Back Story – Blade Runner.

In the first of a regular blog feature I pull an image out of the archive and discuss a little of the who, what, when, where and why behind the image.


This Image of Oscar Pistorius was taken in 2012 just before the London Olympics. The commission was for a leading UK sports magazine and I had an hour or so with the star sprinter up at the Lea Valley athletics track in North London. Everyone always asks what he was like. In reality all leading sportsmen that I have met have a similar personality trait; professional yet single minded.

Oscar was very friendly, charming even. A little short tempered at my insistence on getting the blades in all of the pictures “its about the time I put in, not the blades”. I arrived early and checked out the venue for locations. Using a different number of lighting set ups to speed the shoot along and provide a level of diversity in the final set. The images were used on the cover and inside spreads and have been syndicated globally.

Oscars murder charge is set to be heard in South Africa in March.


Northern Italy

A few images form a recent fact finding mission to Northern Italy, close to Venice, to see some high-end eyewear being produced ahead of shooting their campaign images. We saw the whole production process in full swing from design drawings to finished product.

Kite Eyewear Campaign – Behind The Scenes

Recently we have been working on a campaign for Kite eyewear. Shooting in the studio and on location we have been responsible for delivering all of their visual imagery. All aspects of the shoot have been produced in-house from product shots; look book images as well as campaign advertising images. We offered a full production service working along side the company’s creative director Chris Bell. Below are some behind the scenes images from the location day. The final images will be posted over the next month or so.
