My thanks go out to the “Super Cool Swede” Arne Ringner creator of many a fine restaurant and idea, as well as his management team headed by Mark down at the Clifton Lido . After a bit of a worry with a technical gremlin everyone had a great time making pics and generally splashing around.

Sporting a real fancy pair of stripy pants we have Mr Benjamin Davies Esq entertaining his mum Lucy, whilst the other star of the show Henry has a bit of a chuckle with mum Alex. Thanks to Mustard Models for their usual care and attention.

A Quick Tear sheet from the current campaign for McCarthy & Stone commissioned by EMO Unlimited. Ably styled by Natalie Corfield and Jaine Bevan with hair and make up by Jyn San on the Mustard Models roster. Models in this image are all fabulous folk from Mustard as well. In this pic we have the divine Pearl Read with the fantastic Nicky Bean in the centre supported beautifully by the graceful Susie Coats  all talking to the irrepressible Harry Damsell who was making sure they weren’t er… in distress. [Sorry Harry, if you had a pound eh]

Currently running in the nationals and The Oldie magazine I believe. My thanks to everyone at McCarthy & Stone who helped us make the production a smooth and enjoyable experience.

Here is a sneaky one of some the new images from a commission from Mustard Models which will be going into post over the next few days (These are straight out of Capture One Pro as shot). Make Up by Jo Priestley from Mustard and models Sal, Liz and George all looking lovely. From a creative perspective these are extremely satisfying, fairly tricky to shoot but hitting the brief of creating stills from a film and creating a sense of three dimensional space – a voluminous perception.

Here’s a very sneaky peek at a shoot I’m working the post on today, Some strong portraits for Getty. This is the lovely Chris and Sue at Mustard Models who were sooo lovely I have to give them a big biggady biggady bong as they were both brilliant to work with and spot on with what we were trying to achieve.

All this going through images to update the site is throwing up some stuff to blog that I couldn’t at the time as stuff hadn’t gone live, Above is one of the final shots from the recent Lloyds campaign and massive thanks to Stenor the client company whose energy and enthusiasm was tremendous, below is a little video of the scene of this shoot, carefully overdubbed to hide the immoderate amount of swearing from yours truly on the original! Taken during a break when everyone else had magically disappeared having decided that the top of these pile of rocks with the wind coming in off the sea and the rain lashing down was not the place to be!  No problem for our new 4motion Kombi but hey that’s why we got it and its a fantastic production vehicle,  it did us proud and hauled all the kit you need to stay sane and come away with the shot in these conditions.

Here we have Paul the AD with the smile of a man who’s plan on being somewhere nice very shortly is entering stage 1, with Rob on 1st assist finding a new use for his swimming goggles which sadly never did see the hotel pool.
