  2. In March 2012 I was privileged to spend near on a month tramping round Nevada/California/Arizona, pointing my camera at those things that made the days special. Ostensibly I was there to finish shooting Navaro (a short film for Flexifoil, coming soon), but in my downtime I wandered aimlessly with my good friend Mark Esper (vimeo.com/esper).

    This short film tries to capture the essence of those aimless days; the sense of discovery, and feeling of joy at being alive in that light. It was made all the sweeter because of an early morning shoot with Lenkadu.

    Photographic aimlessness can be an unbelievably awarding, but also desperately frustrating endeavour [for want of a better word]. In the still image it can result in a glorious visual that needs no excuse at all - it can just be, a wonderful photograph in and of itself. Make that image move, however, and a world of doubt can suddenly assail: what's the point? What is this saying, or not, [as the case may be]? What "story" am I trying to tell?

    In the end, I gave up caring. This film isn't trying to tell a story, or be anything, other than a quiet celebration of the days I spent with my camera and some wonderful people in astounding places. The only premeditation on my part was in the form of the soundtrack, which simply reflects what I was listening to at the time; and fortuitously (inevitably) ended up being quite appropriate really.

    Two people need massive thanks for being instrumental in the making of this: Lenkadu for bearing with me during the bitter cold of dawn in the Mojave; and Mark Esper for his sage advice.


    This was the first time I'd used my new 5D mk3 in anger, and in my eagerness I forgot to disable in-camera sharpening and contrast. Now it's all setup the way I like it, but when shooting this film there was too much in camera sharpening (i.e. more than none), which is difficult to deal with after the fact.


    Please take a look at my new project:


    I am now able to offer Arri Amira hire at significantly reduced rates for projects where I can accompany the camera and either assist or shadow an experienced Director of Photography. Please don't hesitate to contact if you have an interesting project for which you need equipment.
