Nice punchy aesthetic for the Q3 launch with the Argentinian goal king, Mr. Sergio Aguero for PUMA. Movement frozen with Broncolor Move of course, what else you gonna use on location huh? Challenging as these fellas travel quick and we needed to capture the apparel in flight, plus we had to shoot in all the conditions, day and night and rain and shine. And freezing cold, in Manchester here. Brrrrrr. Great though, home of football and all that.
Whoever said don't meet your heroes was wrong. Am always banging on about the privilege of my job but DAMN, sometimes this job floats up opportunities I still am so excited by. To spend the day at Ringstead Bay in Dorset, where I swam as a nipper, to shoot this most beautiful of talents was a nice call to get for someone like me. The portraits were for the National Trust, via Mischief PR, who have commissioned John to write a poem to help save and celebrate our wonderful coastline - More here. My friend described him as the Dad you wished you had. My Dad is great but I could happily accommodate more JCC in my life. Printed in the Independent and Express, and elsewhere online. Very nice indeed.
This was just bloody magnificent. A press and PR shoot for EE of James Kingston, freerunner and generally fearless danger monkey launching a 4G streaming camera. 3 months of planning, 60 people in production and then me, up in a helicopter, leaning out and shooting this. Good, right? We tethered to a laptop and WeTransferred the RAW files from the air via EE's 4G dongle to an editor below in Wembley Stadium. Insanely quick and enabling the pictures to splash, big. Made every national print version the next day and everyone involved got a pat on the back. Solid work chaps.
