Mandalay, Myanmar

From Bagan I caught a bus to Mandalay. This city with such an iconic name is not the most pedestrian friendly, and perhaps a hard place to warm to. However I did find photographic opportunity at the famous U-Bein Bridge … Continue reading

Morocco

Over new years we escaped cold London for North Africa, however it wasn’t much warmer in Morocco. Still, there were Imperial Cities to investigate and tagines to consume. I’ve become somewhat a veteran of Morocco, this being my 4th visit, but … Continue reading

CanvasPop Review

I’m always interested in hearing from potential new suppliers and when CanvasPop got in touch it was perfect timing as I was in need of a new canvas prints supplier, who could reliably provide quality canvas’. Personally I tend to go with traditional prints for my own interior but often clients get in touch requesting my work on the canvas format.

I was very impressed with the canvas I received from CanvasPop – it arrived very well packaged, with secure cardboard and bubble wrap protecting the print. The detail looked really good, especially for a canvas which is usually printed a lower dots per inch than traditional chemical or inkjet printers. I was also grateful to the professionalism and attention to detail of the whole ordering process, being able to see a digital proof before submitting the final order is reassuring, particularly if you’re ordering a big print.

The image I ordered was a fairly old picture which was shot on Fuji Slide film (Velvia 50) at Portland Bill on a winter sunrise. I’ll be interested in seeing how work I’ve shot more recently on the high resolution Nikon D810 comes out on CanvasPop prints, as the incredible amount of detail I find in current files should lend itself well to large scale reproduction.

BTS work for M & C Saatchi / Foot Locker

I had the pleasure to travel to the Romanian capital of Bucharest in July to work for M & C Saatchi and the American sports shoes company Foot Locker. The task was to capture Behind the scenes stills showing the talent, products and crew in action during the filming of a series of commercials being shot for Foot Locker’s web campaigns. Here are a few of my favourite images from the first, Mad Max, style advert. See the finished film here.
