The short film I co wrote and directed BE NOW is in competition this week in #LasVegasLiftOff online festival.
LiftOff says ‘So many times our film festival has tended to stay away from these types of poetically narrated memoir-esq music videos, but for all the right reasons we knew that BE NOW was special’
See if you agree vegas-online.lift-off-festivals.com and vote in the comments section if you do, it would mean the world to me and everyone who work with me..
No I’m not talking about the British pop trio from the 80’s, although there is a tenuous link, as those boys originally formed their band ‘Living in a Box’ in the home of British steel, Sheffield and this box, created by the team at Minale + Mann is to enclose a single cast steel staircase. Bit of a challenge to photograph a glass box, but anyone that’s ever been on a shoot with me will testify that I do love a bit of a photographic conundrum, hope you like the results, and if you’re looking for a stunning staircase get yourself in touch with the MM team.
Well there it goes, 2015 is almost over, and 2016 is almost upon us, January is set to go past in a flash as I have lots of shoots coming up. While having a Christmas catch up on the magazine front, I came across this image in Dec ’15 Elle Deco, it’s great to see that the collection photography I shot for French Connection Home is so popular, you can see more from the shoot here and if you liked this collection the one I have just shot with Louisa Grey doing the styling is full of new surprises I’m sure you’ll love. See you in 2016.
Happy Friday to you all, hope you’ve been having a constructive day, working hard so to can with a clear conscience put your feet up for a well earned weekend off. Well I am in the process of having a reorganise on the old web site. While I am putting some of my latest work up I’m also adding back in some of my all time favourites. These images are one of those, this truly magical home belonging to Lorraine Kirk owner of a unique fashion store in Perry Street NYC, Geminola , we, Abigail Ahern & myself were there to shot the living room for Abi’s 1st book Girls Guide to Decorating, I arrived before Abi as she was in the hotel sorting out the rest of our week shooting in NYC. I was blown away by the house, and had to use all my Irish Blarney to talk Lorraine into allowing us to stay a little longer than planned to shoot the rest of the house. This all happen back in 2008, see it is an oldie, but I remember it so clearly as if it were yesterday. I still love these images we made that day. Lorraine’s style is so distinctive, you can tell that everything is there because there is a reason for it to be there, and it just works, hope you like them as much as I do. My newly organised folio will be getting launched on Monday. Have a great weekend.
Wouldn’t you want the ‘winter blues’ if they looked like this? It’s my third anniversary shooting with French Connection – well 3 seasons anyway – so appropriately I have featured a fabulous blue leather sofa, designed for the ongoing collaboration with DFS – you knew that the ‘thing’ for a third anniversary is leather surely. Teamed with their amazing accessories, I think it’s a killer combination. I love the brass standard lamp, and under strict instructions, will be purchasing a couple for the missus

I have been working with Abi for a long time now and am pleased to say we are still speaking, and I’m proud to show you the new cover for a book we did together last year – though why I’m showing you the cover as there is no bloody photo on it, I don’t know, but my photos are inside. The book was released on 23rd April and a signed copy can be pre-ordered from Abigail’s shop www.abigailahern.com also available to order from www.wordery.com and www.amazon.co.uk
Ooo la! la! as I said yesterday to French Connections latest homeware collection, which is now online, sorry I was a bit to keen to get in out there and only found out later that it didn’t go live until the afternoon, so here it is again FC Home
I just managed to sneak in to see the Guy Bourdin exhibition at Somerset House before it closed on the 15th March. It was intriguing, funny, sexy, weird, provocative, indulgent – it is a wonderful reminder of what can be achieved when abundant creative freedom is afforded the artist
