Scottish Referendum

Sottish ref 587x880 Scottish Referendum

 

 

Last month the folks over at DLKW Lowe London asked me to shoot a poster for The Electoral Commission.

We headed off to Loch Chon in Scotland with a wonderful neon sign and a generator in the hope we would find that magic Scottish light.

A couple of days ago I took a vertical mile hike up to La Jonction, a huge granite ridge that leads to an area where two of Mont Blanc’s glaciers divide. My idea was to work on an ongoing project photographing these rivers of ice under the light of a full moon.

Unfortunately the weather forecast was a little out and I was caught in the middle of an electrical storm.

In the resulting series ‘Between Strikes’ I’m trying to convey that brooding summer heat and the atmosphere thick with static that one feels when thunder storms are overhead. Electromagnetic pulses lighting up these heavy skies

Nissan X Trail

It was great to be called on by the folks over at G1 Paris to shoot these new ads for the Nissan X-Trail.

We shot the car with a mixture of flash and daylight on the roof of a beautiful new studio in Paris. We then took the car out to the French Alps to shoot it by a mountain lake. It required a little mathematics to figure the correct angle of reflection and some pretty ingenious location finding to match up the angle of the sun…. it was a really fun project…

There’s something of a cultural shock when one passes through the tunnel that links France and Italy.

In days gone by you would have to travel 100′s of kilometres to negotiate this mountain in order to experience the differences of these two mountain villages.

Chamonix France and Courmayeur Italy lie on oposite slopes of this great mountain and have wonderfully different personalities.

In this new campaign for VW we had to work with a car that wasn’t available. Each vehicle was meticulously rendered in CGI by the lovely folks over at Recom Farmhouse. We then positioned the cars within backgrounds that I had already shot in the U.S and China and graded them as if they were my usual photographs. We’re very happy with the result and Bravo to DDB Berlin for creating such elegant looking ads.

Sony Bravia has been a bench mark in quality advertising for years now and I’m very happy to have been chosen by McCanns Worldwide to shoot this campaign for them.

We flew to a volcano in Costa Rica where It took the inhabitants of an entire village a full week to pluck  all the flower petals…. enough to fill two huge lorries !

With the help of a special effects team the petals were blown and exploded through our landscapes creating hugely detailed vista which echoes the extreme detail of Sony’s new 4k tv.
