Creative types: Rob Lowe aka Supermundane


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 [...]

Dear London, will you dance for me?


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 [...]

Awe-inspiring women: Tammy Parlour


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 [...]

Like a bird….


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 [...]

Almost summer


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.

What’s B-roll?


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 [...]

Borough Market and my old iPhone 4S


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 [...]

London 1927


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 [...]

Paris vs New York


Simple is beautiful. But sometimes to make something simple you need to put a lot of effort in. This lovely animation  by Tony Miotto I found on Vimeo shows – in a simple, yet, quite time-consuming (for the creator, that is) way – the differences between Paris and New York. [...]

A photographer’s journey – James M. Barrett


500px, Google+, Flickr, Twitter, Facebook. We’re bombarded by images daily, many of which are superb. Often their creators are not trained or even experienced photographers. Many of them have done – or still do – something completely different for a living. Others do follow a more traditional path and work [...]

Vimeo relaunches with new features


Vimeo, the video-sharing site that’s not YouTube, revealed a new look today and a whole list of new features and updates. The first thing you notice is that all videos are now big and looking lovely. It’s like switching from Flickr to 500px, if you know what I mean. I [...]
