Ballie Ballerson popup ball pit bar, London












Ballie Ballerson is an underground space themed ball pit filled with 200,000 plastic balls, inflatable rings and foam toys all set to a soundtrack of funk and soul from the DJs. 

The ball pit was arguably the best part of any soft play area as a child and now you can relive your lost youth, except this time you’ll be fuelled by E numbers and alcohol as they serve up retro sweet cocktails – we’ll be ordering the Dippie Dabberson, a mix of cherry brandy, sloe gin and magic dust. Head upstairs after for the likes of chicken kiev balls, fried cheese balls and Yorkshire pudding balls. All about the balls.

Photos taken by myself at the soft launch in November 2016.

TRACEY EMIN & STEPHEN WEBSTER





Images from a recent Fine Jewellery collaboration x Net-a-porter.com to co-inside for the launch of Steven Webster x Tracey Emin jewellery collection. This shoot was a lot of fun as this time we were working with neon-light and minimal light plus a tight deadline!

Collection entitled 'I promise to Love you.'

Jewellery designers often look to wordplay and nature for inspiration, however Stephen Webster and Tracey Emin have just raised the bar by launching a 35-piece collection based on Emin’s handwritten scrawls and woodland sketches, including delicate pendants, bracelets, ear cuffs and rings, set in 18K yellow gold.

Webster has reinvented the British artist’s iconic neon signs as intricate pieces of jewellery - ‘I Promise to Love You’, ‘Kiss’ and ‘With You I Breathe’ are scrawled across necklaces and statement cuffs in Emin’s signature rolling handwriting while her celebrated drawings of animals are translated into whimsical charms and tiny pendants. Signet rings and gypsy bracelets complete the collection, referencing her childhood growing up in a seaside town.

Aimee Betts x Ilado Paris





London based Textile Designer Aimee Betts creates hand braided accessories, fabrics & furnishings inspired by the traditions of embroidery & knotting. For her first collaboration with Ilado she has created a collection of 4 vibrant bracelets, combining colourful-knotted cotton thread with the beautiful rose-gold Bola.

I was invited to her studio to observe her making the collection and take her portrait one sunny Sunday afternoon. We chatted lots about the inspiration behind the collection, art, culture, the history of colour and all things colourful...what a delightful afternoon!

CHANEL at Net-a-porter








Images from a recent shoot with the creative studio team at Net-a-porter.com. I was asked to shoot various test shoots in the run up to exclusive pop up shop launch last month. This involved the opportunity to create some unique lighting for still life and model imagery which led on to also shooting the main campaign imagery too! 

There were many test shoots involving a very snazzy slo-mo camera to capture the jewellery falling from the air, the tricky task of photographing gold on black and overcoming the reflection issues to mastering the art of posing a model with limited movement available in order to have all the product visible whilst coming up with original poses...Along with a brilliant yet small creative team with shot the whole Chanel campaign in house at Net-a-porter.com.
