Set Construction

For the last few weeks our year have been divided into 4 groups of 9-10 people to create something very different to what any other photography course does in the UK. We have been working together on a set construction project that involves building a 'room with a view' in a studio, shooting it with large format cameras and destroying it within the space of a few weeks. The projects have to be original and ambitious.

Our group came up with the idea of a conspiracy theorists basement, filled with posters, newspaper cuttings and random old objects. It really is amazing how far we have come in just a couple of weeks of stress, development, joy, arguments, relief and tension. Here is a sneak preview of one of our images from yesterdays shoot.

Thanks to our group - April Chesters, Caitlin Macrae, Dom Doran, Hitomi Yusa, Katie Noonan, Lee Jackson, Matt Caldaralo, Sarah Perkins and Vicky Parker. Also thanks to our model - Andy Banks.

Await time lapse of the past few weeks when its all complete on wednesday...

Saw these guys last sunday, pretty epic to say the least. An epic set of tunes and a very clever marketing technique have made these guys big quickly. Well worth a look.

Recently re-discovered my love for the series - Silicon Valley, 07 by Gabriele Basilico. I saw the exhibition at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) 2 years back and WOW! Its epic. I purchased the book early last year and it is just short of incredible. Amazing survey of an area of total unfamiliarity by one of the greatest Urban Landscape photographers. Well worth a look.

An epic little video by high-rolling death defying photog/video guru that goes by the name of Mickey Smith. Fun and well worth the watch.

As much as i dislike the sport itself, i have an ongoing passion of floodlit pitches at night. I managed to find a really nice all-weather set up on the way out of Plymouth at Laira Community College. I set up my camera about an hour and a half before dark and took a few shots, on medium & large format (all on my Sinar f2 54 camera). I kept playing around with lenses and formats until it got dark and managed to get a pretty cool triptych using the three 5x4 shots i took. As Darkness Falls... The last two shot on roll film in a 6x9 back.


Managed to get myself out into the hideous winter weather to take this shot at home over the Christmas period.
Shot on Kodak Portra 160nc 5x4 sheet film.
