When director Darren Price and DOP David Wakeley needed to seamlessly match up multiple tracking shots on their latest TVC for Dominos Pizza they turned to the Cinedrive system to provide a compact and reliable motion control setup for the shoot. Shooting with the RED EPIC mounted on the Cinedrive was a breeze with minimal setup and calibration time. Controlling Slide, Pan, Tilt and focus – all from the on screen interface and the ability to keyframe and ‘nudge’ the focus around for each new setup made the whole process pretty painless. The rig was able to perform an accurate repetition of the move for the whole day. It just worked! For more info about how to use Cinedrive on your shoot contact me.

 I had the privilege of working with Tony Bilson on this cover and food story for Selector Magazine. Tony was a gracious guest in the studio and we certainly ate well that day! Beautiful styling as always by Michaela Le Compte and food prep by the awsome Julie Ballard. Thanks to the Selector team for another great shoot.

In October I headed off to King Island for McCann to shoot a series of landscapes and food shots for some of the King Island Dairy’s iconic cheeses. We spent 8 days scouring this beautiful rugged island for images that would tell the unique story of the fabulous products that come from this place of extremes. We chased the weather and subjected the gear and the crew to some challenging conditions but ended up (I think) with some beautiful images and a stand out campaign. Here’s the first two ads off the press. Also check the Instagram feed to the right for some of the behind the scenes shots of our trip.
