Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 1 – part 2

Friday, September 21st, 2018

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6, FILM 1 in Oxford, August 2018. Magdalen College was the location for the end of the first day of filming in Oxford and the next morning started off in Oriel Square at a very busy intersection with Merton Street. The crew did an excellent job of keeping the scene clear of modern day vehicles throughout the morning.

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 1 – part 1

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

Some behind the scenes shots from day one of three in Oxford filming Endeavour 6, FILM 1. I’m continuing to use mostly colour film for a change but I did manage to use a couple of b&w rolls as well during the three days of filming. I can’t share very much at the moment to avoid spoilers but more pictures will follow after broadcast.

Oxford: Summer Eights 2018 – panoramic

Friday, June 1st, 2018

The final day of Summer Eights is always a favourite event of mine to photograph during the summer. Here are some shots I made with a Russian panoramic camera. Each frame is approximately 1.5 times the width of a regular 35mm frame and the camera has a built in spirit level that you can see through the viewfinder to help you keep the camera level when required. It’s fun to use and I like the results especially at an event where there is so much going on around you.

Oxford: Endeavour 5, FILM 5 – part 7

Saturday, May 19th, 2018

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour series 5 FILM 5 in Oxford. It was a sunny Sunday morning when special branch arrived at Brasenose College to take the college porter for a ride. The final scenes from this Endeavour FILM were filmed first thing in the morning and then the rest of the day was spent filming various scenes within the college grounds.

Oxford: Endeavour 5, episode 2 – part 7

Saturday, October 7th, 2017

Behind the scenes photography from the filming of Endeavour series 5, episode 2 in Oxford, June 2017. This set of pictures were made with 35mm film and you can compare them to the previous post which was medium format film from the same day – different formats and different film stocks give you different looking images of the same thing. The last few shots below are from the following day in the Covered Market.

Oxford: Endeavour 5, episode 3 – part 1

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

Behind the scenes photography during filming of Endeavour series 5 episode 3 in Oxford. It was a very hot day in July and the crew had a very busy schedule as I recall because they were only in Oxford for one day on this occasion. I decided to use colour film for a change to capture the summery feel. It’s not often you see the lighting crew setting up lights outside in bright sun but I must say it did make the front of the Jaguar look nice.

Oxford: Endeavour 5, episode 2 – part 2

Monday, July 10th, 2017

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour series 5, episode 2. There are other shots on this roll that I can’t post yet because of spoilers but I’ll post them after broadcast next year. On this roll there are some shots from Oxford and others from the amazing day I spent at the Endeavour HQ. I’ve been using quite a lot of Fuji Superia 200 film recently and I’m impressed with the results so far. At nearly half the price of Kodak Portra 400 you can’t go wrong.

Cambridge: Day trip

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

My very first visit to Cambridge was in August last year. Up until then I’d always been put off going there because I’m not a huge fan of driving and there isn’t a fast/easy route there from Oxford but when a fellow film photographer friend of mine offered to drive, I was happy to tag along for the trip. My first impression was that Cambridge had better shopping compared to Oxford but from a visual point of view I think Oxford easily wins without a doubt. It seems like the only way to see much of the colleges is by travelling along the river but if that’s not what you’re interested in doing you still have to put up with being hassled every minute by people selling boat trips and punts for hire. I’ve never seen anything like it. Apart from that I had a great time walking the streets of somewhere new, observing life and the comings and goings.

Oxford: Saturday session

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

At the end of November I went into town on a Saturday morning to do some photography and here are some images that I made. This was a couple of days after Black Friday and shoppers were out looking for bargains in the run up to Christmas. It was great to come across a breakdance crew busting some moves. When I was younger I remember seeing breakdance crews in town, laying out their square of lino to dance on, boom box blasting out tunes to attract the attention of passers by. It’s nice to see the current generation keeping the tradition alive.

Oxford: Christ Church Commemoration Ball 2014 – part 1

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Christ Church College is such a grand venue for a summer ball and back in July the summer’s evening light was absolutely perfect for the occasion. After doing the promo photography I was really looking forward to this ball and it was worth the wait. These shots were made with a little point and shoot compact camera and I really like the snapshot feel to them. After the sun went down for a time it was so dark in Tom Quad that I could hardly see who I was photographing but somehow the camera still managed to focus. Many thanks to Tori for inviting me and for helping organise such a wonderful event.
