Recently got back from another installment of China. This time was more enjoyable than the last. I think partly due to the fact I saw the sun for more than a couple of hours in 12 days but also I knew what to expect this time, so I wasn’t being bombarded with a sensory overload!

Spent 13 days over in Shanghai assisting Rob from Scene Photography. Days were pretty long in the studio, but we managed get some time in the evenings to go explore the city.. which is massive and crazy busy.
Above is a PanoDrop taken with the quad-copter over the building we were working in.

Me and my brother went on a night mission (above photo is at night. Full moon providing the light) to explore this military radar base on the Greek island, Kefalonia. The date was Friday the 13th of June 2014. I’ve found it tricky to find much info on this place, so, if any one knows more, get in touch!

Was invited to take photos at the Nottingham based Detonate Festival. It was their first festival, and they absolutly smashed it. It was held at the Nottingham Race Course, which at first I was skeptical about how good of a venue it would be. Turned out to be a great idea. Loads of amazing artist (including Andy C, above) and the sun was shining.

A lot of pre planning went into this shoot, camera angles were pretty important to capture as much action as possible, so we had filmers dotted all over the mountain. Me, Ad and Pierre hiked the face in the morning in just under 1 hour 30. We were positioned at the starting line at the top. It was my job to capture heli shots of people dropping in.
Over all it was a really enjoyable job, got to meet some great people and the final edit really worked out :)

Spent a long weekend up in the rad cabin near Tahoe, CA, USA. A friend’s parents brought the property back in the 70s and have been renovating it ever since. I walked through some shrubs and snow to capture this shot of the house from the opposite river bank.
Setup shot after the break..
Finally got round to trying out a PanoDrop from the sky. I put a GoPro in 0.5 of a sec timelapse mode, and sent the DJI Phantom up. I had it in GPS mode so once I’d found a position I thought would look good I rotated the heli around slowly to capture a selection of images to make up the 360° panorama. From there I stitched the stereographic image as normal. Hopefully I’ll get round to making a few of these :)
While working in London with Alex, he spotted this building that stood out from the rest. It turns out it’s an art installation by Alex Chinneck. We thought it would be cool to have Alex riding by and then flip the image to make it a little trippy. I had to adjust the angle of the perspective in post to give the impression the image was taken from the ‘bottom‘ looking up, and not the other way round.

Working with Rubber Goat Films as they capture footage for their documentary ‘Flat’. I have been shooting some heli shots of the demolition process for them. I’ve also taken this opportunity to capture some images of the process. I’ve been waiting about 6 months to capture the following shot. I wanted to get a ‘before and after’ type photo of Digby Court being constructed in 1960 (Source: Lenton Times) and demolished in 2014. Cant wait to publish the heli footage from this.. it looks awesome!
