Johnny Wore Black: Up in Flames

Johnny Wore Black‘s latest video for Up In Flames was shot over two rather wet days in a derelict brick factory in West Sussex about a month ago. Fronted by osteopath and stuntman Johnny Cohen, Johnny Wore Black’s music is fully or haunting poetical lyrics. Up in Flames was shot on the Red One camera with a full professional crew more often seen on big budget hollywood fare and brought many of the toys from  them, stunt fighting, sets on fire and smoke. Directed another stuntman come director John Newton, Up in Flames is the  follow up to Johnny’s previous single All The Rage. I shot the stills using available light and a few HMI’s which lit the video shoot. Post production was achieved using Apples aperture and Adobe Photoshop

It’s also subject to a little pixie dust as you’re not one hundred percent sure how the image will come out as its subject to so many more factors than electronics and computer logarithms.

Shamaila Khan Album Cover

Last Friday Shahid Bawa, Shamaila Khan’s producer dropped by the office and gave me a copy of Shamaila Khans new CD with one of my photos adorning the front of it. As the Canon 5D is out on hire, I took this with my iPhone.

 

 

 

The album cover was shot whist we were shooting the video for her next single, Dum Se Dum at Greenford Studios in London. The video was shot on the Red camera and directed by Adam Coop of Angelic Films. Here are a few more images from the shoot.

Truck Festival 2010

Every year Truck Festival brings a few sleepy fields in Oxfordshire to life.  These photos where shot on an acoustic stage, a collection of hay bales I fashioned into a makeshift set, so we could video the bands playing unplugged for Truck Festival and Clubhouse Records. The videos can be found on YouTube
