Vintage Inns and our friends at Grayling recently had us document their James Martin pie making master class at Aveqia in London.  As well as having a great fun day with the food god,   I also had lunch made and served by James himself.   It’s not often a celeb chef puts a dollop of mash on my plate!

Here is a small selection of images from the day!

There is a nationally important by-election taking place in Notts right now… Not that you would notice from our local media’s conspicuous absence….

I spent a few days on assignment for the Sunday Times last week ,  working with A. A. Gill and then on Saturday being dispatched on a watching brief…

With half the cabinet expected,  plus Farage and co,  I turned up at a reasonable hour to ensure we didn’t get caught out… Good normal practice.   I was pretty surprised,  in fact gobsmacked,  to be the only  press photographer who bothered to turn up,  until the afternoon when the Post and AFP turned up for a scheduled UKIP event…

So,  with journalist in tow,  we managed to lock onto Farage and got a nice exclusive day with him…  And these images are a black and white edit from the larger mix that I shot.

Included in the mix is a photograph of  the only person in Bingham to challenge Farage over his election material… Questioning why benefit abusing Brits should  have priority for housing over hard working and contributing immigrants…  As the UKIP leaflet proposes.    A nice story that should have been picked up by the local media… If they had gone out into the field,  instead of waiting to have it served on a plate…

All of these are shot on the Canon 5dmk3′s… The 17-40l,  and the 85 f1.8. ( that lens just gets better very day!)

We were blessed recently when we were asked to produce a short event film about the launch of Nottingham City Transports new fleet of Enviro buses.

There had been a considerable amount of discussion and planning in advance as to how the buses would be arranged,  and how we would shoot their arrival in the Market Square for the big day,  and as it turned out,  we could not have been more fortunate as the lighting and positioning married up in almost perfect harmony as the sun rose over the council house.

With our entire crew on duty,  Charlotte and Dave working on stills,  and Doug and Abi working on the video production,  it was a full on day.  In the end we produced a 6.5 minute video that nicely shows the entire day,  captures some action,  interviews some of NCT’s customers,  and shows off the new buses.

Whilst we had planned the general feel for the day,  it’s interesting to note that virtually all of the content is off the cuff.  Even the interviews are off the cuff and we had no idea of what our subjects would say before they sat down!

As it turned out they were great!

Everyone here at Page One would like to thank Mr NCT and the rest of the gang at NCT for giving us the chance to shoot this,  it was a great day!

For all of you techno types out there,  everything was shot on Canon 5dMk3′s,  audio is all from our Rode shotgun mics,  and the lighting on board is LED.

We hope you enjoy the film….
