Zebra Awards Logo

8 Pictures Judged As Finalists In Black & White Photo Competition

Astonished and overjoyed to share that that eight of my photographs reached the finals of the BW specialist competition, the 4th TZIPAC Zebra Awards.

 

Seven of the images were shot on Olympus OM-D cameras (E-M1 and E-M5 Mark II) and one of the images (the urban dance image) was shot on a Leica Monochrom.

Whilst non of the images went onto win, having eight photographs get into the finals is pretty special! Huge congratulations to the winners; there was some exceptional photography.

 

UK Picture Editors’ Guild Awards Finalist

UKPEG VIDEOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR

Thrilled to share some great news! Honoured to have been selected as a finalist in the UK Picture Editors’ Guild Awards for my short film, Taxi Driver. The highly-acclaimed UK Picture Editors Guild Awards competition is distinctive in that panel of judges consists only of working picture editors from national and regional newspapers, and international photo agencies, assessing the thousands of entries from professional photographers from throughout the media.

I’d like to congratulate all my fellow finalists and look forward to seeing you all on the award’s ceremony.

The short film is a look at a day in the life of a London black cab driver. It was shot on a pair of Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II cameras and a selection of M.Zuiko lenses. Full details here.

Well, it’s not every day one gets invited to Hollywood for an awards ceremony; this was something I will definitely cherish. I was somewhat shocked to find that my short film on the Electric Coffee Company was shortlisted in the “Official Selection”: Best mini film or documentary. To then find out that the awards were to be in Hollywood became almost funny; my short film was in a Hollywood award’s ceremony!

Sadly the film didn’t win its section, but in all honesty, I had seen four films (out of ten nominated finalists) in my section which were great, so wasn’t thinking I had a chance of winning. What was special though was realising I was the only solo film maker; the others were all either TV companies or production companies. Not too shabby to be a finalist in this talented group I guess!

For those interested in the technical aspects, the film was entirely shot using a Leica M (Type 240) using a Leica 28mm Summicron ASPH, 35mm Summilux ASPH FLE and 50mm Noctilux ASPH, with some shots using a Leica OUFRO macro adapter. Ambient audio recorded on the internal microphone and interview recorded on a Roland R26 using a Rode lavalier microphone. Edited using FCP X. Partially colour graded in “Color” by Neil Patience ( patience.tv ). Final grading with FCP X and Film Convert. A Manfrotto 561BHDV video monopod was used for all shots apart from the interview, for which a Gitzo video tripod was used. I also used a Lee RF75 filter holder & hood, along with Lee ND filters.
