A big thank you to Riann Steele, Tristan Rockcliffe and Chiron Cole in helping make this unusual lifestyle shoot possible.
On the 4th of April the Queen hosted a special celebration of the British film industry at Windsor Castle. With over two hundred guests invited the cream of the industry were in attendance with some of the movie world's most iconic names including George Lucas, Christopher Lee, John Hurt, Richard Curtis, Christopher Nolan, Kenneth Branagh, Carey Mulligan, Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hooper, Leslie Phillips, Idris Elba, Minnie Driver, Damien Lewis and many more.
As part of the Number 10 initiative to promote all aspects of British business abroad, the 'Film is Great Britain' campaign team were invited to Windsor Castle to help capture some of these prestigious figures and to help celebrate the true strength of the British film making industry one hour before the Queen's reception.
Working with an amazing client, a team of very helpful and friendly staff at the palace and the creative agency Radley Yeldar, we were able to create two working sets for stills photography and film within the State Apartments, only two rooms aways from the Queen's Reception room the location for the main event.
Our teams worked quickly to set up and we all managed to avoid any mishaps with the original Rubens paintings! After weeks of planning and production the whole team were ready for one frantic hour of work.
The result. A truly memorable shoot. Including fantastic film footage of George Lucas praising the skills of British film crews, beautiful campaign images shot by Ian Derry, a chat with John Hurt, a hug from Jonathan Ross and a client transfixed by Idris Elba.
A massive thank you to all involved in the project, it was truly a GREAT day. I would especially like to thank Radley Yeldar for getting me involved in the art direction but also commissioning me to shoot portraits and behind the scenes footage of the event.

This is my entry to theburninghouse.com a simple idea of photographing some of the things you would take with you if your house burnt down. Collecting records made this short list very tricky indeed.

Whilst editing all the pictures for my new website I came across some old photos that brought back some fun memories of working in Los Angeles on a car lifestyle shoot. The model in all the shots is Olanna Taskey.
A very fast turnaround test portrait shoot for a potential client. Photography takes you to some really unusual locations. Tom lives within a gated community right next door to Brixton Prison, a really interesting place.
Before the end of 2012 I started working with Robert, John and Ed at undercurrent brands on developing lifestyle photography for CBS Outdoor. CBS Outdoor provide assets for advertising space across Europe. We started the project with a test day. The concept was incredibly simple, to capture beautiful portraiture of people looking off camera engaged in advertising. The portraiture is all about suggestion which I love, it creates a real intrique to the work.
A really interesting day art directing and shooting behind the scenes of the new GREAT BRITAIN CAMPAIGN. It's amazing what you can produce in a day, it was a real pleasure working with Uwe Breitkopf and his team. Many thanks to Radley Yeldar for letting me be involved in the project.
The MINI John Cooper Works will be an on the road in Germany as part of a British promotional campaign partnered by MINI Germany. The MINI will make its appearance as an icon of British culture at every stage of the campaign tour through Germany’s 16 federal states. The GREAT campaign was launched on 17 January 2013 in Berlin, with Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie of York. The initiative is to promote Britain as a tourist destination and business base, along with British companies whose products are sold in Germany.
