Oxford: Endeavour 7, FILM 1 – part 1

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

Filming has begun on Endeavour series 7 and I was fortunate enough to document the cast and crew at work in Oxford recently. Lots of familiar faces and some new ones too.
For this roll I rated it at ISO1600 because of the low light level indoors but when I went outdoors I knew the highlights were going to blow out so I reduced development time by 10% to reduce the contrast a little. This is something I have started to do more recently and so far I like the results.

As usual on this blog, all images will be spoiler-free until after each FILM has been broadcast.

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6 | FILM 6 in some of the interior sets including the new CID set for this series. This was the penultimate day of filming for series 6 and it was a busy day for the cast and crew with lots of different setups.

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 4 – part 5

Friday, June 7th, 2019

Some behind the scenes photography during filming of Endeavour 6 | FILM 4 in Oxford, October 2018. After filming some scenes in the main quad of Teddy Hall the action moved out to New College Lane. This was late in the afternoon with rapidly fading light as I recall. The light seemed to suit the mood of the scene.

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 2 – part 6

Wednesday, June 5th, 2019

First day of filming in Oxford of Endeavour 6 | FILM 2. This was the first episode filmed for series 6 – usually the episodes are made in chronological order. The location was one of the rooms in Exeter College which was beautifully dressed by the art department.

I sent this roll of film away to a lab for developing and unfortunately it came back with a scratch through the middle. Needless to say I haven’t used them since (thanks Ag Photo lab!).

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 4 – part 4

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019

This set of pictures is from the newly built interior set for Castle Gate police station in Endeavour series 6. This was the penultimate day of filming and as most of the filming was taking place in the mortuary I had a chance to photograph the empty set.

Oxford: Endeavour 5, FILM 6 – part 7

Behind the scenes photography from the final day of filming on Endeavour series 5. The entire day was spent inside the Cowley CID interior set and these shots are from the end of the day.

Monday, November 5th, 2018

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6 | FILM 4 in Oxford, October 2018. Teddy Hall was the location for this scene on a very chilly and overcast morning. Usually I wouldn’t push my film to ISO 1600 under daylight conditions but I wanted to see how HP5 would handle the contrast as well as having the flexibility to have a deeper depth of field than I would usually.

Oxford Union: Dave Chappelle and Jon Stewart

Friday, November 2nd, 2018

US comedians Dave Chappelle and Jon Stewart came to the Oxford Union for a Q&A event and I went along to photograph. The lighting conditions were quite challenging with so much back light but I increased the exposure to lift the shadows and trusted HP5 to handle the contrast – which it did very well. I thoroughly enjoyed the event but as the usual video crew were not there I don’t think the video will show up on the Oxford Union YouTube channel.

Oxford: Endeavour 5, FILM 4 – part 14

Saturday, June 2nd, 2018

When the 4th FILM of Endeavour series 5 was being filmed I was fortunate enough to visit the interior sets for Cowley CID. Here are some detail shots from around the Police station that I made before filming began in the morning. The attention to detail from the Art department and the props team is nothing short of incredible. It really did feel like travelling back in time.

Oxford: Endeavour 5, FILM 6 – part 6

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

Behind the scenes photography from a busy day of filming Endeavour 5 FILM 6 on Turl Street in Oxford. This was a fun day of filming with lots going on. As I look back through these pictures I notice at least one shot that was filmed which didn’t make it to the final edit – where Fred Thursday crosses the street and the Jamaican gangsters drive past in their car. The Art department did an excellent job of transforming the Oxfam Bookshop into a pet shop but you don’t really get to see much of the detail on screen in the final edit.

Saturday, May 5th, 2018

Behind the scenes photography during filming of Endeavour 5 | FILM 6 in Oxford, October 2017. The first few shots are from the scene outside the pet shop towards the end of the day when the light level was rapidly dropping. Although there was a stunt team on hand the actors did their own stunts in this scene. The following morning it was a bright and sunny start on Christ Church meadow where the harsh sunlight made it tricky to move around without casting a shadow into shot.

It’s hard to believe this was almost 7 months ago. Lots more pictures still to come from Endeavour 5.

Martin Parr Foundation field trip

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

The Oxford University Photography Society organised a field trip to visit the Martin Parr Foundation in Bristol a couple of months ago and I went along with a group of society members to have a tour of the place and to see the latest exhibition that had just gone up. Martin was a great host and after making us all tea’s and coffee’s he explained a bit of the back story of the foundation and then showed us around the building including a peek at some beautiful vintage prints and book dummy’s from other photographers that he’s collected over the years. Then after being shown a selection of photo books that are part of the ever growing library – some of which are extremely rare and valuable – we had some time to have a Q&A with Martin before having an opportunity to finish off our visit with a viewing of the current exhibition of street portraits by Niall McDiarmid.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our visit and I certainly came away with appreciating the beauty of photography in a printed form, whether that’s as a print or in a book. If you haven’t been to visit I highly recommend it and I’m very much looking forward to my next visit.
