Earlier this year I was asked by Adam & Eve DDB to shoot a new campaign for ebay. 
Nick and Sam from A & E DDB came up with some great and funny ideas showing how ebay can turn a bad situation into a great one!
It was a lovely shoot to do, the funniest one was the Goldfish we had a goldfish handler from Amazing Animals to help keep the star of the show under control!
BTW no animals were harmed in the making of this ad he was a train stunt goldfish!

Monocle have produced a second book, The Monocle guide to good business, and they asked me to produce some images for a couple of the chapters.
Creative director Richard Spencer Powell wanted the pictures to be shot in black and white, which I thought was a great idea. It’s been a while since I’ve shot in black and white, so it was a refreshing change to not be shooting colour. It’s a great medium to shoot in, it’s all about textures and tones and I’m really pleased with the results. 
The book looks great and if you run a business or are thinking of doing so it’s definitely worth a read.

During last year’s Marmite ‘Neglect’ campaign, one of the stars of the TV commercial was the ‘Baby One’ jar of Marmite. So much so, that Marmite produced a limited edition run of Baby Ones.
Nick and Tom (the creatives behind the campaign), thought it would be great to take a series of pictures showing how loved and cared for the Baby One is now, post rescue.  
They asked if I wanted to help and I jumped at the chance, and, with the styling talent of Caterina Gobbi, we created a series of little scenes of life after rescue. The result are these lovely, heartwarming shots of Baby Ones that have found new, loving homes.
I also had some great news at the beginning of the summer the ‘Neglect’ campaign I shot last year won some Gold Lions at this years Cannes advertising awards for best outdoor and best press advert.

It’s been a great year working with Monocle this year, and I’ve shot some great products.
For issue 72 I had to shoot a fashion accessories special which was lots of fun, at one point we had over a quarter of a million pounds worth of watches and bags in the studio!
I also shot two more shots in the series of Grundig features (see above).
Monocle celebrated their 7th year this year and I’m lucky enough to say I have had work in every issue over the last 7 years, it has been a privilege to work on such an inspiring magazine and with such lovely people here’s to another 7 years(at least)!

Can’t believe this is my first post of 2014! It’s been a busy year so far, I became a dad for the first time in November last year so Poppy has been keeping us busy but I’ve also been busy shooting a mix of advertising and editorial shoots and of course plenty of personal projects.
First off I’d like to share one of the personal projects I’ve been working on with the talented Jessica Dance.
We’ve now finish off our woolly faux food series, a woolly full english breakfast and a woolly hotdog these go with the woolly hamburger we shot last year.
It’s been a great project to work on Jess’ attention to detail making the food is fantastic and it’s been great building the environments the the food sits in.
