Recent personal projects, commissions and behind the scenes of the studio
Normally the large aqua splash pool in Jersey is shut at this time, however, we had taken it over for an underwater Getty shoot. The shoot was centred around different types of pain relief both mental and physical with the rehabilitation and healing that go with them, this left a large scope for interpretation and techniques.
Repetitive point and shoot, that is how we were beginning to feel after years of shooting with Canon, which although are great cameras and cameras we continue to use in certain situations. We felt that we had become automated in our approach to visual story telling, something had to change.

I've always had a fascination with our world below the breaking waves. To me, it symbolizes the world that we live in today, the calm before every storm, the beauty, and the chaos. The reefs that survive and many that have gone, fish numbers are down in oceans, where others they thrive. We live in a beautiful world but we must search further to find it and work harder to protect it.
"Animals have come to mean so much in our lives. We live in a fragmented and disconnected culture. Politics are ugly, religion is struggling, technology is stressful, and the economy is unfortunate. What's one thing that we have in our lives that we can depend on? A dog or a cat loving us unconditionally, every day, very faithfully."

We believe the meaning of life is to find your gift, and the purpose of life is to give it away. The Character Project challenges us to think deeper, to embrace and to actively acknowledge our uniqueness by having different identities that represent us...
Our beautiful earth is lovely to see.
Trees grow high as high as the sky.
Birds sing in the sky to tell the good earth why,
They love to fly in the sky.
The sun shines into our earth's life.
While the moon gives us light in the night.
In the earth's land forms there are people near and far,
That are playing right now on our beautiful earth's floor.
This is our earth, our beautiful earth.
