It’s that time of year again where I get to look back and reflect on what was good, what was bad and what was really, really ugly. Truth be told, 2013 has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride with many ups and downs. The first part of the year was quite difficult as I’d been struggling with my health, and although it was something I didn’t broadcast I was conscious that my business wasn’t moving as fast I wanted. I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid and unfortunately two doctors had missed it, so for three years my symptoms had been growing to the point where I just couldn’t function. I never realised that left untreated it could cause so many problems. I’d got to the point where I just thought I was suffering from stress and also generally being a bit mardy! When I was finally diagnosed it was like a huge weight had been lifted – mainly because I realised I wasn’t being mardy AND it was treatable. High fives all round! By the middle of the year when my medication had kicked in I was finally starting to feel like myself again. This was also the point where I started to push my business in a whole new direction.Filed under: Boudoir, Commercial, Engagement, Film & TV, Headshots, Interior Photography, Photography, Pre-Wedding, Property Photography, Theatre, Video, Weddings | Comments Off
On a weekend in September, in a pub in Manchester a group of people got together to shoot a short film.
Here are some stills and behind the scenes shots from the weekend……Filed under: Film & TV, Photography | Comments Off
Back in July I shot some production stills for a short film called ‘The Big Day’, which was being entered into the Virgin Media Shorts. The rule is that all entries have to be no longer than 2 minutes 20 seconds – including titles and credits. Yikes – no pressure then! Out of over 860 entries, ‘The Big Day’ written by PurpleCoat Productions, has now made it to the final 13!!
Between now and October 21st, all of the final films are being shown at hundreds of independent cinemas nationwide, which means that 1) I’m gonna get my name on the big screen (high fives all round), and 2) we really, really, really, need you guys to vote for us! To get this far out of so many entrants is amazing.
The votes are cast through the power of social media, on Facebook and Twitter. To vote on the Virgin Media Facebook page, please hit the vote button next to ‘The Big Day’.
To vote on Twitter, your tweet must include the films name, followed by #VMShortsVote = (The Big Day #VMShortsVote)
I know that Karl and the gang at PurpleCoat would really appreciate your help – so please help us to spread the word, tell all of your family and friends and ask them to vote, it would be really appreciated!Filed under: Film & TV | Comments Off
……perhaps I’m a little bit behind with some of my blog posts – approx. a year maybe
In March 2012 I got the chance to shoot production stills with an amazing group of people, on a project that had been in the works for quite some time. You can find further information about the project on the Charlie Film website.
If you have an upcoming project that you would like to discuss booking me as your stills photographer for, please get in touch.Filed under: Film & TV | Comments Off
Last week saw another sell out show from PurpleCoat Productions. This time, it was Titus Andronicus at Unity Theatre in Liverpool. The day before the show opened I headed over to take some photos of the final rehearsal.
You can see photos of their previous show here ——–> The Rise and Fall of Little Voice.
If you require a stills photographer for any of your projects, large or small, please get in touch. You can see examples of my stills photography for film / TV on my dedicated stills website. You can also view my profile on Film and TV Pro.
