Immaculate conceptions

Last month I was approached by Ryan Watson, from Shots magazine, to see if he could interview me, I jumped at the chance! Shots is a great Magazine. It has featured some of best photographers and Directors of the past few decades, including some of my favourites.

It’s always a bit nerve wracking being interviewed, but I had nothing to worry about it – it turned out to be a lovely piece and, I am very pleased with the end result (thanks Ryan).

It’s also nice to have so many of my shots featured, both new and old.

When the article’s on their website, I’ll add a link – in the meantime go get a copy! 😉

Don’t forget it!

Last month I shot the latest Marmite campaign for Adam & Eve DDB with creative team – Tom Webber and Nick Sheppard.

It has to be one of the most enjoyable shoots I’ve worked on for a long time, from start to finish. Sometimes you get layouts sent through and you can tell straight away that it’s going to be a great ad, this was no exception. It’s such a clever and simple idea, and the way they wanted it shot was right up my street!

All the guys from A&EDDB and Marmite were great to work with. It was a fun couple of days shoot, if not a little sticky at times! (I’ve just about got the smell of Marmite off my Camera gear).

Wesley West had a great time making all the prop products that are in the cupboards. I helped out by shooting the food photography for the packaging, I couldn’t resist having my photo’s in one of my photos!

The TV ads they’ve created are also great and very funny and are causing a bit of a stir right now, as you’ve probably seen!

My posters are going up around the UK on 48 sheet posters and 6 sheet – keep an eye out for them.

Why not visit the Marmite site and help end Marmite neglect!
But don’t report us here, I promise we will get through all of theses soon enough!
