Last year my work was pretty much all photography but this year my workload has taken a foray into the world of video and editing and is consuming a lot of my time now. Here is the new video from the talented Mark Northfield which I shot with stylist and make up artists Ian Massa Harris and Jae Pii Goldie. Like all videos that are apparently simple to effect (lip synch at normal time by recording with the music running at 50% time to give the hands some ‘speed’ and effect a transformation in the time allowed by the track, it turned out to be anything but simple when it came to matching the music when sped up to normal time largely due to the differing audio/video/web compression rates! What you learn along the way!!!

Some people reckon that one’s wedding day should be unforgettable…
For one couple it most certainly was. The day arrived and after weeks of rain and storms one could indeed breathe a sigh of relief as the sun shone in the relatively calm and upmarket neighbourhood of Lincolns Inn Fields. The chauffeur arrived in the gorgeous vintage Roller and lets face facts, the couple looked good. So what now could possibly go wrong? What?
Ah yes; choosing to get married in style the very same day the World Naked Bike Ride descends on the square and takes over! The couple stared out of the luxurious gas guzzling limo’s windows askance at the naked, wigged, painted, pierced, and tattooed people that now surrounded them on their bikes, unicycles, and skates all protesting about the worlds reliance on oil. Where they might have liked to wave at the general wellwishers, they got an eyeful of crossbars and genitals, – and why not? They’ll never forget their wedding day. To be perfectly frank they missed a photo opportunity and a half – if they had got out and walked amongst the crowd they could have had some lovely pics for the mother in law’s mantelpiece.….so where was that wedding photographer????
