Man With A Brush Film Screening & Exhibition

Over the past few months Dimension2 and Scene Photography have been working on a short documentary and photography collaboration, which shines a spotlight on Mike Meyer, an endearing, eccentric and renowned sign painter from midwestern America.  Mike Meyer discovered sign painting as a free-spirited youngster and never wanted to do anything else. Despite the art-form fading from the mainstream, his untamed passion and willingness to go all the way have taken him on an unlikely journey from small-town maverick to globetrotting guru.  Here are some pictures taken from the exhibition and screening that we held at The Savoy Cinema in Nottingham and Second Home in Shoreditch, London. The film will be available to view soon exclusively on https://www.nowness.com  Thanks to Ralph Barklam for the event photography.

Electrolyte Shoot In St Tropez, London & The Lake District

Here are a selection of shots from our recently completed project commissioned by Kong agency for their client bike company Electrolyte.  To show the diversity of the bike ranges, three very different locations were selected, St Tropez, London and The Lake District.  Then two days in the studio for the product photography.  As well as the stills we also worked alongside our friends at Magenta Films who joined us in St Tropez to shoot a film too.  It was a great shoot and we had a great team on board. Models by Blake Models, styling by Lisa Elliott, art direction by Kong.

Spitfire studio room set shoot

Here are some shots from the second shoot for Spitfires own huge marketing campaign.  Again (somewhat whacky) was thoroughly enjoyable!  The guys at Spitfire wanted to achieve a “Stanley Kubrick” feel and so to create this they had three epic room sets built in our studio, which I think you’ll agree the results are fantastic.  Again shooting alongside Dimension2 as they worked on the film itself.  (The footage will be launched later in the year).  Check out their blog

Spitfire shoot at Dungeness

Our friends at Spitfire have been working on a big campaign for their own marketing and I was asked to do the still photography alongside Dimension2 whom were leading the filming.  Spitfire organised one of the coolest locations for the shoot in the UK, Dungeness.  I really enjoyed the ideas they came up with and was lots of fun working with them on it.  This was the first of two shoots and the film will be launched later in the year

Victoria Square Belfast

Took a trip out to Belfast recently with Madison Soho to shoot for a billboard campaign for their client Victoria Square.  This was to promote the Spring/Summer 2015 collections for the fashion retailers housed within the complex.  Again working with fantastic models and a great team it was a fab shoot, although very cold, encountering snow on a rooftop shoot and having to go out and buy hats, scarves and gloves…here are a few pics of the final result, more to be rolled out over the next few weeks.

Trefecta Shoot In Monaco

I was recently asked by our friends at Magenta Films  and design agency Conspiracysinc to take a trip over to Monaco to shoot stills for the prototype of an amazing bike designed by Trefecta whom claim a new category of vehicle, an electric superbike.  Trefecta have achieved military recognition for being highly suited for peace and stability operations.  To top it off the shoot was also during the time of the Grand Prix, so this was bound to be a little different.  What a location and a fabulous bit of kit to photograph too!

Once the location shoot in Monaco was complete, Trefecta came over to the UK for a shoot in our studio too.  Again working alongside our friends at Magenta Films who created some amazing footage of this bad ass bike.  Here are some shots for you to enjoy!

Blackwell & Wootton food shoot

Blackwell & Wootton are a bespoke catering business offering a very unique way of entertaining.  Check out their website to experience what they have to offer.  We were blown away to watch their culinary skills in action using only the finest most naturally sourced and seasonal ingredients.  We were also lucky enough to taste, as myself and the crew got to eat the food in the pics for lunch!!!!! YUM!!  It was nice to be shooting something quite different and as always Spitfire did an amazing job with the concept and the art direction.  As well as stills, there was an element of film required for their website which was all shot by Dimension2 alongside me over the days of the shoot.  Thanks to Chris Law for the behind the scene shots.
