screen content in the product video spots. Here’s the HMX produced spot:
