Ryan, Rich and myself perpetually talk about getting away and doing a trip together. We finally got our shit together and dragged our asses up Pen Y Fan and Snowdon this week. What we didn’t expect however was the fog and hailstorms to come with it. Good hike and good friends, shit for photos, still worth it.
The folks over at 500px invited me to review the new Brevite Roamer camera bag. I took it along on a few shoots and hikes over the Christmas period and you can check out my thoughts on this bag over on the 500px blog here. Thanks again for having me be part of this!
Tom & Toni asked me a few months back to cover their wedding. With the theme being dark and autumnal I was totally stoked to be working with my friends on this one. Congrats guys.
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.
