Haven’t posted anything in a very long time! Thought it was time to do so and introduce the Shuttle!


ZCars GSX-R Mini Minus & Carbon ’72 Mini 20XE

Ever since I saw these Minis at London 2 Brighton 2011 I was in total awe, from the crazy but awesome Zcars GSX-R engine install to the Carbon cladded Vauxhall engined mini. There are so many things you can do with a Mini and these two examples are two of the best!

A big thank you goes out to the owners Andy and Dougie who allowed me the pleasure of shooting their Minis as well as being patient enough for the editing to be completed.

Shot with:

Canon 60d
Sigma 30mm
Tokina 11-16mm
Giottos 8351B
Glidetrack Shooter SD
Flycam Nano

Edited in:

My friend’s wedding… video

Posted: November 27th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Videography, Wedding | 1 Comment »

Congratulations again to my friend Jonathan and his beautiful bride Polly. This was the first wedding I had the pleasure of filming and editing, hopefully the first of many!

It was a pretty nerve-racking video to shoot and edit as I guess I was responsible for documenting a special day for the couple that had taken over a year to prepare and countless hours of preparation. Safe to say that they liked it and I’m so happy they did and still do.

Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Coupeé… CHEERS!


From Nikon to Canon

Posted: November 27th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Freelance Projects, Videography | No Comments »

It’s been a while since I’ve posted but I guess it’s for a good reason. Since finishing the last video and finishing up teaching at college (for now) I’ve landed a new job which I’ve been at for the last 6 months and changed from Nikon to Canon. I loved teaching but I needed a bit more cash to live and found a great job that allows me to use my product design skills as well as my newly acquired video skills, which in turn helped fund a new camera.

It was a pretty successful transition from the Nikon D5000 to the Canon 60D, I learned the basics on the Nikon then just totally expanded them on Canon. The Canon allowed far more control over the HD video feature full HD and great sound (even though I picked up a Zoom H1). Then I went on a little accessories spree and picked up a whole load of lens and adpators.

With work being busy it is now very difficult to find the time for personal projects but before I got the Canon I did do another club video with an awesome video production company called PlusOne.
