I first met Rob several years ago and already back then he was a kind of a cult figure. Drawing funny characters, creating simple, but beautiful visual treats, using curved lines and lots of imagination. Since then he’s started his own studio and became a successful artist creating a wide range [...]

I recently shot a music video for a British-Norwegian band, Casa Murilo. Not my first venture into the music video world, but definitely my first where I was in total control of the project. I loved the track (called ‘Drive’) and I’ve managed to convince them to ditch their original [...]
I met Tammy a few years ago when she commissioned me to take some pictures for her site. That’s when I discovered the fascinating world of hapkido, a Korean martial art, which Tammy has been practising for over 30 years now. Since then we’ve worked together on a video for [...]
Titles and credits are usually the last thing I add to my videos when I’m ready to wrap up the post-production. And I guess I’m not the only one. I do try to find a good font to match the subject and the mood of the video, but normally end [...]
This post originally appeared on Meehow Media. In April Meehow Media started working with London-based charity, Women’s Sport Trust, on a new video to highlight WST’s grant recipients. The brief was to show why the three individuals/groups are passionate about what they do as sportspeople and explain how the [...]
I love unexpected side projects. This one wasn’t even planned. I was driving to Beachy Head last Sunday when I spotted a bunch of paragliders on the side of a hill somewhere in rural East Sussex. I saw a farmer on a field nearby, asked him if it was ok [...]
Not sure why, but I completely forgot to post it earlier. Filmed a couple of weeks ago in Richmond. See more of my videos here.
This month Roger Ballen publishes his latest book, Asylum of The Birds. It’s a collection of images taken in a secret location on Johannesburg, South Africa, at a house full of uncaged birds and people. When Roger Ballen visited London almost two years ago, I shot a short film from [...]
I was filming a series of tutorials over the weekend and one of the models we worked with asked at one stage: “Guys, you keep talking about ‘B-roll’. What is B-roll?” I gave her some convoluted answer that made a distinction between your main footage and secondary footage or something [...]
Recently I met a wonderful – and wonderfully talented – man called Dave Walker. Dave draws cute (I hope he doesn’t mind the word ‘cute’) and funny cartoons. And he’s wildly popular. He focuses on two subjects: bicycles and church. Both of which have lots of fans. Dave works in [...]
Shock, horror, a legacy iPhone. Yes, and it’s coping well, thank you very much. I wanted to film something casual with my DSLR yesterday, and ended up at the revamped Borough Market. I admit: the German bratwurst with sauerkraut (20 minutes in the queue) and the raspberry and white chocolate [...]
You know, you pre-plan everything: the shots, the position of the cameras, the lighting, the sound, etc. You do a couple of dry runs in advance. And then everything changes: the venue moves (although we ended up in a nice function room in the end), the lighting is different, the [...]
Everybody has been sharing this video today – and once you watch it, you’ll know why. It shows London circa 1927 through the eyes of one Claude Friese-Greene. As the description that came with the video explains, this is “incredible colour footage of 1920s London shot by an early British pioneer [...]
Timelapse videos are becoming omnipresent and a bit repetitive. This is not a time lapse video. Not quite sure what to call this genre. Vimeo user Willie Witte uploaded this video called “Screengrab”, illustrating an experimental technique which combines video footage with screengrabs and prints. Within a few days the [...]
