Behind the scenes

Using the new Canon C200

The bulk of my ‘Curiosity Series’ short films were shot on the new (pre production) Canon C200 cinema camera. Here’s a short intro to explain why and what happened on set.

Adventures in Egypt

Destination Luxor. Canon sent us to create advertising stills and a short destination film named Hakawi. We also shot some nicely-polished behind the scenes clips but here’s the RAW uncut version…

With Karina at Wadi Adventure

Created the supporting visuals for an editorial piece on powerhouse Karina Bensemann at Wadi Adventure. Here you have it… action sports photography, in and out of the water.

Finding thrills on Jebel Jais

Honoured to shoot the opening of Ras al Khaimah’s first Via Ferrata. Check it out at jebeljais.ae. Seriously worth a visit. This _iron way_ is guaranteed to test even the bravest amongst us…

A fun day on wheels

A quick summary of having a new set of wheels for a day and crafting some iconic destination content. Something I love to do and the new MG didn’t disappoint.

With David Gandy in Hong Kong

A super short summary of finding magic amongst the chaos of Hong Kong and turning an old vintage poster into a fresh hero image with David Gandy & British Airways.

With Waterhouse & Jagger in Hong Kong

As part of the British Airways 80years Asia celebration, we had fun creating a PR gallery with Immy Waterhouse and Lizzy Jagger. Short, sweet and successful.

Under Armour with Eva Clarke

Nice behind the scenes of what happens at an advertising photo shoot with two hours to capture the perfect shot. It was truly great to work with Eva Clarke at Zayed Sports stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Under Armour with Grant Goes

Grant Goes was one of the hero athletes for the Under Amour Middle East launch campaign. Check out the video to see how we created that one key visual, shot against the skyline at the Fairmont The Palm.

URBEX

Taking a team of regional media on a Canon Urban Exploration trip through Jazira al Hamra. A good day with great people, combining teaching, coaching and picking out the best shot of the day.

Adventure Sports Photography

A week-long adventure with amazing athletes and adventurers cruising through the UAE & Oman. Probably one of my best gigs in 2015. Visit Adventure HQ at Yas Mall to see all the visuals we created.

CNN interview

What a great opportunity to share my Falcons of Arabia stories to a global audience on CNN… worth a watch for the spark at the end.

Falcons of Arabia

The making of Falcons of Arabia. A summary of two years work with 35,000 raw files, 14 days of shooting, hours of research, three edits and 10,000 words. The result? A beautiful book.

LOVE CARS

I spend a lot of time shooting luxury fast cars so when an SUV brand got in touch about shooting their big car out in the vast dunes, it felt like a nice addition to the mix.

DXB AIR EXHIB

What an amazing experience to see the initial hand sketches evolve into a three-month road show through Dubai. The feedback was amazing never mind the honour of HH Sheikh Mohammed paying a visit.

CASE STUDY

Here, a case study for Canon Middle East about my Canon ambassador role and the joy of having our own large format printer in the studio. A nice summary of the work we love to do.

AERIAL

The ultimate shoot for an adrenaline junkie… hanging out a helicopter shooting one of the world’s greatest cities. What resulted is an iconic book called Dubai Aerial Tour.

Nike

A cool behind the scenes view of the Nike Middle East’s Running Club with chat about the brand, what lies ahead and the joy of working with athletes.

GPP

A talk through some of my adventure racing photography assignments, sharing the excitement and what it takes to work with these incredible athletes.

ART ON THE MOVE LAUNCH

A snapshot of the launch of Artonthemove.me. The highlights were exhibited at a cool gallery space with good tunes, good vibes and a buzzing audience.
