Last month I spent a day with the Our World Is Grey crew on set shooting the latest Neck Deep music video shooting behind the scenes content for everyones upcoming social media and press campaigns. Shot on a mix of 35mm, 120 and digital keeping on brand with the 90s vibes the video was all about.
Ive had a few people ask me how Im such a wizard genius and got this effect. Its pretty simply done by running 35mm through my medium format Pentax 67 which takes 120 film. Adapting 35mm can be a bit tricky as its not designed to go through larger format cameras so I got some 3D printed spool converters off eBay. This basically fills the space between the canister and the winding mechanism and then it can be loaded like standard 120.
However because its canister film it requires re-winding back once you're all done. With a bit of practice and patience you can do this in a darkbag carefully and then develop it as you would any other c41 process film.
Shot on Kodak Colourplus 200.
Viva Las Vegas
Chris and Tamara cast aside the conventional wedding norms and embarked on a trip to remember to celebrate their special day. Chris first approached me after we bonded over the band Every Time I Die a few years ago and when he asked me to shoot his elopement wedding I knew it was going to be something special. Travel, wilderness and the opportunity to create something amazing for them to remember. Sign me the fuck up. With their wanderlust and passion for one another we hit Vegas for 5 days and made it unlike any other.
The 5 days we had together we knew would fly by so the second we landed we hit the strip. Checking out the sights, sorting out marriage licences and working out where to go on the big day. Chris and Tamara were lucky enough to be staying in the Wynn with one holy hell of a view.

Woah, the big day, basically all we have been talking about for the last year and a bit. I made my way up to their hotel nice and early accompanied with a bottle of Champagne ready to start the day and catch the getting ready and reading each other their letters.
Woah, Its been a while since I've done any update here. So much going on left, right and centre which always results in websites being the last thing on my mind.
Anyhow, last week Craig and Adam had me down to photograph their awesome country styled wedding at Waddleston Manor. These guys know how to throw a party for sure. Its been a while since I shot a wedding all on my own but everyone being the funniest and kindest wedding party possible it just made everything an absolute dream.
Congrats guys, heres to the future.
Not one megababe bride, but TWO! Lucy and Vikki had their big day over at the Grange Manor just on the outskirts of Bristol with a bohemian teepee theme. Everything down to personal tote bags for the guests was made by these two with more care than you can imagine. Ive got too many favourites to be able to post the whole album this time. Thanks for having me down on your special day!
A few weeks back me and my friend Ryan Winterbotham shot James and Elise on their big day in north London. A wedding deep in the woods with a festival theme could not suit these guys more perfectly.
Thanks for the rad day guys.
Sorry for the lack of updates, the last few months have been pretty turbulent. Im moving into my new house today and am super stoked to get my own workspace back, this should mean more updates and more things in general but I'm sure I'll find other ways to procrastinate.
Last week my pals from Sentier Supply came up to the west country for a little bit of exploring and to test shoot some of their products. The guys have wanted to check out Cheddar for a while so I took them up and made them stand on edges of cliffs for me.

After reading Retrato by Mark Del Mar (@bleeblu), I've found myself wanting to shoot more portraits and working with new people. His style and work ethic is super inspiring and left me just wanting more.
Ive wanted to shoot in these gardens for a few months now and after Olivia approached me to do a small casual session I thought it was ideal for us to do it here.
