glide cam and pain

I was helping a friend out shooting some stuff for his show reel his name is Rob and this is his website http://mycreativedge.com/ and I was asked to shoot a scene from angels in america, in the original it is a steady cam shot with a few cut aways in between. So I thought it would be an interesting idea to shoot it all in one shot. Rob had borrowed a glide cam and I mounted the 7d on it.

Thats the glide cam, and after an 8 min take it is a total killer! The shots are nice very fluid and look like a steady cam rig (ish) but the pain!!! The main issue with it is the handle it is incredibly difficult to hold steady for any length of time.

Ill post some of the tracking shots when they are done so you can see what it looks like.

  3. I got this one on Amazon. It doesn't work for heavy cameras, but for cameras about 2 lbs and under it does a nice job.glidecam

what happens when you use a hassleblad h4d to shoot a music festival?

So a couple of weeks ago I got the privilege to run some great photographers for the new festival in Dundee called Carnival 56 and this took quite alot of my time and so i didn't get to shoot as much as I would have liked to but I was lucky enough to be allowed on stage for Rudimentals headline set and I thought it would be a good time to crack out the hassy and here are some of the pics:












Its safe to say it was alot of fun using the hassy!!!!


6 months with my Hasselblad h4d

I've now had my Hasselblad for 6 months and I thought I would write up a few observations about it. To start - I have pretty much my whole life wanted a Hasselblad I would say I do have mild GAS (gear acquisition syndrom) in the lightest most un-serious way!  having said that i did just clear out my collection of totally broken unusable cameras (about 15) which i really didn't want to throw away but couldn't be bothered to fix as they were pretty much in an horrific state! Thats not including the 40 something actual working cameras I have but anyway...

So I obviously want the Hasselblad h6d but didnt have £35k to spend so I ended up getting the h4d 40 with an 80m lens and 2 batteries within the budget I had.

There are many reasons why I wanted a Hasselblad but the main one was the fact that you get a medium format look from a medium format camera and its impossible to replicate that with a dslr and I had a lot of misses with my film hassy so was keen to look at the digital…

an epic shoot day

so a few weeks ago I had a free day and I wanted to see how many models I could shoot in a day. The reasoning behind this is because im well into planning a new book and I want to create alot of images for the book but I want to do it in quite a precise way. And so I enlisted the help of an epic team - these guys: @ingridperegrina_makeup @laurenadessimua @kim_boyd_mua @jennaclaytonmua @leona.provence @ellie_mccallumm @katmacmellon @ionacrawford

And we shot 17 models in one day took over 4000 images and I spent quite a long time editing as a result! But here are a few of the images! Hit up my instagram to see loads more!!! :
