Really proud of our latest project – Myself & Andy Cottey have worked together to light the ITV Euro 2016 presentation studios in Paris. Thanks to the amazing team for going above and beyond…
What an amazing end to what has been hailed as the best World Cup in the games history. For me personally, it’s been a year of planning to bring together the camera crewing of ITV’s presentation along with the lighting design and delivery of their live onsite studios across all of the World Cup venues. Thanks to all of the team that have made it a pleasure to work on…here’s to Japan in 2019!
As promised I’ve been featured in the winter edition of Monoblog magazine wooooo 🙂
The Italian sense of humor as Chelsea play Juventus in Turin 😉
I haven’t flown on a PropPlane for years, I’m always memorized by them…it was a beautiful day as we flew over the Alps.
Shooting Elgar’s enigma variation IX ‘Nimrod’ at the Cenotaph was unbelievably moving. The sheer number of veterans and people paying their respects to our fallen soldiers is something we should be incredibly proud of and never forget.
I had to post this picture taken on the rig day as the lady in front of the cenotaph managed to get her dog to pose for ages on the steps while she edged further back with her union jack handbag to take the snap !
One of my favourite shows to work on…The Leeds international piano competition at Leeds town hall – Breathtakingly talented musicians!
Had a great time at Shambala trying out some new lighting http://www.shambalafestival.org
I love the architecture on Tyneside and was lucky enough to shoot the BBC Young Musician 2012 final at the Sage earlier in the year… http://www.thesagegateshead.org/about-us/landmark-building/
I came across this town in the South Island of NZ – it’s imaginatively titled signs leave you under no illusion as to where you’re passing through. On a serious note I took them for a friend who is currently fighting the big C and who is a true inspiration. His blog is a humbling, hilarious and massively emotional read – Think Strong Milton! – www.kickingcancerinthenuts.blo
I started the day with a walk along the shore at Kaikoura on the East coast of the South island of New Zealand. The sea mist was heavy but through the gloom I found the most amazing seal colony: 20-30 of them on the beach, rocks and in the grass!
A few hundred kilometers drive further down the coast and a lift from a friendly local later, I arrived in Christchurch where I spent a surreal afternoon walking around the CBD that’s was devastated by the earthquakes earlier this year.
A very sad sight and truly incomprehensible as to the scale of the damage; only today was part of the centre reopened.

Casinos are great for hangovers apparently… all the pure oxygen they pump in to keep the punters awake 🙂
So this is an Indian summer in Wales – magical !
