I first worked with John Walsh of Walsh Brothers Films back in 2008 on the Prime Ministers Fellowship. John and his team were filming for The British Council, and educating the young British students for their forthcoming trips across the globe. Since then i've had the pleasure of working with John many times. 'Toy Soldiers' was put together and Directed by John, and explores the thoughts and feelings of children who's fathers were at war. Aiden, the boy in the picture I took for the show below, very sadly lost his father when he was 8 years old. These children tell their story from their perspective. Please head over to Johns site and watch Toy Soldiers
Some of you might know, that during the summer, Aussie TV and Radio sensations - 'Hamish and Andy' were over here in London filming their new TV show 'Hamish and Andy's Euro Gap Year'. I was pulled in to do some Set Stills Photography, Promotion shots and some behind the scenes photography too. I have to admit, before I got the call about working on the show - I had never heard of them. After a quick Google and Facebook search, I soon realized that these cheeky smilers have a big following on the south side! 1.6million facebook likers and half a million followers on twitter! Zoiks... i hoped they were cool!?
Our first shoot was set for some calamity capers around the London Eye, Westminster and then onto St Johns Wood for some Beatles Abbey Road fun! within 2 mins of meeting the guys i was pleasantly surprised at how absolutely lovely they were! Grounded, polite and great fun! from there on in .... it was all easy!
I hope you like the images and will check out these chaps... Hamish and Andy's Euro Gap Year is showing on ITV4 at the moment, and i guarantee you'll be smiling if you tune in! Enjoy!
Characters on the underground ....I didn't manage to get a shot of this man giving this girl filthy looks for doing her makeup next to him ... it was hilarious![gallery]
