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.

The ‘Combats de Reine’ is a mountain sport where farmers from around the Alps bring out their prized cows for a spot of gentle fighting.  The winner is crowned La Reine des Reins – The Queen of Queens and sure is a sexy winner !

The jet lag is only just wearing off from last weeks flight back from Tokyo and I’m already wanting to return.

Before we left there was a distinct feeling of spring in the air and the cherry trees were already starting to bud. I reckon in two or three weeks the city… and a lot of Honshu will explode into colour.

These pictures were made on a sprinting trip in 08 but never developed and serve as encouragement for me to go back an keep visually exploring that wonderful country.

Barry Sanders, RG 3, Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart…. four legends of American football…. and a massive grizzly bear. This commission from the folks over at TBWA Chiat Day L.A was so much fun to shoot. As with a lot of these things the sporting personalities were on a super tight deadline…. throw in a full blown TV commercial on the same day and as you can imagine…. timing and logistics were paramount. The day was micro managed down to the last second. We had three sets simultaneously running so we could quickly hop into the right place should TV make some last min changes to their schedule. It was a crazy day but our team pulled it off…. and we had some fun at the same time…..

I’m flying back to London, working on this series and thinking about William Eggleston’s ‘Democratic Forest’
I guess Eggleston in that book was trying to be free from the constraints of working to a particular self imposed brief.. and instead just allowed himself to take pictures.
I think I was unintentionally doing the same thing yesterday when I shot these. I just wanted to spend a day taking pictures of things that I was attracted to and work with the colour of each individual image as opposed to trying to explore a theme.
So Mr Eggleston… Thankyou for continuing to inspire me to explore and learn.
