10/05/17 : BARRATT HOMES
I am excited to be working closely with the UK’s largest housebuilder Barratt Homes to document projects across the Midlands. I have used a careful combination of location lighting kit and techniques (see previous post) to improve on ambient light, highlighting the attributes of each room. View images here.

12/04/17 : LOCATION LIGHTING
I recently invested in a location lighting kit for interiors. Three powerful monolights, a huge softbox, umbrellas, reflectors and attention to detail will be used to mimic daylight; creating soft ‘window’ light in poorly lit showrooms, making the sun shine on cloudy days and improving on any ambient lighting situation. The kit synchronises with small off-camera flashguns where space is limited for versatility in any situation.
This makes commissioning more affordable by avoiding third-party hire fees totalling at least £160 per day.

05/04/17 : CORONA - WOLFGANG BUTTRESS
I had the pleasure of working closely with Wolfgang Buttress to photograph his latest project – Corona. The brise soleil uses NASA satellites to monitor solar flares which provides feedback through fibre optic cables. We were on site from pre-dawn to capture the installation in the changing ambient light. View images here.
