Oxford: Endeavour 7, FILM 2 – part 2

Friday, June 12th, 2020

When I heard there was going to be a wrestling match being filmed for Endeavour series 7 I jumped at the chance to do some behind the scenes photography – even if it did mean driving to London at the crack of dawn. The location was a working mens club and as well as the wrestling match there was also the interior of the Jolly Raja Indian restaurant which was a two for one bonus. As a kid I used to watch wrestling on World of Sport on Saturday afternoons so it was quite a treat to be transported back.

Usually I would only post pictures from the same roll of film but this time I’ve combined two rolls – a two for one bonus.

Endeavour 7: FILM 3 – part 6

Sunday, June 7th, 2020

These pictures are from the interior studio set of Castle Gate police station on the final day of filming Endeavour 7 | FILM 3. The second half of the day was spent filming in Bright’s office but as the crew were preparing that part of the set I took the opportunity to document some of the other areas as they had been left from a previous day of filming. The evidence room used to be Thursday’s office in series 6. There isn’t any natural daylight on this set, all of the lighting is courtesy of Vince and his lighting crew.

Oxford: Endeavour 7, FILM 1 – part 8

Monday, June 1st, 2020

Day one of filming Endeavour series 7 in Oxford started in New College Lane. It was a busy morning with quite a bit of coverage to film and there was a stunt involving a cyclist. It was fascinating to see the amount of planning involved for a few seconds of action on screen. One of the first scenes to be filmed didn’t make the final cut.

[Tech info]: Leica M6, 35/2.8 Zeiss Biogon, Kodak Portra 400 (could possibly be Superia 200), Noritsu scans.

Empty Oxford during lockdown

Wednesday, April 15th, 2020

On one of my cycle rides around Oxford city centre for my daily exercise during lockdown I took along my Widelux panoramic camera to document the empty streets that would usually be full of people and traffic. Truth be told, I’ve never enjoyed cycling around Oxford more than I have recently especially with cleaner air to breath and the absence of mobile phone zombies crossing the road in front of you with their eyes glued to their screens. Small benefits of lockdown.

Oxford: Endeavour 7, FILM 3 – part 2

Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

These shots were made in the Merton College gardens while the Endeavour crew were filming series 7 recently. I took along my Widelux panoramic camera because it hasn’t been getting much use lately and I was inspired to use it after purchasing Jeff Bridges’ photo book Pictures Volume 2.

[Tech info:] Widelux camera, Kodak Portra 400 film, Noritsu scans.

Oxford: Lunch break photo walk

Monday, September 16th, 2019

Some shots from a test roll I put through a Nikon FA which I recently bought. The first roll had some light leaks so I added light seals for the edges of the back of the camera using strips from a foam sheet I bought at Hobbycraft. Looks like it’s fixed the problem. These were all shot in aperture priority mode using matrix metering. The matrix metering mode only works in aperture priority on the FA, something I didn’t realise. I much prefer to use full manual mode.

[Tech info:] Nikon FA, 35/2.0D Nikon lens, orange filter, TMAX 100 (expired), developed in Tetanol Ultrafin developer. Pakon scans.

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 3 – part 2

Tuesday, February 26th, 2019

Behind the scenes photography during filming of Endeavour 6, FILM 3 – CONFECTION. The location for the day was the Oxford Union – these pictures are from the William Morris room which is decorated in beautiful Willam Morris wallpaper. I have photographed inside this room many times because the OUABC team use it to warm up in for the Town vs Gown boxing competition. The Endeavour art department did a wonderful job of transforming this room and I’ll post more detailed pictures soon.

Mapledurham at War 2018 – part 2

Sunday, December 2nd, 2018

Here are some portraits I made at a WWII re-enactment event in Mapledurham back in the summer. The weather was overcast which was perfect for the colour palette and colour negative film I was using. These shots are all from the same roll of film through my Rolleiflex 2.8F. Part 1 of my portraits can be found here, made with the same camera but different film. More to come.

[Tech info:] Rolleiflex 2.8F, Portra 160VC film (expired).

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 4 – part 2

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6 | FILM 4 in Oxford, October 2018. Day 1 of filming ended on Holywell Street in rapidly falling light thanks to the clocks changing back an hour the previous day. This is something I had anticipated and loaded a roll of Kodak Portra 400 accordingly. Day 2 started on New College Lane in very contrasty sunlight.

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 3 – part 1

Saturday, November 3rd, 2018

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour series 6, FILM 3 in Oxford. I only managed to catch the last few hours of this day’s filming but in order to avoid spoilers I only have a handful of shots to share from this roll at the moment. As usual, I will post more after broadcast.

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 2 – part 1

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

Behind the scenes during filming of FILM 2 of Endeavour series 6 in North Oxford. Mainly crew pictures from this roll, no spoilers! Other pictures will follow after broadcast some time in 2019. For a change I have been using colour film instead of b&w but I may change things up a bit – I’m still undecided about that. On this occasion I dusted off one of my least used lenses – a 50/2.0 Summicron lens which originally came with my M2 but when I tested it with b&w film I found the contrast to be lacking for my taste. It does however produce very nice results on colour film so I decided to use it on this occasion.

Oxford: Giffords Circus, 2017 – part 3

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Behind the scenes during a Giffords Circus performance in University Parks, Oxford, June 2017. For this set of pictures I tried out a longer lens than I would usually use to give me some distance for more candid results. It also allowed me to stay out of the way as the performers were preparing for the opening of the show.

[Tech info:] Nikon FM2, 100/2.8 Series E lens, Kodak Supra 200 film (expired), developed in Fuji Xpress C41 kit, Pakon scans.
