Its been a long time in the making but I am currently exhibiting my show East of my Youth & the West of my Future at the Paul Smith Globe exhibition space at heathrow Terminal 5. I think Paul Smith make some great clothes and support some amazing artists I was very excited to be asked to exhibit my show at their space.
I've been working with Vans a lot recently and last month they commissioned me to shoot one of their biggest London events so far; The Vans Warped tour. It was a mixture of skate demos and live music to a crowd of 14,000. Here are a few of the shots I got...
Earlier this summer I was commissioned to shoot a promo video for The New Mastersounds. They've had much success touring abroad in the US, Europe and Japan but for some reason never shot a music video (despite playing together for 13 years!!)... sooo we decided to go all out on this one and head to Spain to shoot it, underwater.
Its a pretty 'tongue in cheek', guerrilla style video and I'm really happy with the outcome. The song is "You Mess Me Up" and is the first single on their new album "Out on the Faultline", in shops now.
I also need to say a massive thank you to the guys at Ocean Leisure for their help and expert advise with the camera housing!
I was very excited to get a copy of the new issue of Whitelines Snowboarding magazine through the post last week because when I opened I unexpectedly found my photograph of Sam Turball on the front cover! I've had a quite a few cover shots with various magazines in the past, but this one was much more exciting for me as I had started reading Whitelines back in 1997, when I first tried snowboarding at the local dryslope. It only took me 15 years to get there but I'm finally on the cover!
The issue also features an 8 page story I shot earlier this year in italy. It will be in shops from this week if you want to get a copy.
I was really excited this year to be asked to photograph the opening of Oxfam'sOxjam Music festival 2012. Oxjam is a charity music festival the runs all over the UK and helps new and upcoming band get noticed at the same time as raising money for some of the worlds disadvantaged people. An Oxjam event can be set up by anyone and they hope more people will get involved so for the opening week they enlist the help of some big named acts to help inspire people and publicise the event. This year they had Graham Coxon, Hot Chip, Four Tet, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Lucy Rose and more.
