Actor Grant Masters
After working with the charming actor Grant Masters on the film Transience earlier this year, Grant and I arranged a shoot to update his acting head shot. Grant explained that his last head shot was good but heavily retouched and like a true actor he wanted something with more character.
Grant was a pleasure to work with, totally engaging throughout the shoot and most importantly was chuffed with the results.
Actress – Sophie Stone
Introducing the incredible actress, Sophie Stone. Sophie was the first profoundly deaf actress to be accepted into RADA. Sophie asked if I could shoot a new head shot for her ages ago so I was delighted when dates aligned and she came over. She was a dream to shoot, captivating eyes and such a gorgeous human being. Wishing her every success with her career.
I’m currently working on another feature film for Goldfinch Studios up in Selby. This sci-fi is written and directed by Carl Strathe and produced by Charlette Kilby. Its got a great look and feel to it and the cast appear to be 100% committed to the script.
Waiting for Anya
Much of my work comes out of the blue with hardly any notice at all and thats exactly what happened last week when I received a call from film pr, Eric Woollard-White, asking if I could travel to France, a couple of days later to cover a film set visit by the author Sir Michael Morpurgo. His novel ‘Waiting for Anya’ has been adapted for screen by young screenwriter Toby Torlesse for Goldfinch Studios. Directed by Ben Cookson with a very cool cast including Jean Reno, Anjelica Huston and rising star Noah Schnapp, Stranger Things, this has all the ingredients of a great film.
We drove down to Lescun on the French/Spanish boarder on Friday, shot both stills and video all day Saturday and then drove all the way back Sunday. Great road trip!
Noah posted a short teaser clip from the interview I shot on his Instagram page which had over 800,000 views. Well done young man!

The Revenger:An Unromantic Comedy
Throughout the whole of July I was employed as stills photographer for this low budget UK feature film.
Written and directed by Mark Murphy starring Rob Kazinsky, Samantha Barks, Tony Way, Rachael Hurd-Wood, Ed Speleers, Ivan Kaye and Anna Chancellor.
Rare for me to be employed for the entire length of the production but with a great cast and cohesive crew I enjoyed every second of it.
Here are a few of my favourite shots.

Solis Film – BTS
My last job of 2016 was shooting stills on a new Sci Fi feature film entitled Solis. The American actor and all round legend Steven Ogg of ‘The Walking Dead’, ‘Westworld’ and ‘GTA’ fame embraced the lead role and the entire film was shot in a green screen studio, GSP studios, Yorkshire.
