Britvic – Viral Video Campaign for J20 Glitter Berry

It was a last minute call to get these snappy style images done in time for a viral campaign for this festive season. We hired a nightclub, drafted in real office workers and snapped the day away. It was full on – but good fun. Take a look at the first here. H

Secret Garden – Image of the Month – September 2013

This image is from a recent fashion shoot along the theme of ‘The Secret Garden”. We were shooting in glorious direct sunlight for two days. You’d think that would be good but actually you can have too much sunlight when it comes to photography. Assistant Steve had his work cut out with shading and reflecting the sun. Thanks Steve, Harry.

Compliment for Bupa Care Photography

After a shoot for Bupa Care, my client returned the memory stick he’d borrowed to take the images on. He attached this post-it note – sometimes it’s a simple pat on the back that means the most. Many thanks, Harry

25th Shot Up North Awards 2013

This year see’s the 25th running of the SUN Awards and I’m proud to say I’ve got two images into this years exhibition, book and website. I took both in Snowdonia back in  April and worked with the dark longer lasting winter light that was on offer to me.

The Leeds Gallery hosted the evening and the show is on until 28th September, then the exhibition goes onto Manchester and Newcastle. My lovely sister Gina, joined me and many others at the evening. We didn’t manage to avoid having a cheesy snap taken together next to one of my winning images. Cheers, Harry

The New Workhorse

I’m really enjoying my new Ford S-Max. She’s my first diesel, has leather interior, panoramic roof, super sound system, sensors everywhere and is a joy to drive. Quick iPhone snap here whilst in pristine condition . Hx

Artificial Sun Flare Effect – Image of the Month – August 2013

These images are just being published by my client and I’m really proud of the flash light we used to create sun flare in this image. In the dead of winter back in January, sunlight was scarce and snow wasn’t. So my assistant used a boom arm to hold into shot a small flash head pointing directly into the lens. The effect was great and was had a lot of fun working out the best amount of power and position of the light to gain the best results. People often use software to create this effect but It’s so much nicer getting it in the camera and the clients gets excited just looking at the back of the camera. Enjoy, H.

I Believe In Monsters

It’s great to promote your mates creative work on that interweb thing! My best friend and actor Adam Lewis (pictured left below), has just done a short film. He plays an unsavoury character –  that’s fairly normal for him, both on and off the screen!!!!

Keep an eye out for it – the image links to the trailer on youtube. Cheers H.
