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!

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.
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.
