Oxford: Endeavour 5, episode 5 – part 4

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour series 5 episode 5 in Brasenose college, Oxford. These pictures are from the last part of a  long day where the rapidly descending sun was causing all sorts of issues with long shadows being cast where you don’t want them. We had nice light all day and I chose this particular film stock (Portra 400) because I knew it would not only cope well with the contrasty light but also the extra speed would come in handy in the shade as the light level dropped.

Oxford: English Eccentrics shoot

Sunday, August 17th, 2014

Some film shots from a promo shoot I did for the Christ Church Commemoration Ball 2014 who’s theme was English Eccentrics. This was a really fun shoot to do but one of those times where I wished I had more time to shoot film. Thank you to everyone that gave up their time for this shoot and to the amazing Tori for putting it all together.

Oxford: Giffords Circus, 2014 – part 2

Saturday, August 16th, 2014

Colour portraits of some of the Giffords Circus performers when they were in Oxford last month. They’re such a talented group and very patient with me photographing them back stage during the performances. The light was very different this year to last, it was also quite a bit hotter on most of the days. The sun was beating down for most of the day so I’d take slow film with me but then by early evening heavy clouds would roll in and the light level would drop quite a bit which made things tricky but that’s all part of the fun with film. I find that being challenged keeps things interesting and you pay a lot more attention to the light than you would if you were just changing the ISO in a menu on the back of the camera.
