A Brilliant start to the Year!

Just about wrapped up the new DVD 'Stills in Motion'

It is aimed at users of HD DSLR's to help them get to grips with video side of things

The idea is to share what I heave learned on my journey to integrate moving images into my work

I shot this with Dennis Lennie (director/producer), Katherine Holley(editor) and Peter Payne(second camera)

I'm very excited with the rushes I have seen so far.

We hope to have it done and dusted for launch at 'Focus on Imaging' in March

So watch this space.

And like so many things in life when you are as busy as anything, what do you get?

Yes, more work!

For the next month I will be shooting a big ad job

It is not any old ad job either, they are giving me considerable freedom

Yes, it is very exciting and I will share all I can with you when it comes out

Followers of my blog will know I was not the happiest at the end of last year

2010 has been one serious turn around in fortunes, I hope it has been for you too

F stop beyond Interview

Recently I was interviewed by Ron Dawson of 'F Stop beyond'

A very interesting internet radio channel which carries interviews with photographers from around the world including Joey Laurence, Zack Arias and Gabrielle Geiselman

It was a far ranging interview which gives quite a illuminating insight into me and what makes me tick

Hope you find it interesting

I'm in the depths of shooting my new DVD so I must fly

Exciting times ahead!

Calling Cellist and Violinist

Hi Guys

I'm shooting a new dvd round my studio all week in London, E14

Now I need to shoot some sequences which require a Cellist and Violinist

Is there anybody out here who would like to come along?

I can pay a modest fee and travel expenses and will take no more than 3 hours
