The whole point of having a blog is so that you keep people up to date with what’s been going on and since it’s been 12 months since my last posting I have failed miserably. Much of that is because I’ve been very busy, (which is great), but how would you ever know that!
Over the last year I’ve taken photos on Sherlock Series II, Outnumbered, Morgan Spurlock’s New Brittania, Case Sensitive II, Silk Series II, Holy Flying Circus, and Ab Fab amongst others. I had the pleasure of taking Jon Hamm’s photo (of Mad Men fame) in a comedy series called The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret for The Independent Film Channel in the US. It was written by and starred David Cross, Will Arnold, Sharon Horgan, Spike Jonze & Blake Harrison (of Inbetweeners fame). A dark, strange and funny show.
And just the other day I shot Dara OBriain, Hugh Dennis & Andy Parsons for the new series of Mock The Week which airs in the summer (pics to follow later). Angst are the production company and Kat Blair & Anya Noakes at PR Matters were brilliant at making it all happen.
I was also very excited last week to hear that some of my images have been chosen as finalists into two photography competitions. The 1st is the Renaissance Photography Prize 2012. My image (below) is one of 20 finalists (out of over 6000 entries ) and the winner will be announced on the 13th June at the Mall Galleries, London.
And the other is the 2012 International Street Photography Award.
My set of 8 images (many from my A406 North Circular Project) is one of 16 Finalists from over 2,400 entries. The work will be exhibited in the 2012 International Street Photography exhibition at 29-31 Oxford Street from 1 to 30 June and the winners will be announced during the festival. So fingers crossed.
And last but not least I promise to post more regularly than once a year. Cubs honour.
