Filming Scotland - Salmon Fishing, Shetland and Orkney - March 2017

Over the moon to finally be able to blog about this one...just one of those beautiful jobs that make the whole hard slog of self employment in the creative sector worth every moment. Simple set up - me with one camera, no assistant, free style reportage and portraiture...in a mad rush. 4 planes, 2 4x4's, 4 x fishing boat, 4 ferries...and many islands...all round The glorious Shetland and Orkney Isles. An awesome job!!!!!

Client - Union Advertising

Art Direction - Andrew Muenchow

Production - Dave Nielson at Filming Scotland

Vietnam War Veterans - USA Oct 2017

I spent 4 weeks shooting in the USA in Oct-Nov 2017. It was veterans day on the 10th of November and I was asked by Kiosk to shoot a series of war veteran portraits for a Marin County based publication.  A nice feature was published on veterans day. I've chosen a few of The Vietnam War Veterans that were part of the process to show below. These gentlemen have now become part of a larger longer-term project which is currently under development.  It was an absolute pleasure to work with all the veterans. A one day shoot turned into a week due to the volume of volunteers...so many moving stories. No matter your personal, political and subjective views of war or a particular war. You can't fail to be humbled by people's personal sacrifice at times of conflict. Ultimately the cost of war is everyday regular people...either dead or damaged. It's a sad reality of the human condition...

HADDSTOCK2017 - A little venture into moving image - June 2017

My wife of the time had a whim to have a local music festival! 2 months later she pulled off Haddstock 2017. Fair play to her...it was a lot of fun! She asked me to make a wee film for her to show off all the elements and to help wth future funding! Just me, one lens and the old canon 5D. Footloose and fancy free, hand held and half cut! Watch out for Haddstock 2018

 

 

Sarah Lauder - Highland Park Whisky - May 2017

Aw finally....a lovely big juicy whisky job! For the awesome Highland Park. Funnily enough one of the first whisky's I ever tried. The story goes that whilst assisting Craig Easton 20 odd years ago...we were on assignment for BBC books for a Rick Stein Book. Craig's 70's VW camper van broke down in The Highland Park Distillery carpark! We got stuck there for days...what a shame!!!!

Fabulous team on this one, all my favs! One day in East Lothian and one day in London. Bells and whistles and great results.
