This summer we have been privileged to work on a number of film projects, documenting artists at work. Among these are William Tucker RA and sculptor Laurence Edwards.

We have had some incredible artworks in the studio recently, from both new and established clients.

Other projects include a year-long time-lapse sequence for Gloucester Cathedral and we are continuing some exciting work using our photogrammetry rig, to which we have been able to add a further sixteen cameras, meaning even sharper results.

Gallery news

In May we visited Photo London at Somerset House and found so much inspiration – the quality and variety of work was so impressive, celebrating the camera’s unique capability to freeze a moment in time.

Steve is currently away in East Africa, climbing in the Rwenzori mountains – also known as the ‘Mountains of the Moon’ a reference to a description by Claudius Ptolemy – and first photographed by early 20th century Italian photographer Vittorio Sella, who formed part of an expedition in 1906 to document and record the mountain range, its shrinking glaciers and its diverse and sometimes unique plant and animal life.

Communication is almost impossible but we are certain that Steve is viewing his surroundings through a Hasselblad lens and will return with a wealth of compelling and beautiful images, a selection of which we hope to show you in our gallery where we will present our next show ‘Mountains of the Moon’ opening Saturday 18th August. Look out for an invitation, we hope to see you there!
