This was one of the photos I took for Stephanie Garrard, taken on my Mamiya medium format camera. I'm very happy with the result although we are hoping to go out and re-shoot.
On the 8th - 17th December I exhibited my work in Camden for the opening exhibition of Camden Image-Gallery. It was a very successful exhibition - I had lots of good feedback about my work. This is the work I exhibited:
Elena Chimonas, curator of the exhibition converted the building in a 10 month project and has turned it into a beautiful exhibition space. I'm very lucky to have had the opportunity to hang my work there and I hope to do so in the future.
Summer 2013 - Work Experience at Space-2 (Location Scouting Company) and a day Assisting at Pinewood Studios.
This summer has been one of the busiest, influential and exciting experiences so far. Throughout the summer I have been working at a location scouting company - Space-2. This involved a vast amount of research, searching for interesting and unique locations for advertisement, television, film and music videos. It involved travelling, photographing locations and placing the information into the archive system. We used this archive to respond to client briefs.
While at Space-2, I was introduced to the marketing director, Jeremy Pelzer. This lead to an extraordinary day assisting on a film set at Pinewood studios where Jeremy was the film stills photographer.
It was the most amazing experience of my life and I hope I get the opportunity to work with Jeremy and at Space-2 in the Summer of 2014. I learnt a lot from my experience at Pinewood Studios, from how the director communicates his ideas, to the relationship between the cast and the crew. Due to time constraints, three different scenes were being filmed at once. Jeremy would not only photograph the set but also the actors separately for the marketing of the film.
It was an incredible experience and I hope to have similar opportunities in the future.
