Newsletter – September 2012
I am very proud to release an edited montage of HD footage captured on assignments or during personal work from the last 4 years. The content reflects both my style of photography and a continued interest in documenting both sustainability and environmental issues. There’s a healthy mix of time-lapse, landscape and people montaged and over-laid by a slick Ninja Tune track.
A popular cliché, but it feels like a natural and exciting move into the possibilities of video work.
I have begun to incorporate the new creative and narrative possibilities into both my personal and commissioned assignments backed up by a full editing and grading setup here in London.
Core Group of Reportage by Getty Images
Reportage by Getty Images have been looking after my feature work for last 3 years and I have been promoted upto a represented photographer within their core group. I’m very happy to be sharing a great roster with a list of talented and commited photographers. Many of us have just returned from Visa Pour L’Image, Photojournaliism Festival where I showed the Madagascar project’s images and broadcast showreel on the Canon Professional Network stage.
By working closer with the editors in London and New York we hope to deliver even more editorial and corporate assignments whilst placing personal work. Recent highlights include assignments for The Sunday Times, National Geographic (above) and The New Yorker Magazine.
New Personal Project on Agriculture
I’ve shifted my personal research from the industrial might of the energy industry towards the incredible diversity of agriculture in Britain and beyond. This change is motivated by a personal interest in the production of our food but perhaps more importantly the changing relationship between consumers, farmers, their livestock and the landscape they have toiled for millennia.
The ideas currently outnumber the tear-sheets ahead of starting the project wholly next month. As with my Renewables Project I aim to travel and live in my truck to get close to the subject regardless of the elements. I aspire to combine the beauty and structure of the environment with an intimate portrayal of the communities and culture that live on and indeed shape the land.
Do get in touch with any good sheep jokes or for further information as the project gets started.
