Recent sports commission

This was a commission to shoot imagery of a new format hockey game being introduced in an opening tournament. It was my job to capture the atmosphere of the day, including action, views of the new sized pitches and the social side of the whole event. Hockey is a great game to shoot as there's lots of action and in this new format with shorter games it's condensed in to a furious high-action few minutes!

Filmmaking for Business:
Profile of Steve Elkins

This is a short sports documentary film featuring Steve Elkins who designs, builds and flies hang gliders. Steve owns Avian Hang Gliders and is based in the Peak District in Derbyshire, UK where he sells his gliders to a worldwide market.

Commercial commission

This was a commission to shoot brand new commercial vehicles for a large haulage company who wanted the images for their marketing department. Part of the day was spent at Felixstowe docks with the biggest ship in the world forming part of the background of the image.

Sports Filmmaking:
Portrait of a Paddler.

Favourite images from a recent game

I was commissioned by UEFA to shoot two U17 internationals. These shots including the two players heading the ball were taken from the Norway v Romania match. Had to travel all the way to Nuneaton to shoot this game.

A short film about Gibraltar Point

I've made a short film about one of my favourite places, Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve on the Lincolshire coast, just north of The Wash. I filmed this at the beginning of December and was lucky enough to catch some nice light but could have flown a kite in the winds. It's not beautiful or dramatic but there's a charm to this simple landscape that I love. Click on the picture to see the film.

A Walk Up Scafell Pike

I've written about my experience of walking up England's highest peak, Scafell Pike. Taking the route up from Wasdale Head.

Some mountain bike POV footage

This is some footage I have recently created giving a POV (point of view) angle riding along a forest path on a mountain bike. By mounting the camera on the cross-bar of the bike you put the viewer almost on the bike. It looks very dynamic as the biker rides past the blurring trees giving a real sense of motion.
