Always great to get involved in a project that's a part of history. In the build up to the Queens Jubilee pageant I was involved in a number of shoots for different organisations - from an interview for German Pro-Sieben TV to the lighting of the torch at Tilbury Fort to shooting the pageant itself on the Mall. here are some shots from those events.
The past weekend was spent from sunrise to sunset aerial filming the passenger bridge at Tilbury Cruise Terminal with the drone for an arts film for artist Everton Wright. The film is going to be feature in a major arts film festival later this year so excited to see how it all comes together.

It's kind of a headache having to do it again but with my knowledge gained over the past 7 years, filming as far afield as Rwanda to Iceland it's surprising how much you forget from the original course.

I'm super stoked to announce that the production I shot over the summer is airing on Saturday 23rd October on Channel 4 TV here in the UK at 7PM. This was a whirlwind of a production - from pre-production thru post in around 11 weeks - from finding the story and filming the interviewees to archive to edit and graphics - this was a big undertaking and at times pretty overwhelming in hitting the deadlines - a lot different to […]
