Yesterday I posted our video from our shoot with Gossard Lingerie’s Spring Summer 2013 advertising campaign today I just wanted to show a couple photos from that great day with a great team.
We always love working with One Mega Management and the team at Gossard Lingerie as well as photographer Cameron James Wilson. This behind the scenes film was shot for Gossards range of lingerie and swimwear for the Spring and Summer 2013 line. The film was shot in South London with Canon cameras, Canon and Samyang lenses as well as Manfrotto tripods and a Glidetrack slider.

Earlier this year we were asked by Hong Kong make up artist and production manager Wil Wu to fly to Bangkok Thailand for a series of bridal editorial shoots for a store in Hong Kong. These didn’t exactly turn out as planned, as storyboards were thrown out because of location, timing and weather.
This first film was shot outside of Bangkok, about an hour in a place I should have written down but didn’t. I remember looking up the temperture and seeing that it was a good 45 degrees celsius that day, enough that the models make-up was melting and our gear became very hot very fast.
I have owned a Fuji x100 for a while now and I bought it after after such incredible reviews everywhere online when it first came out. It was the start of the digital retro movement and the x100 sure was a stylish offering. I did have my reservations because of the attached fixed lens but I like to shoot with prime lenses, so I pulled the trigger and bought one.
At first I was in love and it never left my side. I loved the small body as opposed to carrying around one of my Canon DSLR’s or that brief period where I became obsessed with film and carried an EOS3 with me. I loved the colours from it. I loved the sharp beautiful lens and as I suspected the fixed lens did not bother me much.
There were two downsides that made lose some of my love. One is the autofocus which is on the slow side, the second is the battery life. The autofocus well there was nothing I could do about that, I just had to take my time. The battery life, that one was easy – I went on ebay and bought three third-party batteries for about £12 and that problem was solved.
After much careful deliberation I have decided to sell my Fuji X100 as it’s just not getting used as much as I thought it would. If you are interested in purchasing a great camera send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org

What better way to end the summer than with the truly beautiful wedding of Lisa & Tom in stunning Puglia, Italy.
We were asked by Emma of Luna Rossa Weddings to take the short flight over and capture their day. Tom and Lisa are both lawyers based in Nottingham but Lisa being from Wales and Tom from the North it was safe to say there were some thick accents in attendance. They are a lovely couple that really showed their guests something special.
The ceremony was held on a beautiful beach and I think the reception was summed up by Niki’s statement – “This is the best wedding food I’ve ever had”. Not only was it the best food but there was so much of it that I think we skipped a meal a two the following day.
We spent an extra day exploring the town of Bari and a night to walk around Milan as well, I didn’t take many photos but here are a couple:
