Event Film At Woolston Manor Golf Club
Not only was it genuinely exciting to film this charity event for Woolston Manor Golf Club (we love a little bit of golf over at Oh Bro), but an honour to be able to document their annual Remembrance Day competition in support of the Royal British Legion. The club briefed us to produce a documentary style film that encapsulated the spirit of the event, in an unobtrusive way. After all, this was a real life competition, and we didn’t want want to put anyone off on their backswing! Continue Reading
Hands-on with the SmallHD Focus Bright: A Review
So today I thought I’d give you my SmallHD Focus Bright Review. I’m not new to the world of SmallHD monitors, having previously owned the 501 full HD model. At the time it was a necessary purchase. Quite simply because the rear screens on the A7s & A7sii are not far from unusable.. (Sony, PLEASE rectify this on the MKiii !). Mind you, having had a little play on the new Sony A9 and witnessing the crystal clear screen used on that, I’m hopeful that this upgraded screen will filter down their models. Continue Reading
First Impressions Fuji XT2
It’s here, it’s finally here. After months of anticipation and research, it’s finally arrived. Now before I start this post I must inform you that this isn’t a full-on review about the Fuji XT2 but more why I decided to purchase it in 2016, over the stiff competition (such as the Sony A7 range) and why it’s a worthwhile investment to a full-frame SLR photographer like myself for professional photography.
Photographing a live band performance in London
Our journey into commercial photography all started with band photography back in two thousand and … gosh, I’d rather not think about it as it makes me feel pretty old, but early 00’s at some point! It’s been a while since I managed to get myself down to a gig in London, but a bit of luck got me a ticket to watch one of my favourite bands, Tall Ships, playing a private release show at Cheap Monday store on Carnaby Street, which has sadly now closed it’s doors to the public.
Visting the white cliffs and chalk stacks of Botany Bay
As a photographer, it’s hard to travel anywhere without my camera by my side, as you never know what you might miss. Sometimes you get really lucky with the locations you visit and get to capture something pretty special while you’re passing through and Botany Bay in Kent proved to be one of those trips.

Creative Photography Contest London
In July 2016 I was lucky enough to be selected to take part in the Adobe Creative Jam event in Shoreditch. The street photography event in London was an opportunity for 8 photographers to go out with a given brief and photograph what they thought it meant to them. However, the catch was you had 2 hours to do this followed by another hour to edit and then take these images and turn them into a story using their newly developed Adobe Spark blogging software. As you can imagine this was great fun but also quite difficult as the brief could be interpreted in so many ways. So what was the brief I hear you cry?
