A nice recap of my first Saudi Arabia Dakar Rally experience. What does it take to capture this iconic rally in images. I used to live in Saudi Arabia back in the mid 80's (see me as a young boy...) and since 2000 been traveling back here for various gigs. This bts talks about change, rally and memories.
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.
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…
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A talk through some of my adventure racing photography assignments, sharing the excitement and what it takes to work with these incredible athletes.
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.
