London Craft Beer Event Films

The annual London Craft Beer Festival see’s hundreds of thousands of beer aficionados sample drafts from dozens of breweries at this 3-day event that includes music performances & pop-up eateries. We took to the crowds with the brief of shooting a selection short vox pop style films as well as documentary stills and exhibitor portraits for social. With so many interesting beers, stories and people on offer, we couldn’t get enough!

24 Hours of Street Photography on the London Underground.

On the 18th of November 2016 I took a trip. A 24 hour trip. I didn’t have a destination in mind or plan for that matter but it would involve street photography and spending 24 hours on the London Underground Night Tube – specifically, the Northern Line and its stations. So I’d get the first train at 5.25am on Thursday 18th right through to the same time the following morning of the 19th November. Crazy right? 24 Hours of Non-Stop London Underground Photography.

Charity Event Video Coverage

Event Film At Woolston Manor Golf Club

Not only was it genuinely exciting to film this charity event video for Woolston Manor Golf Club (we love a little bit of golf over at Oh Brother Creative), 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 promotional 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

Street Photography in Dusseldorf

Capturing Street Photos in Dusseldorf

With a trip already planned for Dusseldorf, I thought it would be a great opportunity to squeeze in some street photography while I was there. At the time of booking it felt like a great idea to stay an extra day to capture some street photos, however, following 2 days of drinking German beer, I was starting to wonder if it actually was. On the surface of things, street photography seems like it’s an easy task of just pointing your camera at interesting things. But in reality, it takes an immense amount of focus and concentration to plan your frames. As well as the confidence to capture moments and remain inconspicuous. Continue Reading

SmallHD Focus Bright Review : A Hands-On Account

Hands-on with the SmallHD Focus Bright: A Review

So today I thought I’d give you my SmallHD Focus Bright Review.  As a professional in the video production industry, 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 for commercial video filming. (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 commercial photography.

Tall Ships Band 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.

Exploring Botany Bay Kent

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.
