A little throwback to a music video I was DOP for. Jonathan Boulet’s ‘This Song Is Called Ragged’. It was a very DIY affair, and I ended up putting any fund’s I was to be paid into the Pyrotechnic’s pocket to make sure we got maximum effect from what we planned to do to Jonathan in the clip! All a bit of mad fun in the end, fires and beers, guns, explosives and illegality too boot. Good times.
I was recently approached by Damon Cameron of Collider to supply footage of Mick Fanning for his Audi Symmetry TVC. I supplied around 10 shots and the shot selected was from a shoot we did in Angourie a few years ago and was shot on a Phantom Flex in a custom water housing at 800fps.
I received a Bronze Award for the above commercial in the International Advertising category of the ACS awards on the weekend. It was an honour to be in a room with so many talented people and to be awarded in a category that has some of the best entries of all categories. Congratulations to all the recipients on the night and to the inductee’s.
Would also like to thank my Family for all their belief and support over the years and Takao and Aquiles at Cinoptix for everything you have done for me along the way.
In July last year I flew down to Adelaide and worked with Ben Shirley ACS on the feature he was shooting, ‘The Pack’. He wanted to shoot some sequences on the Phantom 4K with Anamorphic glass, so I set it all up for him and went light on our infrastructure to get the job done with no fuss. Looking forward to seeing how it all comes out. (Phantom 4K supplied by Cinoptix)
A flashback to the first time I shot Rip Curl International’s ‘My Bikini’ Campaign with Alejandra Guilmant. This is an edit that was put together outside of the campaign from mostly unused footage.
Rip Curl’s latest My Bikini campaign. Shot in Samoa.
In 2008 I was asked to shoot stills for Red Bull on the strike mission that Ross Clarke-Jones and Tom Carroll were doing to Shipsterns Bluff in Tasmania. The weather was predicted to be stormy and the swell was supposed to be in the 12-15 feet range. When we woke we were greeted with snow on the beach as we headed past the cape on our way to the break, the bitter cold made worse by the strength of the wind and the sea spray.
Ross surfed, suffered and conquered the conditions in true maniacal style. It was a long, cold and arduous day that was thoroughly enjoyed by all who were lucky enough to be on hand to witness the mayhem that is Ross and Tom.

A little flashback to the days when the majority of my work was stills based. Nick Gregory shot in studio for Electric’s Wild Things campaign.
A few years back we ventured to Red Mountain in British Columbia and shot with the Nils Arvidsson. We shot Phantom and Timeslice, this is a timeslice moment from that shoot. 30 Nikon D300 cameras in a 120 degree ark at the peak of the mountain in the back country. Quite a feat!
Whilst on assignment to a remote island French Polynesia, we spotted a swell headed for Teahupoo that would coincide with our return to Papeete. This is a few waves of Jack Robinson from the morning shot on a Red Epic and 50mm Arri Ultra Prime.
